Summary: This thing is loaded with features. My favorite by far is playing internet radio directly from an internet connection. It has an easy way to program and rename stations from an http site. It has a nice glossy front and runs really cool especially compared to my old Onkyo oven. The iphone control is pretty cool although it would be nice if you could turn on the receiver from the iphone app. It plays an ipod well and does display cover art for music although very small.
Summary: I had the Pioneer VSX-1020-K for several weeks now. I purchased it based on the CNET review on the VSX-1019-K model. The sound quality is on par with my old Pioneer Elite unit. However, the radio reception on the VSX-1020 was really bad. I used the same antenna that was on my Elite unit but the signal was worse than a $50 radio. Also the little flap hiding the USB port could have been better made. It was never flush with the face of the unit.
