Summary: I upgraded and boy do i love it,great (HD)picture,lots of audio/video settings,a total package. lots of hook ups on the back,I think this product is top of the line(one of the best). Pioneer has been around for a long time.
Summary: This is an excellent 6.1 reciever. Ok so I have heard a ton about whats new and the latest but the truth is this reciever had enough features and power to rock the family room. With how advanced TV's r today you don't need your reciever to play the part of video switcher. I have a Sanyo TV with 3 HDMI channels going into it ... I use a digital co-ax to the Pioneer and it works like a champ. Switch the channel on the TV and you get the digital audio to the reciever.
Summary: WHEN A REVIEW IS WRITTEN, IT SHOULD NOT BE ABOUT A TRANSACTION AS ABOVE This is a solidly good reciever. It will give good sound to a group of 5.1 satellites and a sub. I would call the sound nuetral and uncolored but slightly brite but not unduly so. There is good punch to the bass. It will play music from cds and such good. Do not expect the sound to be as that of a Pioneer Elite series though. I did not test it in 7.1 mode.
Summary: This product has to be one of the better audio components I've purchased. Over the years, I've purchased a number of receivers and amplifiers. This has to be the most functional and intuitive to configure and operate. I have a Sony receiver that I've had for years and I still don't have what I consider to be good control over its settings. This one was so intuitive, I didn't need to read the directions to set it up and use it. I did read them, and guess what they said?
Summary: Price was low enought that with an added extended warranty, price was about the same as brand new. So far, haven't had any problems. Several different types of audio equipment connected and it all sounds great.
