"Bang for the buck. Better performance than Onkyo 608"5.0 starson by ciper
Pros: Hard to find DTS-MA and Dolby TrueHD in a receiver with such a low price (got mine for 499 shipped, no tax). The auto "MCACC" calibration works really well, it only needed minor adjustments for my picky ears
Cons: The included remote is kinda lacking since it doesn't have a button for every input. Buy a Harmony remote instead. It doesn't have pre-outs but the seven built in amplifiers are powerful enough for the majority of users.
Summary: I wasn't much of a fan of Pioneer products in the past. I preferred more high end brands. After reading such rave reviews from people and websites I respected I thought I would give it a try and I am glad I did
