  2. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
     I want to control volume on my VSX-70 AVR with a DirecTV remote. I can set this up if the VSX-70 is "receiver 1", but I also have a second Pioneer receiver in the same rack (VSX-D901s). So, I really want to setup the VSX-70 as receiver 2, 3 or 4 so I can control each receiver separately.  ...

     Here's my issue: When watching TV, weather from the cable box or the apple TV, when people speak the sound seams very faint, but the surround sound is loud.  Trying to figure out how not to have to turn the volume every time people are talking and turn it down when people are shooting or...

    Which has better sq? Onkyo review not so good on what hifi but it has bluetooth and wifi which is nice where pioneer doesnt. Pioneer might have better sq and seems to be identical to the Elite VSX-70 hardware wise.

     I'm piecing together a HT system.  I've bought my Polk RTI A5 mains.  I'm using Bose cubes for the surrounds.  Yah, I know, but I own them and they have a high WAF.  Receiver is next, then sub.  Right now I'm using an OLD Sony AVR.  I know enough about what I want in a new AVR to think I'm...

    I just upgraded my entire system. I bought what I feel are high quality components for what you would spend on an entry level Bose or a mid range htib. I wanted to post this in case it may help someone who didn't have $5k or more to spend. Some of my components were purchased used but like new...

    I have an Onkyo SR805 that I am considering replacing. I could use a few more HDMI inputs for one. I am looking at a Pioneer VSX-70. Is that worth it? It looks like a significant drop in wattage…but figured I ask here as to it.

     Hello, Looking to upgrade my receiver to get into this generation of HDMI inputs, 3D capabilities, and 4K upscaling. I've been doing a lot of research on prices etc and found some models I'm pretty interested in that suit my needs, mainly the Pioneer Elite VSX-70 and the Sony STRDN 1040. The...

     I'm looking to replace my old Sony (non-HDMI) receiver with something new.  I pretty much have it narrowed down to the following:   Sony STR-DN1040 Yamaha RX-A730 Onkyo TX-NR626   From what I've read all 3 of these have received some very good reviews.  The knock I have on the Sony is...

     I just set up my VSX-70 and bought the receiver for the purpose of being able to run HDMI out to the TV in my family room and to another in an adjoining room. I can only get the HDMI Out 2 to show video in the other room on my Vizio M550SL and cannot get audio from that TV. Is the Out 2 HDMI...
