Summary: If you don't own this, you are missing everything. This bad boy does it all and does all well. Masterfully controls all your electronics flawlessly. Easy to set-up and use. Great value as expected from Pioneer.
Summary: So I managed to snag this receiver for under $500 at Best Buy. This normally sells for $700, but was on sale for the week in the Magnolia section. This is replacing a bad Onkyo TX-NR609. I truly believed in Onkyo's products, but for some odd reason, lately, they have been making poor choices in materials to make a cheaper product. My Onkyo failed in 2 years of ownership. They did provide repair coverage for my unit, but I am moving on to a better brand, i think.
Great unit, ugly GUI, many streaming features, great buy

Summary: Setup was tough. It didnt sound right after the AUTOMATIC setup. I had to do a lot of adjustments to make it sound good. But once you set it all up to sound like you want it - this receiver is great. It has a ton of features but you MUST download "iControl 2013" App on your phone and you will be golden. Without the app its a little confusing to control features via remote. It has a uglyGUI as well. That is why phone app helps.
Summary: I was a little skeptical about the product coming from another Elite although older but more expensive piece of equipment , this one has still a beautiful sound ,I 'm very pleased with the product .
