I am an audio person, I build speakers as a hobby for at least 5years. I thought the best sound is from the 2 channel stereo receiver amp, but after listening to an older Pioneer Elite hooked up to my reference speaker I was sold on the Elite hometheater receiver.This is the least expensive new receiver (could not afford Elite series but Pioneer nonthless). I use it mainly hooked up to my Oppo 980H DVD player and use it mainly as a CD player. The sound is surprising clean and bass and trouble...

I recently purchased this product to add to my bedroom home theater setup. The setup was great- it asks you for info and you respond. Done! I noticed a cooling fan in the vents and was concerned with the noise. I ran it hard and even with the volume off, no noise- no problem. The "compressed audio enhancer" worked great. My mp3 player definitely sounded better.I use pro studio monitors and they can be a strange load to the amp. This amp has a way to adjust the output impedance to suit the ...

As a long time audiophile (since the 60's), I've gotten rather set in my ways. On the other hand, I've usually been an early adopter of new technology. This receiver was a logical step in updating my now all-digital system (LCD TV, multimedia hard drive, DVD/CD player, DVR, etc.). The VSX-518 has many new, flexible options compared to my older Sony A/V receiver. The assignable digital audio and component video inputs are very nice. The unit is controllable with my Logitech programmable universal...

I JUST GOT THIS RECEIVER TO REPLACE MY OLD ONE. I DID HAVE A PROBLEM WITH UPS DELIVERING THE ITEM TO ME, BUT THAT WAS HANDLED VERY NICELY BY AMAZON. BACK TO THE ITEM. I HAD NO TROUBLE WITH HOOKING THE SYSTEM UP. I HOOKED IT UP TO MY DISH NETWORK RECEIVER, DVD, PLAY STATION, AND TV OF COURSE. THE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS WERE EASY TO FOLLOW.I WAS HAPPY WITH THE COST OF THE RECEIVER, BEING THAT I COMPARED IT TO OTHER STORES, AND AMAZON PRICE WAS THE BEST. NOW THE SOUND FROM THE RECEIVER IS VERY C...

This receiver was comparatively very cheap. It has plenty of power and it sounds clean and undistorted even at high volume. It has all the needed setup options. It also has the capability of sending a full bass signal to my powered sub without stinting on the bass output to my 4 (over the top) full range speakers. You might think every receiver would do that properly. You would be wrong.

I guess it's a pretty nice tuner/amp for the money, but it is not very intuitive to use. Drilling down through several layers of menus just to do simple functions is a bore and requires me to keep the owners manual at my fingertips at all times. How long will it be before one of the grandkids misplaces it or tears it up? Guess I'd better make a copy. Also, it lacks the bass punch of the old, old Sony system it is replacing. That's somewhat disappointing. I was expecting better performance from a...

I wanted to update my 14yr old 200 Watt Pioneer receiver with another Pioneer. I saw this one on sale and like the demo at Circuit City. I am very pleased with the sound, but I guess it has to do with the speakers as well. Still it sounds great and especially for the price I paid for it. I am using it with Sony SS-B3000 Bookshelf Speakers with 8" Woofer and a Sony SA-W3000 Performance Line 12" 180-Watt Subwoofer.

I love music, but I have never been the type to need the ultimate sound. This unit replaced a Kenwood that I had for about 20 years and is a great improvement. I don't have the ability to have surround sound, but I did have an extra speaker, a KLM that I wired up in the center. The radio receiver is better than I had before and there is a lott more wattage in this set. Sounds great and has coverage of sound from the bass to the treble. Very nice for the average person. The only gripe I have...

We bought this receiver because we wanted a way for my husband (who has severe hearing loss)to listen to the stereo output from our tv through headphones, while I listened to it from speakers on the wall. The headphones jack receptical is wired to cut out speaker output when headphones are plugged in, thus totally nullifying the reason for our buying the receiver.Other than that, the receiver has good, quality sound, both from AM/FM Stereo and from TV stereo amplification, and can be regulated b...
