Summary: Pioneer is unconcerned about the quality of their products. Main Digital Board went bad after 15 months and because the warranty expired after 12 months they have refused to replace the Board. Is a receiver expected to last only 15 months? I will not buy another Pioneer product.
Summary: Sent it to Pioneer for check up. Heat light always coming on causing it to shut down. Came back not repaired. Tried 2 of my other receivers in the same spot in case it was a speaker, they worked fine. Now stuck with a $300 paper weight.

Summary: After 6 months stopped working. Pass thru does not work, loses HDMI signal. No HDMI output just like the other 1 star complaints. Off to the repair center again since that is the only option from Pioneer. I am so disappointed in this receiver. Pioneer is apparently not what they used to be.
Summary: No audiophile but I love this receiver. Very easy to use and I downloaded the free app for my iPhone so it is easy to control from the couch. (Sidenote: why won't vendors make apps their first priority and just include remote controls for backup support? So much better.

I would have to toggle the Pioneer Receiver from the SAT/CBL throughput to another one, such as DVD and then goe back to SAT/CBL to get the receiver to...
Summary: My receiver quit working after 4 months, and when i called customer service, they told me to bring it to a repair shop an hour away. Maybe I'm old fashioned! But I expect a quality brand to send a replacement and a return label.
