      Exceptional sound and versatility

      The LX701 AV has definitely grown on me and I've taken advantage of all the features. My main zone runs 5.1 Dolby which is perfect for most content streaming through Netflix or Satellite programming. I run a 2nd zone to speakers in the kitchen and the 3rd zone to outdoor speakers, so it's got enough juice to power 9 speakers at once if I want whole room audio. Paired with the SONOS connect amp and recent firmware upgrade, it supports full-home audio. My favorite feature though is the elite quality of music even through Spotify. I just et it to stereo for dedicated listening and paired with the dual subs, the clarity and separation of this thing is just amazing. It's a whole new listening experience which gets me to rehash dozens of tunes and genres over the years with the ability to hear almost studio-quality cuts. When you get this thing right, it's highly recommended!

      My Yamaha receiver had a channel die on it and as it was almost 10 years old I opted to buy a new unit. I would have replaced it with another Yamaha unit but I have a Pioneer Elite Kuros flat screen TV which I love and have had ZERO problems with, I decided to try the Pioneer Elite receiver. The price and overall unit functions between the Yamaha and Pioneer recievers were almost identical. I think the major difference between this Pioneer unit and my old Yamaha unit if the new Pioneer unit is HD so the sound and video is much improved! I also like the built in wifi. I have updated the firmware and can stream directly through this unit. The Pioneer SC LX701 is not cheap, but I believe you get what you pay for. My only complaint right now is Pioneer says it was simplifying the remote. Yes, there are not as many function buttons on the remote. In fact, there doesn't seem to be enough! You will have to have a video display to navigate through the functions. In time, I may like this feature, but I am not accustomed to this.

      Only reason I bought this is because it had solid 4k upscaling and the history of pioneer in the sound industry. Coming from a Sony that I did enjoy but was looking to go to the next tier. Well within 2 months this I had nothing but erroneous hdmi issues to include random switching. Loss of signal. And loss of sound. Just to get anything to work now I have to plug all my inputs into my TV. And even then it still switches randomly. If I could return I would but of course I'm outside my Best Buy return window and am At the mercy of sending off a 40lb receiver to somewhere to get fixed.

      I have an SC-55 which is a predecessor to this one. I think I overheated it at one point and loss the Pandora option to play through the app. (I now have 5 temperature controlled fans on it) I had it installed in a simple 5.1 set up with 2 zones outside (two speakers each). At some point I began having issues with the sound in the house. Fought it for a year and decided to get a replacement. Bought the new unit and it seemed a little better (wishful thinking). Long story short, my Definitive Tech center channel wasn't working. I decided to keep the new one and love it. They've added bluetooth which allows the easy connection of Amazon Alexa and they have a new app which gives you a lot more control. You can now run any input on any zone now. All controlled with the app. I haven't figured out how to get more volume out of the 2nd and 3rd zone but it's not a big deal.

      Was using a Denon x4100w before the HDMI inputs went out. Luckily I had Best Buy's protection plan as it allowed me to upgrade to this beast. I tried out a Pioneer before this item, but was completely underwhelmed by all aspects of sound and customization. This Yamaha though, has exceeded my expectations. Thought I would miss Denon's xt32 sound adjustment, but Yamaha's is pretty good too. This Yamaha receiver feels really well built too. Sounds great for movies and music. Highly recommend!

      Replaced our 4 year old failed Yamaha RX-A receiver hoping for better long term reliability with Pioneer Elite. The setup was easy. Has all the HDMI connectivity we needed and plenty of power for our 5.1 layout. The MCACC Pro Auto Room Tuning worked nicely though tweaked it a bit manually after a week of testing. It works perfectly with our Harmony universal controller. Amp design runs cooler than the Yamaha did. The Sabre DAC handles our HD audio perfectly & having the front panel USB is helpful for playing music files off a thumb drive. Features we don't use (yet) for streaming, upscaling 4K and Dolby atmosphere are there for the future. So far, we're very happy. Just not 5 stars because of the price point, especially since they're selling the 801 for the same price now. If only I'd waited a month. Grrrrrrrrrrrr.....

      Item received today. Opened box to find it was missing a remote control. Customer Service offered to 'Sell" me a replacement. Stated 'Open Box" items do not always have a remote. He offered to send me another unit but then rescinded stating inventory was low. After transferring me to a different department I was hung up on. Now I will be returning the entire unit and ordering a new one online as it is still available. Very disappointment in this transaction...

      Can't beat the power it puts out!...

      I bought this to upgrade my existing Pioneer Elite. Before I did. I did purchase a Marantz. The Marantz does not come close to the power this Pioneer Elite it puts out. I feel the Marantz is at least 5db lower then the Pioneer Elite when set to the same Db on both brands. Also I feel the picture and sound quality comes out a lot clearer and crisper on the Pioneer Elite Vs the Marantz in its class. Also, I you can't beat the Class D Amplifier by Pioneer Elite. OMG! All around a solid receiver with Dolby Atmos to boot but that's if you have Dolby Atmos Speakers and movies to experience that true theatre sound like I do. Dolby Atmos is AWESOME! Pioneer Elite you never fail to amaze me. You had me at, Hello!
