Pioneer VSX-94TXH 7.1 A/V Receiver with HDMI 1.3a

 

The last Pioneer receiver review I personally did was in 2005 on an entry-level product (the VSX-815) which struck me as a good balance between available features and power. It will seem pretty obvious when I say that this flagship Elite AV receiver...

Pioneer VSX-94TXH 7.1 A/V Receiver with HDMI 1.3a Review

 

The Pioneer VSX-94TXH is a solid, well-built 7-channel receiver. For those who consider power to be king, give the Pioneer a second look - it's got that department nailed.

Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH A/V Receiver Reviewed

 

Andrew Robinson called the VSX-94TXH "a delight to use and among the easiest full-featured receivers to live with day-to-day." He also noted that it filled rooms with "rich, full, dynamic and dare I say, analog-like sound that suits a wide variety of...

Terrific build quality and a robust feature set make the VSX-94TXH a class leader among the competition ; The VSX-94TXH's internal direct energy amplifiers provide more than ample power for a variety of loudspeakers and rooms, easily filling them with...

The VSX-94TXH's remote, like most from Pioneer, is truly awful and the only item in the package that doesn't qualify for Elite status. Get a third-party universal remote once the initial set-up is completed ; The set-up menus are vast and complicated...

The Pioneer VSX-94TXH sits in the marketplace amidst heavy competition but, in my opinion, it sets itself apart from the rest with its comprehensive feature set, un-receiver-like sound quality and stunning good looks. When you consider the competition...

UltimateAVmag.com: Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH A/V Receiver

 

If a Pioneer A/V receiver is given the distinguished Elite status, you can bet it's going to provide top-level features and performance. So it is with the Pioneer Elite VSX-94TXH, a 7.1-channel, THX Select2-certified AVR that employs Pioneer's...

Exceptional sonic performances from all sources, Enveloping and coherent surround, Easy and effective audio calibration/EQ, Four HDMI inputs, LAN-compatible, Access to all types of audio media

Outdated menu design, Remote control is too busy with a relatively long learning curve, Analog video upconversion flattens color compared with HDMI signals

I'm sure you figured out by now that I'm impressed with the Pioneer VSX-94TXH. I should reveal a slight bias in that I've never encountered a Pioneer Elite model that was not at least equal to the best AVRs in its price class. Moreover, I just love the...
