Not happy ... can't see my Optomo monitor

agthorn, CNET
29 April 2012
  • Summary: Even if I get a technique to get my Optomo monitor to work on Monday, I do not know if I will be keeping this unit based on all the other factors discovered, read about, etc. I am just not that big of an Apple enthusist to ignore what is really important in a good Receiver just for 'air-play' ...
  • Pros: Airplay was attractive, but I am not as much a Apple freak as the next guy having moved on from iphone to droid but still carrying both! ;-) I loved it's 5-1 HDMI port and 7.1 speaker support. Price was good.
  • Cons: Did not support my Optomo projector! Can't use it!, Tried to reach Pioneer but need to wait till Monday. I found many others that were very disappointed in remote, long pause to start/stop, manual written by engineers, only 1yr warranty, etc.

Had high hopes but just OK.

  • Summary: The product descriptions make this sound like the best receiver since sliced bread. The implementation is a little lacking.
  • Pros: Love the ipad App but needs more features., Plenty of HDMI inputs but requires HDCP, Internet Radio works great.
  • Cons: Airplay only supports audio. Why not Video?, Ipod doc does not support video either even though it says it can., DLNA has very limited support. Movies in iTunes on a Mac will not play although they play fine through my samsung Blu-ray player.

A bit disappointing

David Chandler, Amazon
29 August 2011
  • Summary: My Thoughts on the VSX-1021 Up until now I've been living with a limping-along Kenwood Soverign VR-5090. It was definitely showing its age. The lack of HDMI was really getting to be a problem.

Product as advertised except ...

Tech2006, Amazon
15 August 2011
  • Summary: Product works as advertised, except one function: "HDMI Pass Through" feature. This feature should allow you to watch the device of your choice connected to your receiver through HDMI cable, while your receiver is in standby mode.

Excellent - but the power supply on mine just blew.

Trevor Paul, Amazon
14 June 2011
  • Summary: 3 months old and power supply has just quit. No stray wires, no extreme use, just basic operation and it started to turn off after 15 min, then 10 min, then 5 min, now it won't turn on at all. Followed troubleshooting in manual. Needs service. Not Amused.

Good Receiver for the money. But...

Amazon Customer, Amazon
3 June 2011
  • Summary: It was with MUCH research that took me to finally choose this unit - I was looking at an Onkyo, Denon and the Pioneer. I had an older Pioneer receiver with no HDMI and based on my satisfaction with that kept me towards this model.

  • Excerpt: Мечтал -купил -разочарован
  • Pros: Ничего сверхестественного самый обычный ресивер. Гораздо важнее какие вы используете проврода и акустику, как расставите в помещении.
  • Cons: Блютус модуль продается отдельно, цена тоже его завышена видимо за технологию airplay. c wi-fi тоже дела не фонтан, тащить сетевой провод придется.
