Great product

  • 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). Sound is great and it is nice to have the internet connection so I can use the app to control the settings.

  • 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. 150-165W would be great. also and the most important thing. THIS RECIVER DONT HAVE OSD!!! YOU CAN USE OSD ONLY TO CONFIGURE THE RECIVERS. BUT IF YOU CHANGE THE VOLUME OR INPUT...

  • Summary: Good product. Like internet radio and auto speaker tuning. No five stars because requires special Bluetooth and WiFi adapter if you want to use these features.

Great receiver, great price

  • 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. Finally I decided on the Pioneer. It arrived solidly packed, and setup was easy. I plugged into my router and grabbed an IP address with no problem.

Easy Setup and It Gets the Job Done

  • 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. As far as the VSX-1021-K is concerned: My Input Devices: - DVR (via RCA video w/optical audio) - DVD Player (via component video w/optical audio) - XBOX 360 (via HDMI) - Wii (via component video w/RCA...

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. Since I had never owned a receiver before, it was quite daunting to use and figure out which speaker outputs in which to plug the speaker leads.

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. These receivers are awfully hard to configure and I realized that I was not doing things right only after I took one back to the store to find the replacement behaving the same way 2.

Good product concept, 4/5 stars on execution.

  • 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 product usability detail are not what I have come to expect (I'm spoiled by Apple attention to usability, no doubt)..

Good and Solid. Not Great and Amazing.

  • Summary: After spending 1 week with this AVR, here are my thoughts: Pros: - Sounds fantastic! - My old Yamaha speakers have come alive! - Airplay works like a charm - it was playing continuously for about 3 hours this weekend with no problems - The iPhone app is brilliant! Love it! - Internet radio is also cool, but I use my iPhone to stream Pandora through Airplay.

Pioneer Vsx 1021 K Av Receiver Black

  • Summary: We purchased this item in order to use it with a BSkyB HD Set top Box, for test purposes. We are using this item in 'the lab' as it were, not in a domestic environment. Suffice to say that it ticks all of our boxes and we are very happy with its performance.
