Pioneer VSX-1022-K

 

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

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

Cosmetic Defects

 

I'm still waiting on other components to set everything up so this is an unboxing review. I knew this was a refurbished unit but it looks much more like a heavily-used and abused store demo. The glossy front is heavily scuffed as well as dings on the...

Faster than expected shipping

Heavy cosmetic damage

Very Disappointed

 

Not many to state here. If it worked at all, it was okay

Where do I start? Unit was slow on giving the signal to the TV, was often out of sync on audio and video, and stopped working altogether within 30 days of receiving it ; Then, we tried to contact newegg for a return, and were told that since we didn't...

Good receiver

 

Really like the receiver now that it is set up. Needed tech support to get Pandora to work. The sound is excellent and it works seamlessly with the DVD and TV.

Great price. Excellent features. Nice looking. Versatile. Good tech support from Pioneer

Difficult to set up

Pioneer VSX-1022-K 7.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver

 

I got this unit to replace one over 10 years old and beginning to die. This one was nice in that it has HDMI in and out as well as taking all other sources and putting them to HDMI out. The unit seems to function well and my only real complaint is the...

Lots of inputs, HDMI switching, non-HDMI to HDMI conversion

Bad IPOD interface and remote control app. Bad Pandora app

Enjoying Receiver

 

I streamed a few internet podcasts (MP3s) from my PC and it worked ok.

Firmware updates. Great video and sound. Up scaling works good too

Very Big! A lot bigger than I anticipated. I couldn't get my Google TV (via Sony box) to work, kept flickering. Once I removed the box everything was good. No way to hide inputs that will never be used. Also when I turn off my TV the receiver shuts off...

Good price but not what you expect

 

Huge disappointment if you are going for dlna or airplay. You are better off purchasing an appleTV or other media box and only getting this for connecting up your entertainment equipment to your surround sound.

Sound is good. Video is good. Lots of connections available this model. Man reason I purchased was for Airplay and dlna

This device is not full dlna. You can stream audio files only which was a huge disappointment. Setting up Pandora is a joke if you don't get the account you want correct the first time. Tried changing it to my wife's pandora account and it won't let me...
