I have been using it as a pre/pro with a B&K 5 channel amp powering my speakers. It does a wonderful job with Home Theater and music. Looking to get into a dedicated pre/pro for sale on here and need to fund the purchase.

I fixed the cracked door issue and although you can tell if you are right up on the machine you can BARELY tell. It has worked flawlessly; the handshake issue was not a design flaw - it was a bad hdmi cable that i had in my system. Replaced the hdmi and it has worked perfectly. Has stayed in the rack since I received and still have original box. I paid $250 plus shipping when I bought it which was a steal. E-bay has been selling these around $300 consistently. Looking for local sale at this time in MD/DC/Va area - $225. If I have to ship it will be $225 plus ACTUAL shipping costs which would likely be north of $50 due to size and weight depending on location.

Here is the pioneer product page: pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Elite+Receivers/VSX-94TXH

Here is the sound and vision article: https://soundandvision.com/content/pioneer-elite-vsx-94txh-av-receiver-0

This unit retailed for $1,800 when new and according to the research I did and what others have told me, it was the precursor to the highly desirable SC units.


Looks the same as pictures in original thread but will try to get new ones up in the next day or two for those interested. Thanks in advance.

  • I would be really interested in snagging it from you but I'm just not sure when I could get your way soon. I'm in Philadelphia. Are you D.C. Area?
  • shawn474shawn474 Posts: 2,811
    Yes DC area. I am in no rush. So if you want it, it’s yours. I can also drive a bit to meet if you need it sooner

    Thanks man. I probably should have just kept it and not "upgraded". The marantz is a beautiful piece of equipment though and I always wanted to got the true separates route. Still trying to tweak some settings to get it the way I want. I can say that I spent some time with the Marantz optimizing the Blu Ray portion and it looks and sounds incredible. I haven't spent the time doing the same with the Cable/Sat protion yet, but need to do so. The picture and sound just seems compressed; can't put my finget on it but will try to figure it all out when I get some free time.

    Bumping this back up; Adam paid but we couldn’t get around to meeting in a timely fashion and I didn’t feel right keeping his money. I refunded him and this had been boxed up on a shelf since. Need to make room and want someone else to enjoy it. It really is a beast.

    $175 local pick up.

    Hmmmm. This is tempting. I will need a new receiver soon as mine is over 12 years old. It's also a Pioneer and works perfectly. It's just old.

    Would you still be willing to ship this? I live in Oregon.

    Edit: Did you ever install an IEC inlet into this receiver? It's weird it doesn't have a detachable cord.

    I would ship but it won’t be cheap. I have the original box and packing materials. It is heavy (45 lbs or so) and I am on the opposite side of the country. Happy to do it but may kill the deal for you. I can get a quote if you want.

    I never installed an iec. I was surprised as well.
