Summary: I purchased a suround system several years ago. About six months ago the Pioneer receiver went out. I purchased a used Pioneer receiver through Amazon. It wasn't boxed very well but it works great.
Summary: I bought the reciver as part of Black Friday Sale from Best Buy. I bought high quality Polk speakers to go with it but the problem I see is that the reciever volume needs to be set very high to hear anything from TV.
Summary: The subwoofer that I used made the people down the street come to my house and told use to turn the bass down and the other speaker sounded good but there was no remote when I got the reciver because it was a used one
Summary: like everyone else, my audio is cutting out. It works again when I off/on the receiver, but this has become a more than once daily necessity. Doesn't look like there is anything that can be done, so I guess I'll just ride the storm till I can't take it anymore.
Summary: Then the nasty intermittent loss-of-sound problem hit me. I was thinking it was due to loose connection, overheating/overloading, until I checked again here on Amazon. I am NOT alone... When I bought this piece of junk, the overall review was good.
Summary: Thank goodness I found these reviews! I was going insane trying to fix my setup. Checked all my connections, all my other devices, etc... It just turns out that the receiver is junk. Hate to toss it, but guess I will. Lasted about 3 years, which is pretty bad if you ask me.
Summary: I've had this system for 3 years and I am very pleased with it. I have it playing through JBL FS-1000 Floor Speakers and although the wattage doesnt completely match, it still sounds fantastic. Calibrating the speakers is so easy with the MCACC system. Really makes a huge difference.
Summary: I have to say this for all who are insterted in this unit. When I first got it it worked good. It was a little hard to first set up. This was my second A/V receiver, the first was an RCA (and that one still works after 7 years). After about a year and a half the left channel went out.
Summary: I received the wrong remote with my system and have had a hard time setting up everything properly. It works now and everything sounds great, but the universal remote was a little wanting for universality (couldn't find codes for my tv/dvr). I will keep this system for a long time, as long as I can.
