Cons: Very poor quality. This unit died on me. The dreaded MCACC blinking light. I think this unit is plagued with this issue but of course.. Pioneer knows nothing about it. Maybe if they just did a web search they'd find hundreds of posting dealing with the issue on this receiver. If it were a car it ...
Cons: broken just after warranty. there is a FL OFF blink. Turn off 5 seconds later after I turn it on. Some online post says it was caused by amp transistor, however mine didn't. same error even after I disconnected amp board.
Cons: The processor went bad 6 months after the warranty ended. It will output sub-woofer sound thru the pre-out and it will output the sound for the calibration but it will not output any other sound from any kind of source input. Too bad because I used to like pioneer
Summary: I purchased this unit on 01/12/12 and didn't get around to setting it up with all the surround sound and new sharp tv till March. The unit worked great till late December when the amp blew. Lucky for me it was still under warranty by three weeks.
Stay Away - Works great when it works but that is rarely

Summary: Went threw two of these within several months, awesome when it worked but consistently got an error code that would not clear and while Amazon was very helpful with the first return, only getting 80 percent back for 2nd dud unit.
