2, unable to connect to the internet. I do have a valid IP address from my router, and I am able to ping from my computer, as well as see my computer music files from the rcvr.

and on this, make sure you press the NET button on the remote and select Media Server as the source if you are trying to play files on a PC.


then, you'll need to use a media player, Windows Media Player 11/12, or similar media player/server with DLNA cert. Players like J River, Media Monkey, foobar etc should work fine. you are playing the file using a media player on the PC not the receiver playing them all by itself.


you can directly access files on a USB drive and play them by using the receiver.


suggest you read pages 59 - 63 in your manual






and if you are already doing these things, then you'd need to supply more info to help diagnose this.

Ok, I've gone through the manual and I'm still unable to access the net. I've not tried anything w/the opt-1 or 2 input for the Tivo. Regardless, I can ping the receiver from the computer, the receiver picks up a valid IP, gateway, and DNS addresses. I just keep getting "Server Error" messages.

question... I was able to connect to SiriusXM through the computer/Pioneer link, but I still cannot do Pandora. IN order to do pandora, do I need an account that I pay for or will a free account work?

A free account is all you need. If you want no commercials and a higher quality, then you can upgrade to Pandora One.

You will not get higher quality on Pandora One account on any devices. That is desktop PC only feature. All AVRs are limited to 128kbps max. Free account has a limitation on how many hours you can listen to each month IIRC.

It's a crazy world where my Denon AVR 1913 plays 320k MP3.s off of my local network. Its obviously not limited to 128kbps...

It doesn't matter what fancy AVR you have. Pandora server will only send 128kbps songs to you. It has been discussed here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1510366/why-does-denon-limit-the-built-in-pandora-to-128kbs-bad-if-youre-a-pandora-one-customer

I have my sc 1527 in the basement theatre room, set up as a 5.1 with zone 2 playing in my shower. I would like to send a preamp signal out to my Sony stereo upstairs so I can listen to the Pioneers internet radio stations upstairs. Where can I pull a signal from this amp to send a signal upstairs via rca cables. I tried the DVR out ports and all I can recieve upstairs is fm radio. I would really like to hear internet radio and USB signals on the receiver upstairs. Any ideas on how to configure/wire this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know the pioneer elites have a feature called Advanced Sound Retriever which restores WMA/MP3/AAC and network content such as pandora that are compressed thus improving the overall sound which they say is equal to or greater than CD quality which is about 320 Kbps. I can definitely hear the difference when the feature is turned on vs off.


[...] For a video on this feature go to youtube and type Pioneer AV receivers - Auto Sound Retriever

That's not the point. The point is even if you paid Pandora One subscription to get a higher quality stream, you won't get it. Imagine if you do get 192kbps stream vs 128kbps stream you get now. Any post processing will sure make it sounds better than the 128kbps version.


I've tried Sound Retriever and it's so so IMO. It is like watching a standard definition DVD upscale to 1080p. It is slightly better but it will not make it anywhere near watch a 1080p Blu Ray movie.

It may not be the point your looking for, but it still does make the sound better than without it. You feel it's so and so, but I can clearly hear a difference. Either way too each his own, but I'm glad it's an option that I have rather than nothing.

If the 1527-k is only 130x9 watt , why does it come out of he box with a sticker that says "Class D 170x9 watt"


Also does this unit do Bi Amping ?

It means that depending on your speakers whether they be 6 ohm 8ohm that will determine how many watts the system will give you

Yes, but you're comparing apples and oranges. The SRS restores dynamic range, but it cannot restore what is lost by the low bit rate. Having said that, Pandora sounds pretty good to me no matter where I play it. In my setup, I don't play Pandora from the Pioneer - I play it from my Blu-ray player (OPPO). Much better UI. And it's probably not going through SRS when I do that, but it sounds fine to me (and I'm an ex-recording engineer.)
