Nice amp
Awesome amplifier, using it with Polk tsi 400& 100 and ps505 and its an amazing system.
Nice receiver for the money
Nice receiver for the money. It's probably overkill for many applications since many people have dropped cable these days. Ton of inputs but I only ever use 2. My setup consists of an optical out from the smart TV to pass through Dolby Digital/AC3/whatever signal, and an HDMI from my cable box. Bluetooth works consistently for listening to music. It supports quite a few audio codecs and can auto/manually switch based on the audio source.
Awesome receiver
Great entry level receiver. Has may high end features at an entry price.
Receiver doesn't automatically pass through HDR content
In order to setup your receiver to pass through HDR content and, for example, let you select 2160p RGB on your PS4 Pro allowing you to play games in 4K with HDR enabled, you need to hit the home button on your remote, scroll down to HDMI options, hit enter, and then manually change each INPUT to 4:4:4. This isn't automatically enabled which was annoying, but I'm glad I was able to figure it out with a helpful Pioneer customer service guy. We both discovered it together lol. I included picture directions for the menu options because I would've loved to find this earlier. Anyway it works well and sounds great. Good receiver for the price
Good receiver
I purchased this receiver to replace my 40 year old Pioneer receiver. The old one worked great but did not have the new inputs and out puts required of TV's, DVD players and cable boxes. The HDMI inputs are all labeled for the components you are using. It also has optical sound output if needed. You are able to switch back and forth between components easily. The sound is great.I am very happy with the unit and would recommend.
Better than the Sony STR-DH550
The first one I bought was Dead On Arrival. Nothing worse than getting a new toy and hooking it up only to discover that it doesn't work. Amazon processed the return with no problems. I took the chance and got another one because I understand that it happens and I like the brand. This was the only receiver I could find with HDMI 2.2 pass in the $200 price range. Installation was typical. I did have to do some reading on the different sound setting and played around till I found the best one for my taste. I have to say that the sound on this receiver is fantastic. It replaced a Sony STR-DH550 that was moved into the man cave. I find the sound coming from my surround speakers more crisp and detailed. I do not used a powered sub and the bass coming from the speakers sounded deeper as well. It was a clear improvement over the Sony. The Sony would power on and off automatically with the TV and this one does not.5 stars on performance minus one for the first receiver being DOA.
Great product!
This is our 2nd Pioneer. It is in another room of our home! Great product!
I like this receiver.
I like this receiver. I would describe the sound as bright and precise. The volume is plentiful. I've connected a usb drive of MP3s, a vcr & dvd via rca and video cable, and cable tv and pc via the hdmi. I don't have a problem moving between devices. The receiver is wonderful for watching the football game or dvds. I only use 2 of the listening modes. I use the plain stereo mode for Jdoramas and the Ext stereo mode for everything else. The other listening modes sound comical and I don't believe that I will use them. Just for fun I popped in a baroque cd and the sound with the Ext mode and a set of 5.1 speakers was splendid. The music sounded as if I were in a church listening to a concert. As for settings the only change I made was turning down the treble to -4 & the bass up to +4. I find the remote easy to use and well laid out. However, the keys are not backlit so while in the dark you have to remember where to push. If the unit lasts I would purchase another pioneer unit.
