Summary: I did a lot of homework before choosing this receiver, and thought I'd made a good purchase based on reviews here, cnet, etc. The Pioneer 1020 has the features I need. I should have paid attention to the warranty.
Summary: I purchased this product 2 years ago. I bought this product because I had a Pioneer that I bought when I was in Japan 40 years ago with the Navy. I was still using the old amp when I realized that it was not compatible with my new TV.
Summary: While it worked, this was an excellent receiver - hence the 2 stars. Unfortunately - it turns out there is a reason why Pioneer is one of the few companies that dropped their warranty to 1 year: their receivers are not as reliable as they were in the past.
Summary: I've only had it hooked up for about 1 week. So far no issues and the video quality seems very good so does the quality of the sound. I chose this model over the Onkyo for some of the features that is has. However, it just doesn't deliver very well on those features.
