Pioneer VSX-1022-K review

 

The rate of AV receiver innovation is painfully slow compared with the growth of other living-room technology, but Pioneer has often been at the forefront, adding features like AirPlay and iPhone-friendly USB ports before other manufacturers. Its 2012...

The Pioneer VSX-1022K features six HDMI inputs and built-in AirPlay. The AV receiver has built-in networking, with support for Pandora, DLNA, and Internet radio, plus you can control it from your smartphone. Discounts can bring the price down...

The VSX-1022-K has some puzzling omissions, such as the lack of second-zone audio functionality and limited streaming-audio support. It can't update its firmware over its network connection, plus its Wi-Fi dongle costs $150. The user interface can at...

The Pioneer VSX-1022-K's combination of six HDMI inputs and AirPlay looks good from afar, but this AV receiver is only worth considering if you can find it heavily discounted.

"It's a great receiver I just purchased it on Amazon."

 

It's a great receiver for the price, it's currently on sale at Amazon. You can't beat it! I'm a Pioneer fan for life!

Setup was a breeze,six count em six HDMI inputs. Airplay with Itunes is "outstanding." I had to re-configure Pandora to get it to play. Set up with MCACC was easy! Various ways of playing your music "icing on the cake!" Outstanding sound and pics!

I have no turn-table hook-up. The remote is kind of crappy. Instructions for Pandora misleading. For a wireless web hook-up the NetGear single unit interface $40 plug into your ethernet port at the rear of the receiver. Works great!

I'm very happy with it.

 

I'm happy with the product...it does what its supposed to do. So If you're a Pioneer fan, then you won't be disappointed.

When I bought this, it was the best in its price class (CNET gave it 4 stars). The most important at the time I bought it a while back was the 6 hdmi inputs and the airplay.. At the time, no one else met both. I still give it 4 stars for what it does

This is true pretty much of any AV receiver you buy...their remotes and the process of setting up features is crap. You shouldn't have to resort to the web to look up how to set up features like AirPlay, but that's what I had to do

not bad for the price

 

Great entry level receiver with decent sound and options.

Plenty of options, 3d ready, sound quality is decent

Pandora application felt like I was using a desktop app from the 90s. The manual covers three models, remember which one you bought! 2 of the speaker terminals are regular clamp and not 5 way like the rest of the group. Maybe it's my OCD but come on,...
