Will fail after 2 years

 

Do not recommend.

Features, price

There is a manufacturing defect which Pioneer will not fix on these units. After about years (after warranty) the dreaded UE22 code will appear. If you google this you will find many many threads and forums on it. Loved it before this failure. Fix will...

Pioneer Garbage

 

Wish I'd gone with Yamaha

Lots of connections, Dual Zones, Airplay

Great when it works. Buggy software, bad network compatibility, airplay works mostly, but not always. Unit is prone to UE22 failure rendering it non-functional. (no sound, which is really a bad thing for a receiver)

Add me to the dead at 3 years list

 

Was great when it worked.

Bought this in Nov 2011 and it stopped sending an HDMI signal to my TV in Dec 2014. Based on the wisdom I just gathered from other owners, I'm assuming the HDMI board is dead. I called my local repair shop and they said a new board ranges from $200-...

Toast after 3 years of light use

 

While it worked it did the job advertised

The airplay did not work well and it died with what turns out to be a very common defect on this unit - search the internet for error code UE22. Three years of very light use is pretty ridiculous for electronics these days. It was in a well ventilated...

No more Pioneer

 

Awesome sound.... when it works!

From day one this has been a finicky receiver. Ever so often having to reset to factory defaults and multiple attempts to do firmware update. I am very disappointed with Pioneer's lack of support on their receivers. Do a Google search on Pioneer UE22...
