Summary: I bought what I thought was a good receiver, well at just past the 3 year mark, the power supply makes the receiver constantly turn on and off, rendering it useless. After speaking with Pioneer several times, since it's no longer warranted, they sent me to a local repair shop.
Summary: I bought a Pioneer VSX-32 on Aug 8 2010. This was not my first Pioneer, My VSX-9500 gave me over 15 years of excellent service. The 32 sounded great and had nice features for about two years. At two years and two months the HDMI circuitry went out, no output video, two months out of warranty.
Summary: is hard to configure, but once configured...just enjoy because this A/V Receiver, blow you head...awesome sound and everything. this is not appropriate for rookies or beginners in receivers, the model is for amateurs for quality sound.
perfect mixture of old tech, new tech and price that fits my budget

Summary: This is an awesome receiver, and a nice upgrade from my Yamaha 6160. This is a perfect fit for my home theater with its 3D pass through and return audio. The now hard to find under 1k option of preouts is also present and something I took for granted with my Yamaha.
Summary: I researched a number of different receivers before deciding on this one. Overall it provides good power to my Martin logan preface speakers, however there is an extremely long delay when switching between inputs.
Summary: I really researched and struggled over this purchase. I wanted to upgrade my entire home theater but I did not have unlimited money! I started with replacing my old Onkyo receiver. I liked it and thought it had great sound but it was lacking HDMI inputs and outputs.
Summary: I recently posted a review of the VSX 21 TXH, but think some of the comments may be relevant since the feature changes are minor from year to year. Hope this helps Pioneer Elite VSX-21TXH - AV receiver - 7.1 channel
Summary: High quality Pioneer receiver that delivers crisp, full sound. Very customizable with many features and ability to expand its functions for multi-room use and 7.1 sound. It fits right in with my home theater decor. Only drawback is that it needs the original touchscreen remote to fully setup.
Summary: I replaced an extremely disappointing and defective Onkyo TX-SR707 receiver with this Pioneer. What a difference! This receiver is easy to set up, has great connectivity and features, and has proven to be extremely robust and reliable.
