For $299, this receiver rocks
 
For the money, this is a great receiver. I originally bought a Yamaha RX-V367 and returned it in exchange for this Pioneer. The $70 difference was money well spent. Outside of the Elite line, I'd have never thought a Pioneer would sound so much better than a Yamaha. It has features like digital audio decoding and can power a 2nd set of front speakers. The Yamaha would do neither. It's also very easy set up and use. I would not recommend it for a home theater since it doesn't have features like a...

Good reciever for the money
 
I'm writing this review from the standpoint that I have a Pioneer 1019 and an Pioneer Elite VSX-30. I picked this reciever up as a gift for my buddy (plumer) who installed a really nice sink for me. The Pioneer reciever's are the best for sound quality. They do an excellent job decoding whatever you throw at them. Pioneer has a smooth, clear and pleasing sound. This reciever has alot of functions at this price point where other brands are missing. This reviever has auto speaker set up (auto MCAC...

Very good receiver for the price
 
I have just completed an exhaustive search to replace my Panasonic SA-XR57 that was in my bedroom. I tried out two Onkyo TX-SR308 5.1-Channel Home Theater Receivers (both took way too long displaying anything on my TV via HDMI and could not do anything with the digital optical audio coming out of my satellite box) and a Sony STR-DN1000 7.1-Channel Audio Video Receiver (which was better with the HDMI connection to the TV although not altogether satisfactorily so and worked well with the optical ...

Outstanding receiver.......for awhile.
 
After trying a Denon, and two Yamaha's, I finally hit gold with the Pioneer VSX-820.This is a superb receiver in all regards. It produces clear crisp sound in all modes.There are no lip synch issues at all when linked to my HDTV. I had terrible lip synch problems with the Denon. It has all the features I need and more and has an excellent remote that is both intuitive and comprehensive. I use my receiver for CD's, FM radio and my Samsung HDTV. I use DishNetwork for my TV program...

Nice sound for the price, but silly mistakes
 
I picked this up yesterday to use as the pass through for my new 3d tv & the sound is great, nice & powerful for the rumblings in The Hurt Locker but also crisp enough to hear the birds tweeting in the background at the US Open Sadly it is let down by a really stupid design flaw. The unit is 3D pass through capable, so is obviously aimed at folks who are either early adopters or at the very least will have it connected to a HDTV. However if your cable out to your telly is HDMI it does no...

Great receiver with an annoying shortcoming
 
I picked this up at a local retailer. Looks good and the sound is pretty good. Didn't seem much better or worse than my 10 year old Denon receiver it replaced (but that's not a bad thing). Video over HDMI looks good.Setup is pretty usual for receivers, you will not understand many features and setup options unless you bother reading the instructions.Few shortcomings with one that is very annoying:1. The cover of the front USB and video/audio ports is not conne...

iPod plug-in, Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, HDMI = :)
 
This is seriously a fantastic entry level A/V receiver... ease of use is high for even those novice users and the capability to connect so many different types of devices makes this a solid performer for the price-range. In fact I compaed this to my older Onkyo THX ($1,800) receiver from years back and think this is far superior! What's great about it: iPod, Sirius/XM, HDMI - Easy to Setup What's not so great: none to my knowledge I would recommend this to a friend!

Great mid-luxury receiver
 
This receiver is not really for the novice user most people should stick with one of those 5 in one systems. You have to READ the manual. There are so many settings to get the sound of your liking that it would be an injustice not to do so. I love the “Sound Retriever” feature; I was able to recover some of the sound you lose from one of those terrible Comcast box. It took me about two days to finally configure the sound to my liking. This is a great purchase for those that want a little taste o...

Great Receiver
 
Basically I upgraded to this receiver from the 520 model. I was looking for a receiver that had an A/B channel to power my outdoor speakers. This is the perfect receiver for that. I can switch between A which is my surround in my living room. It can switch to B which is the Insignia NS-E2111 speakers outside over my deck. It can also switch to play A and B at the same time. The website says that it does not have A/B switching, but it does. This unit IS multiroom capable. What's great about it:...

Pioneer is the only Receiver to Buy !!!
 
This is my second Pioneer receiver as I had my other one for about 7 years and wanted to upgrade my old unit that worked perfectly fine with HDMI switching so that I could avoid using component video. Needless to say the purchase was stellar......this receiver does it all and I mean all !!!! It has features galore but I love the clean audio that you receive on any selection.....switching is a breeze and my blu-ray never looked so good.Just compare any other brand in it's price range to say...
