one of the best

  • Summary: Awesome sound. World of difference between my old Sony and this really nice Pioneer. The HDMI channel switcher makes it so much easier for my Harmony remote to start an activity appropriately. The iPod/iPhone feature should also be more Android friendly. After all Android sales are on the rise while Apple's is plummeting.

  • Summary: I've been a fan of Pioneer products (and some of my friends) since the 80's, and have never been disappointed with my purchases of their products. Not a shill for corporate anyone. Most corporate leaders are in my opinion psychopaths. Lets face facts though. How many people, including myself have purchased Sony products and then experience the WTF factor??? My previous home theatre amplifier was a Pioneer xxxx that was 15 years old (still working).

  • Summary: Excellent equipment, when there was a programming problem or a familiarity problem, Pioneer customer service was quick to point me in the right direction-always had the right answer. I have had no problems with the equipment after using it in a very confined space-no overheat shut-offs either! A truly great buy!

The features, build quality, and value made this receiver an easy choice.

  • Summary: My TV had only 2 HDMI inputs but the VSX 820-K added 4 solving my shortage instantly. The Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system was an unexpected surprise as it worked great for me. A lot of receiver for the money.

A great receiver for the price

  • Summary: I really don't understand how people can complain that this receiver is lacking certain features. If it doesn't have features you want, buy something else. Also, it's a good idea to look at the user manual from the manufacturer's website before purchasing, to be sure it has what you want. That way there will be no surprises. I do understand 1 star for those unfortunate reviewers who got stuck with lemons.

For the price

  • Summary: For the price a very nice piece of equipment. A lot of user friendly and advanced features that are not that hard to learn after reading the manual. Was able to install and get working within minutes after connecting the equipment. Very nice sound and advanced sound fields that provide room filling sound for small to medium sized living areas. I had thought about going with Harmon Kardon or Denon or even the more expensive pioneer elite, but was unsure about quality vs.

Best move I've done

  • Summary: I've been a fan with Pioneer recives and amps since the 60's when I fist put together a home component stereo system. My last reciever went belly up and I went looking for a new one. Well ! This reciever has more things then I clould ask for at a very nice price. It has 5 HMDI inputs and one output for your HDTV. It is also set up for the new 3D TVs. Setting up the suround sound was simple with the mic they sent with the unit.
