Outstanding in Most Respects, With a Few Annoyances
25 March 2011
Summary: Bought this receiver about 1 1/2 years ago, use it regularly for music CDs and home theater. I researched and bought this unit with modest needs in mind. It has several features that I'll probably never use (like satellite zones and Sirius), but experience tells me to it's usually better to have too many features than too few (within reason).
It has been a total "DISASTER" and a "HUGE HEADACHE"

Summary: I believed I was making a good deal in purchasing this Pioneer VSX-1019AH 7.1 Receiver thru E-Bay and ibuyplasma (seller)..Turns out that the receiver worked about two (2) to three (3) minutes and "QUIT"!!! No Power at all!!! ibuyplasma has been extremely devious in answering with a true, honest and/or a straight solution to a product that they sold and I promptly paid. I'm not at all disputing payment.
Summary: I use this for a large living room entertainment center. The sound is powerful and has great detail. It works great for DVD's, next-gen video game systems, and showcases Blu-ray's very well. This is HD audio and video's best friend.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality
