Summary: It's 5 years now since I bought this Pioneer Amplifier and up to now it still works like new...I installed 7 Bose speakers on this amp. and a 200watt Infinity active Subwoofer works really well. All my guest and relatives love to sing and watch movies at my house because of this Sound system.
Overall good, but gets hot, remote doesn't control all devices

Summary: We bought this to replace an old Pioneer receiver that was no longer working. It has the capability to be much more that what we need, so this is a limited review. It does get hot in our stereo cabinet when the glass door is closed if it is on for a few hours. I was disappointed with the remote.
Summary: I'm very happy with this receiver, it has a lots of power and sounds great through my JBL'S. I'm not even using the surround sound capabilitys yet but just the stereo mode sounds great with the CD's, DVD'S, and TV. It looks great too with the blue lights.
Summary: 4 out 5 stars- a good reciever for the price and $200 dollars cheaper than best buy. To save much time and aggravation however- please remember that you won't get sound with just the HDMI wire connection- you must add an audio (optical/ etc..) wire hook up as well.
Summary: This is the most important thing you need to know about this receiver. If you are either hoping to have only one cable from your tv to your receiver -- or if you are planning on enjoying true 7.1 surround... this is not the receiver you want.
Summary: HDMI sounds like a great idea, a single cable that can support audio and video. The problems come when using devices like this one. This unit will not input audio through HDMI. It will pass audio though via HDMI, but that does not help. You must use additional audio cables with this receiver.
Summary: This receiver has very good sound quality. For this alone and its various sound settings I would give this product a 5 star rating. But there are a few things you must know to make an informed purchase. First if you input an hdmi source you must output the same.
Summary: Great product for a good price tag. Got all the options and rear connections more than I need. Great sound. Sweet remote with LCD panel. I am satisfied with this product. The HDMI function included for this price earn the *****
