    I love the airplay feature but when I wanted to listen to music from another PC on my network it took forever to scroll through all the songs.

    The remote is complicated and operating the receiver is way too complex.

    I have never written a review before, but felt compelled to with this av receiver. The upscaling ability of this receiver is nothing short of stunning. I watched Eureka season 2 on Netflix, standard def, about 5 seconds in , the screen changed, and I thought I was watching a blu ray disc. I then tried other shows and movies I wouldn't watch because of picture quality, and as before, 5 seconds in and magic, the picture was stunning. It makes hi def on my Direct tv look just as good. As for sound, this system ( once you run the Macca set up), will embarrass Onkyo,and the overpriced Denon and Marantz receivers. Set up is the one area where Pioneer fell short. The manual in the box is basically useless, you must download the Av Navigator app and it will walk you through the set up, step by step. Without the app, it's like dancing in the dark. The remote app(separate) is really top of the line. Make sure you turn on the picture up conversion on the app, set it to 1080p, sit back and enjoy. I would purchase this again, maybe even upgrade. Pioneer has a great product here. Give it a try. I have already recommended this to my friends. Hope this helps in your shopping journey.

    Verified Purchase
    This is a very solid receiver -- once you get it dialed in, recommendations for which I include below. There are also two irritating limitations, one with some of the HDMI ports and one with assignable audio inputs. I explain both below, but neither will apply to you if you have 5 or fewer HDMI sources and will always use HDMI for audio on those sources, so you may be able to skip those sections.

    I'm using this to drive my Pioneer Kuro PDP-5020FD TV and Pioneer SP-PK52FS 5.1 speaker set, both of which are absolutely outstanding products. Getting used to the receiver's interfaces and features can take a little while, so you'll definitely want to spend some quality time with the manual, but the result makes doing so worthwhile. Once you get everything dialed in, it truly is a fantastic experience. Audio to my ear is full, pure, and LOUD, and upscaled DVD and streaming video both look fabulous (so do HD sources, but they usually do anyway) -- though to be fair, I haven't compared my speakers with another receiver or vice versa, and lower-quality video looked great to me even before this purchase because my OPPO BDP-93 Blu-ray player and Pioneer TV are both known for delivering fabulous video even from lower-quality sources. It's also got some pretty convenient features such as AirPlay support (audio only) and the iControlAV 2012 app.

    HDMI LIMITATION:
    HDMI Inputs 5, 6 (the front port), and 7 can't be selected directly. For those ports, you have to press the "HDMI" source button, which selects whichever of those inputs you last used, and continue pressing it to cycle between those 3 HDMI inputs. This does NOT apply to the BD, SAT/CBL, DVR/BDR, or DVD HDMI inputs, all of which can be selected directly.

    system 5.2 setup
    2 def tech BP 8040 towers with built in powered subs,2 def tech BP 8040 surround speakers,1 def tech BP 8040 center channel.

    Devices
    55" flat screen TV, Laptop W/HDMI, DVD player, PS3, and cable box

    I purchased this receiver last month when the price first dropped below $600. I was very excited to hook it up with my definitive technology speaker system. The sound was Amazing!!!! I repeat AMAZING

    Setup
    The setup was pretty good but it sucks that nowadays they don't give you a hard copy of the owner's manual it's on CD-ROM which I only have on my desktop PC in the office upstairs. Luckily Pioneer does have the AV Navigator app available in iTunes. Once I went through the setup Navi I was ready to fire it up.

    Remote
    The remote is terrible. It seemed like it had hundreds of useless buttons but the more I played around the easier it got although after installing the iControlAV2012 app on my Ipad the remote became an afterthought.

    Receiver and features
    I loved this receiver for the short time I had it. I had upgraded from an old JVC HTIB to start a real home theater. I originally set the system up with the setup mic but I still prefer to just play around until I get the settings I like. This is easily accomplished with the icontrol app. The only negative to the app was it does not save those settings when the system is powered off. I love the airplay feature but when I wanted to listen to music from another PC on my network it took forever to scroll through all the songs. Streaming Netflix from my laptop was nice but I often had problems with the sound cutting out which meant either rebooting the PC or Receiver or sometimes both.

    This is a review for Pioneer receivers in general in the sub $650 price range, and Pioneer as a company. I have owned a Pioneer some time ago before the digital age, but have only sampled these newer ones in store and via setting up a VSX-822 for a friend.

    They are pretty much the best sounding in the under $650 price point, with the VSX-60 and VSX-1122 also offering more features than others in this price range. Sound is clean and tight with midrange sounding open and distinct. Bass plays low and very tight after calibration. Tests have showed the VXS-60 producing somewhat less than advertised distortion levels.

    Now the bad, first, the product itself. Menu navigation system is very awkward and non intuitive, as is the remote button layout. Surround modes other than original format decoding are very echo laden and pretty much useless. LCD display is very hard to get to show what you want it to, and once it does, it doesn't seem to want to show a static display of large, easy to read fonts, such as audio format being decoded.

    Lastly, Pioneer as a company is very restrictive as to what vendors they honor as authorized dealers. Amazon.com used to be an authorized Pioneer dealer, but Pioneer no longer honors warranty on any of their receivers purchased via Amazon, so buyer beware. Trust Amazon, but buy an extended warranty that someone else covers if you can. Denon, Onkyo, Yamaha and even MARANTZ!, all list Amazon as an authorized dealer.

    There's nothing wrong with using Amazon.com in my experience. I bought my Panasonic TV and Blu-ray player and Yamaha receiver from them. They immediately credited me over $25 when I noted the TV price had dropped. As far as I can tell, Pioneer is unfairly throttling Amazon, and their employees don't even know why.
