With 140 Watts (1 kHz 1 % THD @ 6 Ohms 1ch Driven) or 80 Watts (20Hz-20kHz .08% THD @ 8 Ohms) of clear audio reproduction and advanced new technologies, Pioneer's VSX-823 feature rich, yet affordable receiver that lets you take advantage of Pioneer's innovative approach to the networked home theater experience. Proving that connectivity is the key, the VSX-823 delivers the broadest platform for your Apple or Android lifestyle, streaming your favorite content and controlling your receiver, right from the palm of your hand.
Connectivity is Key
Smartphones have become a convenient and powerful way to stay connected to your favorite entertainment. Pioneer's new networked receivers give instant access to your favorite content and control options through smartphones and tablets. The VSX-823 unleashes more music and video content in the living room and through the home, thanks to class-leading digital connectivity and flexible networking features.
The VSX-823 features the latest Made for iPhone and iPad certification, which includes the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini. Since this receiver is networked, it also supports Apple's AirPlay wireless music streaming technology allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your iPhone, iPod or iTunes directly to the receiver.
That is just half the story. Pioneer is the only receiver brand with HTC Connect, the only unified approach for the Android platform for streaming music wirelessly from select compatible HTC smartphones. HTC Connect makes it easy to wireless stream your favorite music to your receiver, there is no need for a separate app, HTC Connect is built right into your phone's music player.
The VSX-823 also supports DLNA 1.5 media streaming which allows for access to your favorite music from a DLNA server or computer connected to the same home network. Not only are compressed music files supported such as MP3, WMA, and AAC but also high resolution files such as FLAC, WAV, AIFF and Apple Lossless.
Can't find the remote? Because the VSX-823 is a networked receiver, simply download Pioneer's ControlApp at no charge, turning your Apple or Android device into a remote control for the VSX-823. ControlApp not only allows you to control and manage your receiver settings, this app also allows you to access music stored on your smartphone and push it wirelessly to the receiver, without juggling between ControlApp and your phone's built in music player. Control app makes it easy to stream new music with Pandora, or use vTuner internet radio to access thousands of radio stations from all over the world.
4K Ultra-HD Compatible
4K x 2K resolution, usually referred to as simply "4K Ultra HD", is the latest high definition video display format, with four times the resolution of 1080p. The Pioneer VSX-823 is ready to pass through 4K Ultra HD video signals to a compatible display, meaning it can support home theater systems dedicated to producing the highest quality picture available today.
Expanded HDMI Connectivity and MHL 2.0 Compatibility
Offering more inputs than comparable receivers, the VSX-823 features 6 HDMI inputs, including support for both 3D and 4K Ultra HD sources. The front HDMI terminal is MHL 2.0 (Mobile High-Definition Link) compatible, letting you connect and control compatible Android devices. High-definition video can be displayed on your HDTV with multi-channel sound, while also charging your device. MHL 2.0 adds support for 3D content, 1080P 60Hz, and faster cell phone charging.
Music File Playback
With the growing interest in high-quality digital music, Pioneer AV Receivers have broadened their support for high-resolution audio playback. In addition to MP3 WMA, AAC, FLAC, WAV music file playback, the VSX-823 now supports high resolution Apple Lossless and AIFF music files. Stream these files from your home network, smartphone device, tablet, or even the front USB.
ECO Mode
The new, energy-saving ECO Mode found on all 2013 Pioneer AV receivers goes far beyond the conventional wisdom about "green" electronics, with a standby power consumption of only 0.1 watt when enabled. Our ECO Mode offers all of the convenience features of today's modern AV receivers, including Network Standby and HDMI CEC support, while reducing power consumption in both on and standby modes. The intelligent ECO Mode analyzes your sources in real time, adjusting power consumption accordingly to meet your needs, or you can choose the power-saving settings that are right for you. You can control ECO Mode using the receiver's front panel, the included remote control, or the ECO Manager page of Pioneer's free ControlApp for your smartphone or tablet. Now you can feel better about your entertainment experience without sacrificing power or features.
A Customized Home Theater Experience
The VSX-823 features Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC), providing an optimized multi-channel listening experience by measuring every speaker's connection, noting its size and distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre in order to calibrate, customize and maximize performance specifically for your room.
On Screen Display
If your home theater system is hidden away in a cabinet or closet it is often difficult to know the current volume level or other status indicators of the receiver. This is where the On Screen Display feature comes into play. When turned on, On-Screen Display will overlay your receiver's basic information such as volume, input, and surround mode as you make adjustments using the remote.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of money

Pros: Decent receiver for the money.
Network ready

Cons: Shuts off at random times
Loss of HDMI connection (this happens several times a day)
Slow to change inputs
Stopped working altogether after 9 months.

Other Thoughts: I was willing to put up with the qwerks but today the receiver made a pop noise and turned off. No all I get is a blinking red led.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for the money.

Pros: Easy to set up. Excellent sound quality for the price. 6 HDMI inputs with 3d and 4k pass through. It can get really loud without distorting.

Cons: Gets a little warm on top at higher volumes.

Other Thoughts: This is a really great sounding receiver if you take the time to make the adjustments. It did take a few times of the auto set-up to get it right, getting better each time. In its defense I moved the speakers each time based on the sounds and I believe the combination of doing both got a really good quality surround sound configuration. It is easy to blame the receiver for lower sound quality but the problem may be the cables not the receiver itself. I wasn't getting good bass from the subwoofer, but replacing the cheap cable with a nice quality cable fixed the problem. At $400 you won't get the top of the line product but it is solid and most issues in quality can be fixed with better cables. This is an excellent receiver that I got on sale and it replaced a $500 theater in a box system that sounded pretty good, but this is better using the same speakers from that set up. If you buy it, you won't regret it, its really nice for the price especially if you take the time to set it up correctly.

1 out of 5 eggsTruly dissapointed

Pros: Good sound

Cons: Replaced an older Pioneer receiver for true HDMI connectivity. What a disappointment this newer model is. From cryptic control interfaces at best to sketchy HDMI connectivity (slow channel changing, loss of sound and blank screens).The icing on the cake is that the unit powers of randomly and the only response from Pioneer support is to take it to a service center 45 miles away with a horrific reputation.

Other Thoughts: Absolutely my last Pioneer product.
