Read the fine print


Very poor service.

Better software for the HDMI switching. Easier to setup than the previous model. This model is a very different model than the previous model VSX1121

The sound quality is a bit forward. Not as smooth as it could be. The audio sounds digital and not smooth like a class A/B amp. My complaint is the fact that this unit is no way close to the previous model VSX1121. All the pre-outs are missing and the...

For the price, there is none better

Universal iOS iControl AV 2012 app is amazing, especially on the iPad ; Sound quality is exceptional for anyone who wants a giant step above "home theater in a box" setups, allows for upgrades in the future ; Setup is super easy ; All functions work...

OSD looks outdated and low-res on any HD display, especially considering you must use an HDMI connection to see it ; If you don't have an iPad or some newer iOS device, I would certainly say that this receiver looks less amazing as a buying option...

Working fine so far


Replaced a older unit that could not decode master HD. This receiver seems to work with no real problems. Sounds good but i still don't have the timing with the screen when playing blurays perfect yet

The on screen GUI over the HDMI is really ugly but it works. The V-tuner menu is hard to scroll down

Not sure why this is rated so bad


This is replacing a 5 year old Harmon Kardon which does not support DTS-HD Master Audio. I didn't want to purchase another $900 receiver and have it be med to low end of their line (Harmon Kardon) and not have any Internet enabled features. (AirPlay,...

Please read the other thoughts for a little background ; This receiver is quick to power on and change inputs. Which is a big plus for using a Logitech Harmony remote. The audio and picture quality is just as good as my last receiver if not better. The...

Video quality prevented me from doing anything.


I purchased this item from newegg and it came with a free unexpected Bluetooth adapter that I didn't care for to begin with. I did an RMA for a refund since the receiver was having many problems. The agent setup the RMA for the receiver only, but I...

NONE. Please see other thoughts on experience with newegg

Video quality was bad and displaying various colors. Also, I was taking a very long tiom to show anything when changing the HDMI source. My RMA experience. Please see other thoughts on experience with newegg

Great Sound but horrible to setup on network


You need to open a port within your modem or router to made the app work in your phone or tablet and there is not part in the instructions where mention that. However; I still had to call tech Pioneer support and after waiting 30 minutes for an agent,...
