Pioneer SP-PK52FS 5.1 Speaker System and VSX-822-K A/V Receiver

 

Pioneer SP-PK52FS 5.1 Speaker Package and VSX-822-K A/V Receiver

Both the VSX-822-K A/V receiver and the SP-PK52FS 5.1 speaker package are each excellent bargains in their own right. Together, this is the home theater starter kit to beat. The receiver is mostly no-frills, but does all the essentials quite well, and...

Pioneer VSX-822-K AV Receiver Review

 

The heart of all home-entertainment systems is the AV receiver and if you mess that up, you're sure to get frustrated once you hit 'Play'. This is why you should always take time in figuring out just want you want from your AV receiver, be it simple...

REMOTE CONTROL I am not a big fan of this controller. It has far too many little buttons spread all across the surface of it and takes a long time getting used to it. Its range is reasonable and I didn’t have too much of a problem with it. I guess if...

Worked OK until failing TWICE

 

I ordered this unit on 7/1/2012 and it work well for a little while. In the summer of 2014, two years later, it stopped working. When you would turn it on it would stay on for a second and then immediately turn back off. So, I went to an authorized...

Buy another reciever.

 

While it does suppose AV features and HDMI switching, the interface is CLUNKY. The input switching is hit or miss, and sometimes does not even send signals to the tv. Today it seems the HDMI ports have just completely died. I tried everything. I...

Looks pretty, and has AV capabilities.

First one was defective, replacement works fine

 

Not very impressed with pioneer's refurbishing abilities. Got lucky and second receiver works well enough. Not sure how so many items can be missing from the box without being noticed by pioneer. Expected better from pioneer.

Receiver sounds pretty good for the price, a bit better than my 10 year old 6.1 sony receiver. HDMI switching, CEC and pass-thru all working properly. Network feature works well enough. Extended stereo mode plays 2ch stereo from all speakers and subwoofer

In the manual it states the receiver can play FLAC over network but it is very choppy when I try it. First receiver had HDMI and network problems. Both receivers were missing items from the box. The first one was missing the microphone and ipod cable,...

Great performance but terrible connection and delay

 

I gave it a 3 star rating because when it works right it looks good. However I have a unique setup and now I am trying to sell this 1 because it simply doesn't fit my needs. The wife and I are in agreement that we need a 4K receiver just in case.. :)

Great audio, and video quality Lots of different ways to configure your home video.

Huge Lag ! Loses signal all the time. When you turn it on it can take up to 30 seconds to get it working right. Once I have my Verizon box on and change it to an HDMI channel it losses the signal.
