Summary: I first viewed this receiver at Best Buy and after thinking about it I ordered it off Amazon. Free shipping and a slightly lower price. Well worth the money. It produces wonderful sound. I've been using it mostly with my blue ray player and it really rocks.
Summary: This is a great value for getting into home theater. The unit does everything the beginning to intermediate user could want, including an automatic calibration that compensates for speaker quality and placement.
Summary: The Pioneer receiver works great to integrate the TV and stereo into an excellent home movie experience. The sounds quality has been excellent. I've been very pleased with this Pioneer product. It has been the linchpin for the home entertainment system.
Excellent product, hits the nail on the head and for a great price!

Summary: I owned a previous model (VSX-821, i believe) in this same series and loved it. My first one died after approximately 3 years of use. Given the price i paid for it, and its performance/features i was not too sour about it failing on me.
Summary: The VSX 823 is a great receiver. Easy hook-up and sounds great. I use it for my projection system in the man cave and it brings the football games to life. Great surround sound and an amazing picture through my BenQ projector.
Summary: Works Fine! I have had no problems. I've just had the receiver for a little while but so far so good. I don't have everything hooked up but for what I bought it for it is working! I needed to boost the volume for my television and it does that. I have yet to hook up my DVD player.
