Probably won't buy another Pioneer.

Great when it works

HDMI output failure at 2 yrs 11mo of ownership

AMAZING performer.


LOVE First one went missing in shipment, NEWEGG took care of the replacement asap. Couldn't be happier.

FULLY loaded. Features are rich, sound is rich. Connectivity is a breeze

I'd like to see one more HDMI out

Broken after a few months


I'ts great when it works, but when it doesnt its very aggrivating.

Unit is great - WHEN IT WORKS

I've written a previous review about the unit. since then, the unit has had intermittent video problems. When i turn the unit on, sometimes, more often then not, I am unable to get a video signal out of it unless i get up and physically unplug the...

Consumer review by:

great receiver


its big and heavy but that a good thing

this model is the same as the elite model with just a few audio connections missing and the blue light on the power button. The new model 1122k is cheaper but they stripped it of most hook ups. some complain about the remote but i have no problem using...

Amazing Product!! The sound and picture quality is top notch and regarding the standby pass through function, it works. Here’s what I did: I turned the anynet function or hdmi control function on my Samsung 55 LED , turned the hdmi control function on...

A challenge to max it out!


1 year warranty!

A million connections! but seriously, plenty of connections, easy setup, advanced features, great performance and great value for the price. If you own any apple products, this is a no brainer at this price. ARC, upconversion, 3D, THX certified. A good...

none so far

Best sub-$500 receiver out there.


Excellent sound with extremely simple instructions for those weary about setting up a home theatre. Price is awesome considering what you get. If an Apple fan, this has a lot of features for you. I personally use Android, but Pioneer has the control...

Less support for Android than Apple. Wish USB connection was on back rather than the front

Best bang for the buck...


This is powering 2 monitor 70's, a CS2 center, and 2 monitor 40's. I also have 2 rw-12d Klipsch subs hooked up. All purchased from Newegg.

Great features, power and looks. For $449 you will not find a better receiver. Compares well to the Onkyo 709 in terms of power but is much cheaper (although the Onkyo does come with a 2-year warranty)

none yet

rma'd the first, refund the second for the same problem. Newegg's service is second to none! Been a newegg's customer all this years, will definitely buy from newegg. Happy New Year!!!

good sound if it works

alive on arrival, dead after couple of uses. I was watching tron all of a sudden error some cable prob, lost the picture, then reset and unplug the unit, switched cables etc. Switch inputs to dvd, br etc still no sounds
