Excellent product, great sounds, easy setup and AirPlay

  • 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.
  • Pros: Sound quality, Setup features, AirPlay, Wifi enabled, ARC pass- thru
  • Cons: No built in wifi, Expensive AW-L300, not worth it

  • 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).

  • 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: 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.

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.

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.

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.
