ELITE by Pioneer offers a higher end alternative to the regular Pioneer audio video product line.

Every PIONEER® and ELITE® A/V receiver comes with Advanced Sound Retriever DSP technology, which significantly improves the sound quality of compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC, realizing an upper limit frequency of 20 kHz. This technology also enhances the audio quality of XM® and SIRIUS® Satellite Radio.


ELITE bluray players include an advanced 3D Noise Reduction circuit that monitors the four blurring effects that make up 3D Noise (chrominance, luminance, block and mosquito). The result is a picture virtually free of noise, blurring, distortion and other inconsistencies.

To enhance the performance of Bluray Disc® movies even further, Pioneer's proprietary and advanced
PureCinema™ Deinterlacer essentially eliminates lines that can negatively affect the viewing experience.

All these advanced video adjustments and noise reduction circuits help to ensure that you get the most out of all your Blu-ray and DVD discs. And better still, with the new Marvell® QDEO™ Processor now available in our Elite® BDP-09FD, utterly uncompromised format conversion and video processing have become the new standard.

ELITE features high end AV Receivers, DVD, Bluray players, and speakers with no compromise performance and extended warranties.

It wouldn't be an overstatement to call the new Elite SC-57 one of the most revolutionary receivers ever produced. Or that the industry has ever seen. Until now digital amplification - categorized as Class-D devices - have received little or no respect from a cautious and hesitant industry. Unable to conquer the challenges of "digital", A/V receiver manufacturers have sought refuge in the comfort zone of analog Class-A/B amplifiers. One problem with that is analog amplifiers have had essentially the same design for the last fifty years, leaving little room for further performance enhancements. Another is the multi-channel soundtracks now available on Blu-ray Disc simply cannot be maximized or enjoyed to their full potential through conventional analog A/B amplification. Pioneer understood early the massive power output potential of Class-D amplification, and made the bold decision to produce multi-channel amplifiers that more than rise to the occasion of bringing the new audio dimension that Blu-ray Disc provides to the home theater enthusiast. The Elite SC-57 is the third generation of Class-D amplifiers for Pioneer, and as such we've designated it in a class all its own:
