Buyer beware...

B. Ross, Amazon
3 June 2014
  • Summary: Like many of the other reviews on this product... the receiver worked great for 18 months, then boom... no good. Pioneer released a firmware update that could not be performed via the internet update. I followed their instructions exactly as they prescribed... downloaded the firmware update files and copied them to a reformatted USB drive. The firmware update started fine, but after about 2 minutes it displayed "Update Error 6".

Don't do Pioneer!!

M. Bulkeley, Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: This is the only reason I need to never buy another Pioneer product again. While it mostly worked for about 18 months (always had problems with HDMI synchronization which resulted in intermittent green lines flashing on the screen), it just doesn't work anymore. Pioneer support is non-existent. "Self-support" through the internet doesn't work because nobody else can figure this out. Device is no longer connecting to network and their is nothing to be done.

Very Poor Warranty support

C. Longino, Amazon
28 December 2013
  • Summary: I owned this receiver for almost a year and then the HDMI output board quit working. It was still under warranty when it happened so I thought it shouldn't be a big deal. Well I was wrong. I live in the front range of Colorado and the closest service center is a 1.5 hour round trip and is a small hole in the wall shop in a small town, there is no one located in Denver at all.

Nice Sounding Receiver for the Money...Failed February 2014

R. A. Fellows, Amazon
19 June 2013
  • Summary: Damn thing will pass TV audio and video & audio from DVD player, but not TV video. Bypassed the AVR and plugged the HDMI directly into the cable box and now I have audio & video in my TV, so all the parts work, except for the receiver. Passed the amazon return date, so now I may have to take it to a shop....damn. July 24, 2013 update: I unplugged the unit for 24 hrs, then updated the firmware via a USB stick. It's been working fine now for a month.

Schlechtes HDMI-Signal

PeGo, Amazon
27 February 2014
  • Summary: Beim Anschluss einer XBOX gab es kein, bzw. ein fehlerhaftes Signal. Support hatte die Idee, sämtliche Kabel zu tauschen und die XBOX auf Werkseinstellungen zu setzen (toll!). Gerät wurde zurück geschickt. Ein Denon AVR 2317 als Alternaive beschaff und damit läft die XBOX an den "alten" Kabeln...

  • Excerpt: Купил данный девайс и сразу воникли проблемы-с пульта и с кнопок на аппарате было невозможно чтото настроить, тк глючило всё что можно. в сервисцентре по телефону не помогли. сменил прошивку-потихоньку заработало. не покупайте пионер! фуфло.
  • Pros: дешовый
  • Cons: убогий пульт, убогое меню настройки (хуже только китайские яблофоны)

Riesen Enttäuschung!

Monty, Amazon
29 December 2012
  • Summary: Es sollte ein neuer Receiver her. Anforderung: - alles nur noch über HDMI - Internet-Radio - Airplay - Schraubanschlüsse - Guter Sound - Gutes Bild Sound: Nachdem alles verkabelt war, wurde die automatische Lautsprecherjustierung mittels mitgelieferten Mikrofon durchgeführr. Dauerrte sehr lange und das Klangbild war einfach nur schlecht. Mein alter Denon Receiver hatte ohne Justierung ein besseres Klangbild. Auch nach manueller Anpassung wurde es nur leicht besser.
