Summary: when it all comes down to it, pioneer always delivers the goods. they are one of the true audio companies that lay low, but release products that really " let the music do the talking." the sc-05 is fairly simple. fairly straight forward.
Summary: We were happy with the performance of the Pioneer SC-05 up until it failed. It's outside of warranty and repair costs are, it seems, astronomical for this unit. From talking with the local electronics company that manages repair and warranty; it seems Pioneer has had many issues with their digital...
Summary: I had to send this in for repair after just a couple hours of listening (would not power on). Three months later it was returned and worked fine. In fact it sounds great with lots of clean and refreshing power. But, six hours more listening and back into the shop.
Summary: Pioneer Elite has gotten back in the game with their ICEPower receivers. I have owned this receiver for about 7 months and it does everything extremely well. SACD, CD, Internet Radio, and USB (MP3 Files) all have fantastic punch and detail.
Summary: Ice power under 1500 bucks. Upconverting sucks but come on if your spending this kind of money what are you upconverting. Sound quality is plain and simple. NO other reciever will sound better than this one under 2500 dollars. Its big, its heavy and Home media gallery rocks.
Summary: Comments about Pioneer Elite SC-05 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver: Pioneer Elite series is true to it's reputation is one of the best in the Receivers industry. I am amazed by the versatility of the system, and I am recommending this series to all my friends.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
Summary: I can't say enough good things about this receiver. I hooked up my cable/dvr box, DVD player, VHS player, XBox 360, Nintendo WII, and sometimes have my ipod 5th gen plugged in. All inputs can be named so instead of seeing "HDMI 1", you see "Xbox 360" or whatever.
