Avoid this, many others to choose from

Dano, Amazon
10 March 2014
  • 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. Most annoying thing was after having to dismantle everything taking to the the repair shop, and their initial check showed the same thing, It was a week or so before the repairman could look at it, he calls back and says there was nothing...

Pioneer Quality Sucks

JAMES K ROURKE JR, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • 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. The SC-37 was a replacement from Pioneer for my earlier top-of-the-line Elite SC-7 receiver that died after only one year. The authorized repair shop could not determine the problem after keeping it for 4 months.

Waste of money

AJ Cinci OH, Amazon
1 September 2013
  • 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. But the last straw for me was when I found out that all the sound signal is not amplified.

I Got Screwed Too

Hiker Dude, Amazon
5 February 2013
  • 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 won't be selling me anything else from anywhere. If it was possible to select zero stars, that would have been my choice.

Never Again Pioneer

Robert S. Ireland or Michelle Kind, Amazon
6 December 2012
  • 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. This is unbelievably bad customer service; particularly for a $1,300 purchase that breaks after less than 18 months' service. I rate this product, and more particularly Pioneer electronics, Zero Stars.

Good reciever bad customer service

Mike, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: Good: The good news is that the reciever does its job wonderfully when working... Bad: The blue blinking light of death. I purchased this reciever July 7,2011 from Big Value INC after my onkyo srtx876 hdmi board went out and they wanted way too much to fix it (one month out of warranty). For the past year it has been great then I got the blue light of death. I went to Pioneers website and looked for authorized repair shops since it has a "2 year warranty".

Worked Fine for 15 months, then ICE amp failed and Pioneer Refused to Honor 2 year Warrantee; Big Value is unresponsive

Doug, Amazon
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. Although it is within the 2 year stated warrantee period, the manufacturer is refusing to honor the warranty.

Beware! Horrible customer service

Mark W. Conley, Amazon
13 September 2012
  • 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!
