  • Excellent Upgrade to My Surround Sound
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Patrick - February 8, 2020

    I had an older model Pioneer 5.1 receiver that finally started give me problems after years of use. I did months of research and decided to upgrade to this 7.2 receiver. It was on sale, but I’m very happy with my purchase. It has plenty of power for all 7 speakers (4 Sonance in ceiling speakers, Sony center channel & a pair of book shelf) and 2 (Polk 10”) subs. Easy to setup and my Samsung 65” 4K tv connected with no problems. The only issue I have with this receiver is that it doesn’t have a network port for an internet connection. Not a show stopper, I can still use my phone for satellite radio.

  • Beautiful Sounds fill the entire room
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Ohiogirl - July 6, 2019

    I love this new AV unit. It is replacing a Panasonic 5.2 AV. It really blew that out of the water as soon as it was hooked up. Sounds from my side speakers brought the scene alive like never before. There is so much technology inside this box that it'll take a little while to learn everything, but it has been amazing listening to the things I've been missing in the past. The sound is so rich and full. It truely is a wonderful AV Unit. The HEOS connection is another major plus. I currently do not have HEOS speakers throughout the house, but I can certainly see that happening in the future.

  • Great product for the price!
    Verified BuyerReviewed by BenS - June 7, 2019

    I’ve had many receivers over the years, most of them Pioneer but also Denon and Onkyo and this really is a great value. The features and power output alone could demand a higher price. I gave it four stars instead of five because of one flaw. For some reason every time I switch back to Fios the resolution resets to480p instead of 1080p which I had it set on. This did not happen with my previous receivers, it’s a minor flaw but annoying. Other than that the sound quality is excellent and user interface is very intuitive. I am very happy with this receiver.
