Forget HDMI

David Manners "dM", Amazon

  • Summary: The unit I received can't seem to hold on to a HDMI connection or even establish one. According to Pioneer's documentation; HDMI input is not available until you manually configure it but after many attempts I could only manage to watch a few minutes of HD-DVD or a few seconds from my HD cable connection before a complete blackout.

VSX-1015TXK (predecessor) Broke 1 week after 1 year Warranty -$430 wasted!

  • Summary: I bought the near-identical product recently (VSX-1015TXK). Multi-channel (Hi-Fi Audio - my favorite feature) broke 1 week after the 1 year warranty was up - a waste of money/time! Don't buy this product unless you have $400+ to throw out the window!

DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!

Russell, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this receiver for two reasons: it had 3 component inputs and the THX rating. First, I had to purchase a $20 3way component switch becuase the one in this reciever is junk. It has too much loss and my screen goes blank when I use it. Second, I never use the THX becuase it doesnt sound as good as the dolby settings. So basically it sucks and I would give it 0 stars if it were an option. Also, the customer service sucks too.
