Not that long ago, all you needed was a stereo receiver/amplifier with enough inputs and you could handle your TV, your stereo, your CD player, your radio, and maybe, some vinyl records. Now we have digital high definition video, various digital sound sources, and still have the “traditional” ones, too. Our options just got a lot more complicated.

Pioneer aims to help simplify things again. Not just a radio receiver with thirty AM/FM presets, not just a stereo amplifier for your CD player, this unit is also a sophisticated switching center for most of your audio and video needs. 2 HDMI 1080p inputs, 3 component video inputs and 4 AV inputs, iPod compatible through a USB port, three digital audio inputs (one coaxial and two optical), and an analog multi-channel input (up to six inputs), as well as a remote control that can not only control the receiver, but many of the components hooked up to it.

Get your cables and your multi-media life untangled. Check this out.

5 out of 5 eggsknow what you want

Pros: This is just to fix something from someone being an idiot. Video Switching when talking about HDMI is the act of switching between one or two sources, not upgrading or changing a signal to and from the HDMI signal, that would be a converter not a switch. You shouldn't give bad marks to a product because you are an idiot and don't do enough research to even know what you want and what exactly it is called.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: A friend has this product and for the price it truly rocks, I'm not a big Pioneer fan but dollar for dollar this is a decent unit with good features

3 out of 5 eggsNot what I thought - Not true video switching

Pros: It's a Pioneer. I love Pioneer for the sound, the durability, and all the other great things the Pioneer does. The receiver sounds great and was easy to hook up.

Cons: NOT TRUE VIDEO SWITCHING. I bought this to replace an older Pioneer receiver that lacked the HDMI ports. The receiver states that it is a video switch (in the title no less). It doesn't do what it says.

Page 17 of the manual clearly states that "The signal input from the analog (composite and component) video inputs will not be output from the HDMI OUT."

So in essence it will switch 2 HDMI sources to a single out, or it will switch multiple composite/component to a single composite/component out, but it will not switch all your video signals to a single out source. A little disappointing to say the least...

5 out of 5 eggsFor a bedroom Dj and otaku

Pros: This is my first receiver and home theater set up. The Ipod dock in the front is amazing. You can control your Ipod with the remote and even show the Ipod menu on your T.V. I have a lot of connections to go between my T.V., HTPC, Dj gear, and all of my game consoles. 1/4in. jack in the front. I don't use the Xm, serious, or FM/AM radio connections, but I'm sure they'd work very well. Great volume. Sleep timer and back light intensity settings. The second set of terminals for two other speakers is nice to have. I hear things in music, games, and T.V./movies that I didn't hear before. It has an 80mm fan in it to cool it off when it gets too hot (usually comes on at about -50 volume when I have something playing), and I wouldn't hear it if I wouldn't muck about with it so much.

Cons: It doesn't come with any a/v cables except the radio antenna. The universal remote that came with it won't work on my Westinghouse 32'' 720p. No more than 2 optical audio inputs and 0 outputs. I don't have a bigger room to put this kit in. It isn't drenched in LEDs that you can change the color of. It isn't infinty point one surround. Needs a lot of space to stay properly cool.

Other Thoughts: I have a pair of Yamaha 140w three way speakers and they sound great with this kit. I use my receiver to run my dj set up through (two gemini tt-04s and gemini ipmx mixer) and my HTPC with the standard mobo sound card.
