This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1024-K 7.2 Channel 4K Ready AV Receiver
Pros: Fantastic sound for home theater. I was using a Yamaha RX-V 377 ( which is highly rated and sounds really good) before and after getting the Pioneer VSX-1024-K the sonics are way better than the 377 for Home Theater. I am using the same Klipsch Quintet 5.0( which are highly rated by Sound and Vision Magazine) surround speakers for both receivers..
Cons: I probably would not buy this if you like listening to music a lot. Not to say it's bad for music but if you like music you need to step up to the Pioneer VSX- 1124-K for it's Sabre DAC's which would make music sound really good.
Other Thoughts: Pioneer VSX- 1024-K
Klipsch Quintet 5.0
Klipsch KW -100 subwoofer
Pros: Good image quality on video, Played most multiplayer maps on bf 3 at 1080p on medium except grand bazzar map which ran below 30 fps for some reason.
Cons: crashed internet explorer in windows 8 repeatedly , changed drivers out same crashes . Changed video cards and no more crashes.
Other Thoughts: Gets 1439 in fire strike normal benchmark
Take my advice don't buy a video card unless it at least is twice as fast as new integrated graphics ( my hd 4600 scored 870 in fire strike)

This review is from: JBL Cinema 300 5.1-Channel Complete Home Theater Speaker System
Pros: I have these speakers Hooked up to a Harman Kardon AVR-1700( a very good receiver by the way) and these sound very good for music and Home theater. I am no Audiophile trust me but when you hear something and it sounds really really good it usually means you have a really good product. Excellent sound according to my ears and I have heard a lot of other very nice home theater systems before so I know good sound when I hear it...subwoofer is also very good and I mean very good.
Cons: The stand assembly on the 5 speakers attach ONLY ONE WAY and the Manual does not say that and even the picture does not Illustrate the stands only going on one way. If something doesnt fit right DO NOT FORCE IT. I ended up scratching the bottom of one of my speakers but hey no problem as the scratch is on the bottom and not showing...
Other Thoughts: These speakers are an absolute steal for the 200 dollars shipped I payed for them.
Speakers have a piano finish so they they show fingerprints easy not really a Con though...
