  • Summary: Fm reception is poor.could not tune in any of the stations i listen too.my old onkyo got them all.bass and tremble controls only work if you are using large speakers.the set up micrphone set my speakers as large and the subwoofer at 23 feet away. The sub is 6 feet and i have a matched system of 4 inch speakers. you cannot set the subwoofer at 120 which yamaha recommended to with their suwoofer.high pitched when playing cds.returning for credit.

  • Summary: I have had a great experience with Pioneer in the past with two separate receivers over a 20 year span. However, I have had nothing but problems with my A/V Receiver 822-K. I've owned it for the better part of the past year, and the quality in this product is very poor. Issues: * The remote control no longer works with the device; it is not the remote control -- we've replaced the remote control twice and we attempted to use the Pioneer App on the mobile as well as...

Not built to last.

  • Summary: Within a month the speaker outputs failed... I sent it off to the factory authorized repair center and they fixed it (It cost me $30 to ship it there and back) and now 8 months in, the hdmi pass-through failed, so I can no longer use it with my tv. At this point, I don't think I want to spend another $30 on a $200 unit that's already failed twice...chalk it up to the "dummy" tax.

  • Summary: Too complicated for me, and malfunctioned during setup (TV picture was going off and on most of the time). I had to use a magnifying glass to use the remote. The sound is good. No problem there, but very trying one one's nerves. Young people may not have a problem with it, but it's not for the golden years.

  • Summary: alto this unit offers a lot for the hdmi folks there is little for analog owner with needs for audio outs for vcr's ,cassette recorders etc. I tried to contact Pioneer for suggestions and received no response. I WAS a long time pioneer customer, but no longer..... Walmart is excellent about returns.

  • Summary: ordered for Christmas to replace a 40 year old Pioneer receiver. Very very disappointed in this system and will never buy another Pioneer, Seller is unresponsive on return. I had two audio men try to get this thing to work with no luck. They had just set up a large audio system but they couldn't help. avoid this unit and this seller.

HDMI Passthrough failure.

J. Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: After 45 days the HDMI out no longer outputs a signal rendering the unit worthless. Of course, I can't exchange it with Amazon after 30 days so I guess I'll have to go through the manufacturer. This seems to be a known issue in audio forums. Buyer beware.
