Summary: This is a beautiful unit. It has HDMI hookups for DVD player and monitor plus all other formats including optical. DTS, Dolby Digital, THX certified, ProLogic 1 & 2, the list goes on and on. You can adjust audio effects to many different room settings. For the money, this is one grand receiver. I have a Paradigm surround speaker system and now I may have to replace my fronts with bigger, badder towers. There's plenty of power to run it all. Tawn in Minneapolis Mn.
Summary: This Pioneer Elite receiver has overall pleased me to the fullest. The sound is full, crisp and clear with no distortion at high levels. Operations can be tricky but is always with todays receivers. After messing around with all the features for a few hours, I was very pleased. Even though the HDMI doesn't support audio, I believe the audio out through its optical connections is much more reliable for proper surround sound.
Summary: Pros? Its Pioneer. It's black.Good sound. Dislike? Cheap plastic face plate. Receiver's dimension: is longer than wider. Booklet is really cheap, made of cheap paper with hard to see font, its kind of Wall Mart quality. Remote also looks and feels cheap. To set this receiver up you have to connect it to monitor.Small and outdated display. Average design.
Summary: Very fast and it was just as advertised. New in box and I am very happy with the price. My 9 year old Sony died what a change in receivers I love how it controls my Ipod from the remote. The sound is great and brought to life my home viewing to the next level.
Summary: I've been using this product for almost a year now. It has been a good receiver overall. But ... I just recently tried to use the HDMI inputs and ran into unexpected limitations: The receiver does not decode the audio from the HDMI sources so you have to hook up an additional digital audio connection from the source to the receiver.
Summary: Another great product from Pioneer. No problem to hook up. Everything works great good sound. Lots of power.I pod cable inc. Great service from AMAZON. Returned the ONKYO TX-SR605 and got this. Glad I did.
