Pioneer SC68 a class above the rest

By Silky

from Las Vegas

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Cost
  • Quality
  • Sound
  • The Look

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Everyday

    The unit is a cut above the rest it is not your average plug and play unit, if you are a novice read the interactive manual and use the tools that are built in eg MCACC which aids you in setting up your speakers with the environment that you are in.
