Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Setup, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I bought one of these (VSX-03TXH) in August 2008. In June 2009, it failed. (Unit "shuts down" - possibly due to some faulty power or temp sensor.) I took it to an authorized repair place, and it took them FOREVER (10-12 weeks) to repair the unit.
Summary: My father tasked me with specing out his home entertainment system. I just got back from installing this receiver with the following components: Samsung 67" DLP TV PlayStation 3 (BluRay player) Wii DirecTV HD-DVR SVS subwoofer/speakers (5.1) This receiver (purchased new from Amazon) First of all...
Summary: I have owned 15 Pioneer auto and home products since the early 80's. Not one of them has ever disappointed in quality, longevity or function. Excluding longevity (to new), the VSX-03TXH receiver would appear to be no exception.
Summary: The 03 Elite packs a punch. Tried the Onkyo 607,Denon and even the new Pioneer non-elite's. None of them sounded as full as this elite. The power rating appears to be accurate as many are not. This receiver brought my speakers to life. Very pleased.
Summary: i just received the vsx-03thx and let me tell you....i dont know how to mess with the settings to much but i let my brother do that....but it sounds amazing i had a yamaha receiver before and i get extremely good sounds out of this.....bottom line, definitely your bang for the buck
Summary: This receiver is absolutely wonderful. I am a bit of an audiophile and I needed a 2nd receiver for a new setup. I compared this side by side with a few offerings from Denon, Marantz, Onkyo, and Yamaha. While all sounded quite good, the pioneer matched best with my NHT speakers.
Summary: First off the good, great sound, conections and set up was a snap, owners manual was a little daunting at first but after reading 2 or 3 times it all made sense, preset surround modes sound great, My Klipsch RF-7's came alive. big improvement over my old Yamaha HTR-5460 (big disapointment).
