    I replaced my Vsx60 elite receiver since it doesn’t have 4K past through in many ways this is a much better receiver,ease of setup and operation,additional sound field settings. Sound and Vision praised this receiver and I couldn’t agree more ! Very satisfied!

    Very pleased with this stereo receiver. We have just a 3.1 setup with bookshelf, center and subwoofer speakers and the sound is great.

    I have this working in a 5.1 surround system (it can handle up to 7.2), with a 1080p TV (it can handle 4K).Setup was pretty simple. Only four HDMI inputs, so obviously if you have five or more devices you need to look elsewhere. Also this is HDMI only, no inputs for old component-type stuff, but I haven’t had anything that uses those in over a decade, so this is only a negative if you have some really old components.I wasn’t really happy with the speaker wire inputs. I have everything done up with banana plugs, for easy plugging. Well, only the front left/right inputs took banana, so I had to take my adapters off my wire. It’s pinch clip for everything else. And TINY space for getting the speaker wire in. My speaker cable is pretty fat, I use a low-gauge wire, and honestly it didn’t fit very well in the tiny clip holes, but I made it work.I used the auto speaker setup, letting the system balance it’s own volume levels. This seemed to go great. The sound is terrific on my system.I appreciated the option for CEC, which made it possible to control the receiver with my Roku ultra remote. In fact, I have no need for the included remote because of this. The included remote, by the way, is fairly awful, with 1990s style design (every button imaginable crammed onto the thing, so dumb. Just put these things into onscreen menus and have a nice, clean remote with just a few key buttons). I won’t hold this against it in my rating, since I’m not having to use the remote, but if I had to, this would cost a star!Since I don’t have 7.2 speaker setup, and don’t have 4K TV, I’m relying on this Pioneer to handle things and downstream accordingly. I’ve run HEVC encoded 4K movies set to Dolby Atmos and am able to enjoy these files on my “lesser” setup, with this Pioneer sitting in the middle.The main thing with a receiver is the versatility and the sound, and this scores 5/5 on that.
