Pioneer VSX-919AH Home Theater Receiver Review

19 June 2009
  • Conclusion: The VSX-919AH is an excellent package at $400 MSRP (less if you shop around), though it does have some drawbacks. HDMI switching was not perfect - you can overcome this by hooking up your sources directly to the display, but then there goes the advantage of a single cable solution from receiver to display as well as the sonic advantages of HDMI audio decoding.
  • Pros: Fast and easy-to-use auto calibration feature (MCACC), Excellent iPod/iPhone integration, Two zones for the price of one!, Full HDMI video and audio support with on-board decoding of DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD and multi-channel PCM, Affordable, Fast and easy-to-use auto calibration feature (MCACC), Excellent iPod/iPhone integration, Two zones for the price of one!, Full HDMI video and audio support with on-board decoding of DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD and multi-channel PCM, Afford...

  • Excerpt: No longer does surround sound always mean the lossy compression of Dolby Digital or DTS. No longer is it limited to the relatively sparse offerings on DVD-Audio or SACD. The Blu-ray format delivers the highest of high-fidelity sound at ocean-deep bit depths and stratospheric sampling frequencies with multiple channels and no loss of data thanks to Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.

Pioneer VSX-919AH

What Hi-Fi?
13 March 2010
  • Excerpt: It's very easy to be seduced by this Pioneer's glossy black fascia, punchy display and smattering of bright neon blue and red lights. But the '919AH needs to do more than just flutter its eyelids to secure a good star rating. Thankfully, Pioneer has always packed its amplifiers with useful technology and the '919AH exhibits some features that have trickled down from its more expensive models.
  • Pros: Stylish design, smooth to operate, focused, precise, agile sound, iPod functionality
  • Cons: Not quite as refined as class leaders

Pioneer VSX-919AH

3 April 2010
  • Excerpt: Der Pioneer VSX-919AH liefert 7.1-Surround-Sound und beherrscht die neuesten Tonformate von Blu-ray-Discs und HDTV. Ob beim Pioneer nicht nur die Ausstattung, sondern auch die Qualität stimmt, erfahren Sie im Test.
  • Pros: hohe Leistung im Stereobetrieb, unabhängige Mehrraumbeschallung, drei HDMI-Eingänge, schönes Bildschirmmenü, USB-Anschluss für MP3-Player, analoger 7.1-Anschluss, mitgeliefertes iPod-Adapterkabel
  • Cons: mäßige Stereowiedergabe, Gerätedefekt bei Leistungsmessung an 3,2 Ohm, kein S-Videoanschluss

  • Excerpt: Рекомендуем любителям музыки с любого источника. Конструкция Традиционно строгая и вместе с тем нарядная внешность. Фасад Pioneer VSX-919AH выполнен из матового алюминия (может быть черным); по краям расположены крупные поворотные регуляторы изменения громкости и выбора источника, напоминающие автомобильные фары. Треугольная канавка четко делит переднюю панель на зону индикации, где расположен флуоресцентный дисплей, и зону управления.

VSX-919 AH

16 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Mit seiner ordentlichen Ausstattung, der angenehmen Bedienung und dem bei normalen Pegeln besten Klang würde der Pioneer eigentlich vorn liegen. Leider macht die niedrige Verstärkerleistung im Mehrkanalbetrieb dem einen Strich durch die Rechnung.
