Conclusions

Pioneer SC27 Receiver

The Pioneer SC-27 was, like every product, not without it's quirks. I do wish the remote had buttons for each individual HDMI input instead of a single button to rotate between them, as well as a better way to navigate the otherwise great media streaming feature, and I occasionally lost the audio from my TiVo after I would fast forward, but it was a random bug and could easily be the fault of the TiVo. However, I was very impressed with the sound quality of the Class D amps, with how much the MCACC room calibration added, and with how well the receiver performed overall. Since almost all of the things that I didn't love about the receiver are easily fixable by Pioneer, it is certainly a unit that I think is worth listening to.
