Would have received 5 stars if not for the lip sync issue
17 July 2006
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 difference. The one knock on this receiver was the fact that for this price range there is no lip sync delay. This is an option that should be on this receiver but it is not.
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: This receiver got so much goodies for incredibly reasonable price. As you know it is the world first receiver to have THX-Select2. It also have the most accurate Automatic MCACC(actually measures and calibrates your audio system for sonic perfection specifically for your living room, regardless of shape or size, automatically.) Hometheater sound is clear and powerfull. Pros: THX-Select2. Auto MCACC. LCD learning remote. stylish.
Summary: Genau das Richtige für audiophile Freaks, das erste Modell mit THX Select2. Diese Zertifizierung attestiert dem Gerät eine überragende Tonqualität. Die automatische Raumeinmessung MCACC von Pioneer bietet die perfekte Tonabstimmung auf jeden Wohnraum. Der Receiver unterstützt alle älteren Surround-Formate, einschließlich WMA9 Pro und 7 x 150 Watt.
