  • Summary: I've had this receiver for about a year now and it has delievered in spades! I have an Elite TV from 2005 so appearance wise it is a glorious match! I have my DirecTV dvr hooked up to it and it delivers great visual and audio signal, I also have a DVD player and internet connected as well, I've not...

badly written software and grossly under powered

  • Summary: I bought this unit to be able to switch between multiple HDMI inputs more than my TV has available and that part of the unit works well - but the remote control, and set up, and multiple layers of stuff to wade through to chnage minor settings was too too much for me - I took this unit back and...

PIONEER ELITE VSX-31

17 July 2011
  • Summary: NICE RECEIVER. I INITIALLY BOUGHT THE VSX-30 AT BEST BUY FOR ALMOST $600. IT IS A NICE RECEIVER BUT IS LIMITED IN ITS MULTIZONE CAPABILITIES. FOR EXAMPLE, YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD OR INTERNET RADIO TO ZONE 2.

Good for simple things, troublesome otherwise

  • Summary: In short, works great if all you need is to hook up few A/V devices via HDMI. However, I hit limitations very fast. Two things that I simply can't get to work: 1) If TV is off when receiver is turned on, there is no sound output to speakers. Why would somebody have TV off?

  • Summary: Incredibly highly functional receiver for a great price. I originally was looking at the VSX-30 but then after I learned you can play iPod to Zone 2 I went with this one. A couple of words of caution, which is why this receiver gets four instead of five stars: - I upgraded my existing receiver...

Best AV reciever I have ever used!

Garrett C, Amazon
3 January 2011
  • Summary: This reciever is by far the best reciever I have ever purchased. The video upscaling is absolutely phenomenal, this reciever is hooked up to a samsung LED 42 inch 6000 series tv. As most of you know the picture on a LED screen is already great, but when playing my blue ray player running through the...

Pioneer Ellite VSX-31

Andrew y, Amazon
21 November 2010
  • Summary: Amazing!!!!!!!!! I had a very high end Yamaha receiver that was about six years old that I was replacing. I had paid over $1,500.00 for the Yamaha. I was reluctant to purchase the VSX-31 as I only paid about $450.00 on it on sale.
