Summary: Great receiver for the money. COHO liquidation was great to work with. Wanted a receiver with A/B outputs and with iOS integration. Higher end models have Airplay, but only audio. This doesn't have Airplay but I just added a $99 AppleTV and have both audio and video. Works great.
Summary: This receiver has turned out to be a great entry level reciever. The price was right and its working great. It is a little complicated at first, but with practice comes ease. The only thing that chaps my hide is the on-screen controls dont work when using the hdmi plugs. so in order to fine tune speaker levels I had to unplug hdmi and use the RCA cables, tune, then plug hdmi back up. I recommend this receiver to anyone with a budget 'cause it works great.
Summary: We are thrilled with our new Pioneer Receiver. We are very technically challenged and it was very easy to set up and attach to our bose speakers and our DVD player. The instructions were easy to follow. We also love the way you can dial to get to each piece of equipment you have hooked up to the receiver instead of searching for a hard to read button.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good Remote Control
Summary: Love it sounds great lots of power to my Bic America speakers. Great picture ect. The only thing I don't like is that I can't run one cable from the receiver to the tv. To use component video I have to run a component cable to the tv and the same for HDMI. I would like to just run one HDMI for all the items that i am running through the receiver but i have to run HDMI and Component. It is frustrating.
Pros: Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: For the price this head unit is very hard to beat. It was easy for me to hook all of my other electronics to. This units works great with my BD player, flat screen TV and surround speakers. High def home theather at a great price. The other good thing about this unit is the fact that I can run my outdoor speakers without running the indoors at the same time. The Ipod connection is a nice plus too.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I bought this Pioneer System to replace a still functioning previous Pioneer System that I had for more than 10 years. This one was appealing because it had both HDMI Input & Output connections, which allowed me to eliminate a lot of wiring. Two Things could make this better: 1.) The On Screen Display (OSD), which I have yet to use or figure out, should be made to function over the HDMI Output connection to your TV, rather than requiring a normal Video Cable connection...
Pros: Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, HDMI InputOutput
