Best of mid range receivers
 
I was replacing a 13 year old Denon receiver that was terrific. I only upgraded for the newer sound fields and to get HDMI connections and future proof for 4K UHD. I ended up trying 4 different receivers, before settling on the Pioneer elite sc-91. I tried Onkyo, Denon and a lower end Pioneer elite VSX model. This receiver blew them all away as a whole. I liked the Denon avr-x4100w, but wasn't HDMI 2.2, so decided I better future proof, so I can get at least 10 years out of this receiver. The lo...

Great Receiver for music - I use it as 2.1
 
This receiver has pros and cons. I had lots of frustrations with all the problems described by others related to buggy software and inability to hook up different things like the bluetooth interface or buggy AirPlay. However, what saved the day for me was that the Class D3 amplifiers, the Sabre Premier DAC and the Bi-Amp mode are all that I need to feed a couple of Tannoy XT6 which in Bi-Amp mode sound beautiful. The quality of sound is remarkable and I am using for comparison my Linn DS-I. In ...

Sounds Great, Wi-Fi Frustrating
 
I'm enjoying the beautiful sound emanating from my SC-91. The large room is filled with powerful sounds from the surround sound speakers along with deep and rich vibrations from the subwoofer. Initial setup was relatively easy for a stereo non-techy. I am not interested in all the complicated bells and whistles and ignored most settings that were confusing to me or didn't interest me. I have another Pioneer receiver and the gadget I enjoy most is the iPhone App iControlAV. To sit o...

Pioneer SC-91
 
Settled on the SC-91 after returning a different brand which would randomly degrade the video signal. No video issues with this one and enjoy the setup flexibility. Remote app is also an improvement over the previous brand.

Buggy
 
This AVR checks all the right boxes with a Sabre DAC, lots of HDMI inputs, HDMI passthru, deep color, USB input, built-in wifi and bluetooth all for a reasonable price. Unfortunately there are too many things wrong that ruin this potentially great receiver. I still don't think I've heard the best of my speakers because I can't get this receiver to give me any sort of impact when watching movies or dynamic music. The firmware is very buggy. At that, getting the latest firmware...

Stay away from this one.
 
I recently purchased this receiver after returning two Onkyo 8 series receivers. I've had this receiver around three weeks now. I am becoming more frustrated by the day with it. First of all it does not recognize apple tv, or my playstation even though i've tried two brand new hdmi cables to no avail. It does a poor job controlling my Sony 4K TV and Blue Ray player plus ARC does not function correctly. I was able to finally program my remote controls, however that task was quite a chore....

Not what I expected
 
I am on my third receiver trying to find one that will do justice to my 7000.00 Martin Logan system I bought from Best Buy. The marantz receiver I had would turn on In the middle the night and scare the living crud out of my wife and I and I would have to "clear" my house to make sure some me hadn't broken in each time. It would also for no obvious reason not pass the blu Ray signal and you would be forced to hook up another screen to the other hdmi output just to access the onscreen display. Wh...

Simply Amazing!!
 
It came to basically two for me as it was time to upgrade from my VSX1123k Pioneer receiver.Looked at the Elite series and what Marantz had to offer.Considered the VSX 45 and VSX 90 and the Marantz 1506 and 1606 units.But I stumbled onto an awesome deal on the SC 91 with the D3 amplifierThis was a dream come true always wanted an Elite or Marantz but could not afford one years past. I only paid $679.99 for what was an open box item that was listed as being in excellent condition, the only thing ...

Increased Video Quality and Sound
 
During the research for a Home Theater System, I came across this unit. It has the Upscaling Quality to give you crisp and clean fluidity of your picture weather it is Movie or Live action such as sports. I Have DIRECTV and I use to have it go straight to the TV. You REALLY see a dramatic Difference in the Quality. I am Using the Definitive Technology PC600s that have a really great sound. The Dolby-Atmos Feature is really phenomenal as well. The App for your Phone or tablet is great as well, as...

Great receiver also for music
 
So, a couple of disclaimers: (1) I think digital amps have come a long way. (2) Good equipment does music and HT.
