    do they ever have a 9.2 avr on sale at these prices?

  • +2 votes

    Thanks OP…ordered one to replace my 8 yr old Yamaha in the HT :)

    Full price shipped to Perth was $628.68 AUD

  •  

    Great find OP. Any suggestions for a good speaker set to compliment this. It does need to be compact for a medium size (3.5X4m) room.

  •  

    For the 1130 model at [Kogan] $799 plus delivery (https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/pioneer-72-channel-av-receiver-...)

    Apparently were 40% off in Jan sales at JBHiFi and are, apart from minor differences, a Onkyo Nr656.

  •  

    This might be an odd question to ask, but using the inbuilt network functions and my Sony KD55X8500C, is it possible to play the televisions audio wirelessly or using bluetooth from this amplifier? Sort of like how you could use bluetooth to stream your phones music to the amplifier?

    •  

      I'm guessing you have a wall mounted tv?

      You could squeeze a 3.5mm to Bluetooth adapter behind the tv, power it via the tv's usb, then pair it with the amplifier. Although not sure how reliable it would be, and it would only be stereo of course.

        My current setup has the television no where near my home theater system. The television itself has bluetooth capability but does not support wireless headphones, so I am unsure if the bluetooth that this receiver uses would work with it.

    If this is the German model won't it expect a different voltage/frequency input power? Some appliances you can get away with just bunging on an Australian plug adapter, but with other more-sensitive equipment that's a recipe for disaster, and I'd say this Amp qualifies

      Looks like it is 120 volts

      It's quite common to import receivers and amplifiers from Europe, due to good deals, cheaper shipping, and in most cases, correct power supplies.

      Taking a look at the spec sheet for this model from the European website, http://www.pioneer-audiovisual.eu/sites/default/files/datash... it's listed as "Power Requirements: AC 220-240 V, 50/60 Hz" So it should be good for AU usage.

      •  

        my denon from Germany was 240V …………works sweet.

        These amps have transformers and full wave rectifiers in the power supply so no issues with frequency either.

      Why? The EU is 230V 50Hz and Australia is 230V 50Hz so what exactly is the problem? It's not rocket science.

      •  

        They rectify the transformer voltage to DC …..So frequency usno issue ….. Also with the 220 vs 240 ….They build on tollereances to cater for difference from sub stations. The only big differences are 220 vs 110 units as they save costs by making 110v specific transformers ……

    Previously posted at a slightly better price a few months ago. Possibly just currency fluctuation.

    Great sound and lots of connectivity. Recommended and upvoted (even at a slightly higher AUD price)

      Amazon UK stopped shipping the unit to AU a few weeks after my post on Feb 2. Exchange rate then was £1 to AU$1.62 compared to AU$1.70 today.

    HDMI 2.1 is being finalised this year. TV's are finally getting G-sync / FreeSync.
    Think about it before buying a TV / Amp.

    Xbox One Scorpio has it, really could be a great piece of technology.
    If you don't NEED something now, I'd say mid 2018 would be a great time for a TV / Amp / Console upgrade.

    •  

      Thanks for the tip!

    •  

      Thanks for the advice. Will look into this.

      My TV is from 2008.
      I have a PS3 and my PC is from 2010.

      Waited this long, what's another year?

    • +2 votes

      At this rate I'll just give up buying an amp. Always takes ages for the newer hdmi spec to trickle down to the mid range models too, which will probably be 2019 by then

  •  

    Apparently this model is capable of playing all 9.1 channels simultaneously when using dts:x and atmos according to pioneer technology support in Australia.

    Can anyone confirm?

    • +1 vote

      Unfortunately no. It is only limited to 7 channels or less that is switchable in the settings. Ie 5.2.2, 5.2 Biamp or 7.2. Normally the higher end receivers caters for extra channels (e.g. the LX series that has 9.2 and also an option of 11.2 via the 2 channel pre outs). Note that this receiver has line outs for Zone 2 and not pre outs apart from subwoofer. Please download the manual online and you will see the speaker configuration.
      If you are after a Pioneer 9.2 then you will either have to get an older LX59 or LX701. I have 2 LX amps and I am very happy with them FYI.
      Cheers

    On the Amazon picture through the link the AVR has 120V rating. Does anyone have proof this is 240V?

      in Europe they don't have 120V…………………

      Why would they sell 115V 60Hz appliances into the EU which is 230V 50Hz? Australia is also 230V 50Hz.

    Thanks, nice find OP :-)

    Man…. we get so ripped off here in Australia :(.

    JB Hifi selling this exact amp for $1400, then delivery on top.
    https://www.jbhifi.com.au/tv-home-entertainment/home-theatre...

    OP's deal above looks like it's expired, but current price of $444.99 Euros is still less than half the price of the amp in Australian dollars (around $635)… even after you include delivery as well!

    I can't wait for Amazon to start trading proper here in Australia. Then the Gerry Harvey's can go get stuffed for good!

    • +2 votes

      Unless Amazon are stupid enough to then just price slightly under the retailers here. Which would mean we all still buy from the overseas Amazon stores. Whats the chance of them geo blocking the other Amazon stores, via just not shipping to Aus, to force us to buy from the local Amazon??

      •  

        Latest news story quoting the guy setting them up in Australia quoting him saying that they "were going to destroy Australian retail", and that "your profit is our opportunity" (in regards to how expensive our retailers are).

        Apparently they are aiming at cheapest competitors, and then 30% off their pricing. Their market strategy is to decimate The Harvey Norman's of this country :).

        I for one welcome our new alien overlords ;).

  •  

    I want something like this but just for 2 speakers, music and TV output. Any recommendations for a stereo network receiver with Airplay, Spotify, Google Cast etc?

  •  

    Ordered this amp. Was waiting for a good deal. Have a 5.1 setup with zone 2 going to backyard. Any suggestions on upgrading to 7.1.2, which speakers to consider for Atmos and side surround.

  •  

    Can't praise Amazon's customer service enough. Wanted to add an Atmos speaker to the order after placing, requested cancellation so I could replace and they could not cancel it in time, as Goodwill they refunded my shipping and gave free express shipping on the speakers. Can't wait for Amazon to come here.

  •  

    Onkyo skh-410 ATMOS. Will mount these above the front speakers to work as height speakers.

  •  

    Did anyone else order this receiver. I placed.order on 21st and says delivery wont be till 15 May, is that normal?
