    Just bought a Pioneer VSX-523-K A/V receiver to replace a Sony HTIB because we needed HDMI inputs into our sound system. Except the subwoofer I'm using the HTIB speakers, which are labeled 3 ohm impedance. I realize that will cause damage to the receiver so I plan to change those out ASAP. My...

    I have a brand new VSX-523K hooked up to a projector with HDMI. I'm running a PS3 and a Comcast HD box both through HDMI to the receiver. It is connected to a 5 speaker system with a subwoofer. Some shows come across sounding perfect - others come across sounding like they're at the bottom of a...

    Hi. I currently have Klipsch quintet speakers (75w centre and 50w front and surround) and was wondering if they would match either the pioneer vsx523 or the onkyo txsr313. I've been told denon 1612 would be best but it's very hard to find one, so have also been recommended the pioneer or...

     My receiver that is less than 2 months old has been working fine. All of a sudden, I lost sound when watching TV via the SAT/CBL HDMI input. I immediately noticed the H in the display was now an A. Eventually, I lost the video signal (FYI, my receiver outputs to a projector via HDMI cable). So...

     Matched with a pair of Focal chorus 705.   Witch one of these will have the best sound quality, and clearer sound, specially at not very loud volume (i dont want to hear noise)   Thanks you,   and   Merry Christmas

    It doesn't have to be 5.1, a solid 2.1 will do. I'm planning on adding a sub in the future so I will need a sub out. It'll be mainly used for gaming and some music listening with my Pioneer BS21's. I'm leaning towards the VSX-523 that Best Buy currently has for $179 but I'm open to...

    My current Craigslist receiver (purchased three years ago) a very old VSX-454, is having connectivity issues. It is time to step into the modern age and into an entry level 5.1 HDMI capable receiver. I would like to spend no more than $225 for a basic unit. I am currently driving two older 100w...

     I need someone's advice. I would like to only setup the front speakers and sub woofer.  Does this receiver support that configuration and what setting should I use?  What if I don't even use a sub woofer? Thank you for your help.
