EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTING

 

I will NOT buy another pioneer electronics product again. I will NOT recommend this product to any body.

Looks nice.

Lack of power. You have to turn the volume all the way up to 70% to get it loud enough for theater experience. After only SIX months of intermittent use, the HDMI board failed for no apparent reason. Pioneer will NOT pay shipping charges to return the...

good receiver for the price

 

This receive destroys the sony I had before. The surround sound is much better and very easy to setup. I caught this on sale for $250. Well worth it at that price.

Sounds great compared to my old receiver. Has plenty of HMDI ports. Surround sound was easy to setup.

none, I researched quite a bit before buying. This was onsale at the price point I was willing to spend.

Garbage

 

Make a great boat anchor if you need one!

Nice when it worked

As stated in other reviews, if you get a year or two out of these VSX receivers good luck. Waste of money. I loved mine, but it died so quickly it left a sour taste in my mouth to ever by another Pioneer product. My unit made it about a week past the...

Goon number of HDMI inputs - no audio outputs

 

I've been using Pioneer receivers for years without any problems and was looking for a 4K receiver with an MHL input - this fit the bill although it has extremely poor connectivity for analog sources - in addition to the 6 HDMI inputs, you only get 3...

Good number of HDMI inputs - 1 of which is MHL, which allows me to use my old Roku 3400 stick. It has 4K capability and good specs for an inexpensive receiver - especially if you can get it on sale.

This is not meant to be an audio receiver for analog sources - I cannot connect my cassette deck, reel-to-reel tape deck, or DVD recorder if I want to record something as there are no audio outputs, nor can I connect my turntable as there are no inputs...

not reliable

 

The Pioneer VSX line, including the VSX5**, VSX8**, and VSX10** series all seem to have a fault that causes them to die within a couple of years. This happened to mine in Jan 2015 after 2 years of light use. It is now officially dead and I will never...

When it works, it works great.
