Pioneer's VSX-2021 is a receiver for the Apple generation. It's all but intrinsically linked to the company's wares with iPhone/iPad control Apps, dedicated music sharing for multiple iPods, remote control of the latest OS devices and full AirPlay...

Amazing operational flexibility; crisp and spacious sound; Apple- centric features

Lightweight build quality; a remote control you’ll toss away

Pioneer VSX-2021


Pioneer wants to convince you to invest in smart audio to go with your smart TV, and has introduced receivers loaded with Apple-inspired connection, sharing and control features to do it.

The VSX-2021 has an RRP of AU$1799, but if you step down slightly in the specs department, you can get the mid-range VSX-1021 for AU$1299 or the VSX-921 for an RRP of AU$1099.
