I love everything, but one problem ruins it...

 

The sound quality and features are excellent. Very easy to use, yet very adjustable. Too much for the common person to adjust everything, but simple enough with the easy auto settings

When you turn it on (more than not) the screen has a purple tint to it. Usually turning it off and back on fixes this, but its EXTREMELY annoying. I run my sat box through it, and the pioneer to the tv ; Now it has gotten to the point where ive turned...

Half Baked

 

Under $300 I say it might be worth it if your expectations are not too high. $530? Forget about it. Spend your hard earned dollars elsewhere.

A lot of features and a lower price. It has not failed on my like other posters have experienced and I've had it for about 7 months now. It does sound OK. There is something to be desired from the sound but I think it could be fixed with manual...

Too many things do not work as advertised ; 1. On screen menu only works with HDMI and can be hard to get it to even output HDMI. Gives some off the wall message "Can't Select ; 2. The app is not robust. You cannot control zone 2 with the remote app...

Overall good set-up

 

As far as the reciever goes if you can get it for bellow $400 it is well worth it. I don't think that this item deserved some of the low reviews because of some the design choices (legacy upscaling, none user friendly interface etc.) because well TBH a...

the auto set up is simple to use and there are a lot of options that this reciever gives you which is good enough for the aspiring techie/new audiophile/ home theatre. I have it set up with front hieght which quite honestly is awesome compared to...

This thing is not friendly to the noobs of the audio world. I made this mistake and learned through the time I have had this thing that you need to have some knowledge. The only other con I would honestly give this is that does not have an option for a...

Good while it worked

 

had high hopes from pioneer, but wont buy a single product from them again.

Easy setup

had it for about 5 months, and now the included remote trips out. wont change the volume, wont change the set presets for auto/direct surround options etc. none of the buttons on the actual unit work, except for the volume control knob ; The tech...

Great AV Receiver

 

The operations manual included on the CD does a really good job of explaining how to set up and control the receiver. I imagine that many people will find it a bit intimidating because of the large amount of information provided. Be patient and read...

The sound quality is very good, loaded with HDMI inputs, network functions work great. Airplay is a great feature, Internet radio is awesome and has an impressive selection of radio stations. The Pioneer control app works great on my ipod

The on screen interface (home screen) for setting up the receiver is really bland and basic. When you consider all the effort put into the controls and function of this receiver, Pioneer went really cheap and dirty on the menus. It works fine, just...

Great product so far

 

Right now only have a 2.1 hooked up to this system but it does quite a nice job. I had a hard time getting it to actually play bass through the sub, finally figured out I had to change the front speakers to "small" instead of "large". As mentioned HDMI...

plenty of HDMI inputs ; great sound with cheap speakers (better ones on the way now, using my old Aiwa speakers paired with a 12" Klipsch sub, 2 F-20 floor speakers on the way) ; Airplay is great now that my network issues are resolved ; zone 2 will be...

only 1 optical and digital coax in ; HDMI control doesn't seem to work terribly well, though maybe better if I was connecting everything via HDMI ; GUI isn't very nice to look at, including the internet radio/pandora/airplay screens ; preset EQs don't...

Nice receiver

 

I've had this about two weeks and it is a nice sounding receiver. I've had mostly Yamaha receivers and thought I would try something different. It works great and the sound is much better than the Yamaha's I've owned. The Bluetooth feature is...

Too early to know
