Pioneer VSX-D811S review


Pioneer VSX-D811S

Prodigious power; Dolby EX/DTS-ES 6.1-channel surround processing; compatible with Super Audio CD and DVD-Audio; component-video switching; A/B speaker outputs; AM/FM tuner; very high-quality digital converters.

No phono input or onscreen display.

Pioneer's midpriced receiver performs like an upmarket model.
