This doesn't seem like a bad peice of kit for the money. It's 7.1, front USB for your wma/mp3's plus other reasonable specs. Good amp for the cash! Just google it to see the prices elsewhere.
Yes, I know it hasn't an HDMI connection but it has two components.
Please note, you do need to buy speakers!
Feel free to hurl abuse in the normal HUKD fashion ;)
I love you really!

Welcome the new arrival of the Pioneer VSX817 AV Receiver at a stonking NEW LOW PRICE.
This little amp is jam packed with connections and features that will live up to the usual standard from Pioneer.
Amplified and optimised AV precision in your home
The 817 includes the unique MCACC system, which stands for Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration. At the touch of a button, the MCACC will optimally tune the amplifier to the size of your living room space and speaker placement. The result sounds like a professional recording engineer has fine-tuned your system.
Greater flexibility in your speaker placement
By simply placing your speakers directly beside your TV screen and activating the unique Front Stage Surround Advance feature, you can experience a virtual surround sound environment. The benefit here is that you dont have to worry about routing speaker cables around your room; your speakers can be placed up front.
Crystal audio; even from compressed files
The 817 includes a USB host on the front which means you can access compressed audio files. And with our unique Sound Retriever technology (which up-converts compressed audio to CD-quality audio), you are guaranteed high-quality sound.
