Pioneer VSX-920-K Receiver Preview


The Pioneer VSX-920-K introduces two additional channels of amplification over the two lower models, PQLS for enhanced two-channel audio, and Anchor Bay powered 1080p upconversion all for $399.

Pioneer VSX-920 review


Has Pioneer climbed aboard the gimmick wagon with its App-controlled receiver?

Awesome iPhone/iTouch control App ; Slick net tuner

Below par sound with congested bass ; Short of guts ; no front HDMI

Pioneer VSX-920 review


With this incredibly accomplished amplifier/receiver, Pioneer has really raised its game, gaining the coveted full marks in the process

Good looks and bold spec ; excellent auto set-up (eventually) ; exhilarating multichannel sound and acceptable in stereo too

Flummoxing remote ; can be bettered for DVD upscaling

Purposeful, focused stuff – this is a genuine contender and a must-hear

Pioneer VSX-920


The Pioneer VSX-920 receiver is perhaps the most feature-rich control hub in its class, with remote iPhone volume control and on-screen cover art.

The VSX-920 and VSX-1020 will be available in July for AU$1099 and AU$1299 respectively. If your budget doesn't stretch this far then Pioneer also makes the VSX-520 (AU$499) and VSX-820 (AU$699), but without some of the A/V features like app control....

Using Pioneer VSX 920K with BOSE AM5 speaker system. Noticed poor bass output. I purchased JAMO sub 250 ACTIVE subwoofer and noticed much improved bass and depth when listening to music. I am using it for only listening to music.

Sound quality, value for money (purchased in Belgium)

Requires ACTIVE subwoofer. Poor performance with passive sub woofer

@ Ray, I don't agree with you, I have bought the 920 and think its great, I have to turn my base down and its only running on about 40%. I would say something is not right in your setup or invest in a decent subi! As for working out the controls etc......

Great, Easy to use, Ipod Control and Iphone excellent

I have just upgraded from my Pioneer VSX-D510 to the VSX-920-K, BIG mistake!I am running the VSX-920 exactly the same way as my older D510 through a Bose Acoustimass 7 set up with a passive sub woofer.The set up was quite simple, the speaker wiring was...


Should come with a health warning, if you are not technically minded, forget it

It has everthing most people will need.If you connect it to a good set of speakers it is fantastic.It is worth buying the bluetooth adapter if you want to play music via you Ipod or laptop
