Pioneer is a leader in home theaters but this receiver is 5.1 surround . Front A&B speaker capable . Very disappointed PIONEER . 3D ready without full surround .
I've been a fan of Pioneer products (and some of my friends) since the 80's, and have never been disappointed with my purchases of their products.
Not a shill for corporate anyone. Most corporate leaders are in my opinion psychopaths. Lets face facts though. How many people, including myself have purchased Sony products and then experience the WTF factor???
My previous home theatre amplifier was a Pioneer xxxx that was 15 years old (still working). However, I upgraded to blu-ray this past Xmas, did my research and selected this amplifier for its technology upgrades and the additional power. The previous amplifier was 5.1 @ 75 watts/channel.
I use Klipsch Legend towers and C7 center with a 500 watt Energy sub. The previous amp needed an external fan to cool it down when taking the leash off.
Not with this amplifier. It just seems bottomless in capacity. I literally can play this system at sound pressure levels with incredible clarity and definition, that I keep looking at my front door expecting neighbors to complain.
Not to mention the walls and windows do vibrate at peaks also. This is only with the "volume" control at 50%.
There are many features in this box that I don't or won't need, but I doubt the majority of users will ever need to drill down to them. Those kind of people purchase audiophile equipment for thousands of dollars.
I purchased this amplifier for $256.00 new. For that kind of money, I would expect a right proper POS. The previous amp was almost $800.00 15 years ago.
Personally, I am blown away by this amazing technology every time I use it.
In all things good or bad, all humans have the right to think, and the right to choose.
I chose well.
My TV had only 2 HDMI inputs but the VSX 820-K added 4 solving my shortage instantly. The Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system was an unexpected surprise as it worked great for me. A lot of receiver for the money.
Awesome sound. World of difference between my old Sony and this really nice Pioneer. The HDMI channel switcher makes it so much easier for my Harmony remote to start an activity appropriately. The iPod/iPhone feature should also be more Android friendly. After all Android sales are on the rise while Apple's is plummeting.
Very nice receiver sound quality is great.This receiver works great with a BLU RAY player and a nice sub woofer worked great with my RF remote.
