Pioneer VSX-4950S Stereo/Surround Receiver -100 Watts/Ch RMS, Ph
Pioneer VSX-4950S Stereo/Surround Receiver 100 Watts/ch RMS in Stereo Mode Dolby Pro Logic / Dolby 3D / Studio / Simulated modes
Excellent cosmetic condition, excellent sounding receiver ! The Pioneer sound quality from this receiver will not disappoint in the least ! Beautiful gold accents of several of the push buttons .
Too many vintage receivers have been classified as " redundant" or obsolete due to the fact that they are not current and inclusive of the the latest video switching capabilities such as HDMI, 4K, etc ,etc This in itself has proven to be the Achilles Heel (Hell?) of modern day equipment primarily due to the introduction of the HDMI/DSP processing board and the disappointing history of premature failures .
When ever this board failed , it would take out the necessary audio controls as well as the video features. NO tone , no surround , etc,etc rendering the receiver mostly useless . These "redundant or obsolete receivers" like the VSX-4950S don't have this vulnerability or Achilles Heel ! They are primarily designed for audio use with NO DSP board vulnerability !! Too many of the later Pioneer, Onkyo,etc receivers had endured this disastrous HDMI/DSP board failure and may have been a deciding factor in Pioneer becoming a subsiduary of Onkyo Corp on March 2, 2015
MY suggestion ... Keep your audio needs separate from your video needs if you are looking for a long service life from either ! Far easier to upgrade your video needs without having to sacrifice an audio section that doesn't need any upgrading !
