Stylish design ; smooth to operate ; focused, precise, agile sound ; iPod functionality

Pioneer VSX-919AH Home Theater Receiver Review


Fast and easy-to-use auto calibration feature (MCACC), Excellent iPod/iPhone integration, Two zones for the price of one!, Full HDMI video and audio support with on-board decoding of DTS-HD, Dolby TrueHD and multi-channel PCM, Affordable, Fast and...

The VSX-919AH is an excellent package at $400 MSRP (less if you shop around), though it does have some drawbacks. HDMI switching was not perfect - you can overcome this by hooking up your sources directly to the display, but then there goes the...

Pioneer VSX-919 & VSX-1019 Home Theatre Receivers


No longer does surround sound always mean the lossy compression of Dolby Digital or DTS. No longer is it limited to the relatively sparse offerings on DVD-Audio or SACD. The Blu-ray format delivers the highest of high-fidelity sound at ocean-deep bit...

Great system!


After 4 years of service, the HDMI Out died, and I haven't been able to find a part number to replace it. The rest of the system works fine, but I can't use it for any sort of video watching anymore.

The quality of this system is fantastic. The sound output after years of service is still great, and the setup feature with the multi-directional mic is awesome

HDMI switching is wonky, works most of the time, but sometimes you have to switch between inputs to get it to click to the right one

very very good


For thoses who are looking for the receiver to say Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio receivers won't say it because it decodes it as direct sound (pcm direct,pure direct or analog direct) use the stream direct option on this receiver. For PS3 users...

This thing does it all

It said it comes with HDMI 1080p Video Repeater which i did not come with & one of my 3 component plugins is bad but who cares all my hdmi's work just fine and that's what counts

Its so easy


Item is used with a Toshiba 46 Regza and Xbox360. Take 5 energy speakers. Weight does not equal high quality electronic components. It does not mean the unit has a good power supply. Just because your caps are big, does not mean they are necessary....

Easiest setup ever. Plug the speakers in, plug the mic in, and auto tune

The pioneer HDMI link is not so hot. If the receiver is on, and then the TV is turned on, the receiver will shut off. Same issue with an Xbox360 also causing the receiver to shut off ; Even better is watching cable with TV and receiver on (obviously),...

Great affordable upgrade


Other owners and I have/had encountered an annoying issue with this receiver and Logitech Harmony universal remotes. After powering the devices with the remote, and the receiver goes to the right source (e.g. HDMI1). But then, the receiver would...

Excellent upgrade from a Logitech Z-5500. Well balanced and clean sound. The mic setup process was impressive, it feels like my surround sound system was optimally configured for my living room. I can finally hear movie dialogue clearly from my center...

Nothing I can really nitpick. It performs exactly how I want and expect it to, and at times it exceeds ; My only complaint is that the Logitech Z-5500 sub woofer isn't compatible with this receiver. But that's not Pioneer's fault, Logitech made it that...

Product Specifications

Take advantage of the internal decoding of advanced HD audio formats to truly enjoy a full HD viewing experience. The VSX-919AH AV receiver can convert analog video signals to HDMI. And with an HDMI repeater (3 in/1 out), a single HDMI cable is all you need to transfer both video and audio digitally to the receiver. It features an iPod digital USB connection that provides direct plug-and-play enjoyment of all tracks stored on your iPod or iPhone, without the need for a docking station. When connected to a Blu-ray player via HDMI, the VSX-919AH uses a proprietary PQLS technology for a jitterless transmission, resulting in high-quality sound. Navigation becomes easy with the receiver's intuitive and fresh looking GUI (Graphical User Interface).
