              Comments about Pioneer Elite Black 7.2 Channel Multi-Zone Networked AV Receiver:

              Can't say much about this product because it is too difficult to set up. Right now I am only using the receiver to listen to TV through my Bose speakers. Now I have to use 2 remotes (SAT and receiver) Had to go out and buy cables- should have included a shopping list so I would know which ones to buy. Guess I'll have to pay someone to hook it up. Not happy

                      I bought this product to power my living room and my outdoor patio. Using the phone application I on my Android phone I can turn on the zone 2 outside and select the source I want to listen to. The living room can be doing something different.

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Working with the sales staff was a great experience. They were helpful and saved me money.
