good entry level receiver
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) I you need a basic 5.1 channels receiver, this receiver is a good option for the price paid. It has a lot of options for an entry level unit. If you want to get the max out of this receiver, you will need to change a lot of the default settings. It can be challenging for someone with no technicall skills, or someone who doesn't read the instructions first. the only negative thing I can think ab...

An inpensive receiver
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) I bought this from Bestbuy for $109 plus tax. This is a very capable receiver for 5:1 channel systems. The speaker setup is quite easy. The FM station setup takes a while to figure out, but who cares about indoor FM music anyway. The sound is good. The electronics should be the same as those cost three three times more. As an electrical engineer, I think to spend more than $200 for a receiver...

Top shelf receiver
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) Has all the "stuff" you need or want to hook up to your home theater. I set it up to my new Toshiba REGZA HDTV and have unbelievable sound for movies and cable shows. Even makes the local news anchors sound good. Takes some time to get familiar with remote and other operational i...

A good value priced receiver
 
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) The Pioneer VSX-517 was purchased as a gift for my parents, who had recently bought a new 50" hi-def plasma TV. It was the perfect choice for them, since they are somewhat frugal, but yet wanted surround sound to go with their new display. The Pioneer VSX-517 was the perfect soluti...

Great economical reciever
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) I think this reciever is great! I bought this receiver at Best Buy a couple weeks ago and have been very impressed with its performance. The receiver is surprisingly easy to use and has many features to increase sound quality. The only downfall about this receiver is that it doesn't have any HDMI hookups in it. However you can't really expect it to for only 180 bucks. Other than that I thi...

Very good entry level receiver
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) I bought this from Bestbuy during thanksgiving sale for $109. For that price, this is the only receiver with 100watt/channel & 5.1 output . Note that the optical input connector on this receiver works perfectly with toslink cable. I paired this receiver with klipsch F-3 and 10" klipsch sub-woofer. The inputs are from my desktop(4 channels, front and surround) and macbook(optical input). I am h...

Great Quality and Easy Set - Up
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) This is a great receiver and was very easy to set up. The quick set up walks you through the process asking you questions in order to get the best sound possible. Took less then 3 minutes. It also has everything I was looking for in a receiver. Bought it to go with JBL Venue speakers and the combination of the two I would recommend to anyone.

Defective right out of the box
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-517-K Home Theater Receiver (Black) (Electronics) It's pretty frustrating when you go through the complicated process of connecting up a home theater receiver and then find that it doesn't work. The right front channel was weak and distorted. This was the first Pioneer product I've bought so I can't say how common it is but as the saying goes, you only get one chance to make a first impression.
