Summary: I am writing this review probably 3 years after my purchase of this receiver. I still can't believe the amazing product that I received for the price. I have all 5.1 channels connected and it sounds amazing. I haven't even used all of the connections that are available on it.
Summary: I bought this receiver used about a year ago as a replacement to an early 90's Sony receiver when the controller on it fried after many years of diligent service. My setup at the time was a 4 channel with no subwoofer, and that's all I was looking to power.
Highly recemended! this was the cheapest, most powerful Reciver!

Summary: For the price I think I made out on this one. I had just spent most of my budget on the 61" TV I had been drooling over for months but instead of taking a breath after I found the cheapest price for the TV I wanted. I just ordered it.
Summary: I purchased it for a gift for a coworker. He loves it and is his first real stero reciever. I paired it with a great set of advent speakers and a dual turntable for his records. He is a happy camper.
Summary: I guess it's a pretty nice tuner/amp for the money, but it is not very intuitive to use. Drilling down through several layers of menus just to do simple functions is a bore and requires me to keep the owners manual at my fingertips at all times.
Summary: I was a optimus man with all optimus components. When it was time to replace, I tried the pioneer. I knew of its great reputation, but have to admit I have been blown away by its capabilities and sleek design.
Summary: This receiver was comparatively very cheap. It has plenty of power and it sounds clean and undistorted even at high volume. It has all the needed setup options. It also has the capability of sending a full bass signal to my powered sub without stinting on the bass output to my 4 (over the top) full...
Summary: We bought this receiver because we wanted a way for my husband (who has severe hearing loss)to listen to the stereo output from our tv through headphones, while I listened to it from speakers on the wall.
Summary: This receiver replaces a Pioneer receiver I have had for 20 years. What a differnce! I currently have this receiver hooked up to Pioneer CS 99A speakers which are almost 40 years old. The sound is brilliant. I am enjoying playing with the different settings and am very pleased!
