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: 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.
Summary: Ho comprato il SIntonizzatore Pioneer 7.1 per sostituire il precedente Onkyo TS575 5.1. Splendido per il fronte sonoro che produce, è esente da distorsioni, facile da utilizzare e completo nelle connettività. Ottimo il prezzo di acquisto relativo alle performance. L'unica pecca, l'impossibilità di gestire l'HDMI.
Summary: I've listened to and purchased a lot of sound equipment in my day and this is an exceptional receiver. You can pick one up for under $400 and you cannot beet the quality in that price range. All multichannel amps are driven by computers and their software which will become outdated quickly. DO NOT spend a fortune of any reciever. It will become outdated long before it wares out, and it will fetch very litte on the used market. That's why this amp is perfect.
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 power to drive my difinitive tech.
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: 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 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: 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.
