I've had this reciever for about 5 months now and let me tell you its the real deal! My friend and I both purchased the same set of JBL basic theater speakers to go with our recievers, the difference being he got a sony reciever and I went with the pioneer. Even on the same speakers my reciever has a sharp, clear, full (and in no way tinny) sound where as his is muddy and inacurate (just in case you're wondering we are using the same speaker wire.) I dont think i've seen a reciever for this pri...

Being new to the home theater game,I really don't have anything to compare this product to. I bought it because it had all of the features I thought I might need,at a price I could afford,AND,it was a Pioneer,a name I have come to trust over the years. As far as what I've been able to discern,the unit is quite "user friendly". I had it up and running in an hour or two. One problem I ran into,was trying to connect all of those speaker wires using the "bare wire into the lug,and tighten" method!! ...

I bought this after upgrading to Polk surround speakers, Klipsch uprights, a Polk PSW10 10" sub, and a Yamaha NS-C225 center channel. This unit served as an upgrade from a Sony 5.1 50w per channel receiver. First things first, you may get a good sound out of the box, but with the Auto MCACC (this is customized with on screen guide) it shines bright. recognizing and customizing to the acoustics, component distance, and setup, this machine does more than some know. No HDMI, but honestly, if your l...

Fully satisfactory in every respect. A little complicated to hook up and set up as many different types of A-V equipment I have but I have been working with "hi-fi" equipment since they invented the name shortly after World War II. I ended up with features I didn't even expect and am totally pleased with this equipment.

Good deal
 
I use this receiver as my game room surround system and home audio. The audio is clean and lots of options that I'm not using, just because I only needed a simple but great sound system for the game room. For my theater I am using VSX-101TXV-K both of which are quite similar other than the VS-101TXV-K has HDMI, and THX certified and a few other things. But basically the sound pretty much sounds the same and both have the same power output. B&H is where I but all my major pieces of electronics be...

I would not buy this receiver. It sucks! Buy Sony or Yamaha. They sound a lot better than this one!

Very easy to set up, although, I would have preferred having the pull-down clips to insert the speaker wires instead of using banana clip plugs. My family and I are enjoying the unit very much, I highly recommend the purchase.

Excellent Receiver!
 
I added this receiver to my home theater system and what a difference it made for my exisisting speakers. The Pioneer VSX-817 is a very powerful receiver with lots of features and all of the connections I needed. Highly recommend for those looking to build a great home theater system.

More than I expected
 
This receiver is a great value. I was looking for a basic receiver to drive two speakers and a sub-woofer. I plan to upgrade my speaker system in the future. This system has all the bells and whistles I will ever need. It was relatively easy to set up, even though the instruction booklet is not user frendly. What I like best is the system can automatically detect the input source/speaker configuration/etc. and set up the appropriate autosurround settings. I used banana connectors to plug the spe...
