The sound is very balanced from speaker to speaker.
D. VanderLoon
Not sure what that might be, but overall I am totally satisfied with this purchase and would highly recommend this receiver to anyone.
Fred Garvin
The auto speaker environment setting procedure using the Auto MCACC feature was a real plus in doing the setup.

Have used the 9040 for a month now and feel like I can post an objective review. It rocks! I do a lot of research before I buy and was looking at the Onkyo receivers (707) but came upon the 9040 in the Pioneer posts on avsforum.com where I learned the 9040 was a re-badged vsx-21thx Elite model. The 9040 does not have "Elite" on the faceplate, but if you look at the specs on both they are the same, as others have pointed out. That said, so what? How good is the 21thx? After reading all that I could find the 21thx is a great unit with many satisfied owners so the 9040 seemed like a great deal. It does not run hot and does not do that annoying click when changing input sources that the Onkyo's do.

The 9040 took @ 2 hours for me to set it up and I played with it for 2 weeks until I got the settings I wanted. Now I am a very happy camper. Take the time to go through the manual and try the different settings. The audio calibration system from Pioneer (MCACC) is very easy to use and does a good job at settings based on your room config (seating, acoustics, etc). The are 6 settings that you can save, each of which is manually cutomizable which is what I did after running the advanced auto mode. This thing is a beast weighing in the same as the 21-thx, about 17lbs more than the other non-Elite models. It has many more settings than I will ever use ( I don't have THX certified speakers and no need for a pre-amp, for example) but I wanted the power and the QUALITY of a model in this class. There is little info on the 9040 on Pio's website and I do have to say I have been surprised that Pio doesn't offer more detailed info. For example, The Anchor Bay video solution found on high-end equipment is rumored to be in this unit but I can't find that in print anywhere (also nothing to dispute it).

I was in the market for a new AV Receiver after buying a new LCD and Blu Ray player as my old Panasonic receiver had no HDMI inputs/outputs. I was comparing it to several other higher priced models from Onkyo, Yamaha and Denon. I decided to go with this one because of the inputs and higher power. I have several pieces of AV equipment that do not have HDMI and my TV only had one set of components. This receiver solved my problem with its 4 assignable HDMI, 2 assignable Component and several S Video inputs. Everything that goes it gets put out via the HDMI to the TV. It has a tone of other connections as well for everything from satellite radio to a tape deck to an iPod.

The first thing that blew me away was the sound quality. I ran the speaker setup (it informed me that a couple speakers were out of phase which I fixed) which only took about 5 minutes and threw a BD into my player. I never had sound like that from either of my previous receivers. I put a CD on and it was like listening to it for the first time. My favorite feature though is the iPod link. Pioneer throws in a connection cable for the iPod and it works with my Touch perfectly. The song info and album artwork are displayed on the TV screen and you can control the iPod with the Pioneer remote. You can scroll through the playlists, albums and artists (although if you have a ton of music it take a looong time to scroll through it all, they need to improve this...) My digital music never sounded better.

This is an excellent receiver that I cannot recommend highly enough.

I fully agree with the last reviewer - the bang for the buck with this receiver is off the charts. I already owned a Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K and am very happy with it. But I was a little leary of the lightweight power supply and hybrid Direct Energy amplifier. The 1019 sounds great at low to mid volumes in a small to medium sized room with reasonably efficient speakers, but I did notice as I went up the volume scale some "glare" creeping in and other MINOR signs of being over-driven.
I started researching other Pioneer receivers with an eye towards the Elite line and the VSX 21TXH in particular. I wanted discrete amplification, pre-amp outs, and at least as good a feature set as the 1019. Sound quality is paramount to me, as I spend much more time listening to music than I do watching movies. I also have a very high dollar two channel audiophile rig in another room, so I tend to know the type of sound I am looking for. While researching the Elite VSX 21TXH I noticed a very curious fact - the VSX 9040 has EXACTLY the same specifications as the 21TXH Elite. This includes not only feature set, but amp specifications and even dimensions and weight!!! The only perceptible differences that I could find are purely cosmetic. You don't get the pretty "Elite" gold emblem on the front. You don't get the gloss black front panel(the 9040s front panel is black aluminum), you get blue rather than amber display and one year less warranty. You even get the same chip set and THX certification in the 9040. In essence, a VSX 21TXH Elite in sheeps clothing.
Now the important point - Acknowledging that sound quality is highly subjective in nature, I have to say that for the price, the 9040 sounds fantastic. No more glare at higher volumes.
