Excellent product, great sounds, easy setup and AirPlay
8 April 2012
Summary: Upgraded to the Pioneer receiver last Christmas, using it for the last 4 months and am very happy with the purchase. Was easy to setup and make all the connections, ARC pass thru took a little longer but it's awesome, especially watching Hulu or Netflix content.
Summary: My purchase of this receiver was based on reviews of others. After taking time to set up the system it works great. The only negative is the figuring out the pass thru for the HDMI (still working on it).
Excellent Sound, Air Play, streaming media, web radio - but NO OSD

Summary: one of the best Recivers i ever used. Apple AIR PLAY working prefectly! (you can play any song from your ipod, iphone, ipad and pc with no cables :) also, the Pioneer AV2 App working prefectly. the sound is great. the only thing is that this Reciver have 130W per channel and its not enough.
Summary: I had been trying to decide between the VSX-1021-K and the Onkyo TX-NR609. Depending on the review, I had found reasons for and against both. I upgraded from a Sony DA3ES, which even though it's 10+ years old, is still a great unit, but was built well before HDMI and the new HD sound formats.
Summary: This receiver replaced my Yamaha HTR-5560. Most of the input/output devices I have now use HDMI or Component and the Yamaha supported mainly S-video and RCA (and to a lesser degree, Component). I also now have an HDMI-capable TV so it seemed like it was time for an upgrade.
Awesome functionality but it's a bit complicated to use

Summary: I purchased this model over the lower Pioneer ones because of the Airplay feature. If you can get Airplay to work with your iPhone or iPod Touch, it's really pretty cool. For my particular setup, I had two zones - one which has a TV and overhead stereo speakers and the second with just speakers.
Good receiver - wish Pioneer did some re-engineering though!!

Summary: This is a critically acclaimed product from an equally well acclaimed manufacturer. In addition to the sound, I do not really care about the other features much but gave this product four stars for 2 reasons: 1.
Summary: (Review updated 90 days after purchase, my opinions have improved somewhat, and i will correct a couple errors in my review, and add more content to my review refining my critiques and adding some new observations -jeff) I really wanted to love this receiver, but the quality control and attention to...
Excellent balance of features, performance, and price

Summary: I'd been researching receivers for some time to replace a much more expensive Harman Kardon AVR7300 with a blown center amp when this new Pioneer model was released. My requirements were pretty simple - decent output power, processing of all modern sound codecs (7.1, Dolby True HD, DTS-HD, etc.
