  • Summary: Setting up the receiver does take some expertise. Setting up Vtunes is easy, just follow the instructions on the web page. Setting up the remote to control other components is little tougher than expected. Still haven't mastered its programming and controls of other equipment. Overall though the receiver has excellent sound and I would recommend it to a friend.

  • Summary: Good receiver but it has issues were I don't hear any sound once in a while. It is good but no WIFI. It does have Ethernet so you will need to buy a wired to wireless adapter which only cost $20

  • Summary: I had an old KLM receiver that finally went out. With some research and review reading, I purchased this Pioneer receiver. Easy set up. Plenty of hook-ups on the back. Connected my Blu-ray player and floor speakers. Sounds great. A very good replacement. The surround sound has a echoic affect to it, but switch it to stereo and its perfect. Excellent for movie watchers who have big screen TV's. Along with my sound bar, it like in a theater.

  • Summary: I replaced an old Panasonic 5 disc changer I had for over 15yrs. My first major task with this Pioneer VSX 822 was hooking up different components and speakers. This system educated me and let me know I am way behind in modern technology. I had to purchase a high speed HDMI cable that is equipped to perform the ACH connection back from my Smart TV. That did not work because my TV does not have the ACH capabilities.

  • Summary: Everything works as expected. The set-up was easy. It does need a firmware update for Pandora, but I have that elsewhere so I am not missing anything. Well pleased with this purchase.
