Not good

Amazon
27 October 2013
  • Summary: Just purchased this receiver. Not good at all. Read reviews and most were positive so decided to get it on a huge discount. More than what I needed for now. Hdmi issues out of the box! Spent almost three hours to configure and get hdmi right! You need to take time to configure, understand that. No output and also having issues with standby mode and throughputs for hdmi pass through. Just a bad unit. Returning tomorrow. Too many issues to keep.

"WARNING ON PIONEER"

Keith J Breaux, Amazon

  • Summary: Never make the mistake of buying the SC57 or other of the newer Pioneer AV receivers. You may get lucky and while it operates may be pleased, BUT Pioneer has issues with its HDMI boards and they do not back their products. Mine operated fine for 7 months, then boom it goes out. NO POWER SURGES, clear blue sky outside. Brought it to authorized repair and Pioneer basically held this guys feet over the fire to say it was severe lightning strike.
