We purchased a VSX-53 through Amazon.com back in January 2012. The product worked great for a few months when suddenly the video processors both stopped working. We reviewed the issue with Pioneer support and they indicated we needed to bring the unit to an authorized factory repair shop and gave us the names of shops in our area. The unit was repaired but Pioneer refused to pay for the repair even thought the warranty was still in effect, or so we thought. It turns out when you buy Pioneer through amazon.com and Amazon connects you to a seller, the seller may be not an authorized dealer of Pioneer products. Of course the seller Amazon identified proclaims the unit is new, in a box and "fully warrantied". Not so! The unit isn't fully warrantied. Pioneer won't honor their warranty and the seller offers a 1 year vs. 2 years warranty if you will ship it to them in California (we live in Georgia). We are out of pocket more than $200 for a repair of a brand new unit that has a 2 year factory warranty if you buy it from the right seller. Of course, all the seller advertises is that the unit is "fully warrantied".

In our opinion as a buyer, these are deceptive sales practices on the parts of the seller and Amazon. Pioneer only has a few authorized sellers. Amazon doesn't point that out even though they connect you to sellers that advertise they have fully warrantied products. We appealed the matter under Amazon's A-Z Guarantee. The claim, even after appeal, was denied. The logic of the denial was that we purchased a defective unit and we didn't notify the seller or amazon within 60 days of purchase. Unfortunately the issue with the unit surfaced after 60 days.

If you are looking for awesome sound that can be remote controlled via your iPhone (iOS iPod, iPad, etc) this is simply the best for the money out there right now! You get it all, 7 HDMI inputs and 2 HDMI ouputs up to 3 Zones (Living Room, Bedroom, Bathroom, etc) ALL controllable by the best receiver iOS app on the market right now... This is a great price for a very high end AVR. Add some good speakers to this system and you really can't go wrong... looking forward to many hours of AV enjoyment all over the house. The unit shipped in 48hrs at a price you just can't find locally thanks to this seller and Amazon. Great experience, thanks -tvrPioneer Elite Vsx-53 Av Network Receiver - 7.1 Channel 3d

I upgraded to this receiver from a Sony home theater system that was a couple years old. I loved my Sony system but this one sets a new standard. It was incredibly easy to set up and it sounds amazing even on my old Sony surround sound satellites and two KEF floor standing speakers. The 7.1 surround was very nice while watching Cars 2 and Captain America. Plenty of inputs and outputs will ensure this thing will last for years without having to upgrade. If you are looking at this review then do yourself a favor and buy this receiver, you will not be disappointed.

BE CAUTIOUS, IF YOU GO TO THE PIONEER SITE TO SEE WHO IS APPROVED TO SELL THIS, THEY SPECIFICALLY SAY THEY WILL NOT OFFER SUPPORT / WARRANTIES FOR ANY ONLINE PURCHASE OF ANY PIONEER "ELITE" MODEL. This is important to do for all your big amazon purchases (a TV, for example). If this shows up not working, you better hope the person selling it to you will honor "their" warranty (good luck...), cause Pioneer will wash their hands of it.

So, I brought the price to the store and they price matched and I got my warranty.

That being said, here's a product review:
This reciever is awesome. More than I will ever figure out how to use, probably, but it sounds INCREDIBLE. My wife gave me hell, asked why we should spend so much on the reciever (I had a $300 reciever before), and then she heard the first vocals and she said "...oh, that's why." I couldn't stop smiling the first heavy action sequence I saw. I rewound it three times. Incredible.

Hook up is easy, and you can plug and play really easily. Better set-up is not challenging but time consuming to learn how to do things.

The remote is a "learning" master remote, so you can use it to learn buttons from other remotes and use it as your main remote control -- big, great surprise.

Video processing is excellent, up-converts obviously and nicely.

I asked the audio-dude about the comparable denon's / onkyo's -- both are very nice options. He said that as you ramp up the wattage (i.e. add up to 7 speakers) this system tends to hold its power and be louder, whereas the others lose some power and have to run more at their max for the same sound.

Note that this is BIG. 17x17x15 I think, so measure your set-up. I had to cut a whole in mine to fit.

I've had the unit a few weeks now and am still learning how to use it. The user's manual is 98 pages of fairly fine print info, and only a few pages are fluff like don't use the unit in the bathtub. Overall I like the unit but it is awfully complicated. I am also finding things I expected to be able to do that I can't (my fault for looking the unit over at Best Buy and relying on the info I got there, but buying it on line for hundreds less). I expected to use this with my Bose 901 Series VI speakers and equalizer, but no (or at least not easily). I'm using the old receiver this unit replaced to drive the Bose, driven by the main pre-amp out of this unit, with the Bose equalizer hooked in to the old receiver. This Pioneer drives all the surround etc. speakers, and provides all the audio and video processing. I liked the ability to connect all my devices with HDMI outputs (CATV set-top box, PS3, BluRay) to this unit and drive my HDTV solely with the HDMI output from the Pioneer. I also use an HDMI splitter to drive an HDTV in another adjacent room. Well, so far there appears to be no way to drive both HDTVs simultaneously via HDMI and have high def audio in both places (I have an older A/V receiver in the adjacent room). If you choose to have the Pioneer's HDMI output carry the audio, it disables the audio on the Pioneer, and I'm left using the TV's wimpy speakers for audio in the main room if I want audio via HDMI in the adjacent room. The next attempt will be using the "Zone output" with regular RCA audio cables to drive the audio in the adjacent room so I can have audio via the Pioneer in the main room. There doesn't appear to be any way to get audio on the Pioneer while still letting the HDMI output carry an audio signal.Read more ›
