4.0 out of 5 stars Nice "VALUE-STARTER" System. 24 October 2013
By USMC Combat Vet - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
To begin with, I have a high end Yamaha Receiver, a "sort of" high end Marantz receiver and now this. For any apartment or even a home that just wants to be able to enjoy true surround sound and not get crazy spending money, this is great. No, it doesn't rip down walls with sheer power or have the extra HDMI ports I personally need to run ALL my devices. But it has all ANYONE needs to honestly enjoy decent sound and bring movies and music to life. If a person isn't an audiophile or sound snob, this is just fine for general use until you feel a need to move up to more features and better sound.

I instantly placed this in the master bedroom to power my old PS3 & XBOX, ROKU box and my prized Magnavox MDR533H/F7 HDD/DVD Recorder. This works just fine for those needs and allows me to use my main systems for my new (on order) XBOX One and new PS4 for after the holiday season. I like this SO much (given the price) that I have actually decided that once my now 12+ years old HUGE Polk Audio speakers bite the dust, I am going to buy a tiny compact "matched" set of speakers more in this very small (but efficient) size. This system takes up very little space, sounds fine and costs so little, that it is actually changing my mind somewhat about the need to spend a fortune on A/V equipment when like computers, advances are coming at a more rapid rate and I no longer see the need to break the bank when so much new product is coming so fast.

----I rate these a solid 5 for price.
----I rate then a 3+ on sound.
----I rate these a 3 on features
----Overall I give this a well deserved 4 stars over all. I will add to the review with time and experience as well as reliability of this system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very, Very Pleased with this System. 4 November 2013
By NyReckDiver - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I recently had one of the most horrible product experiences with thePanasonic SC-HTB770 3.1-Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer. The experience was so bad, I was hesitant to even try another system to be honest. However, I had to replace the Panasonic junk, so I gave it a shot. And I am glad I did.

The Pioneer is a perfect system in my opinion, albeit not a state of the art system that would satisfy the most hardcore audiophile. It is probably best classified as an entry level system lacking advanced features such as networking or a hard Ipod/Iphone dock though it does play music from USB drives. The unit comes with all the standard AV connections and 4 HDMI as well as an optical out. These should be enough to make most people happy. The remote control is near perfect. The unit handles all Dolby formats as well as 3D (which, I have no experience with). The remote speakers also come with mounting brackets though I read some literature on the Pioneer website that said it did not; mine did. The unit also has "Eco Mode" which I found works very well. However, I found no way to by-pass this energy saving mode and some people may not like this.

The sound from this unit fills a very large room in my house, which really surprised me since I heard many bad things about "cubed speakers." It is a large room with very high cathedral ceilings with a cat walk that runs through it. Definitely better than any sound bar I have ever used including the Boston Acoustics TVee Model 30 Sound System with Sleek Sound Bar and Wireless Subwoofer (Black), which I thought was good. I found the system reliable and there was no delay in the sound like in some units.

I definitely recommend this system at the lower prices I have seen through Amazon (not another seller).

5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice low cost solution for your audio needs! 28 November 2013
By Pecos Bill - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This is a great home theater system for a relatively low cost. I have an Onkyo receiver that I use in a different room that cost a good deal more and the main difference between them is not the features or the sound but the number of inputs: this Pioneer model costs a lot less and simply has fewer inputs. Which should be fine for you as long as you don't have too many sources and they are all HDMI or SPDIF.

For TV, there's 4 HDMI in, 1 optical in and 3 standard (red/white/yellow) inputs. There are NO composite inputs so be warned! If you need composite in you'll need to buy a converter box to go from composite to HDMI....or get a different receiver that offers composite inputs. (My Onkyo has 3 composite inputs in addition to the HDMI but then, it also cost a lot more, so pick your poison.)

Sound-wise, it's great. I use it in a smaller computer/entertainment room and it sounds great. There are options to do speaker-fill to convert stereo to use all speakers and otherwise the controls are standard. I had more than enough wire for the small room but if you're doing a large room you may need more wire (that's pretty typical for boxed stereos -- they give you enough wire to handle "typical" setups. Your milage may vary.)

There's also inputs for AM/FM radio antennas (included) and CD/coax so really the only thing missing here is composite inputs. Most everything produced in the last 5 years is HDMI anyway, but check your needs. (I have my computer hooked up through the SPDIF/optical channel, which works out fine.)

Oh, and if you've never had a home theater system, you are definitely missing out. All movies these days have awesome 5.1 sound and you're missing the full effect if you're still using plain old stereo!

4.0 out of 5 stars Better Than Entry-Level, But Just Below Stellar. Pioneer HTP 072 AV System: A Critical Review. 18 November 2013
By Andre Lawrence - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Although marketed as an "Entry Level" system, the "HTP 072" 5.1 surround system is anything but.

With all of the features that you'd expect from a system that came out this year, this system has it all:

+ 100w/ channel
+ 4K HD (aka 2x 1080)
+ 3D- compatible
+ iOS connectors
+ "Eco Mode"
+ stream multi-lossy format compatible (mp3, wma, aac)

The sound on this is, as Pioneer products have always been, powerful.
Although not as crisp and pristine as the Marantz 1504, it is much more powerful.

There's only one thing that I find an annoying drawback: Pioneer opted to support the A/V receiver with some low-end accessories. The speaker wires are barely pass as acceptable.

Before I tested out the supplied speakers, I attached the main AV unit to Yamaha's NS-SP1800 speaker set along with MediaBridge's 16-gauge speaker wire. There's no comparison. The true fidelity of the Pioneer shines through the Yamaha speakers and the 16-gauge speaker wire.

At $400, the HTP 072 sits at the higher end of the moderately priced home theater systems. You can actually find many of last year's higher end models with most of the same features as this system for about $50-$275 (minus this year's bells and whistles, of course)... and, that's what makes it so disappointing: a quality receiver and lower level speaker and budget wiring.

If you were just to buy the receiver or if you have a great pair of speakers like the Yamaha and just upgrade by the piece, this becomes a stellar, stellar home theater system that you won't need to replace for at least 7 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Value System from a Proven Name 15 November 2013
By Michael Yovkovich - Published on Amazon.com
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
While this offering from Pioneer may not have all the bells and whistles of other higher priced offerings (networking capabilities, bluetooth, wireless rear speakers, etc.), it does make up for it with the most important feature of an audio system, sound quality. I've always had great experiences with Pioneer speakers and this home theater system has continued that trend. The sound quality is very impressive as the speakers provide crisp sharps and the subwooofer adds a wonderful mix of bass. I've been enjoying these speakers for the past few weeks and have been very impressed with the surround capabilities provided by this system as my viewing choices have included a wide range from football games to action/adventure movies. In terms of the set-up, it would have made it much easier on my if the rear speakers had a wireless transponder but for this price point, you have to accept the trade-off. Overall, if you can maneuver the rear speaker cables and not have the wires be an issue in your living room, this is a great sound system for a very reasonable price.
