High-end home theatre specialist Lexicon has partnered with the IMAX Enhanced program, announcing a compatibility update for its currently available MC-10 processor, and RV-9 and RV-6 AV receivers.

Lexicon’s receivers and processor will be firmware updated to reproduce the full dynamic range of a proprietary IMAX audio mix, translated for home theatre environments and delivered using a special variant of the DTS:X codec technology.

The Northridge-based maker has committed to supporting a line of IMAX Enhanced Lexicon AV receivers, compatible with the IMAX Enhanced audio.

IMAX Enhanced is a certification and licensing standard for consumer electronics products, from AVRs to TVs, to make the most of IMAX digitally re-mastered 4K HDR content. The promise is “a new level of quality in immersive sight and sound experiences for the home.”

To become IMAX Enhanced-certified, manufacturers must meet stringent performance standards, set by a certification committee comprised of IMAX and DTS engineers and Hollywood technical specialists.

The move brings Lexicon into a select group of IMAX Enhanced home cinema supporters, joining Arcam, Onkyo, Pioneer, Marantz and Denon.
