Summary: I bought the SC-68 back in December of 2012. Since I bought the receiver, I have had nothing but problems with it. I want everyone to know that if you buy this receiver you will have problems.
Summary: I purchased my SC-68 from my local brick and mortar store, which are audiophile professionals. Although the purchase wasn't from Amazon, the decision to buy Pioneer over the Denon 4520ci was due to the reviews on Amazon; thank you!
Summary: I have been a Pioneer fan since 1976 when i bought my 1st cassette deck ... to my ELITE equipment in 90 (M72, C72) .. i just recently upgraded to an SC-68 and all i can say is Pioneer is going the way of all other equipment and service ... CRAP!!! SC-68 is a POS ... it is consistent ...
Summary: Very nice receiver sound quality is excellent setup you need to download the manual because it doesn't have it in the box. Other wise good packaging remote kind of cheap but what can you do other then this receiver as everything you need pioneer did great job building sc 68
Don't expect a warranty from Pioneer when you buy online

Summary: Just a word of caution: the Elite receivers are excellent and I have owned them for years and will be upgrading to another Elite in the future. However, Pioneer no longer authorizes any online dealers - and even units sold from authorized dealers via online venues do not come with a warranty.
Summary: Anxiously waited the day I ordered my SC-68, everything in time...today I receive and a little shipping misunderstanding, TheAUDIO VIDEO SALES GUYS called me in 5 secs after I sent them one email, andI received two emails back to back in seconds? AMAZING.
