Summary: AV is performing home theater duties for 5 years now, flawlessly! It effortlessly pushes audio to 1 x Definitive Technology ProCenter 2000 (center channel), 4 x Definitive Technology ProMonitor 1000 Bookshelf Speakers (2 surr and 2 front) and 1 x Definitive Technology ProSub 1000!
Summary: Didn't have any problems until I got the blue ipod/iphone flashing after power on symptom. Called nearest authorized Pioneer/Elite repair shop which is 300mi away. Drove 300mi to authorized Pioneer/Elite repair shop only to be told they don't repair this model. Why?
Summary: ive owned nothing but pioneer elite for over 25 years (im getting old!!!) this is by far the best one yet.audio and video are beyond reference level,its very pretty too!!! absolute 5 star rating.
Summary: waste of money. it is soo expensive, but does not give anything special. You can use the remote if you misplace your dumbbells for a workout. that helps but still feels like a bad decision when I remember buying one of these.
Summary: Literally on month after the warrenty expired the HDCP error showed up and the screen goes black. I called pioneer and did a reset of the system. Two days later the same thing happened. Apparrently this is a common thing on this model after reading some of the forums.
Summary: Great receiver and design but the component they use are not reliable. I got the blue ipod/iphone flashing after power on symptom. Took it to a repair shop and the board cost $400+. Going to try Yamaha.
Summary: After 9 months, this receiver is having problems with the amp board (or something like that). My entire video/sound system is managed by this unit. Suddenly, while watching TV or a movie, the sound would spike to unbearable highs.
