Amazing

Hudson, Amazon
9 January 2013
  • 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.

Awesome for what I needed it to be.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Not very user friendly & bass is pretty weak.

  • 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.

Pure enjoyment

Sergio Santiago Jr., Amazon
30 May 2009
  • 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.

Pioneer VSX-518K 5.1-Channel AV Receiver

Greg, Amazon
7 May 2009
  • 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...

Great Bargain

  • 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!

Good Auxillary Receiver

had2bthere, Amazon
29 March 2009
  • Summary: Product does a great job for $135. My only complaint is no "Zone 2" functionality exists. There are A/B speaker settings but you can't run 1 input into Zone 1 and another input into Zone 2.
