Summary: I was really excited when i first got this receiver, easy to set up, seemed to work fine but the honeymoon ended soon after. My receiver had stopped working a number of times, the power button will flash indicating it must be serviced.
Summary: My Pioneer Elite SC-37 completely died and only shines the blinking blue light of death after only 4 years. The technician said that it could possibly be fixed, but buying a new receiver would be much cheaper. This is my second Pioneer Elite receiver that died.

Summary: I have owned one of these for a couple of years now. I was new to all the terminology, so I was fooled by the marketing on the box. The box says DLNA certified, but there is no App or other way to use that feature. The remote is incredibly complicated and I find it difficult to use.
Summary: Yep ... I bought this at Crawford's Superstore, only to find out 23 months later that's it's not covered by anyone's warranty. First guess repair is $600 for the amp. While kicking myself for being taken, I take some comfort in knowing I will never buy anything else from that vendor, and Pioneer...
Summary: It is now 1 year and 5 months since I purchased the Pioneer SC-37 and the unit has stopped working. Upon calling Pioneer, I was told that since the unit was purchased online, and not in an "authorized" store, there is no warranty.
Worked Fine for 15 months, then ICE amp failed and Pioneer Refused to Honor 2 year Warrantee; Big Value is unresponsive
29 November 2012
Summary: So I was happy with the unit while it worked. Before purchasing it from Big Value, I carefully read its statement "Big Value Inc prides itself in selling all Brand New, USA merchandise with Full USA Manufacturer Warranty". Don't believe it. Unit has now failed and will cost ~$350 to fix.
Summary: Unit went out after 1 year of service. Repair cost estimated at 670 dollars. Pioneer refused to cover it because it was purchased on Amazon. These receivers seem like dinosaurs in this age of miniaturization. Learned a hard lesson, but will not buy another Pioneer product ever again!
Summary: Just bought this receiver(SC 37-Year 2011) to replace my previous Elite VSX 72(Year 2004). Have to say I am very pleased with pick up in audio detail and punch. Both are great receivers but the SC 37 sounds cleaner and crisper.
