Summary: After 4 years of service, the HDMI Out died, and I haven't been able to find a part number to replace it. The rest of the system works fine, but I can't use it for any sort of video watching anymore.
Pros: The quality of this system is fantastic. The sound output after years of service is still great, and the setup feature with the multi-directional mic is awesome.
Cons: HDMI switching is wonky, works most of the time, but sometimes you have to switch between inputs to get it to click to the right one.
Summary: I've had this receiver for about 2 years now and decided to review it. It is great receiver for the price and definitely delivers good sound. I have it set up in the living space of my 1 bedroom apartment.
Summary: I bought this Reciever because it had everything that i needed in it, however after ive been using it for a while i have become disappointed with it. The sound some times just turns off when im watching a movie and i have to turn it off and then back on.
Summary: I bought this unit for a few reasons. First and foremost, I needed a more powerful receiver with HDMI inputs. I got that. It has lots of power. True rating (from the manual) is 90 watts full bandwidth with nice low THD. Those in the know understand that 90 full bandwidth watts is plenty.
Great mid-range A/V receiver with many bells and whistles

Summary: After a lot of research i decided to go with Pioneer VSX 919 and glad i did. Some of the pluses are great sound quality, competitively priced with many features (built-in iPhone/iPod link is my favorite)!! If you need to use only 3 HDMI ports then i would go with this one instead of VSX 1019.
Summary: I have spent hours reviewing all types of recievers and went through many stores to see them perform. I have got to say that dollar for dollar its hard to match the Pioneer VSX-919AH or the VSX-919AH. It has a superb HMI, more options then i know what to do with.
Summary: Nice receiver! So much versatality it's mind boggling! I'm still learning it's full potential. The hand book is ok but not very easy to find your way around. At first I counldn't get the sub-woofer to really crank but after dilegent tinkering finally figured it out.
Awesome Features & Sound, but Quirky. Poor Remote & Manual

Summary: I used banana plugs for the speaker connections and hookup was very easy. I highly recommend. I hooked up HDMI from PS3 and the TV audio with composite (Red&White) that I will upgrade to Toslink Optical. Analog audio is quiet and you have to crank up the volume. This is pretty typical.
Summary: This receiver was a vast improvement over my nearly 10 year old sony htib setup. Setup: -------------- Aside from wiring, which will go much faster if you have banana plugs for the speaker wires, setup was relatively straight forward.
Summary: For thoses who are looking for the receiver to say Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio receivers won't say it because it decodes it as direct sound (pcm direct,pure direct or analog direct) use the stream direct option on this receiver.
Pros: This thing does it all
Cons: It said it comes with HDMI 1080p Video Repeater which i did not come with & one of my 3 component plugins is bad but who cares all my hdmi's work just fine and that's what counts.
