    Pioneer SC-LX89 replaces my old NAD T747. With bi-ampade fronts and center it has become a much better sound.

    Adequate future-proof for me with HDMI 2.0a, HDR pass trough, HDCP 2.2, Atmos and eventually DTS: X. It sounds really good in both stereo and surround sound, especially Atmos was a real treat! Plenty of inputs and therefore works excellently as HDMI switcher. As usual, very smooth calibration with MCACC, setting the time, however, needed a little fine-tuning. Nice bonus with USB DAC.
