Worked great until it died

David W., Newegg
27 December 2015
  • Pros: Ethernet aware Controllable from my Android smartphone
  • Cons: Only lasted 3 years until it gave some undecipherable error code, so threw it out. After decades of preferring Pioneer, I'll probably pass on Pioneer products from now on.

Another Dead Pioneer Receiver

Tim E., Newegg
10 December 2014
  • Pros: Nice features, attractive unit.
  • 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 ...

broken after warranty

XUN Z., Newegg
10 July 2014
  • Pros: good looking and great sound
  • 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.

Broke after 18 months

TERRY P., Newegg
29 July 2013
  • Pros: This was a great receiver while it lasted.
  • 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

Crap

robert olivarez, Amazon
12 January 2013
  • 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.
