While signed in to my Amazon account I noticed that this receiver has a 20% coupon checkmark available. (Oddly, going to the same product page in a browser while not signed in did not give the coupon option.)

Hopefully it helps someone. I believe this is functionally identical to the Onkyo TX-RZ830.

Almost identical to the Onkyo TX-RZ830, with minor differences: this one isn't THX-certified, and this one seemingly has a better (at the very least, different) auto speaker-calibration system. Also, different remote. One review mentioned it not working with Pioneer's app, but that has probably changed, since it's been out for a year now. The hardware under the hood is probably identical, since Onkyo now owns Pioneer.

I was hoping to pick up a TX-RZ830 during Prime Day to replace my aging TX-NR616, which has been my loyal home theater companion for almost 8 years now; while I'd have preferred the Onkyo, simply since I've been using their receivers since I started buying separate HT components, this was my second choice. I hesitated for maybe 30 seconds before placing my order.

... Now if only Fluance would drop the price on their Signature Bipolars, so I could add those for a full 7.2.4 setup, this would be the best Prime Day yet.

I have this receiver, it is fantastic for the price. Bought an SC-LX701 to compare head to head and I returned the SC-LX701 and kept the SX-LX503. The only downside is that you cannot adjust crossover individually per speaker, this is not an issue for me however as I xover everything @ 100Hz and let my 12" sub handle all LFE below that (even though I have large speakers which can go significantly below 100Hz).

Yes, I finally hooked mine up this weekend. I ran the surround back channels through an old Denon receiver. Pretty sweet rig

What are the main reasons you guys would go for 503, rather than 303? I see both of them are identical except pre-amp and little higher output. Any other reasons?

I have this receiver, it has trouble decoding ATMOS signal from Apple TV 4K. I contacted Pioneer and they said they cannot reproduce the issue on their end, meanwhile I've tried two different Apple TV 4K with same result.

Decent price... A4L has it for $460 shipped (refurb) w/ the same 1 year warranty.

https://www.accessories4less.com/...ver/1.html

I think I'm going to wait for 11.2 to drop sub-$400.

Thanks OP Smilie

I plan to use the pre-outs to go full 7.2.4. That's my main reason.

I had same 20% off coupon using my account this morning as well and only on this given model, however i had been looking at it as i already have 1 of them and was looking to purchase a 2nd. I haven't had any issues with using it via the app. The app isn't as user friendly as the Yamaha app for those using Yamaha equipment but airplay works without any issues and I can have same source via iTunes playing through both this pioneer as well as Yamaha receivers with no delay, etc.

I haven't had any Atmos issues yet on my 503. I've only had it up and running for about 45 days so far.

I think this one has a global crossover while RZ830 can set crossover for individual channel.

I currently own the 701, that I buy from frys for 550. What did you like more about the 503?
