Pioneer is the latest manufacturer to jump on the Dolby Atmos bandwagon announcing five new AV receivers, three of which will support the format.

The SC-LX58 (£1,399) arrives in August, followed by the SC-LX78 (£1,699) and flagship SC-LX88 (£2,199, pictured) in September. All three are 9-channel designs and according to Pioneer 'can be enabled for Dolby Atmos playback through a firmware update later this Summer'.

The other two models announced today, the SC-1244 (£799) and SC-2024 (£949), are both 7-channel designs and will be available from July.
