Summary: We bought our unit 2009. We love the fact everything goes through this one device. So you set up the HDMI to the TV and connect everythig else to this Theater System. The only thing I have to do I turn on the other equipment, with their controller, and I'm up and running.
Summary: I purchased this receiver a while back and it works great. I am only using it right now as a stereo receiver but someday hope to expand to 5.1 surround. My stereo speakers are 140watt max and it drives them much louder than what I would normally want to listen to music at, loud enough to distort.
Summary: The sound, power, and variety of options this receiver offers is wonderful. The on-screen display for the iPhone/iPod is very basic, but the functionality is fine. Overall, it's hard to beat the amount of features, power, and sound for the price.
Summary: I bought this Pioneer receiver because I was given a pair of really nice, old Technics speakers and I needed a way to use them. I settled on this receiver since it had a myriad of hook-ups in the back, a very reasonable amount of power to send out to each speaker, and was well within my price range.
Summary: This is one of those products which is cheap but not skimpy on features. Its got most of the bells and whistles of high end product, like TrueHD, DTSHD and other sound formats. It onscreen display and most of all yes it will process the audio through your HDMI.
Summary: The receiver was a breeze to setup and gives plenty of input/output options that allow you to customize your setup with ease. For instance, I was able to hook-up the receiver to my dvr via hdmi.
Summary: This purchase was an upgrade and a great one. The different ways you can listen to your surround sound is amazing. It has every possible connection that you may need and I had no problem connecting it to my blu ray, my HDTV 1080p, and a DVD/VCR recorder.
