Summary: This is a very nice unit. Overall I am satisfied with it, the sound it gives is very good. The only thing I'm not happy with is the input for blue ray quit working shortly after I got it. I hooked up the blue ray player to the dvd connections and it appears to work ok.
This receiver is a no brain-er. Buy it, you can't get more for your money

Summary: I Love this receiver and every feature does what you ask except for when I tried wiring my HDMI through the receiver I wasn't able to get the 3D to work right so it could be just some of my configuration issues. This receiver has so many tweaks that you can do to it that I have given up on tweaking everything. Even with the HDMI issues I have been highly recommending this receiver to all of my friends.
Summary: The primary reason to buy this receiver was to reduce the number of audio and video connections behind the cabinet, as well as to be able to have easy, one or two button switching of both audio and video feeds. This does all the above. I have 2 HDMI sources in (cable HD-DVR and DVD player) and one composite in (Wii). I have one HDMI out to TV and one digital audio out to TV. That's it other than speaker wire.
Summary: I got this to replace the VSX-820-K, which I liked but had few shortcomings, such as the requirement to use an analog video connection to the TV if you want to use the on screen menu. Got this at a non-Amazon retailer for well under the $399 MSRP. Looks and design: Classy black - got the spouse approval.
Summary: The value is certainly here. The receiver is powerful, sleek and well designed. PROs: The HDMI inputs and outputs are easy to hookup The speaker inputs of the back of the receiver are high quality, not cheap inputs like I am used to from a sub $400 receiver Comes with a microphone used to tune the receiver and verify working speakers CONs: The little removable plastic plate that covers the iPod input should not come all the way off!
Summary: This is a great receiver and the price was really competitive when you look at all the features. It comes with an IPOD interface that works great and costs up to $100.00 from other AVR manufacturers. The only thing that I wish I would have know was that not all devices that state they have an HDMI output can be switched by all HDMI AVRs. When I connected my dish receiver to the VSX-920-K, I noticed that the screen would flicker.
Summary: Wow, this one took me a while to solve. Seems as if most of these units work flawlessly with all devices. Mine didn't out of the box. This is just an initial review and I'm only going to cover a few relevant things. Sound is awesome! There's tons of sound choices too for making the most of your setup. This unit is just as good as the 1020 minus a few features I didn't care about.
Summary: This device is fantastic. Hook was a breeze, needed it's own space in an enclosed entertainment center so it can fit but it has work for the last month with no problems. Have used the iPod connector and pretty impressed with the very simple(Black background with white text) interface, which does leave a lot of room for improvement. Also upgraded to Onkyo speakers with the output of the receiver and it working with no problems.
Summary: I got mine a few weeks ago with the special offer that includes the Bluetooth adaptor. There are no problems with the receiver working with my PS3, Xbox 360, Sonos, and TV, so please don't let some of the bad reviews make you think that this receiver can't work with game consoles. This is a unit with advanced features and many settings, so maybe some people just don't know how to use it or had some bad cables.
Summary: I was debating myself a lot between Onkyo, Yamaha, Denon and Pioneer. Definetely for the price and value this is a winner. It comes with many features that one needs and the only thing I wished it had was wireless internet. This won over VSX-1020 primary because 1020 had an ethernet port fo wireless connectivity and it did not worth extra spending.
