    Rated 4.1 out of 5★ by 18reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great price, great quality This is a great receiver for a great price. The sound quality and channel separation is great. 05/29/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by The Pioneer A/V Receiver is Awesome! This receiver like I said is awesome, the first thing you need to do is put the CD into your computer, I printed my book out, which is best. I did find that I could not use my other speakers, even though they were from a prior 1000 watt system, they weren't the right Ohms, so I purchased an entire speaker system with sub woofer, and for better sound buy professional speaker wire, as for the amount of speaker wire needed depends on how your setting up your speakers, for my set up I had to buy 150 ft for the size of the room the system is in. For anyone out there that is hard of hearing, you can program the speakers for the voices, and with the speakers I purchased I was even able to have voice sounds come out the rear speakers as well, with the bass controls on the sub woofer is awesome in itself, then add the bass this Receiver offers and you'll have mega thundering bass, you'll feel it through the floors, and everything is crystal clear. just make sure you don't buy a cheap speaker system. Using this Receiver with an HDMI T.V. is the best, you can do so much with this Receiver it's unreal and I love it, and I won't be returning it.If you can afford to buy separate components then this is a must have, you'll hear things in any movies that you have watched before in a whole new concept you'll hear things you didn't even know was in the movies before, I even play my Mp 3 music through this unit, it does everything I need it to do, and if you play Star War movies you'll feel the fighters ships are in the room.You don't need to have the system loud to hear everything.The unit is a bit tricky to set up make sure you read the book carefully, and if you find you cannot do it yourself get help from a friend or even call Pioneer and they will help you out, just go slowly in hooking your system up read, read, read the book on the CD. and have high end cables, to get the most from the system 09/16/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Entry Level Receiver I purchased this to power a set of outdoor speakers. After looking around and reading the reviews it seemed like a good deal, even though I was originally looking for just a stereo receiver.I have a higher end Pioneer for my TV room, so I was familiar with the setup which definitely helps. It did throw me for a couple of loops though. For example, you must use component or RCA video to the TV to get the onscreen menu to work. Don't immediately connect DVI out to the TV and wonder why it's blank (as I did for 20 minutes). Take the time and load the CD onto your PC to work through the setup instructions. 20 minutes up front will save you lots of frustration later. Even though I had done it before (a year or so ago), there were lots of differences in this model.I was never able to get the optical connection to work with my Apple TV box, but the box worked fine through a DVI connection.Sound/Power is fine for the money and I'm able to power a pair of TIC outdoor GS3's without any problem. 05/24/2013
    Rated 3 out of 5★ by Not designed for a casual stereo set-up I found that to get balanced sound especially in the low bass region, you must plan on using a subwoofer. It would not provide any usable bass frequencies to the front (left/right) stereo full range speakers no matter what settings that were input during the set-up for the receiver. I also found the FM radio tuner to be weak compared to other FM radio receivers in my home. I believe that if the main purpose is to use as a home theater A/V receiver, then it would be a good choice using the full 5.1 speaker system! But I do not believe it will provide a satisfying full range sound without a subwoofer as part of the system set-up. Because I had planned to use it as a stereo for music, and did not plan to add a subwoofer, I returned the receiver. I did find the USB port very satisfying, and the remote control of the connected iPod worked great! I was just disappointed in the lack of bass without a subwoofer connected. 08/14/2013
    Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent product Exceeded my expectations....Set up was a little challenging, but I'm an old analog guy... 07/02/2013
    Rated 2 out of 5★ by Check Compatibility with your devices Discovered the hard way that this model is not compatible with the ROKU 2 XS. I could get video but no audio through the AMP only through Pass Through and then it would only come through the TV speakers so whats the point. Read a bunch of tech blogs and discovered I am not the only one to figure this out. I played with this thing for a day to try and get it to work but I ended up taking it back and got a comparable Sony model for about $30 more. Went through the same set up procedure on the Sony and all is well now. I know its weird that a receiver would have a compatibility issue with a device, but I guess as devices get more sophisticated that possibility will become more pronounced. I also had to update the driver on my home theater PC Sound card to get it to work with the Pioneer unit but by then I was already decided to return it since it would not play nice with all my devices. My Chromecast worked with it flawlessly so it wasn't a total bust I guess. 10/28/2013
