Conclusions

Pioneer impressed me last year with their receivers, and they did it again this year. In my view, the VSX-32 occupies a sweet spot for value in the receiver lineup. It has features that are very useful today, such as 1080p scaling, Internet Radio, and an iPod/iPhone digital interface, but also has room to grow thanks to 12V triggers and pre-out jacks. The quality of audio and video left me quite pleased to have it in my system, and the performance on the bench was very nice as well. For people that are looking for a receiver recommendation from me, the Pioneer will be one that I don't hesitate to suggest to them.
