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.
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: this unit has all the features that any one could need.the auto surround balance feature worked very well,i personally did not feel any need to tweak it.The sound decoding options cover all formats currantly available with with or without THX to suit all taste.and the 7 channel stereo is great.Ample...
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: 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...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: For the money, there is no comparable receiver. I've been an audiophile for some 20+ years and this is one of the best values I've ever seen. I have a relatively complex HDTV system and this receiver works perfectly. Some of the highlights: - Switches 3 component video inputs.
