Great AV Receiver

 

The operations manual included on the CD does a really good job of explaining how to set up and control the receiver. I imagine that many people will find it a bit intimidating because of the large amount of information provided. Be patient and read...

The sound quality is very good, loaded with HDMI inputs, network functions work great. Airplay is a great feature, Internet radio is awesome and has an impressive selection of radio stations. The Pioneer control app works great on my ipod

The on screen interface (home screen) for setting up the receiver is really bland and basic. When you consider all the effort put into the controls and function of this receiver, Pioneer went really cheap and dirty on the menus. It works fine, just...

Great product so far

 

Right now only have a 2.1 hooked up to this system but it does quite a nice job. I had a hard time getting it to actually play bass through the sub, finally figured out I had to change the front speakers to "small" instead of "large". As mentioned HDMI...

plenty of HDMI inputs ; great sound with cheap speakers (better ones on the way now, using my old Aiwa speakers paired with a 12" Klipsch sub, 2 F-20 floor speakers on the way) ; Airplay is great now that my network issues are resolved ; zone 2 will be...

only 1 optical and digital coax in ; HDMI control doesn't seem to work terribly well, though maybe better if I was connecting everything via HDMI ; GUI isn't very nice to look at, including the internet radio/pandora/airplay screens ; preset EQs don't...

I highly recommed this surround sound receiver.

 

I would highly recommend this product. Best Buy did a terrific job on the special daily deal plus ordered it on a Thursday and received it on Friday!! This was a great replacement and missed my surround sound and it was so affordable for the price and...

Quality, price, installation, and makes the surround sound complete

It took longer to install than expected-was making it too hard

Best Bang For The Buck

 

This was a great purchase for $249. I am using this as my downstairs receiver for my 5.1 family room and 2.1 outdoor speakers. I will integrate my AT&T Uverse receiver/DVR, Apple TV, and XBOX One with this product.This product has... Interfaces well...

Pioneer receiver works as advertised

 

I've had Yamaha, Pioneer and Onkyo receivers before and I've always liked Pioneer the best. It's easier to configure my other components to the Pioneer VSX-1023-k and so far the support has been fineThis product has... Plenty of power for all my needs,...

Hookup was simple and the connection to all my other devices was easy with hdmi

Nothing so far

Consumer review by:

Good mid-level receiver, many extras

 

A good mid-level receiver with good sound qualities, hook-up was easy although a few more output options would be nice. Using the 7.1 feature is limited at present. Internet options are good but somewhat user unfriendly. The menu requires referring to...

good sound, like pass-through features

somewhat complex to use

4 out of 5 star receiver is WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT

 

I'VE ALWAYS HAVE OWNED PIONEER PRODUCTS IN TERMS OF RECEIVERS. IT'S JUST LIKE BUYING A WINDCHESTER RIFLE. IT'S OBVIOUSLY FLAGSHIP. I WILL TELL YOU WONT HAVE ANY PROBLEMS AS IT'S STOOD ME A GOOD YEAR AND A HALF AND SINCE WAS A GIFT TO SON IN COLLEGE. I...

Pioneer. Quality. Longevity. No pink elephants on screen either. Those must have been margaritas for the reviewer above

Of course not a 700-800 full feature bluetooth/wifi convenience network ready. But with basic creativity it can be

Consumer review by:

great unit for the cost

 

Had mine for a couple of months now, and it has worked like the Pioneer products of old, meaning flawlessly. Had an old Kentwood that just quit working, this one topped it in every way, maybe I just got a good one for once.
