Summary: I bought this Pioneer receiver three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive receiver. It has a loudness control button, basic home theatre setup. The output is perfect for carrying the sound around a large house and the remote has a pretty good control functions. My only complaint is that the top cover has some big dents and they didn't get mention in the ad.
Summary: Pioneer has led the industry in adding affordable features to both their entry level and high end audio home theater equipment and this is just that. In the 200.00 + - dollar retail price range this is a full featured piece of gear with Pioneer sound that is known for little or no coloring in their audio reproduction A+ for the money!
Pioneer receivers last very long time. Great value!

Summary: This is my third Pioneer receiver in 15 years. I love them so much because they last a very long time. This particular receiver has 6.1 channel surround that really sounds realistic, a reasonable number of connections and is fairly simple to use. Highly recommended.
Summary: I bought the receiver because of the price. I like that it is not all that complicated to use, but it does seem to overheat very easy. I don't crank it up all the way, maybe half way and it will only hold it for about 5 minutes. I wouldn't recommend this receiver.
Summary: I got this for my husband for Christmas. I thought that because it was a Pioneer that it was going to be great. Boy was I wrong! My husband hooked it up on Christmas day to replace our old existing receiver and it didn't work. Needless to say we hooked our old one back up and I'm sending this one back for a refund.
