Summary: I purchased this receiver to replace Marantz SR-7002 in my home theater system. The receiver as description by seller. This is very nice receiver with smart software and strong with ICE power technology. The cinema effect is very dynamic and quite good in music stereo performance. I was satisfied with this equipment.
Summary: Had onkyo 605 for a while and this was a very nice upgrade. Compared it with denon and marantz side by side and pioneer was a clear winner from the looks stand point and amp power. Unless you are going to spend 3k on a receiver with toroidal power supply i think ICE power in pioneer is the clear winner.
Summary: This review is about Pioneer SC-LX85 AV Receiver which I got yesterday until yesterday I was a big fan of Yamaha receivers the 1st.one was 630 after that 1200 later 1400 & lastly 1800 which was very good but 7.1 & I wanted 9.2 so I was very keen on buying Yamaha 3010 or 2010. I tried contacting many dealers but no one was giving proper delivery schedule so I contacted the main distributor at Mumbai & was given a very rude reply WE DO NOT ENCOURAGE DIRECT CUSTOMERS, I was...
Summary: I have been a pioneer fan for 35 years this receive is as good as any that I have owned and better , I love this receiver , The Ipod hookup is great , and the 140 watts sound real clean . I am very happy with this buy .
Summary: could not be more happy with this av reciever i have a 5.1 surround set up so i bi amped my front paradigm tower speakers and they sound unbelievable. the sound watching movies is beyond excellent , the sound is accurate and sounds better then at a theatre the seperation is superb, music sound excellent as well at $ 850.00 this was a great great buy
Summary: This receiver is the best thing going for its street prices. I have owned Denon , B&K ,Onkyo and Harmon Kardon receivers over the past 10 years and none of them had the soundstaging ability that the sc 35 has especially in width. Love the assignable inputs and the auto set up is more accurate than on any of these other receivers. The SC 35 is not only the best sounding and punchy of the bunch , but also the best looking IMO.
SC-35 - Nice Receiver but - Double Check the Specs!

Summary: The SC-35 A\V receiver from Pioneer's Elite line is a 2010 model. My unit is stamped Sept 2010 as date of manufacture. Since purchasing it on 2-Sept-2011 I've had four days to familiarize myself with many features, interfaces, and capabilities such as audio, video and interconnects. Other reviews cover these items thoroughly. My reason for writing is to alert buyers to beware of Pioneer's website, where the specifications for this receiver are shown.
Summary: For starters, if you are undecided on what to get, this item is deeply discounted because it is last year's model and who knows how many more are available. The Pioneer website shows only the current year models but really not much different from this one. Fine, all that really matters in the end is that it works the job it is supposed to do. This is my first adventure into surround sound. Previously I used a stereo receiver with 4 speakers.
