Pioneer VSX-5000 AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-5000 AV-receiver

What I am about to describe may sound like two, three, or even four separate audio and video components. In fact, however, all of the features and functions I'll be discussing are contained in a single receiver, and not a particularly large or heavy one at that. Frankly, it took me more than an hour...
Pioneer VSX-806RDS AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-806RDS AV-receiver

The impression is that at the development of Pioneer VSX-806RDS for the sake of "artistry" the designers have forgotten about functional combination of controls, placing volume control in one side, loudness button in the opposite direction and tones and balance somewhere in the middle of the panel. The...

Pioneer VSX-915 AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-915 AV-receiver

The new line, as recognized in the Pioneer, shifted down (at a price, of course, but not in quality) relative to last year. In other words, the model that you see on the photo, the level corresponds to the VSX-814. Nevertheless, VSX-915 looks rich and thoroughly: the control buttons on the front panel...
Pioneer VSX-915-S AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-915-S AV-receiver

Appearance receiver Pioneer VSX-915-S is misleading: Stylish front panel turned out to plastic for a model of this class - a rarity. No other structural compromises.

Pioneer VSX-AX3-S AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-AX3-S AV-receiver

Pioneer VSX-C301 AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-C301 AV-receiver

"Pioneer" is hard to suspect that he is - pretty powerful receiver. In the apparatus slim, at least on the front panel buttons, and almost the entire central part of the display is the indicator. Behind the VSX-C301 also bears little resemblance to the receiver: there is only aerial terminal, fan, four...
Pioneer VSX-C502 AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-C502 AV-receiver

Familiarity with this novelty immediately led to the idea that Pioneer in the development of thin receiver at the center put a different value - not the functionality and sound quality. While this is speculation, but judge for yourself. It's heavy. With less power VSX-C502 consumes network more than...
Pioneer VSX-D1011-K AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-D1011-K AV-receiver

Home of the "facial" receiver - wide hinged panel hides the least favored controls and analog AV-input signals.

Pioneer VSX-D810S AV-receiver

This model - a very low price, which is nice and happy at the same time raises the question... if it is not inferior to the rest of proportion to the cost? However, neither the functions nor the level of study of the major decisions of radical differences we discovered. Six identical channels amplifier...
Pioneer VSX-D811S-K AV-receiver
Pioneer VSX-D811S-K AV-receiver

Hinged lid, inherited receiver from senior colleagues, hides most of the controls and full AV-input (including connectors for optical digital output and S-Video), so the front panel does not look overloaded - rather the contrary. But it is, so to speak, the facade. Behind him - six channel amplifier....
