Summary: I have had mine for about a year. I had to go on assignment which caused me to pack up the system in storage. For about six months, I never felt that I got a bad deal when I bought this system.
Summary: This in rebuttal to the 2 star review that said online sales of pioneer equipment has no warranty if he did a little research on the Pioneer site he would have seen the Amazon along with many other online retailers are authorize sellers.
Summary: Unbeleivable! The SC 57 is fantastic.Tremendous power, excellent features, simply a joy every time I power it up. Airplay & icontrol app are really cool. The D3 amps sound great! Have owned Pioneer in the past & was looking @ Denon 4311c & Marantz AV 7005.
Summary: This unit is replacing my old Sony STR-DA5300ES which did not have 3D pass-thru. Very inpressive sound and options, bye bye Sony, who no longer sell ES products direct to the end user.I have B&W Nautilus 804 speakers with HTM-1 center speaker and wanted a receiver that would do them justice.
Summary: Hi,, I've been using the Denon 3808CI with 4 x B&W 805i and CDM-C for a few years,, with the upgrade to Pioneer SC-57, the sound quality improved significantly... just right after the receiver swap !
Summary: The good: This is the best sounding receiver I have ever owned or experienced. It is a technological powerhouse with every known bell and whistle and then some. The self-calibration offered is very comprehensive contributing to the receivers exceptional musical sound. The bad: 1.
Who cares about features on PAPER - This is a performance powerhouse!

Summary: There are a few people that are skeptical about the new SC-55/SC-57 because they are no longer using the B&O ICE amp. Well, I can tell you, that's a GOOD THING. These amps are the best sounding Pioneer to day. Compared to an SC-37 there is a noticeable difference.
