Summary: THIS ONE OF PIONEER'S LEAST KNOWN RECEIVER. I BOUGHT ONE FOR MY BEDROOM. IT MORE THAN DID IT'S JOB. IT ACTUALLY IS BETTER FOR A HOME THEATER SETTING. LIVING ROOM, DEN, MAN CAVE. EVEN A GARAGE. IT HAS A FAIR AMOUNT OF HDMI HOOK UPS TO ENJOY. I SOLD MINE AND UP GRADED BUT BELEIVE ME IT'S WORTH THE PRICE LISTED ON EBAY.
Summary: Me and my cousin we went in halfs on this baby. We got it home and my cousin (drunk as usual) dropped the box! Good for us nothing brokedid. We set it up and hookedid up 4 spieakers and turned it on but nothing much happened. What good is a expensive tuner thingy if you can't not gettit working? I gave up and went to bed; my cousin passedid out on the floor.
Summary: This is a VERY solid product. Sure there are things you can gripe about (old-school text display makes things a little tougher, like when you want to balance speakers) but all-in-all it's great. I had no problem setting it up after reading the manual a bit. The sound is great and full, the sub is hearty, and I'm running all of my video devices through it with no problem at all. I think it's a great buy for the price.
Summary: So I researched multiple stereos to make sure I got the right one. This was definitely a great purchase!! It has worked good and installed in less than 30 min. I am a technical person so was really simple to get everything hooked up. Pros: - Easy to install. - Remote compatible with multiple electronics. - Doesn't get to hot I have an xbox placed on top of it. - Manual shows you how to set up sound preference as in speaker distance and multiple other things.
Summary: I can't say I love it in functional but it works and meets what I want - audio output. My previous DENON A-B 5.1 channel machine damaged by last time flood in Taiwan. I stand no music about two years until I saw this pioneer cost effective selling. I open the box and place then connector device I had then I enjoy the audio immediately. My kids ask me about his cartoon via DVD player to play his favor video, then problems comes.
Summary: This receiver is great - for the price and the input/output options it is a must-buy. But when I opened up the package, there was no remote control and no manual. Worse, my setup requires me to change the audio-HDMI throughput option to "thru" which can only be done using the remote control. And they did not ship it with a remote control. ...after a fairly painless return/exchange, I have my new receiver and it works splendidly!
Summary: I have guests coming that I want to give a "Feeling of Home" to. I needed a Receiver that would have the new HD sounds for a reasonable price for the guest room. How little did I know that this is 3D ready also !!!! All of the HD sounds, Dolby Tru HD, DTS Master Audio and 3D for an unbelievable price. It was a 2010 Model with 1.4A HDMI connections. I installed it, 5.1 not 7.1, with a 100 watt sub..
Summary: I've been using the system for a few weeks now and the system is a no-brainer to operate. Nice instruction manual makes sense of the many possibilities that different speaker setups present. One negative is that the advertised Bluetooth option requires the specific Pioneer accessory to operate (not a generic USB connection).
