Summary: This is by far the worst receiver I have ever owned. How can a presumably good brand and at this price point produce something so bad ? I had mine serviced (a major hassle) twice while under warranty and after having the chips replaced, the problems are still there. So it must just be a bad design.
Summary: Had this receiver for over a year and a half now. Love the automatic setup, the customization of inputs, and the ability to bi-amp the front speakers. It delivers great surround (speakers help too). Definitely recommend this product.
Summary: I've had this receiver for a few years, and realize that there is a newer model with 3D now in the market. I'm guessing that the changes on the new model are incremental. Pros * THX means something, the sound quality is excellent at all volumes.
Summary: I have owned this receiver for over 18 months. It powers my 6 speaker JBL home theater room with excellent clarity and power. I have previously owned receivers by Onkyo, Kenwood, Denon, Mitsubishi and as a kid - Realistic.
Summary: * Came in brand new condition * Very easy setup * FANTASTIC sound quality * Remote works even when pointing away from receiver My setup: 1080p Projector, 100 inch diagonal screen, Monster THX certified wire, Polk audio speakers
Summary: Amazon knows that Pioneer will not honor the warranty for any Elite product sold online, yet they persist in allowing these listings. I'm currently involved in a nightmare scenario trying to get my Vsx 21 Elite repaired. Do not, repeat, do not purchase any Elite product from any online vendor.
Summary: The Pioneer VSX-21txh is a great receiver with more features than most people will ever need and if you get it at a good price all the more so. It puts out plenty of power 110watts RMS per each of its 7 channels.
