Pioneer VSX-823-K 5.1-Channel 4K Ready AV Receiver
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Good for the money. 04/06/2014

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-823-K 5.1-Channel 4K Ready AV Receiver

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.
