  • Summary: I was replacing my old Pioneer. I loved the HDMI ports as it made hooking up easy. The sound is great and it is nice to be able to play my Ipod tunes.

Was a great unit, 10 weeks in it developed a problem ...

  • Summary: Was a great unit, 10 weeks in it developed a problem with the Display. Sent to a Pioneer Repair station and after 3 weeks, the part they received to fix it was bad out of the box. Called Pioneer Customer Service and they decided to send me a new current year model, the VSX-524-K Our Previous Pioneer went 9 years. Would recommend buying the newer unit.

  • 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.

Great Receiver

Leah, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a Pioneer last time, too, and it worked perfectly - in fact, much better than the surge-protection power cord, apparently, because the cord didn't work. So I found this model and have been using it now for several months. It's had nicer features than the one I had before, and the speaker set-up is really user-friendly.

I just received this receiver I find it funny that people had trouble installing this system

David Watson, Amazon

  • Summary: I just received this receiver I find it funny that people had trouble installing this system. First of all the setup will show up on your tv through HDMI you just have to be willing to follow directions. From the time I pulled this product out of the box it took me a little more than an hour and I was was watching Death Race with my Infinity Primus series surround sound. This receiver in conjunction with a full balanced infinity speaker set up will rock the house.

nice receiver

Christopher Holden, Amazon

  • Summary: this sounds great and has enough hdmi's if you have too many inputs. One design flaw: you can't rename inputs. I did have a problem where the hdmi's stopped working, but the issue has been noted online and there is a simple fix to reset the settings. The OSD is not pretty. The many sound modes are a bit of a pain to scroll through and there's not individual keys on the remote so you have to scroll. airplay audio works nicely.

Almost lightning proof and it sounds and looked great on my 60"

Andrew Simons, Amazon
7 July 2014
  • Summary: I loved it. Now I just like it. It did everything I wanted until it got hit by lightning. Now it only does one thing I wanted and that's play sound. Somehow every HDMI port got fried so I can't run video through it but when it wasn't struck down from above it worked great and it still sounds great. I can't fault Pioneer for the lightning. It fried 2 TV's and a bunch of computers and none of that stuff worked at all after so that says something for Pioneer!

I like it for more reasons than I have the time ...

John M, Amazon
3 July 2014
  • Summary: I like it for more reasons than I have the time to go into. Does everything I wanted, sounds really good to great; have it connected to NHT speakers in a 5.1 configuration. Bought to replace a SONY that one day just quit - TV is a HD Panasonic 55" Plasma, have a ROKU, use the Pandora feature in the Pioneer. All in all very happy with the brand and purchase.
