Performance close to my Rotel-1065!
 
After owning a 1997 Pioneer Elite Series Receiver for 10 years now, I thought it was time for an upgrade. I'm Extremely Picky when it comes to audio as I've been a member of the Audio Engineering Society for over 30 years, own and operate a 30 track recording studio with very high end audiophile gear ( Crown Reference Power Amps And Tannoy DMT-15 Monitors, etc) and perform regularly as a Jazz Fusion & Rock Bassist. We additonally have a high end double walled Home Theater with Phil...

Solid Performance - Excellent Price - Free Shipping
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) To start off with, as an Alaska resident the free shipping was a deal maker for me. That said, I've had no problems with the receiver itself, save for a small scratch on the faceplate. Super-Saver has its detriments I suppose.Performance wise, the receiver is excellent for my setup. I haven't had the opportunity to crank the volume due to the next door neighbors, but 5.1 is ...

Great Value
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) I bought this Audio/Video receiver as a replacement for a another brands at one time top of the line model that just suddenly failed on me. Having only limited funds this time around, this receiver was the best value that had all the features I wanted and needed and then some. Because of the price I had some concerns about overall quality before receiving it. Now that I have put it to u...

An awesome reciever.
 
Don't listen to that guy in the other thread, this reciever is definetely worth the extra money. Just having MCACC alone is worth it, saving hours of set up time by calibrating the speaker size, distance, delay, eq settings among other things. Think of it as having a bose system but for 1/5 the price. Plus you've got an on screen display which is immensly helpful because it is a lot easier to see on your tv and you can guage where you are in the myarid of features that it has. It's also got ...

Great BANG FOR THE BUCK!!
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) I've had this unit for a couple of weeks now and I find it to be very impressive. Great bang for the buck. Set up, if you wish to use some of the great features, can be a little tricky. The manual could use some help (small print on rather low quality newsprint paper). It would have been nice if the selections would be displayed on the TV screen (e.g. volume) instead of having to lo...

Not THE best deal
 
I had the 516, it's not hard (time consuming rather) to set up initially maybe 15 minutes max, besides once the main parameters are set, they are set (and there is not that many of them). I found most of them pretty much useless except for number of speakers as you need that for 3.0+. The standard and advanced surround is what I played with the most on the 516. I went to the pioneer web site and compared the two (the 816 and 516). Aside from more inputs/outputs, a listening mic for a...

After 2 Years - the Sound is cutting out intermittantly like everyone elses reviews.
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) This was trouble free for 2 years, now the Sound is cutting out of the Center Channel like so many have reported. Double checked all the wiring - subbed in a different center channel, it cuts out intermittantly still.Many have noted that they had to crank the volume or turn it off/on to fix. I have found that if you simply turn off the "MCACC Auto Sound" and switch it back...

Good unit for surround sound
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) I like this unit better than my Onkyo for use as my surround sound system, great sound and video quality. The only thing it is lacking is access between pre amp and pwr amp to power my Bose 901's with the equilizer. Its a great deal at Amazon's price. I'm tempted to buy another one with this sale.

Good Sounds
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-816-K 7.1-channel XM-Ready A/V Receiver, Black (Electronics) This was fairly tedious to set up, but the sound quality is great. I don't use the XM rsdio, PBS in the car is enough radio for me. The mic that balances the sound for the room works well; for some reasom I had trouble getting the unit to talk to my TV for on-scren help. The reomote has more options than I can remember to set. For the money this is a really good unit; I replaced a So...
