Bad quality, poor support, do not buy.

M. Sidden, Amazon
4 February 2015
  • Summary: Infamous UE22 error after only 2 years of use and Pioneer says it is my problem. Meanwhile, my 15 year Pioneer receiver that this replaced is still working fine in my workshop. I have purchased nothing but Pioneer products for over 25 years, but this is my last one. Do not support this company.

Amazing

db, Amazon
19 July 2014
  • Summary: This receiver is amazing...! I got a chance to test it out at Best Buy and found it on here for almost $150 less then asking price. As of right now I have it powering 2 flooring standing B&W 684's and it sounds great. From the different setting depending on what I am doing, gaming, movie, sports or listening to music. This receiver is plenty powerful with every option that I could want.

UE-22

A. Boudreaux "ab3", Amazon
13 March 2014
  • Summary: Works great until it doesn't - suddenly, for no reason one day, up flashes the UE-22 error... and all is silent. No sound. Supposedly a firmware update error, but the firmware version checks out as up to date and has not been updated recently, so there's nothing you can do... and now you have a brick.

it is a good receiver, loved it and will hold on to it till it gives up on me!!!

Robell, Amazon
26 February 2014
  • Summary: I was very hesitant at first because of the bad reviews ive been seeing here, but then again I was proven wrong it is a very good receiver I use it primarily for movies and music in my bedroom but with the 2nd zone option I get to play both movies and music in my kitchen too. However the only downside to it is its only got 90watts of power but theres always an option for an amplifier which makes up to its lack of power. Kudos to the seller!!!

completely misleading

Joel L Peterson, Amazon
26 December 2013
  • Summary: Had this receiver for about a year- now it shuts of on it's own after 5-10 minutes. No misuse, not overloaded with power- not under warranty because it was bought online. Why does pioneer authorize amazon to sell but then not honor warranty?
