Pioneer VSX-1018AH-K

  • Summary: Does surround sound very well, hdmi connections, blueray, etc. Set up instructions a bit weak, Remote is horrid. Video pass thru is excellent. Not as powerfull as rated althought , 130 Watts per channel . I don't hear that much volume i had a previous pioneer at 110 Watts and it was much more powerfull. Good conectivity and easy setup with mic. calibration. Hard to find but its very good quality. Music is great also. Master HD audio is awsome on blueray !

I would buy this product again

  • Summary: Both the sound and video up-conversion are excellent. I am using this receiver with a 52-in 1080p LCD TV and Polk RM6750 home theater speaker system which is 5.1 only. It still sounds great. Watching a Star Wars movie is just like being in a theater. I was amazed. The initial setup was not exactly straightforward but once past that the automatic calibration with the included microphone worked as advertised.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Good Power, Video up-conversion

  • Summary: I bought this based on two things. I am a long time Pioneer fan and they have me all over again. The other reason was based on the review I found for this unit. Right out of the box it blew the snot out of my old pioneer. The sound is so rich and full. Like others have said this unit will bring new thunder to your speakers and make them scream. The bass is deep and true.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Power

Great HT AVR

  • Summary: I use the AVR to switch my 4 inputs (DirecTV, bluray, HDDVD, Wii) to my ceiling mounted projector as well as power my 5.1 speaker setup. I needed an AVR with HDMI & component switching, plus I wanted to upgrade to the HD codecs. Frankly, I hear very little difference with the HD audio codecs. That is not a reason to upgrade your AVR, IMO. This is obviously no fault of the Pioneer, just a marketing spec that I think is over hyped (again IMO).

  • Summary: Combine this awesome system with the speakers above and you have your self a movie theather! it was very easy to install, very easy to set up and the decoders for hd are just incredible, you must use it as a 7.1 or the hd decoders wont give you true surround! it will blow you socks off! a great feature is in the advance surround option it has a preset named ext-stereo and it gives even sound to all speakers on stereo mode instead of you front satellite only!

Solid receiver

  • Summary: For me the choice came down to this and the Onkyo 606 however for more or less the same features I went with the better brand name. I have the Polk RM85 speakers and polk sub and the pioneer does a great job delivering the sound. Strongly recommend it for the [$] budget.

Great Receiver

Toe-Knee182, J&R
21 September 2008
  • Summary: I upgraded my Yamaha RX-V1500 to this receiver, and it sprung new life into my speakers. I have a 7.1 setup at home and that MDACC was a breeze to calibrate the whole setup. It even protected itself from shorting out because I had some loose wires in the back of my rack that caused it to turn off automatically.

Excellent!

  • Summary: Très bon matériel, facile à installer avec son auto-calibration et calcul de l'acoustique de la pièce. Très puissant (7 x 140 Watts), nombreux choix "son" "ambiance", THX Select II, DTS-HD, Dolby True HD, mixages en 7.1. Même en 5.1, le son est redistribué en 7.1, suivant le réglage. Pioneer a encore fait une excellente machine avec ses entrées/sortie HDMI, 1080p/24Hz.
