Summary: This review is for the VSX 32 which is the little brother of the 33. I felt it was time to upgrade my system from the aging VSX 81TXi. The 81 was a great buy back in 2006, but since then new surround codecs and the need for more HDMI inputs were needed.
Summary: I'm a big fan of Pioneer AV equipment, I'm an installer as well and I use Pioneer a lot. In the recent years there's a huge urge to develop hardware that will be network friendly and also will have a mobile app, but unfortunately Pioneer were very sloppy recently.
Summary: Very happy with the receiver. Setup was very simple and handles a variety of input devices (BluRay, etc.). Setup of Speakers and balancing them was very easy as well. Price might be a bit high, but overall, an excellent receiver!
Summary: I am not an Audiophile, but this unit with the Mirage Nanosat speakers has a great sound with rich features. I love the multiple Zones and the Smartphone app that allows you to control most features of the receiver remotely.
Summary: I picked this model for the price/quality/namebrand/previous experience. The VSX-33 features fantastic sound and build quality, lots of configurable and setup/hookup options. First rate product for the price, very satisfied - used almost exlusively for home theatre with PV-1 sub and Paradigm...
Summary: This is a great unit. You'll probably have trouble finding them now, as they're old-hat. The unit does everything I need it to do, and is a powerful centerpiece to a pretty respectable home theater arrangement.
Pros: My unit was a demo, and was missing the remote (thus the low price)
Cons: My unit was a demo, and was missing the remote (thus the low price)
Summary: I purchased this to replace another Pioneer Receiver I had mainly for the 3D capability. However, I was VERY DISAPPOINTED with this av RECEIVER! After attaching all of my devices and speakers I calibrated it and put in a 3D Blu Ray movie to watch.
Summary: I spent the last two days setting this receiver up. I upgraded from an older Pioneeer. Watched several scenes from INCEPTION on Blu Ray, and listened to several SACDs with my OPPO, then listened to some music put on to the hard drive of my BRENNAN JB7.
