  1. This pioneer qx also got 2 aux,2 phono,nice wide open luxurious display,fancy as well,built like a tank,nearly broke my back carrying this thing.a keeper

  2. this receiver is a fantastic pre-amp. It has 10 total inputs counting the two phono inputs. Though not much power, you can always pre-out to a bigger receiver or power amp and use it for it’s ample inputs.

  3. Grew up with cranking one purchased in Japan by my dad. We had six of the old Pioneer CS-06 Omnidirectional round speakers setup in a multizone system throughout the house.

  4. I have one and the sound is on another level. Crisp highs and deep lows! I have it playing through some Bose 301 speakers with zero fatigue. Clean as a whistle visually and to the ears!
