Summary: very sorry ever bought this amp. it is too hard to hook up, and it just does not do what they said it would. this is the first time from amazon that i felt we got screwed. hope you don't buy this
Summary: I bought this receiver to use for my main music source in the house (it's not hooked up to a tv). I like that you don't have to have an extra adaptor for the ipod - it plugs right into the front of the unit and stays charged continuously.
Summary: The idea was to run a single hdmi cable to the side of my low profile wall mounted TV. So I get this receiver, plug my cable box using component because that was how it was connected to tv before. To my surprise it did not work through hdmi output.
Summary: OMG I am hearing things that I never heard before from my speakers, which are no slouches. After hooking up all of the components and cables I am really amazed at what a great 5.1 unit this is. There is at least 20% more power in this unit than any other comporably priced unit.
Summary: This is a good receiver, particularly considering the price. But I still haven't figured out to use it, beyond the basics. I find that adjusting the sound, either at the panel or with the remote, is unusually complicated and not at all intuitive. Keep the users manual handy.
Summary: A friend has this product and for the price it truly rocks, I'm not a big Pioneer fan but dollar for dollar this is a decent unit with good features
Pros: This is just to fix something from someone being an idiot. Video Switching when talking about HDMI is the act of switching between one or two sources, not upgrading or changing a signal to and from the HDMI signal, that would be a converter not a switch. You shouldn't give bad marks to a product ...
