Fantastic unit as long as it doesn't break

Nicholas and Zarya Fogelson, Amazon
14 November 2014
  • Summary: My wife and I bought this unit to run our home theatre system 2 years ago and have been extremely happy with it, with one caveat. The VSX-53 is in the Elite line of Pioneer Amplifiers, which is their higher end line meant more for audiophiles and video enthusiasts.

Sounds great, HDMI inputs unreliable.

JB, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I've been a Pioneer fan for many years and have had a wide range of all their products. When I see the word "Elite" I expect a little more. After 2.5 years 3 of the HDMI inputs don't work.

Do yourself a favor and do not buy this receiver at any cost

Scott Goldstone, Amazon
5 December 2013
  • Summary: I owned this receiver for about 6-7 months and it has been incredibly frustrating, here’s my story: First off, I purchased it from Best Buy with an extended service plan so I have not run into any of the issues of non-warranty from Amazon.

Disgusted In Amazon Fullfillment Suppliers

peter shanley, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: This unit was determined to be defective by Pioneer. When asked about filing a warranty claim, Pioneer indicated that Amazon was not an authorized reseller or Pioneer Elite equipment. Further research has lead us to the fulfillment company Crawfords Superstore. They have been less than helpful.

Complicated as a love affair, but worth it.

fudney, Ebay
9 May 2013
  • Summary: This is my first new receiver in many years and oh my how things have changed. My old receiver is a Carver 5.1. This receiver is somewhat complicated to get up and running and then to use regularly, but it gives you great sound for the effort.

  • Summary: All Pioneer receivers from this year are defective. After a few years you will get error code "UE22" and the receiver will eventually produce no sound. Pioneer will not help you and the board is no longer available. DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER

tyler6040, Ebay
12 December 2012
  • Summary: awesome receiver-sounds much better than my previous Onkyo TX-SR-875 . my tv/movies/games have never sounded so good, especially the surround speakers. generates much less heat than the onkyo (this matters if you have it inside a cabinet). On screen menu easy to figure out.

This receiver is awful

David A. Graham, Amazon
13 November 2012
  • Summary: continuous quality issues since the day I bought to it, and now it finally crashed and burned because of an automatic 'fix' that Pioneer had it download from the web, and which completely screwed it up.
