    Need information on the Pioneer VSX-D850S reciever. Bought it because it fitted within my budget. I want to know if it is a sound purchase or should it be returned. Was it worth the buy. I want to know pro's and con's. I would also like recommendations for other types of recievers within the $600+ price range.

    I bought the 710s when my other reciever died on me(JVC 7000) and I think the Pioneer sounds great and does a great job of handling everything I throw at it. My friend has a Sony 333ES and my Pioneer sounds better than it I think.

    I think the 850s is a great receiver made even better by the price drop to $399. Local best buy adds have it at that price. Crutchfield is also selling them for $399.
