      Good, but...

      This receiver is pretty good at it's job. Sounds are clear and decent when using good source material like 4k uhd Blu-ray. The problem with this receiver(and I now see it mentioned by others). It is constantly clicking during normal tv watching. Using Comcast and a x1 cable box. This thing clicks when a show starts/ends. It clicks during many different commercials. Pause, fast forward, time jumping on DVR...it clicks. These are are loud clicking noises of the amp switching sound modes I guess, but it sucks and I have never had an amp do this(probably 10+ in my life so far, maybe 1 click as they turned on). You can sort of get used to it, but be very aware that if you buy this and watch a lot of DVR content...it will click and pop like a an old telegraph. The only reprieve is watch Titanic or Avatar, great movies and for 3 hours...NO CLICKING! To Best Buy, I originally wanted to buy the Sony 1080 receiver, but store employees talked me into this receiver being better. At the time it was $80 cheaper and it does have a better warranty (3 year vs Sony 1 year) and since I have had good pioneers in the past...I fell for the sales pitch. But, now I am past the return window and have had time to live with the unit...I WISH I COULD RETURN IT and buy the Sony I probably should have bought in the first place. Overall, good for movies, skip it for tv watching.

      Big bang for the buck

      Wow... When I bought this unit it was on sale, and it just can't be beat for the price. This is my first "big boy" system, upgrading from a basic 5.1 soundbar setup. After extensive research, I decided to upgrade for the greater decoding capabilities, as my old setup just had DD and DTS 2ch. I found this unit on sale at my local Best Buy for nearly $100 less than the comparable Denon and Onkyo receivers. My "new" setup consists of this receiver with an old 1st Gen. Polk SurroundBar I found in my parents' storage unit. I added new Polk TL2's for the surround back channels and a Polk 11" subwoofer. Everything's running at an 8ohm load. While the left and right surrounds are simulated by the SurroundBar setup, this is where the Pioneer receiver shines. It has breathed new life into this dated SurroundBar. It really packs a wallop, too. While the unit is rated at 80w/ch at 8ohms, this rating says little to nothing about decibel output. The space I have is fairly small, however, so I can't say how it would perform in a larger space. The Dolby Surround and DTS Neural: X upsampling seem to vary by input source, but both sound just awesome coming through the receiver and speakers. The differences between the two definitely seem to say more about the input source and encoding/decoding than about the unit itself. The automatic calibration feature is also great, and makes this unit a great option for first-timers and those who are not particularly tech-savvy. The automatic calibration has required very minimal tweaking, and most people probably wouldn't need to make any adjustments one way or another. Another awesome feature is the built in analog to HDMI up-conversion and 1080p-4K HDMI-HDMI upscaling. The former is especially handy, since I can play all of my retro game consoles on my TV, which has no analog inputs. While the 1080p-4K upsampling from my current generation consoles is subtle, it's certainly noticeable. My bookshelf back surrounds are small enough to position as down-firing speakers for a 5.1.2 Atmos setup, but I haven't had an opportunity to play or watch any titles with native Atmos or DTS:X just yet. All in all this was a great buy, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an upgrade or a first receiver.

      Does Way More Than I Thought, or Expected

      I recently bought this receiver when it was on sale for $300 while purchasing a newer TV to go with it. I had recently made the decision to skip out on a sound bar and opt for a receiver with a simple 2.1 setup. With only needing a 2.1 setup, obviously I didn't need much out of a receiver. I was going to go with a simple 5.1 Denon, but I saw this receiver was on sale for less so I figured, why not? This was probably the best decision I made. This receiver has completely blown away my expectations for it. All HDMI ports are able to handle 4K HDR and HDCP 2.2 content, so no sacrifice there (other than 4 HDMI In ports, which, to some people may need to be a sacrifice), and the HDMI Out is able to do ARC flawlessly. Have had no issues with ARC ever since I've got this thing up and running. I thought a nice touch on this receiver was the Phono input, which is great because it means I no longer have to use a preamp with my turntable, bonus points!. I'd have to say the absolute highlight of this receiver that has blown my expectations the most is the fact that it does AirPlay. I can pick a song on my phone and tell it to stream to the receiver. 2 seconds later it's playing out of my audio setup. It may sound simple, but it's really cool! And also great because now I no longer need to move my bluetooth speaker from room to room and can just keep it in one place. In all honesty, this receiver has done a tremendous job at bringing all of my living room pieces together. I like to think of the TV as the President, the figurehead of the entertainment setup. But then this receiver is the Chief of Staff, the guy in the background that's doing all the grunt work you throw at it and making sure everything works smoothly. I can't recommend this receiver enough, well done Pioneer.

      2017 Pioneer LX102

      Overall a good receiver with a lot of features for the price. All 4 of the HDMI terminals support 4K, BT.2020, and HDCP 2.2 for 4K needs (some receivers I looked at only 3 of the 4-5 HDMI were compliant). Setup was pretty easy, but the ARC / HDMI CEC seems a little glitchy, when I have it turned on the TV signal cuts out, so I have to turn CEC off to watch TV without the receiver on (I have a nice sound bar so don't always watch TV in surround). My main gripe is that when watching a movie the receiver does not show the audio format playing on the main display, you have to use the ' I ' button on the remote and is shows on a HUD on the TV and the main display, then switches back to what input the receiver is on. IMHO - when watching a movie the TV shows the picture, the receiver is mainly responsible for the sound, so I want the main display to show ATMOS, Dolby True HD, ect.

      Decent Sound but freezes

      I bought this receiver for the sale price of $300, the sound was good and setup was great. The user interface was easy-to-use and looked good. I felt that the unit did not utilizes it's power efficiently and is slow to react when using CEC through tv remote. And at times when I switch the input on my TV and when I go back to using the arc sound output from my TV the sound would go out and not come back until I unplugged the unit for 30 seconds and then plug it back in. It happened everytime i switch the input from hdmi input 1 which was the arc (reciever input) back to the tv input on reciever. i returned it for the yamaha aventage rx A670 that was on sale for $378. the yamaha was smother operating and quicker to turn on and off when using cec. had a less appealing interface, but delivers power better despite the similar specs. they both have the same 3 years warranty also. the yamaha unit is superior to the pioneer

      Great Receiver Upgrade

      I needed to upgrade my receiver to play 4K content, so I got this one on Black Friday. Easy setup and amazing results after using it for a couple of days now. The size of the receiver seems a bit a big, but I just care that it processes my 4K content correctly. My only gripe is how the speaker wires connect to the receiver in the back. You need to unscrew the knob to allow the speaker wires to connect to the receiver. But the post that the knob sits on makes it hard to pass the wire through to the other end. I'm not sure if the wire needs to go out through the opposite end, or if it just needs to sit inside next to the post. Also, I made the wires go into the top of the knob instead of going into the bottom (like the picture guide). Going into the bottom of the knob was difficult because I wasn't able to turn the receiver sideways while I was connecting everything. It also makes random "click" sounds during its operation, but I figured it was from the machine doing its magic inside. Overall, it was a great purchase, and I'm happy with its performance so far.

      Sorry but this is no pioneer elite! It's a rebadged vsx! It just does not sound that great to my ears and there are not enough adjustments in the menu for sound imo. The bass to sub is too boomy and the overall presentation of sound is just too forced, losing subtle details. Also, this unit had a very hard time communicating through hdmi to other components and I'm using the very latest hdmi premium certified cables. The screen would at times upon turn on would be multi colored snow with no picture! I had enuf and returned it for the Sony dn 1080, no problems with that one at all! Like I said I wanted to like this but pioneer is just not the same to me any more....

      Decent AVR

      I purchased this on sale for $349. For that price it is a very good AVR. I was expecting the Pioneer iControl AV5 app to work with the LX102 but it does not. You can look on the Pioneer website for compatibility. It does however work with the Pioneer remote app which is ok. The best feature is the equalizer which makes a huge difference. You can also make other adjustments for each individual speaker. This AVR is the easiest piece of electronics I ever set up. It did everything it had to. The remote is very simple which is a welcome change to my 12 year old Pioneer with a thousand buttons. I am running 2 Def Tech SM55's and with the EQ they sound amazing. Even watching movies with only 2 channels on Dolby Stereo is very satisfying. The power the Pioneer produces is clean with no distortion. The unit does run a little warm, but this is normal for an AVR in this class. Overall this is a good solid receiver for the price.
