Fantastic for its price ... and for twice the price

Alex Dunavski, Amazon

  • Summary: The Pioneer Elite A-20 in the Direct mode and with volume control set at 12 o’clock, at the 12ft listening distance fully fills my 20 x 13 ft room with complete clarity, great dynamics, and spectral balance, no audible distortion, and surprisingly wide soundstage, via AudioQuest’s Go-4 cabling,...

and am very pleased with the sound

  • Summary: Bought this so I could use my (husband's) old Pioneer turntable to play our vinyl collection, and am very pleased with the sound, simplicity, and also ability to run other components through it to speakers (CD/computer, DVD, TV, iPad for Pandora).

I am surprised and very happy with the performance of the Pioneer

Ian A. Cowan, Amazon

  • Summary: Bought this Pioneer as a 'temporary' amp. Driving KEF LS-50's and alternately Gallo Classico 4's. I am surprised and very happy with the performance of the Pioneer, and , as yet, haven't felt the driving urge to spend thousands upgrading.

Not nearly enough power for even average applications.

  • Summary: I was using this to power some Definitive Technology BP10 speakers (which are ver efficient and can be driven with small amounts of power). But this little Pioneer couldn't do the trick. To get life-like playback I had to crank the volume up to 75%. And I don't have a large listening room.

Overpriced Amplifier lacks any sound quality. Avoid Pioneer!

  • Summary: Another piece of equipment by Pioneer that has bad sound quality because of cheap build. Way overpriced and lacks any quality whatsoever.

Back To Bigger, Louder & More Beautiful . . . .

Sunday "SundayAtDusk", Amazon
26 October 2014
  • Summary: Pioneer . . . what memories that name brings back. I started off my music listening life with a little AM transistor radio and a little white earplug. As I was growing up, I moved up to bigger radios with FM bands, as well as a groovy one shaped like a love medallion that you wore around your neck!

Tons of Inputs on this simple 2-Channel Stereo Amplifier

Jacob & Kiki Hantla, Amazon
11 October 2014
  • Summary: I received the Pioneer Elite A-20 as a free review sample piece. It is an impressive piece of hardware, overkill for many who need a simple stereo amplifier. It does have a ton of analog RCA input sources, with three different output options: 1.

Too bright

andad, Richer Sounds
18 May 2015
  • Summary: Compared to my old amp, the A20 lacks bass definition and is too bright, which makes it rather tiring to listen too. Wish I had bought something warmer. Will let Richer's famed customer service try to sort me out. Very pleased with the TEAC 1260 CD, cables etc bought at the same time.
  • Pros: good value if you like it , treble detail
  • Cons: lacks bass clarity , lacks warmth
