Summary: I received the VSX-823 and found that I needed to purchase a optical audio cable to get any sound from the TV, this receiver does not have all the A/V ports as the most other do. If you purchase this item make sure you purchase the optical cable to use with it.
Summary: A good receiver but not outstanding. It was on sale and I think it is as good as any other receiver of the same price. However, it does have one annoying bug: it automatically switches from Stereo to to Dolby Surround Sound, depending upon the received audio on television.
Passable, don't count on network functions (Revised)
9 July 2013
Summary: The network functions don't work, and there doesn't seem to be any support rather than sending it back and rolling the dice. Firmware updates aren't there, and it isn't even listed on the Pioneer site as a product. Quality of video and sound is good for the price.
