        Comments about Pioneer Elite Black 7.1 Channel Multi-Zone Networked AV Receiver:

        It sounds much better than the Onkyo I replaced. Very impressive in my home theater with projector. Sadest remote I've seen in years- all buttons the same, no backlight. requires glasses and a flashlight. I guess they don't think you will be using it.

              I agree, great for audiophile types. Sounds great driving a pair of B&W 685's in a 2 channel setup. Plenty of features. Quality look and feel.
