  • 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.

  • 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.

Good cheap stereo

Kelly Koch, Amazon

  • Summary: I kind of wish I had gone for a better or newer model, but this stereo gets the job done. The Pandora app is a pain to get to, as you need to use a TV to navigate. It's usually easier to just Airplay to my Airport Express and switch the stereo to the Aux input.

  • 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.
