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. 3 component video inputs and 3 AV inputs, 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.

4 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck

Pros: Really good vaule. If you want a receiver and do not need a top of the line receiver, this is a good choice. I only need something that could decode digital signal from my WD HD media box and this did the trick.

Cons: Only one optical input and no HDMI

Other Thoughts: For the average user this will do the trick. I got this one on sale for $150 with free shipping, which I think is a steal.

5 out of 5 eggsI am impressed!

Pros: Sound quality. Connections. Price!

Cons: Do not see any Bass or Treble controls. (so far, I have not needed sounds Great as is!)

Other Thoughts: Please note this is my first surround receiver...I was not expecting this much for the price I paid! I hooked it up to a set of Yamaha surround speakers with a powered sub. We listen to alot of music and even the "fake surround"settings are superb! We did not realize what we have been missing!

4 out of 5 eggsPioneer VSX 518K

Pros: Easily adjustable, enough power for most situations, looks good, great for second receiver or budget entry level home theater system

Cons: Chincy speaker connectors

Other Thoughts: I bought this to drive two pairs of polk audio tower speakers in my pool table room. More than enough power. For the price, it does the job, and if I ever want to put a Home Theater system in the spare bedroom, this Pioneer will do the job. For the price, you can't go wrong.
