This isn't good for phono, you'll still need a pre-amp:
Quote :
The Pioneer generously expands on its integrated AM/FM tuner and Bluetooth connectivity with four analogue RCA inputs – labelled 'CD', 'Network', 'Line 1' and 'Line 2 – for, say, a CD player or a turntable with a built-in phono stage (the Pioneer doesn't have one - you need the brand's Bluetooth-less £150 SX-20 for that).

Craigslist, etc, is full of older receivers with digital inputs and some great deals can be had. Few, if any, will have Bluetooth though. I got a nice Yamaha for a third of this price a couple of years ago, that has HDMI 1.3b, optical, and coax digital. A lot of people seem to want to upgrade to the latest HDMII spec.

I'll second this. There are great deals to be had on used sound equipment. You can tell pretty quickly from the pictures and description how well the equipment was taken care of. I just got a Denon receiver in perfect condition along with a full Boston Acoustics surround speaker set and subwoofer for $150. They are a little older but have everything I want/need for my setup. It's not going to blow the roof off but it is a great start to building out my sound system

Agree. Just got a Yamaha 579 for $60.00, an Onkyo 646 for $80.00 and a Yamaha 379 for $40.00. All of them are mint, have Bluetooth and plenty of HDMI ports.

Agreed, check craigslist. I just bought a Onkyo HT-R550 with 7.1 speakers (140wall subwoofer) yesterday for $115 on craigslist. I have an older amazon echo connected to the "CD" port, which I use to stream bluetooth audio to. Another option to add bluetooth is using something like below ($17.39):
https://slickdeals.net/f/14863183-miilink-bluetooth-5-0-transmitter-receiver-3-in-1-audio-adapter-dual-link-aptx-low-latency-and-hd-17-39-free-shipping?src=catpagev2

I'm not planning to use the HDMI ports on the receiver.

My connections to the receiver:
* PC (3) 3.5mm audio ports connect to (6) RCA ports on the receiver.
* XBOX 360, I'll use the digital optical audio cable to receiver

I'm also going to buy dual ac infinity 120mm usb fans to exhaust the heat from the receiver.

DACs in budget Amps/Receivers are junk anyway

The best ways is to use an external DAC and use this as an Amp only.

Amps in budget receivers are " junk" as well

So..if you are using this receiver the expectation is that both its DAC and AMP sections are both in the lower end of things

I agree. I was replying to the post asking for digital inputs.

And I also agree to other people above that used mid-range receivers are better choices.

My Yamaha RX-V377 is their cheapest and it sounds just about as good as my RX-A770 from the premium Yamaha Aventage line. Maybe the differences between modern DACs are subtle?

Speaking of HDMI, how would someone output sound from a modern TV to this without an HDMI ARC?

I'd usually say use a digital optical cable but this Pioneer doesn't even have an optical port. Only option would be a 3.5 to RCA cable. I don't think anyone should bother with this Pioneer.
