Pioneer VSX-918V A/V Receiver

 

Budget receivers are like the cheap seats at Carnegie Hall. They don't provide best-case performance, but if you're living on a tight budget, you're just happy to be there. A budget A/V receiver can also form the basis of a starter system for the...

Pioneer has two receiver lines, the higher-end Elite and a value-oriented line without any special moniker. The Pioneer VSX-918V hails from the value line where it is second from the top. At $349, it won't strain anyone's budget. Although it doesn't...

The Pioneer VSX-918V is one very good-sounding budget receiver. No, it won't run power-pig speakers or decode Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio. But it will provide pleasingly clean power to speakers of appropriately high sensitivity. And it accepts...

Speaker out shorts out

 

Wish I did not buy this, has short out issues from the speaker out.

Cheap

I have a issue with this receiver, since I got it it would short out and turn itself off until you wiggle the speaker wires around. More investigation found that one channel is shorting out causing the unit to just simply turn on and off. NOT HAPPY...

Good with some issues though

 

cant figure out how to rename the LCD screen so it says HTPC instead of DVD. Newegg service is great as usual!!

works great, sound is awesome, auto sound setup works like a charm! does PCM over HDMI so can stream HD audio from PS3.

developed audible annoying hum after a day of use. if you press on the top it would stop... newegg was good about it and DOAed it for me though, getting a replacement. Doesnt decode TrueHD.

Good Value but cheaply constructed

 

There are better brands of receivers than Pioneer but they have always been among the best when it came to price versus performance. I am a little concerned however with this new line as they appear to be cheaply built. Hope the guts are more robust .

Good value for the price especially considering it does HDMI audio. Good sound and lots of inputs and features

Metal body covering is very thin and may dent with minimal pressure. Speaker Connectors on the back are smaller than earlier models and look and feel cheap

Excellent value reciever

 

I was looking at an offering from Yamaha, but HDMI pass through is just plain cheap. This unit does HDMI audio which is awesome for the price. Setup is easy using the MCAAC or whatever it is. I'm happy I got this unit, especially at this price point.

NIce looking unit, simple set up, processes HDMI audio, USB in front, I got a black one! :-)

Blue LEDs (I'm tired of seeing them), Unit arrived in good shape but the foam was busted - shipped in original box - Come on newegg... at least use a brown box for something this expensive
