SOLD (Pioneer) Elite VSX-55TXi 7.1 audiophile receiver THX

Postby VEFF on Sat Apr 15, 2006 2:48 am


I have a Pioneer Elite VSX-55TXi receiver for sale (just got another Elite model, so I need to sell one).

It works flawlessly and is in excellent physical condition.
EDIT: While taking photos for my auction, I noticed that it does have some minor scratches (no dings, no dents, no cracks) on the right side, which someone unfortunately decided to cover with a black marker pen, which actually makes it look worse, since the color is not a match.
Price lowered to $599.
I bought it mfr. refurbished about 8 months ago and it looks as good as new.
Someone must have changed their mind and returned it to the store shortly after buying it, because there are no signs of use.

I have used it for 20 hours or so, since I've been in another room most of the time.

It has a ton of surround / decoding formats:

USB connection for PC audio files playback
iLink connection for SACD / DVD Audio from compatible iLink-equipped
DVD players.

It comes with the following accessories:

Owner's manual
Setup mic (allows for AUTOMATIC accoustic calibration that measures
speaker distances and calibrates the system for you)
Original Pioneer LCD learning remote

Asking $625 + shipping.
EDIT: Lowered to $599 for covered scratch marks on right side.
The receiver will be well-packed and fully insured for peace of mind.
For comparison purposes, another one, with some scratches and missing the $34 setup mic, sold for $662 + shipping on eBay recently.

Orig MSRP is $1,700

It weighs about 42 lbs out of the box, so it is a lot heavier than most mass-market receivers.

Some highlights include:
- Dual Motorola 48 Bit Processing

- THX Select

- phono preamp built-in; this is rarely included these days! (use your turntable!)

- 8 channel pre-outs (so you can use this receiver as a processor only if you ever decide to get a high end power amplifer)

- Multi-channel in (8 channels) for SACD and DVD-Audio
- Construction
Front Panel: Aluminum
Chassis: Double Layer


- MCACC (Multi Channel Acoustic Calibration) to calibrate speaker settings, among others.

- Pioneer LCD learning remote

- Elegant black finish

Too many features to list; check specs here >>

and review >>

The Elite line is Pioneer's high end line and VSX-55TXi is one of the better models in that line-up; in fact the newer Elite models (VSX-74TXVi) weigh less than the 55TXi!!!
