I recently bought this at a second hand store for CAN$55.00. I was interested in it because of the built-in graphic equalizer and 80 watts per channel rating. I am putting together a small stereo system for a friend with a limited budget and had also picked up some used paradigm Titan v.2 bookshelf speakers and a used CD player with a 5 disc changer. When I first tried the Titan speakers with my NAD 7140 receiver, I was somewhat disappointed with the lack of definition. When I hooked them up to this Pioneer VXS 3300 and adjusted the equalization, the speakers sounded much better. I noticed this receiver had plenty of room to increase the volume too. The NAD receiver gets very good reviews and I've been very happy with it. It seemed to me that the Pioneer VSX 3300 had about the same amount of power as the NAD. I do not consider myself in the league of audiophiles. I am a music lover with a sizable collection of vinyl and CD's and I have my music playing a lot; sometimes at low levels in the background and sometimes cranked up. I really care a lot about how pleasant it sounds to me. I like a warm sound with good definition, dynamic range and imaging. I think the Pioneer VSX 3300 can certainly power a system that will fit that bill for me. I was impressed that I could get the little Titans to sound so good with it. I am writing this review because I noticed that there isn't one here yet. I've never written a review here before. In my opinion, based on my tastes and my limited testing, I think it deserves a good rating; at least an 8/10 and maybe higher; and is worth more than what I just paid for it.
