This receiver is in as-new condition and comes with both remotes.

This is from an online review:

"Today, Pioneer Elite brings seven channels of amplification to the $1,500 VSX-84TXSi A/V receiver, a receiver crammed with niceties (like a phono stage – hooorah!). But it's not just another trip down Feature Creep Boulevard. It's a breath of fresh air.

Yes, this Pioneer Elite is feature-rich eye candy, but we're all about power and nuance here. The owner manual says the VSX-84TXSi's seven amplified channels are each capable of 140-watts with less than .09% distortion into an 8 ohm load. But there is no mention of their abilities into lower impedances. My Martin Logan Prodigy (main L/R) and Request (surrounds) speakers run more like 4-ohm speakers (dipping to 1-ohm at 20 kHz), but I never heard the Pioneer strain from the load. About a month into the review I read in the manual how you can optimize the amps for 6-ohm loads (finding buried tidbits in equipment manuals is as gratifying as finding Easter Eggs on DVDs!), and I did just that. I honestly can't say I heard a difference, though I wouldn't be surprised if the receiver measures better when matched to the load.
