1 out of 5 eggsFooled me once! .521

Pros: Worked fine while.

Cons: Features of the older version, this model replaces at this same price point, slowly started to disappear. First sound from optical cable stopped working. Replaced the cable, still no joy. Next tuner functions failed, finally nothing. From reading reviews of all pioneer A/V receivers sudden death is fairly common , including this model.

Other Thoughts: buy at your own risk, price is wrong, if it only lasts a year

5 out of 5 eggsVSX-524

Pros: This receiver is a great buy for the price, the sound is excellent and easily competes with other brands up to 500 dollars or more. It is your basic receiver with 4 HDMI inputs and functions very well as such. If your looking for something to integrate your entertainment center without breaking your bank and providing excellent sound quality, this is it.

Cons: Manual that came with mine was outdated had to go online to get new manual from pioneer... I would have rather it just come with a note that said go online for manual. You NEED to follow the instructions on the online manual not the one in the box it is missing crucial steps to make the unit work fluidly.

Other Thoughts: I live in an apartment and can't really blast this thing, but for 2pm in the afternoon with my downstairs neighbors giving the thumbs up it can seriously shake the whole apartment lol... and still sounds great. Don't cheap out on speakers or wire... works amazingly.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Start-Bad Ending

Pros: Nice features, good clean sound (at first).

Cons: SAT/CBL input failed within a few hours. Tried switching cables and inputs, only conclusion was that SAT/CBL input had dead sound. Tuner seemed weak.

Other Thoughts: It's no small job rewiring a closed entertainment center, and it isn't cheap shipping this thing back. I'll be ordering a different brand.
