User Review

Bo a Audio Enthusiast, Audio Review
26 January 2013
  • 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.

VSX-1020 is exactly what I was looking for

Starsky, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • Summary: I really wanted to give this 4.75 stars, but due to rounding, it gets 5. I'll explain the .25 star deduction towards the end of my review. I spent a good part of Dec 2010 looking/researching for a new receiver for my living room/home theater setup as this is my first real A/V receiver purchase (I've owned a couple HTIB's in the past). Mind you, I'm no audiophile.

Previous Yamaha and Onkyo owner (review from an audiophile)

saladdin, Amazon
18 January 2011
  • Summary: I sold my old Yamaha HTR-5760 a few months back not because I didn't love the sound coming out of it or the video quality, everything was still working like brand new, but simply because there were way too many wires going everywhere and I wanted something with the same audio quality but with the added bonus of HDMI and 3D capabilities. So, I went for the ridiculously well spec'd Onkyo tx-sr608.

Preliminary Review for VSX-1020-K --Verdict: Recommended

Hans Blix, Amazon
29 August 2010
  • Summary: I am writing this review with limited experience. Very likely, the review will be updated later with more time spend with this receiver. I purchased this item after another purchase went sour with a Yamaha Receiver (simple shipping damage by UPS). I was originally very attracted to Pioneer, however, I did not want to pay extra $150. Lucky for me, damaged Yamaha became an excuse to upgrade to this Pioneer. I admit, I am not an audiophile.

Perfect for me

R. STAMPER, Amazon

  • Summary: Chose this after agonizing between it and the Onkyo Tx-SR608, which you could add their HD Radio and Ipod dock add-ons ($100 ea). Went for this based mostly on the out of the box Ipod compatibility and internet radio. From what I read, the Anchor Bay chipset sounded like it would do a better job up-converting analog video too.

Versatile receiver with some usability issues

Sam An, Amazon
5 August 2010
  • Summary: Got this receiver as a replacement of a very old second hand stereo receiver. I'm very happy with the Pioneer's features and the audio and video output from the receiver. At this point, I've connected just two speakers (large floor standing Pioneer speakers) to the receiver, along with the HDTV, a Blu-ray player, a DVD player and a Dish Network receiver. So this review does not address any surround sound features or quality of this receiver.
