Pioneer Elite VSX-50 7.1-Channel 3-D Ready A/V Receiver

Carlton N. Mckenney Jr. "carlton", Amazon
11 September 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver based partly on the longer warranty period and partly on the Pioneer reputation. As far as I am concerned it fails both tests. At 2years + 2 months the HDMI board died. Pioneer support, in polite terms, told me to FO. I paid the investigation fee to the local service center and the replacement cost for the board, without labor, is more than the MSRP.

Do NOT Buy Pioneer Receivers Online - There is NO Warranty!!!!!

Lisa M Panzero, Amazon
11 February 2013
  • Summary: Beware! This is Pioneers policy and applies to all receivers purchased online. They do not honor any service warranty. I have had 2 warranty related problems. They finally sucked it up and granted me a one time exclusion so I didn't get charged for the repair. However, I did have to pay $90 shipping to send it from Tucson to Phoenix. It's 3 months later and I have the same problem - no sound coming from the receiver.

Pioneer receiver

Virgil, Amazon
13 March 2012
  • Summary: This Pioneer vsx50 receiver is awesome !! It has many, many adjustments and settings, so if you can't understand the technical lingo in the manual, you had better hire the "GEEK SQUAD" or someone capable of setting you up. It's definitely worth it. Saved $125.00 over Best Buy. Thanks Amazon !!

Glass half full

Screwed by IRIS, Amazon
3 January 2012
  • Summary: I can't imagine in this era that anyone would make a receiver that doesn't have wifi on board. In addition it will not connect to my new Samsung DVD player more than about 20 percent of the time. It has to be shut down and then be re-started to get a good audio connection. I spoke with support who blamed it on other things and acted like I was stupid with a condescending voice inflection. I tried to hook it up to my Air Port Extreme but it won't work.

Pioneer is my brand for life

Beitie "Beitie", Amazon
1 January 2012
  • Summary: After trying 2 other brand name receivers, I finally went back to Pioneer, and I'm very glad I did! To be honest, this is my first venture into the the AV surround sound Home Theater style of receivers, even though that's kind of what I used my old SX-828 for for a long time anyway. I do have to admit that it took me a few days to get the sound set up the way I wanted, and I did have to play around with it quite a bit.
