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.
