Thanks to Made for iPod touch, iPhone, and iPad Certification, Apple devices are easily connected with the included USB/video cable - so there's no need to buy a separate dock to store all your music, videos, and streaming content. Plus, since your iPhone, iPod and now your iPad charge automatically when connected, it's the ultimate plug-and-play integration with your home theater. You can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, share videos and movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web content from YouTube® and much more. Got a call? The iPhone will mute movies and music so you can take it. Use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the SC-63's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive, full-color GUI.
With AirPlay, stream music from iTunes to the SC-63 and play it through your home theater system without docks or cables. Simply connect the receiver to your home network via Ethernet, and it instantly becomes the hub for playback of your iTunes music from your connected Apple® device or networked computer.
You can stream your music straight from your PC or Mac®, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to the SC-63 at the touch of a button. Listen to your favorite song in your car using your iPhone, leave your car mid song and walk into your home. Using the AirPlay App on your iPhone, select the SC-63. When you do, it'll power up automatically and continue your favorite song right where you left off.
You can even view song information including song title, artist, and track time as well as album art on a connected display. Not only that, the SC-63's supports network audio sources in Zone 2, allowing you to send music to another room. With AirPlay, there's really no reason why your iTunes music has to be restricted to your computer.
HTC Connect™ is for Android® owners who, until now, have constantly asked, "What about me?" The good news is your receiver has arrived. A Pioneer exclusive, the SC-63 proudly supports HTC Connect, compatible with HTC One series phones. HTC Connect makes it easy to wirelessly stream your favorite music straight from your HTC One phone. There's no need for a separate app; HTC Connect is built right into your phone's music player.
Connect to Your PC Music Files or Internet Radio
The SC-63's networking ability opens up an entirely new world of possibilities. A rear panel Ethernet port allows full integration into your home network, with Windows® 7 and DLNA® 1.5 certification, a whole new level of entertainment options are at your fingertips. With 192kHz / 24-bit WAV and FLAC file compatibility, network streaming audio playback is now ready for the true audiophile.

An optional AS-WL300 wireless adapter is also available for your wireless network convenience.
Unleash Your Smartphone's Music with Bluetooth®
The SC-63 is fully ready for wireless Bluetooth audio from virtually any A2DP profile Bluetooth device. With the Pioneer AS-BT200 Bluetooth adapter, you can untether yourself from cables and inputs. Plus you'll enjoy enriched quality with Sound Retriever AIR technology, created specifically to enhance Bluetooth audio.
Ultimate Sound Control
The SC-63 supports formats like Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. Pioneer also includes all of the Dolby and DTS surround formats best suited for the wide variety of entertainment sources, including the newest Dolby Pro Logic® IIz height channel.
The SC-63 takes the multi-room audio experience to a whole new level with Zone 2 subwoofer and tone controls, as well as On-Screen Display for the second Zone. Two 12V triggers and IR In / Out's let the SC-63 master even the most complex home theater setups.
Class D³ Amplification
The SC-63's Class D³ seven-channel amplifier is one of the most powerful amplifiers of any multi-channel A/V receiver Pioneer has ever produced. Keeping the new audio formats of the Blu-ray Disc format in mind, Class D³ takes high-resolution multi-channel audio to a whole new level of immersive performance.
Rated at 125W x 7 channels, with a 7.2-channel preout, the SC-63 delivers plenty of power, but it's not the whole story. Where the SC-63 really shows its unprecedented power output capability is when driving multi-channels simultaneously without losing significant per-channel output. Class A/B amplifiers simply cannot match the efficiency of Class D³ as their power output per channel diminishes rapidly when more channels are added to the work-load. This kind of unprecedented power capability allows you to appreciate the full dynamics from any media source in a way never before possible. The ability to drive more channels, simultaneously, means you can fully reproduce all of the dynamics and impact of high-definition multi-channel Dolby and DTS soundtracks with up to seven channels of the highest quality power output available today.
Advanced Qdeo® Video Processing. Picture Perfect Whatever the Source
Using Qdeo processing technology and Pioneer's extensive video know-how makes home theater a truly immersive experience. The SC-63 provides video conversion from composite and component video to HDMI for a single-wire high-definition audio and video solution as well as up to 1080p / 24fps video scaling for an exceptional picture regardless of the source, creating natural and noise-free video for maximum performance and flexibility.
And with Pioneer's Advanced Video Adjust , you'll experience the very best in both high-definition and standard definition signals, with a complete suite of advanced image adjustments designed to fine-tune each of your video sources for the best possible picture.
Get Ready for 3D with the Latest HDMI® Technology
All of Pioneer's newest receivers support the latest HDMI specifications. So not only do you get the most out of your existing movies and music, with the SC-63 you're prepared for the new generation of 3D video content. With seven HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available. The SC-63 also offers advanced HDMI conveniences like Audio Return Channel and Power Save HDMI Standby Through.
Transform your Apple Device into a Powerful Remote Control
Communicating with the SC-63 wirelessly through your home network, Pioneer's free iControlAV2012 app turns your iPhone, iPod and iPad device or select Android devices into a powerful remote control for your receiver. The all new iControlAV2012 is fully redesigned, incorporating everything from basic volume and input selection to advanced features like EQ adjustments and Internet radio control. iControlAV2012 for iPad includes enhanced features like vertical and horizontal orientation, intuitive control of music from networked PCs as well as Internet radio control, and a super- cool finger EQ adjust screen; simply draw the EQ curve to your desired sound preference. New Sound Explorer gives you easy access to experiment with the many powerful sound enhancements the SC-63 offers, like Hi-Bit 24, Auto Phase Control Plus, and Virtual Speaker modes.
Know How and Show How with AVNavigator
Imagine an owner's manual that actually communicates with your receiver. Or that asks you what sources you'd like to connect and how you'd like to configure your speakers, then walks you through the process as you do it.
An industry-first, Pioneer's AVNavigator truly is an interactive owner's manual that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your receiver. AVNavigator uses your networked PC to communicate directly with the SC-63, walking you through speaker set-up, sound optimization, firmware updates and more.
Full-Color On-Screen Graphical User Interface
All of the SC-63's advanced control and connectivity options are made even better with a full-color user interface via HDMI on your connected TV. Effortlessly navigate through the SC-63's menu and enjoy iTunes album art from a connected Apple device. This is one well-rounded AV receiver.
Ideal for Custom Home Theater Installation
The Elite series was designed with an eye toward custom-installed home theater solutions, with features to match. Multi-zone capability with support for Zone2 outputs allows you to watch movies or listen to music in two rooms at once. An RS-232 bus connection allows custom installers access into the "control brain" of the SC-63, for customized remote control development. For advanced custom installation, the SC-63 is fully configurable from a PC set-up program that also allows installers to "see" the receivers settings even from another location. The SC-63 is compatible with popular "whole-house" entertainment systems such as Crestron, AMX, Control 4, Universal, Savant, and RTI, and its IP capabilities allow users to control their entertainment system via a home network.
All this plus support for Pioneer Apps, third-party control devices, custom-ready detachable power cord, and IR in/out for universal remotes make the Elite series the ultimate answer for a custom home entertainment solution.
This review is from: Pioneer Elite SC-63 7.2-Channel AV Receiver
Pros: This receiver is awesome. I liked it so much that I purchased the SC-68 as well. The Digital amplifiers are VERY powerful, and can drive 4 ohm speakers effortlessly. The MCAA room correction is FAR superior to the Audyssey MultiEQ in my opinion, and only needs to read from one point in the room, not from every seated position. This Receiver has NO jitter when playing back 24/192 24/96 flac or ALAC files from your PC. The music is Dead silent when it is supposed to be. I was very hesitant at jumping into a digital amplifier since all I had used was separates at this point, but dropping 3k on an amp, and another 3-4k on a preamp was not an option now that i'm married with kids, lol. At the price they are selling it, it is a steal... with that being said... no piece of audio gear is worth anything without a warranty these days, and I would steer clear. Its too bad, thats such a great price.
Cons: No Warranty through New Egg
Other Thoughts: If you can buy this for the same price that includes a warranty, and you need to upgrade an older system... dont hesitate.
This review is from: Pioneer Elite SC-63 7.2-Channel AV Receiver
Pros: Great Receiver. Don't buy Pioneer Elite online. You won't have a warranty. Read Pioneer's policy regarding warranty for Elite receivers.
Cons: This is taken directly from the Pioneer Website under "authorized online retailers":
*Pioneer does NOT authorize any dealers to sell Elite-branded products on the Internet (only in-store sales are permitted). Therefore, any Elite-branded product purchased on the Internet is NOT authorized, which means that it does NOT carry the manufacturer's limited warranty and does not qualify for any manufacturer's rebate.

This review is from: Pioneer Elite SC-63 7.2-Channel AV Receiver
Pros: I do not own this receiver.
Cons: I do not own this receiver.
Other Thoughts: Note that newegg's description strangely omits the warranty specification...
I was about to purchase the SC-63 receiver, but found out that Pioneer would not honor the standard warranty for any of the Elite line products purchased thru the web.
From my research I see that this is a great receiver and you may choose to make the purchase, but should be aware of the no warranty condition.
Note that newegg is an authorized reseller of Pioneer Electronics' standard receiver line.
