  • Excerpt: Pioneer’s 2011 VSX 1021-K was the first receiver to integrate AirPlay. The company’s latest crop of 2012 receivers continues to chase the cutting edge, bringing AirPlay to all but the lowest end of the lineup.

Pioneer VSX-822-K Receiver Review

14 September 2012
  • Conclusion: I was a big fan of last year's VSX-821, but the VSX-822 is more than a worthy successor. This handsome unit provides better audio and video and throws in a ton of networking options -- but at the same price as its predecessor.
  • Pros: Low price, AirPlay adds a slew of audio options, Excellent AV performer, Includes iPod/iPhone/iPad support out of the box, Can be used with Pioneer ControlAV app
  • Cons: No video processing or upconversion (passthrough only), No component video input, Included remote is a bit overwhelming, No Audyssey (has MCACC, which works pretty well)
