        Comments about Pioneer Elite 9.1 Channel 3D Ready AV Home Theater Receiver:

        Moved back to pioneer after a couple denons. The last 3310 died after a couple of years.

        It took a while to get the sound adjusted after
        MCACC, but I am really pleased now.
        I have a 7.1 setup in large room and it does great.

        1) nice power
        2) great ipad/iphone application
        3) great network features. It has even started me back listening to loseless audios.
        4) 9.2 supported. I even added 2 front heights and really like it.
        5) video quality. I run everything thru the avr and it looks better than my other avrs.

        So, now I have a 9.1 setup.

        Cons are minor but know pioneer 'features':
        1) no volume adjustments seen on osd
        2) mcacc doesn't do much with subwoofer. This doesn't hurt me cause my sub. blends in fine.
