Summary: I purchased this item back on February 3 of this year serviced through Warehouse Deals Inc. Here it is 5/25, 4 1/2 months later, the TV audio doesn't pass through the device when in standby or play through the speakers when the SC-1223 is turned on. I have swapped out HDMI and still doesn't work.
Summary: Had to buy a new receiver as my LG Plasma had an annoying disconnect between voice and picture and my VSX-1015TX didn't have a correction. This unit has a class D3 amp which is much cooler running than the 1015 so I was able to eliminate most of my cabinet fans.
... is impressive and I believe to have been a good buy at $499

Summary: This is impressive and I believe to have been a good buy at $499. It being a FORMIDABLE task, I haven't replaced one of my Sony STR 33 ES units with this yet so I can't give an assessment of this at this point. If possible I will update after running it for awhile.
Summary: "Perfection" I own three other older models from Pioneer. It's hard to beat the sound quality of Pioneer. Never had a problem over the pass 20yrs of ownership! Can't wait for the DTS-X Models to come!
Summary: Best-priced receiver by a long shot than can power my 4-ohm speakers, especially since I got it on sale. Thought I was going to have to buy separates. Light for its size, doesn't get too hot, and runs my four 4-ohm speakers with no problems. I love it. Works great with my Logitech Harmony One.
Solid receiver. Supports many formats. Setup app needs some work.

Summary: The setup app via iPad was pretty handy, if a bit annoying. It walks you through all the connections, wiring, and speaker tuning. Unfortunately, if you add a device, you have to go through it all over again; you can't just fire it up and change a device name or connection. The unit itself is great.
Summary: we love this receiver it does more than you could ever expect and does it well the power is awesome download the instruction manual add an ethernet cable and away you go easy to set up and use the sound is great just a super nice receiver
Summary: I am not sure if I just got a defective unit or what, but this thing didn't work very well at all. First thing I noticed was when I hooked up a turntable into the analog input the volume could not be adjusted and the only sound was what the pre-amp in the turntable produced and this was only coming...
Summary: Should have done my homework - the same product is cheaper here in Singapore and I wouldn't need to buy a 110-220 voltage transformer. Other than that, the AV receiver looks good, sounds good and provides a good number of options to set up and configure.
