"Class Leading Performance!"5.0 starson by MrPorterhouse
Pros: Exceptional Surround Processing. Industry leading auto calibration. Very Strong amplifiers.
Cons: Availibility can be limited due to high sales volume
Summary: This is an amazing A/V Receiver. Don't think that it's just for entry level duty, as its performance extends into competitiveness with receivers up to $1000. Its almost expected these days to have a receiver that can calibrate itself to your specific room, and the Pioneer 1015 has an industry leading auto setup called Auto MCACC. This uses the included microphone that you set that in your primary listening position and just let the receiver set all the levels and delays and correct for reflections and equalize to your specific environment. The result is a sound that is perfectly optimized with your speakers in your room. The amplifiers that are incorporated in the 1015 are very strong and have the warm, full sound that Pioneers have become known for. All types of music and movies are a total joy to listen to. You'll find yourself digging out all of your old favorites because you want to hear how they sound on the 1015. Inputs are plentiful and connection types are current to the needs of a modern day home theater. In conclusion, you'll love the Pioneer VSX-1015, and you'll find it to totally outclass the competing units. I can't find a single fault.
