Summary: I purchased this system because of the name -Pioneer, Ive had Pioneer products in the past and they have been fantastic but unfortunately this system has to be the poorest quality product ever. The sound is poor, within 2 months two of the four HDMI ports stopped working, the system seems to randomly switch off, it honestly is of extremely poor quality.
Summary: tonight i read all the other reviews on this, which were steller, and talked me in to driving over and getting this receiver to replace my samsung dvd surround sound that just went out. after spending all night thinking it was something i was doing wrong during the setup, i got it to play excellent surround sound audio. it sounded exactly like i wanted it to. HOWEVER i couldn't get any picture on my tv.
Summary: I couldn`t imagine Pioneer can brand such a low quality product like this one... the sound is terrible, beside that, you don`t have many options to correct it, just useless echo effects...dissapointing... there is no crisp, no relief in sound, just flat boring sound. for someone who wants listen tv it`s ok, but not for music.
