The SC-1523-K is THX Select2 Plus Certified, offering startling surround sound in rooms up to 3,000 cubic feet in size with a 12 foot or greater viewing distance from the screen. The SC-75 also supports high-definition audio formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio, as well as DTS® Neo:X surround, providing a 3-D surround experience for up to 9.2 channels.

Rated at 135 Watts x 9 channels, the SC-1523-K is a formidable multi-channel AV receiver. While lesser amplifiers’ output diminishes as channels are added, the SC-1523-K has the power to drive multiple channels simultaneously with no significant drop in per-channel output. This ensures that you’ll enjoy the full impact and dynamic range of high-resolution multi-channel audio as never before. Plus, the power consumption of the Digital Class D3 Amplifier is well below that of analog amplifiers, helping you to save energy, too.

4K Pass-Through
4K Ultra HD Pass-through is the next-generation standard of ultra-high video resolution, boasting 3,840 x 2,160 (24 Hz/25 Hz/30 Hz) pixels or 4,096 x 2,160 (24 Hz) pixels. That’s four times the current HD standard! All of our 2013 receivers can pass through 4K video signals to any compatible display, offering the highest quality image available.

Unleash Your Music with AirPlay®
In addition to being DLNA® 1.5 and Windows® 8 certified, the SC-1523-K features AirPlay. AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream iTunes music from your PC, Mac, iPhone®, iPad® or iPod® touch through your home theater system at the touch of a button. AirPlay also lets you view song information, including title, artist, track time, as well as the album art on a connected display. And because it supports network audio sources in other zones, you can even send music to another room.
