Pioneer VSX-1019AH

 

The Pioneer VSX-1019AH delivers an excellent feature set and outstanding sound quality for its price, making it our top mid-range A/V receiver pick so far.

Outstanding sound quality for the price ; Four HDMI inputs ; Can connect an iPod/iPhone directly to its USB port and browse music using on-screen graphical user interface ; Analog video upconversion to 1080p, with acceptable image quality ; On-board...

Advanced controls can be difficult to set-up ; Confusing manual

We switched over to program material and the first disc up was Star Trek: Insurrection. The Pioneer had no difficulty clearly rendering the opening sequence, with the curved edges of the bridge railing and boat hulls looking jaggy-free. Lastly, we...

The front panel is pretty clean, with only 11 buttons, of which four are devoted to listening mode selection. A knob at the far left-every bit as large as the volume control at right-handles input selection. You have to cycle through the inputs to find...

Pioneer VSX-1019AH

 

Great value for money when they are on special and paired up with pioneer series 3 speaker package. I purchased the amp for $849 and the speakers for $1200. You cannot get better sound on the market for $2000. All that is left is tp purchase the...

Pioneer VSX-1019AH

 

I have attempted to connect my iPod to my new Pioneer AH-919 receiver using the USB input. For some reason I get the message "Wrong device or No device" on the screen. No amount of turning the receiver on or off has any affect nor does disconnecting...

Pioneer VSX-1019AH

 

This is one fine peice of equipment. In typical Pioneer style the sound produced by this unit is very clean. More than enough power to satisfy most. Easily rivals and in some cases eclipses far more expensive offerings from other manufacturers.

Sound, power, looks, connectivity

iPhone control, lack of DLNA/network support., non illuminated remote control

Warranty Bad!!!!!!!!

 

Went down after 6 months, took it into an authorized warranty shop and...that's where it is still, three months later. All promise no delivery when I talk to Pioneer or the service shop. I think I've purchased my last Pioneer product.

up-conversion, multi hdmi, sounds good

Can't use it...ever

Product Specifications

This hub for your home entertainment center allows you to enjoy your favorite movies on Blu-ray Disc, DVD or VHS on your flat-panel television like never before. With standard features that include a phenomenal ability to upscale and convert analog video signals to 1080p when transmitted through HDMI to your high definition television, the VSX-1019AH-K's video scaler presents you with nothing but the best quality possible today - regardless of what video source it receives. And as portable audio devices are now becoming a primary source of entertainment, it's also why the VSX-1019AH-K is Works with iPhone certified. With this certification comes a myriad of benefits for enjoying your iPhone on the VSX-1019AH-K: easy connectivity with the front USB port and included cable - even charging the device while connected; music and movies are automatically muted with incoming calls (no longer requiring you to put the phone in Airplane Mode); compressed music files are greatly enhanced by Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology; Auto Level Control maintains a consistent volume from to song to song and all this control is still possible from the palm of your hand through the iPhone itself or the VSX-1019AH-K's remote. Add the VSX-1019-AH-K's color Graphical User Interface (GUI) and the ability for 2nd zone A/V distribution, and enjoying a Blu-ray Disc movie in the living room while someone else scrolls through iTunes album art while listening to music in a bedroom is all but effortless. But the benefits certainly don't stop there. With 4 HDMI inputs and 2 component video inputs the potential to expand your HD entertainment experience even further is not only a dream come true but also a technical reality.
