Ok...now, now...you are not alone, neither in doing the same thing or feeling stupid for doing so. I did it with my Acurus amp, which was not, apparently, as complicated as your Pioneer. So, I was able to replace a fuse and move on. The good news....YOU'LL REMEMBER THIS FOR A LONG TIME AND NOT DO IT AGAIN!! So, having rendered emotional support and comfort, I have to admit I don't have a frickin'clue how to fix it. But I have done what I can. Good luck.

There's Music Technology in Springfield, VA if you feel like packing up your Pioneer and sending it out to them. Give Bill a call and explain the situation ... he will give you an honest assessment and take it from there.
I fried an HK amplifier doing something similar ... so you are far from alone.
Bro, Not to worry. We have all done at least this or worst and I feel for you. My suggestion is to try and buy another unit that is working and when it goes down you may have spare parts or contact the good folks over at Pioneer in Longbeach and ask them when their service center is and send it there. They should have the parts and they fix it it straight away and with a resonable charge. Thee best thing is they will warranty their work.
These kinds of things happen and, as mentioned above, are probably "under-reported." For example, I felt pretty stupid after I did THIS to a perfectly fine pair of Stax Lambda Pro Signature Earspeakers:
I broke them with the vacuum cleaner (yes indeed, quite an idiotic thing to have done, yes indeed....) trying to vacuum out the old foam that was degenerating--extremely...unwise. Yamasinc restored them and they look beautiful.
