I Like What I'm Hearing.
 
I got this receiver a few days ago to upgrade from my basic Pioneer XV-HTD540 receiver/DVD combo.I'm using the same speakers from before but I swear,this receiver has just breathed new life into them.They sound much more dynamic from the same movies I've been watching.I really wanted the HDMI and Optical audio connections and am really happy to have them here. This reciever has more options than anyone is likely ever going to use but my favorite so far is the included microphone atta...

Quite a good receiver for the money
 
I've owned 2 Pioneer receivers, and this one is really nice. It's got front-panel buttons to switch between each source (like a standard AV switchbox), TV out for the menus (so you don't have to do it all by looking at the tiny LED display), and a very nice universal learning remote with its own LCD screen. The 2 HDMI inputs are appreciated as well.My only problem with Pioneer receivers is that they make it hard to tell if you're in the surround mode you want to be - a bunch of confu...

good sound, poor remote
 
This receiver has very good sound quality. For this alone and its various sound settings I would give this product a 5 star rating. But there are a few things you must know to make an informed purchase. First if you input an hdmi source you must output the same. The same also goes for component input and output. It would have been nice to have the ability to input any source (component, composite or s-video and have it output to hdmi. Also hdmi is pass through so if you want sound from your TV f...

Pass-through audio
 
This is the most important thing you need to know about this receiver. If you are either hoping to have only one cable from your tv to your receiver -- or if you are planning on enjoying true 7.1 surround... this is not the receiver you want.However, if you don't care about having to run a separate cable for audio or are perfectly content with 5.1 surround -- this is a nice unit. The microphone configured my speaker set-up beautifully, and breathed new life into my system.

Pioneer VSX-917V-K Home Theater Receiver (Black)
 
I'm not happy with this reciever at all, Even with the HDMI cables you still have to hook up audio cables to get sound from each device you hook up. Also you have to have the reciever on anytime you have your tv on, you cannot watch and hear your TV while listening to say a CD at the same time.

Almost perfect
 
My old TEAC A/V amp started dying about a year ago, but once it was unable to switch between analog & digital sources I had to give in. This was recommended by someone online, and the price was right so I bought it. So far it's been great! It switches quickly and really simplified my setup. The only downside is that while it will upconvert anything to HD, it won't downconvert. In other words, while I can watch a composite input on the HDMI or component outputs, I can't watch HD sources on m...

great product, big defect
 
I got this receiever for christmas and I ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. Great sound, amazing features and clarity you wouldnt believe. The auto setup mic works well..you may have to adjust the equalizer to your liking afterwards though. The problem was when playing the system at high volume (not hurting the speakers) it would say OVERLOAD and shut down. I checked all the wires..none touching, tried different speakers, different wire, couldnt solve the problem. So I looked online seems some others have thi...

Incompatable
 
VSX-917V-K Real nice rec/amp but complex instructions. Not a "Plug in and use". I expected total compatablity with other Pioneer unts I had (CD Player PD-M406) and discovered not all functions on the CD player worked via remote (Dis Sel should index to next cd in six pack but did not). When I contacted Customer Service they responded right away ("Real Person") and reviewed with Engineering, Reported "Function fas not coded" in this unit). Interesting to note, my 1988 VSX 9300S remote did con...

Nice Piece
 
I'm very happy with this receiver, it has a lots ofpower and sounds great through my JBL'S. I'm not even usingthe surround sound capabilitys yet but just the stereomode sounds great with the CD's, DVD'S, and TV.It looks great too with the blue lights.

pioneer receiver 7.1
 
4 out 5 stars- a good reciever for the price and $200 dollars cheaper than best buy. To save much time and aggravation however- please remember that you won't get sound with just the HDMI wire connection- you must add an audio (optical/ etc..) wire hook up as well.Pioneer VSX-917V-K Home Theater Receiver (Black)
