Okay For The Price

The Accidental Druggist, Amazon

  • Summary: This receiver has good value for the price, however I can't say I experience enveloping surround sound from all of my speakers. It does an adequate job but I'm not blown away. I probably won't buy again.

Pioneer AV receiver

Charles H. Bolton "schultz540", Amazon
30 November 2012
  • Summary: I had a previous Pioneer AV receiver on my entertaiment system for a number of years before it died. I installed this new Pioneer AV receiver and it does not come up with the rest of the system when I power up the system. Instead I get a message that says 'checking for external speakers' and then the receiver powers up. I never had this situation with my previous receiver!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It works for my needs

Deanareno "Deanereno", Amazon
4 July 2012
  • Summary: It was inexpensive and was suited for my needs. Nothing to shout about. I just wanted the surround for certain movies that I watch and it does the trick. The pitfalls are that unless your local television station broadcasts in stereo you only get the center speaker for mono. My old Kenwood would compensate and push it out as stereo. I just didn't want to have to spend a 1000 plus to replace it since I don't use it as often as I used too.

Great sound, bad UI

Anders Johnson, Amazon
28 October 2011
  • Summary: I bought this to replace a 3 year old Onkyo that died from a bad HDMI circuit. The most impressive thing about it is how cool it runs while still delivering sound that is every bit as refined (to my ears) as the more expensive and much more power hungry Onkyo. But the main problem with this thing is the lousy user interface.

Frustratingly complicated

Andy F., Amazon
25 January 2012
  • Summary: Having had this thing now for several days, I am still struggling to get to grips with it. The instruction book is nothing short of a disgrace and I am not usually beaten by new gadgets. Seems to work OK but so far at least, not much of a pleasure to use. Update: After several weeks I have mastered the thing (to a certain extent).

Gut bis jetzt

M. Roessler "Jubei Chan", Amazon
2 December 2014
  • Summary: Ich habe diesen Receiver jetzt seit ca. 2,5 + 3 Jahren. Seit gestern Fehler UE22, nicht behebbar, da das Aufspielen der neuen Firmware via USB nicht funktioniert. Das Update brach immer wieder mit Fehlermeldung ab. Alle Tipps aus dem WWW probiert, bis ich schließlich herausgefunden habe, dass es sich wahrscheinlich um ein Problem mit dem Hardwarespeicher gibt. Der ist defekt und kann daher nicht mit einer neuen FW überspielt werden. Sehr ärgerlich.

Nicht unbedingt mein Favorit

D. Hechler, Amazon
3 October 2011
  • Summary: Ich hatte 2 Stück dieses Geräts, weil ich beim ersten einen Produktionsfehler vermutete. Doch auch das Ersatzgerät stellte mich nicht zufrieden. AirPlay funktionierte nicht richtig bzw. teils gar nicht, das durchschleifen des Signals im Standby funktioniert nicht und das Menü ist total unübersichtlich und in meinen Augen unvollständig; das meiste wird nicht mal am TV angezeigt, es wird fast alles nur über das Display des Receivers angezeigt - echt schade.
