Summary: I have 3 Pioneer A/V Receivers, a VSX-1022K and 2 VSX-1021K models These receivers have provided superior performance, and easy setup - especially speaker balancing. My most recent purchase was for a VSX-1021K to replace a Yamaha.

Summary: This was built in 2012 and I have had two of these myself. When they came out, I was so impressed with this unit that I bought six more for friends and family. They are all still going super strong and all 8 have NEVER had a problem.
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.
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.

Summary: All in all, a fantastic receiver for the price and for what I need it to do.
Pros: This is an excellent receiver for a basic HD setup. I only have one room requiring surround sound, so another zone is not needed. I already had my house wired for ethernet, so a wireless option is not needed. The auto speaker calibration worked great. TV, movies, games, and music all sound great....
Cons: The remote is a bit awkward, but I think that goes for most remotes that come with TVs and receivers. I think the manufacturers figure the customer will have a universal remote anyway (Logitech Harmony is great!).
The best surround sound receiver for the average joe!

Summary: Let me start off by saying - wow! I love this unit. The Pioneer VSX-1020-K is a rockin' receiver. After months of research and a few stops at the electronics store to listen, I was amazed at all the capabilites this unit has to offer.
