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. The "HDMI Pass Through" doesn't work with my newest Dish Network receiver VIP 722k DVR. It does work however, with my Samsung 6900 Blue-ray DVD Player.

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...

fampro, Amazon

  • 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. Being that it was going to be installed in a cabinet I wanted to try Onkyo but their constant heat reports concerned me. That and I liked the features offered for apple integration.

A bit disappointing

David Chandler, Amazon
3 May 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. About a week ago it started completely breaking down and stopped detecting audio properly; instead of detecting digital audio it would default to analog inputs and simply not play anything. Time for a new receiver.

  • 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.

Disappointment

Yaian, Amazon

  • Summary: Pioneer VSX-1021-K 7.1 AV-Receiver (Apple AirPlay , DLNA 1.5 Streaming-Client, HDMI, USB) schwarz I am disappointed in the receiver in two areas: 1)The manual/setup instructions are very very poor and one needs a Labtop PC in order to be able to follow the sequence of instructions.Wiring instructions are also poor.It took two of us several hours to have it set up correctly.!!!

Auweh, nicht richtig PS3-kompatibel

Gaspode, Amazon
2 September 2011
  • Summary: Ich konnte es nicht glauben, an sich ist das Gerät genial und es funktioniert mit diversen Zuspielern über HDMI. Nur bei einer aktuellen PS3 slim gibt es Probleme. Des öfteren kommt immer wenn die PS3 den Audiocodec umschaltet ein fieses "Plop" aus allen Boxen. Bild einwandfrei, aber beim Ton hat sich was aufgehängt. Tausch des HDMI-Kabels oder Neustart der PS3 bewirkt gar nichts. Erst wenn man den Verstärker 1-2 mal neu startet dann klappt's auch mit dem Ton.
