Summary: its a good system i dont have the surround sound setup mic or the center speaker and the powered subwoofer yet but that will come the thing i dont like is there is no seperate base and treble and i dont care for the simulated equilizer i liked my Fisher StudioStandard surround sound A/V amp and Fisher Studio Standard receiver w/5 band equilizer i feel that it put out a better quality sound with the 120watts per channel 4 main 120 watt fisher studio standard floor...
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. Had my last receiver (A Sony) for about 10 years through a few different moves and it never stopped working. Wish I hadn't given it to a friend when I got this "Upgrade.
Summary: This is a very nice unit. I run a pair of Polk Audio Studio Monitors and a pair of Advents off of this unit for Television, CD, VHS, DVD, DVD-R, Du al Cassette deck and a linear turntable and it does an excellent job. Would like to see more HDMI connections; but, HDMI wasn't as prevalent as it is now.
Summary: This receiver is an amazing value. I was using a Sony Str-de575 5.1 channel receiver before and thaught I liked sony until I got this. 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 front JBL E80's soud terriffic i hardly even have my sub on anymore!!
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. It's setup in simple, the auto MDACC for seting up surround speakers is easy, and learning its features and settings has not been hard to figure out.
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. This unit easily allows for individual speaker adjustments from volume to frequency range. The unit provides audio feedback for every adjustment made.
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. The sound was crystal clear- for music and movies. The dolby pro logic 11x sound fields made everything sound as if it were a "dolby digitial movie". The sound was great even at lower levels.
Summary: This receiver is an excellent product; Pioneer really got most things right with this one. After having several problems with Sony Receivers I decided to go against my loyalties and look at other manufactures. I trusted the Amazon.com reviews, and the resulting rankings - and I was not disappointed. The other reviews are spot on, and the Pioneer VSX-1015TXK is an excellent receiver; easy setup, good manual, excellent features, well designed and made product.
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. Though THX is hardly the final word, it does give credit to processing power and quality. The digital and THX surround modes are stunning and fairly well disected.
Summary: I replaced a new JVC RX-8040 with this unit. This Pioneer model is fantastic! It took about 90 minutes to set-up with a set of JBL SCS300.7 speakers. Sound quality at low, mid, and high volume is excellent. A/V switching works perfectly. The "AVD SUR" button that toggles through a variety of different sound distributions is exciting. I used the THX button while watching Saving Private Ryan and I thought the tank was coming through my house.
