Pioneer VSX-823-K

 

The pitch for Pioneer's VSX-823-K ($400 street price) is straightforward: six HDMI inputs, built-in AirPlay, and not much else. That's more HDMI connectivity than the similarly AirPlay-equipped Denon AVR-E300 ($400) offers, and AirPlay gives it an edge...

Consumer review by:

"Great Receiver!"

 

Ok so I had a REALLY old Sony receiver that I decided to replace because it was from the mid 90's and wasn't 5.1, Dolby Digital or have any HDMI hookups. So I walked into Best Buy and found this baby at 25% off 300.00 instead of 400.00!!!

Great price, lots of features and hookups

No paper user manual (on a cd rom), speaker wires were hard to hookup
