Bottom Line:   
What I can say, is a good amplifier for video use, very good sound for videos, a lot of functions very useful, a lot off people thing this amp is not so good, but I think the problem is, you need to use the correct speaker with this amp, and, set correctly the level in each channel in the config (not so easy to config this amp)...

Que puedo decir es un buen amplificador para aplicaciones de video, incluye muchas funciones, muchos pienzan q no es un buen amplificador, pero pienso q es cuestion de usar el parlante correcto y configurar correctamente los setings de nivel en el amplificador (cosa q no es muy facil de hacer)...

My system config:
Pioneer VSX D608
Pioneer CS 722a Speaker (1981) x 2 (Main)
Pioneer CS 600 Speaker x 2 (Surr)
Center channel custom made speaker

Bottom Line:   
Very good unit. Just replaced it with Harman Kardon AVR 520 5x75W. There is a difference, but not to such an extend one may think. Mostly in the sound clarity. 608 stands very well and it is worth owning it. (See my old review December 27, 1999)

Bottom Line:   
I use this system with a Panasonic Progressive scan dvd player, and a rca hdtv receiver. Watching movies on this system is really a blast. I don't have the best speakers ~$1000 total, but the system does provide plenty of power.

If you have decent speakers and need a low price receiver that does everything, this is a good one for you.

Bottom Line:   
WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY. I WANTED MORE BASS AND MORE SOUND!! I CURRENTLY HAVE A CAMBRIDGE ENSEMBLE IV SURROUND SYSTEM. SO, I STARTED READING REVIEWS ON THE PIONEER VSX/D608. I DECIDED IT MIGHT BE THE RECIEVER. JUST WENT OUT AND BOUGHT A KENWOOD VR-6050. THE SOUND WAS GREAT!! IT DID IMPROVE ALOT!! MORE BASS AND SOUND. SO, I DECIDED TO GIVE THE PIONEER TO MY SON(WHO DOESNT LIVE WITH ME) HE HAD A LARGE SET OF SONY FLOORSPEAKERS. I WAS AMAZED!!! THE PIONEER WAS REALLY PUMPING THESE SPEAKERS. I GUESS A NICE SET OF FLOOR SPEAKERS WOULD HAVE DONE THE JOB!!!
