But it if you can afford the best.

  • Summary: Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best AVR I have ever owned. I saw this unit come out in 2008 at $7,000 but it was out of my ballpark. Finally got a new one last year (2013) and could not be happier and only spent $3,000. It has iLink for pure Surround Sound, 6 HDMI inputs, count them, a total of 22 inputs (Digital and Analog). 3D workaround is with an OPPO BDP-103 with 2 outputs so one goes directly to the TV.

  • Summary: This the BEST AVR I bought in my life,in the past I bought SONY,ONKYO,DENON & recently (Istill have it)HARMAN KARDON,but nothing like this BEATIFUL MONSTER: PIONEER ELITE SC 09 TX, I REALLY RECOMEND THIS ONE TO A REAL AUDIO & VIDEO FAN. Before buy this one I thnk a lot in a YAMAHA RX Z11 TX & at the end I make my best choice.

Pioneer Elite SC09-TX

  • Summary: I purchased this unit at the end of 2010. When playing BD movies, sometimes there would be no sound at the start. I had to turn the system off and restart for the sound to come though. So this required a firmware update. The only was to get an update was to remove the receiver from the system and take it to an authorized service center. Once I got the receiver back, the next problem I had was a very loud popping noise when playing certain movies and music cd's.

Out of production

  • Summary: This was flagship rcvr and sounds fantastic, however it was blown out by pioneer at it's end of life in 2010 for around $3500. It is not hdmi 1.4 so won't do 3d video like newer avrs. It is an audiophile grade sound, but latest models w class d amps are very close, much lighter, run cooler and will have much more use for today's hdmi 1.4 components. And much cheaper.

Great.

  • Summary: I was able to fashion a workaround for the fact that this unit does not support 3D passthrough. Beyond that, I am completely satisfied as were the AV guys who helped me with my system. They could not believe the 10.2 setup. It is not a true 10.2 however, because the center left and right channels do not have the same output/volume. It is closer to a 9.2 unless there is a user error on my part and the AV pros.

  • Summary: Great service, great communication. I tried to order this item from 2 other sites and never got an email or a phone call. George called me within a few hours of my order and this item arrived 48 hours later. Can't wait to hook this baby up!

Outstanding Receiver

  • Summary: I have been looking at this receiver for almost a year. My wife surprised me with it for Christmas/Anniversary gift. Well, i have to say it better than I have ever expected. I was able to Bi-amp my speakers now and I have never heard and experienced audio quality like I have now. Not only is the audio quality second to none, the video quality is great. This unit has many features for making home theatre a piece of cake to setup.
