Summary: I purchased this receiver as part of a home theater system mainly because of its 7.1 capabilities and auto calibration of the surround speakers. It's a breeze to set up and delivers house shaking base and crystal clear sound. I purchased acoustically matched Infinity speakers for the system.
Summary: I did a lot fo resarch like many others. I originally decided to purchase a Sony 1000ES because Sony has a good, long warranty, but heard of some of its limited inputs, then I found many good reviews on the pioneer. At the end, I decided on this pioneer and so far, I am not disappointed.

Summary: I bought this to replace an Onkyo TX DS797- which was twice the cost of this one. Hooked everything up- used the MCCAC automatic set up with microphone- which worked flawlessly. I was immediately blown away by the far superior sound I was hearing from my same speakers.

This receiver produces clean clear sound like my old techniks did from '75 and it even has a loudness button I thought those were no longer being used, it made my...
Summary: Purchased this reciever as the audio cornerstone to my Home Theatre project. Having not bought a reciever in many years I found myself thrilled by the easy to use features. Once a video output is hooked up to your TV you can easily configure your speaker system with a simple on screen menu.
Would have received 5 stars if not for the lip sync issue

Summary: This receiver is as good as it says in all other reviews. The first thing I would recommend is to use a digital audio connection between your components and your receiver. Although with the analog connections from digital cable and Xbox 360 were sufficient, the digital connections made a world of a...
Summary: I've had the reciever now for 2 weeks. This will be my final choice in a multi-month long search for the perfect reciever in my budget range. With a street/net price of 350-400, you cant find anything else to compare it with.
Summary: I have had this Receiver for a few years. Just went a period of time without using it. When I hooked it up the remote no longer works on it. Searched some forums and found the remote sensor is a piece that breaks and is not replacable at least not without replacing the whole circuit board.
