    Read my pioneer topics and see my opinions.

    Btw i now have a pioneer 313 and its bloody loud even at volume 20-25 on dvds and it goes upto 70 i hear lol and i tryed 30 but got neighbours complaining that god was shouting at them :D

    It is clear the sound and loud and the sub is passive but is damn fine bass although when not using dvds i tend to turn down the bass a bit and treble up a bit.


    Its best for dvds as music sounds to me just not as good as my old jvc sound system that i was given as i mean that the instruments dont come through very well but i may have set up my system wrong for music and there are bloody loads of presets to try so i may have the wrong one on there.

    Overall i give it a 9 out of 10 :)

    Problems i find it that the rating are generall rated in PMPO rather than rms outputs and so what seems powerful is often poor. All i can say is which sounds like it has more ooomph has more ooomph. (Not very technical i know)

    On the dolby thing, prologic 2 is more advanced when decoding rear channels and i have to say on my Sony unit i can swap between prologic and prologic II and when playing music the difference is definatly noticable but doesn't actually improve the quality of the sound.

    If you pop onto dolbys website there is a thousand page essay on how it all works, but really Prologic is fine as you generally find rear channels when decoding stereo sources are only used when there is music rather than speech and prologic 2 provides 2 separathe channels where i think prologic has one rear channel and both rear speakers give the same output. If that makes sense?
