Summary: I bought this as a second receiver for the bed room (I have a Harman Kardon in the living room) and i have to say this is an excellent receiver. It's heavy, and the auto calibration is really nice (better than Ez of Harman Kardon). This is among the top lines of Pioneer. However, the design of it is not as sleek as Harman Kardon, and the OSD is worse than Harman Kardon.
Summary: This unit is ideal for home theater use,this is my third pioneer home theater system and by far the best,this unit offers everything a home owner needs for a complete entertainment system. Great sound and easy to setup.
