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.

Outstanding Bang for the Buck, Future Proof (7.1 & 3D), iPhone App is Great, Buy an Airport Express Too

P. Colin McGraw, Amazon

  • Summary: I tend to do a lot of research before making large purchasing decisions and so far this receiver is receiving a pretty rosy reception! Its predecessor, the 1019, was CNET's and Gizmodo's top mid-range receiver. Both reviewers had just as high hopes for the 1020, and Gizmodo already called it the best receiver $550 can buy, saying the 1020 "hit the sweet spot" that gave the most bang for buyer's buck.

Improves More Than Just Sound

  • Summary: I lean heavily on these reviews so I feel obligated to return the favor. There are plenty of reviews on here and other sites that tell you how great the features are (6 HDMI's,MCACC, iphone compatible, Zoning, etc) and how great the sound is, (it actually makes my entry level Sony's sound good). What I found to be the most surprising thing about this unit, the picture on my TV has improved, even my wife noticed it and she could care less about this stuff.

Great AV Receiver with a few quirks

M. Harms, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver about 1 week ago and love it. It has great sound, tons of features, and lots of connectivity for whatever device you may have. The only real issue I had was how the receiver would switch to TV/SAT every time I would turn on the system using my Harmony One remote. However, I discovered that this problem was caused by my TV and the fix is the following: Go into Menu under HDMI-CEC and turn it Off.

  • Summary: First receiver I've spent real money on. Most have been hand me downs from family and friends. Glad I waited!

Wii - Component video / RCA audio 5. Home theater PC - DVI-HDMI / RCA audio 6. DJ turntables and mixer - RCA audio 7. iPod or iPhone - USB front 8.

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

Hans Blix, Amazon
7 June 2012
  • 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.
