Bottom Line:   
Well, this is typical Pioneer BPC receiver and isn't worth going into description of how great it's mediocre features are. One note... on the back it says that its power consumption is 250W total. Advertised WPC in stereo is 100W ?!

As far as I can see it's a cost cutter unit and tricks like this with low power consumption and high WPC are found in high-end amps from older Yamaha and Carver units. From 250W consumed from the wall, only about 1/5 can be squeezed into the speaker output power, so, it's more of 50W WPC. I am just amazed how today's consumers are fooled by these inflated power output ads.

Other than that, the unit sounds very dull and lacking good dynamics. Probably OK to watch in a small room.

The amplifer part in my amp completely broke down after 4 years. Not to be expected from a brand as Pioneer.

Got this rig a few days ago second hand and I'm really enjoying it for the price. A few people have noticed that they are unable to put the volume up too high without the limiter kicking in - this maybe because the amps are designed for 8 - 16 Ohm speakers, if you are using 4 or 2 Ohm ones you might have problems. On the plus side, the system features built in overload protection and a cooling system. Once again this is a great entry level system if you only need composite video switching (standard def tv).

Bottom Line:   
Firstly, the guy who thought it was crap, crap, crap. Well it isn't okay, i bought this receiver as my first ever home cinema system, the price was really good, especially at the time becaus they were very pricey then. My dad had bought a kenwood receiver with a 500w shared output and it was good and so he put some towards this one. When we got it home i plugged it to his existing system and it was amazing, he couldn't believe the power that was coming out of it. I took it to my games room and now i have connnected it to some 'acoustic solutions' floor standing speakers, and a sony centre and surround set with a small but powerful enough subwoofer. It is easily good enough, try the receiver watching pearl harbour at the fights as this is in 'THX' it has got an amazing sound. I like it best on dts 'Standard' setting for the movies and dsp 'Dance' for music and it really is amazing. Never have the sound setting on 'loudness' though as it flattens out the sound, but have it on 'Midnight' setting as it makes the sound louder and also produces greater frequences on the basses and tweeter sounds!!!
Check It out.
Also i have now got in my sleeping bedroom a pioneer vsx 808 rds receiver which is great as i have got 4 B&W 601's, the B&W cc6 centre, and a yamaha yst sw 90 sub a great match!!! check it out, good with an X-Box.

I picked up this unit with 5 sat's and a pioneer 100 watt sub for $86.00 on Ebay. Got it home and it all work perfectly. I brought this unit for my 12 yearolds birthday and he could hook it up to his PS2. No problem setting it up, same remote for my VSX D309 in the bedroom. hope the 17 yearold don't get jealous
