Pioneer VSX-923 review

 

AVR manufacturers are obsessed with matching their TV counterparts and introducing a gamut of new models each year, despite bona fide audio developments being few and far between. As such, Pioneer's VSX-923 represents a revamp of the VSX-922 (itself a...

Menus look dated, Internet functionality is limited, Remote control is unintuitive

The look of the VSX-923 might be old-school AVR but who's complaining when the design is this attractive. The matt black finish and brushed metal styling certainly don't suggest a budget receiver and the build quality is excellent at this price point....
