  • Excerpt: This is the best 500 dollars. I absolutely enjoy this receiver, and I am not even out a Pioneer guy - till nowadays! I now call it my second wife! I explored and test-listened for months before purchasing, and this VSX-1020 offers the most choices, quality and flexibility for …

  • Excerpt: My husband and I finally cracked and bought ourselves ipods, and we’ve become so addicted to them that we’ve purchased every accessory imaginable, and it still didn’t seem to be enough.

Reciever keep shuting down

Mr. Terrence Paul Mulally, Amazon
21 April 2013
  • Summary: Some others have written that this occurred for them too. It just started happening to me. I've had it about a year and one half. I have no idea why. It's not running hot, just about every ten min. turn on and off.

VSX-1020 - I'd do it again

oranjepants, avsforum.com
15 February 2013
  • Summary: Purchased this to replace a similar Pioneer of lesser features in the $300 range. Very happy with this guy. Use with PS3, Sony 46in LCD HDTV, Sony DVD multi player, ethernet directly to unit, sirius radio, 2 zones, iPhone constantly playing, charter cable. Just need one more HDMI input and it would be perfect. Great value for the features.
  • Pros: packed with features, multi-zone, iPhone/pod support (cable incl)
  • Cons: one slight issue with the headphone jack thinking headphones are plugged in :-)

User Review

Bo a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review

  • Summary: I still own it and will never sell it! For the money, I still can't find anything that even comes close to the clairity, connectivity, and ease of use. I also have a 7.2 BEE model that I paid $2400 for and it does sound better and much louder, but not $1,900 better. I listened to some of the Elite models before buying the 1020K, but the only difference was that the Elite had a 2 yr. warranty. If you ever find a 1020k used with remote, good condition, and under $200.

Great sound, easy installation.

  • Summary: The reciver brought my TV viewing to life. I did not realize all the sounds I was missing. Installation was pretty straight forward. Netwoking the receiver made adjusting all the settings easy, and the tablet app makes it fun to play with the sounds around the room. This was a good buy for the money.

Really?

Doug Starks, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this receiver back in September of 2011 from Amazon and the unit arrived on time as ususal (love Amazon!)and worked flawlessly. I can't fault the features and quality of the VSX -1020. It worked as expected out of the box and provided a lot of features and excellent sound and video reproduction. Ten months later without warning while watching a great movie the receiver died. I checked all connections and settings but the receiver simply would not power back up.

Don't waste your money!

Tim Black, Amazon
30 June 2012
  • Summary: I've owned this receiver for just over a year and it has already stopped working. What a piece of #%?\! A few days ago it started shutting off by itself when it wasn't even hot. I unplugged all of the wires and reconnected everything and it seemed fine for the next few hours but then it started doing it again. Now it won't even power on. It try's to but the front screen is all scrambled and then shuts back down.

This thing is the perfect over all receiver for the serious intermediate.

  • Summary: This is not your everyday receiver. It takes a bit of audiophile knowledge to get it to do what it is capable of doing. If you are not an diehard audiophile you may want to find something a bit more consumer friendly. If you do have the knowledge, you are going to love this machine! I am a musician and sound clarity is as important to me as timing. I got the pioneer speakers to go with this and the sound blows away some of the more expensive sets that I have heard.
