Summary: Got one of these and an sc-55. Around 3 months after 2 yr warranty, I started getting UE22 errors on both at the same time. Vsx started working again the sc didn't. Pioneer said to take it to repair shop and I was quoted 600 to repair the sc55.
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.
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.
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...
it is a good receiver, loved it and will hold on to it till it gives up on me!!!

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.
Summary: Guys, the fix for the audio is included in the latest firmware. Go to Pioneer's website and download the latest firmware. You can see the following fix was applied in version : 1-151-081-111-031 *Fixes audio noise or no sound under certain conditions. To get the firmware, go to: [...
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?
