completely misleading

Joel L Peterson, Amazon

  • 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?

Love this receiver

John Berenyi, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this receiver for about $450 brand new in the box. I had a pro hook it up to our house system and set it up for two zone application. I love this feature! I can watch TV in one room and the kids can listen to something else in their rooms with a volume control on the wall.

UE-22

A. Boudreaux, Amazon
10 May 2013
  • 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...
