What customers say about "Key Specs"
 
Pioneer VSX-934 Receiver 7.2-channel
  • Very good value for money with good quality product. Amazing amp dose everything you need.
  • Great sound quality, extremely easy to setup.
  • Had Pioneer equipment many years before which was very impressive and this has all those good attributes too.
  • Disappointed no instructions on how to set up. No online support.
  • I didn't use the onboard calibration as it was a little off on its measurement and you cannot alter them with the mode turned on.

What customers say about "Features"
 
Pioneer VSX-934 Receiver 7.2-channel
  • Nice AV amp. Good value. Not the easiest to set up.
  • Lovely sound and good 4k images, worked perfectly straight out of the box, simple to set-up, I'm very happy with it.
  • Great 4k upscaling of Blurays. Fantastic sound option. I have this plugged into a 5.1.2 setup and the atmos is rockin the room.
  • Great starter Amp for Home Cinema. Also works in a 5.1 set up as has Virtual DTS and Dolby Atmos too. Recommended.
  • Connected to a Focal Sib Evo Dolby Atmos 5.1.2 package, I found the combination not working.

Pioneer VSX-934 Receiver 7.2-channel
  • Good customisation of HDMI inputs. Has a 3.5 line in. So many dont these days.
  • Works great with an echo input as a result. Works with Tune in and spotify too.
  • Clear sound, and bluetooth connection. VSX 934 is the perfect choice.
  • Installed easily enough after adapting t.v. stand. not sure about the speaker connections sound quality and ease of use is excellent.
  • Bad quality product. I have problems with instruction and online support.
