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: 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: 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: The VSX-1015TXK is an excellent home theater receiver. Automatic speaker calibration makes set up easy. Lots of power for detailed, clean sound at THX Select 2 certified levels. 3 component video inputs and video upconversion to component video makes switching between multiple sources seamless. Well worth the purchase.
Summary: This reciever is amazing. It does almost everything the Pioneer Elite recievers do. If you dont have a palace of a room you dont need the THX ultra certification that the Elite recievers have. The THX select2 certification is made for mid sized to small theaters wich in most peoples cases is a large room in their house. Before this reciever I had a Kenwood Vr-309, right away my new pioneer blew me away. The speaker calibration was great.
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. The many options offered by the selectible surround modes make it very easy to taylor the sound to fit the music source, whether it's a move, music DVD or CD.
