Pioneer were once one of the most dominant manufacturers in the AV market but with tough competition from Yamaha, Onkyo and Denon in recent years they have struggled to hold on to their crown. They still however produce very high quality receivers, and the Pioneer VSX-923 continues a long line of quality all round receivers that have performed well.

With the recent price drop on it, it has suddenly become one of the most interesting receivers on the market. At just a touch over £300 it provides a wealth of features including the ability to connect online wirelessly with the addition of the AS-WL300 wireless dongle.

Once connected this receiver really opens up a wealth of possibilities thanks to the control app for android and Apple phones, and thankfully the sound quality is very good for this level. It has a tendency towards clear open dynamics on stereo music and we'd lean this way if music is important to you. It does lack in a little of the dynamics that the Yamaha RX-V675 pumps out, and the Denon AVR-X2000 has a bit more punch, but both struggle with the wireless connectivity and with the price drop on the Pioneer they are suddenly quite a bit more expensive - meaning this is much more of a bargain.

A good alternative would probably be the Onkyo TX-NR626 which is comparably priced. Even better it is wireless out of the box so doesn't need a dongle.

If you've decided this is the perfect AV receiver for you, we are however sure you'll be happy. Our overall impression is high and as stated before the price drop really helps make this a leading receiver. Here at Best AV Deals we always try and make sure we give you the best deal in the UK for brand new authorised stock, so why not let us help you build the system of your dreams?
