Difficult setup

 

This could be a really good product if it had a more intuitive setup. However, it is so hard to navigate and find the options for configuration and use them that I had to deduct two eggs for it.

Looks sharp and produces good sound. Plenty of HDMI, TOS, and RCA connectors. I like the banana connectors for the speaker wires. Many low cost receivers don't have them.

The setup is clumsy at best. Not intuitive. You need the downloadable online manual to figure out what you're doing. The Basic documentation that comes with it is wholly inadequate. Unusual volume indication, instead of giving a percent of power being...

Great AVR for the price with all the bell and whistles.

 

- Great sound. I am using this AVR with Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers and I am enjoying the TV/movies/music again. - I can play Spotify, Pandora inside the AVR - I can stream the music via Airplay and its amazing - iPhone/Android remote control is...

- The user manual that comes with the device is not very helpful. - Setting up wireless is tricky if you have mac filtering enables on your network but i managed to get the mac address from the AVR in network settings. - You have to use remote to jump...

Good but not great

 

I didn't just pull it out of the box and have it blow my mind. It took me several days (granted, maybe only 15 minutes each day) of thinking about things and testing to get the receiver to a point where I'm satisfied with it. I'm using two Polk Monitor...

Sounds awesome. Fairly easy to set up.

-MCACC switched my front speakers from "small" to "large" which effectively meant it disabled LFE to my subwoofer. I forced it back to small resolving that issue. -My only other complaint is that the receiver is incapable of playing videos off the...

still need to learn about it

 

Easy firmware update using computer to get receiver online, Pandora interface ok, Spotify needs paying account. It upconverts to 4k, not just passthrough, so some future-proofing there. Ended up using optical along with the hdmi s after trying...

So sparkling clear it brought tears, and the AV5 Pioneer app on tablet makes any sound tweaks easy to do, even gives distance to each speaker from user's seat (I did microphone calibration first), can control inputs, volume, eq. etc. ... dialogue...

Not really cons, but wish it was less height, cause slimlines are 200 more and may have less features than this unit. To rate Pandora songs TV screen overlay needed, thumbs not in the AV5 app or via remote to unit's small front display, (but its nice...
