i recomend the pioneer because i had a ulcer trying to get a panasonic sada10n reciever fixed this past spring, brand new unit never fixed took 8 months to finaly get a refund-very bad customer service.

also look at what ohm they rate power-panasonic uses 6ohm so they show a bigger number(8ohm at 100 watts= 150 watts at 6ohm), at least they did on my unit-dont know about pioneer.

the pioneer super tuner used to be the best deal in car audio, if they build recievers the same way they should be good.

what about yamaha or jvc?

i would find a unit with preouts if you can, that way you can add better quality amps down the road- the amps in a all in one unit share a lot of parts so you dont get the highest quality sound.

what are your speakers

I just made a similar choice. Pioneer VSX-811s or the Panasonic HK-100. In the end I went with the Pioneer - fully assignable digital inputs, a learning remote, a full set of pre-outs and aestethics helped me make my decision. Sure we're talking entry level units here but I am very happy with choice. It is an excellent reciever fo the price and I couldn't find much in my area to compete on a features/quality/price basis.

I was looking at the Panny he100 and the Pioneer and I went with the Pioneer vsx-d811s.


Reason were that the Pioneer had Binding posts instead of spring clips(the panny he200 has binding posts, the 100 that I was looking at did not), assignable digital inputs, clean front panel, perceived build quality and it sounded better to my ears in a test and the price was right.


Either one is a very nice receiver and you'll like either one. I just liked the Pioneer a little better.
