Good card, Great value, better than Xfired 270Xs.

 

Sounds great, plenty of power. No problems with HDMI switching

Do your research before buying

 

Do your research before you buy. You will find that all the VSX receivers have poor transistors in the amplifier section, and fail after a year of use. This is very common on this line of receivers. As much as i loved this receiver, having to drop it...

Great sounding receiver line. I was impressed with mine

Had the VSX-1022, after 1yr and 1 week it completely died. No sound. Pioneer would not stand behind it because it was 1 week out of warranty. After about 6 months, had issues with the erthernet conection. Completely stopped connecting to interent and...

Beware of problems with firmware udates

 

sound quality of Pioneer products is usually very good

I own a previous model the 1121-k that because of a Firmware update failure it is not working anymore. Unless I take it to a repair shop there is no way to correct this situation -A problem solved by other brands like Yamaha-. I read the manual of this...

Love Pioneer but...

 

Pioneer rcvr. with all the bells n whistles for a decent price. Astounding when in a 5.1 or 7.1 setup! Gives that nice house shaking base thump with ease :-)

Connected a couple Klipsch Synergy F-20 Premium Dual 6.5" and it seems to lack "warmth" on a simple 2 speaker stereo setup (I swapped out some old ones I know have warmth with any stereo and it was still to "cold" sounding). Does much better (as in day...

Headphone jack is almost worthless

 

Everything that has to do with physical speakers is fine

This is my big problem. I wanted a receiver that I could use with headphones at night, or in general to keep the noise level down in my 1 bedroom apartment I share with my girlfriend ; The channel levels you set for the speakers are applied to the...

Home Theatre heaven

 

I have been utilizing the Pioneer VSX-1024 as the heart of my home theatre set-up. It receives HDMI inputs from my Directv digital HD receiver and a Panasonic DMP-BDT 320 blu-ray player and sends them via a HDMI to the Epson Home Cinema 8350 HD...

It wasn't free

An Excellent Receiver

 

I was able to download the 69 page PDF version of the manual and got it configured to my liking. While I prefer the software version of the manual (as text can be searched), it would have been nice to have a paper version come with the unit.

This has a wonderful set of options which can be used to setup your home theatre system to suit your needs. The sound quality is superb with very little noise or distortion. Physical connectivity to the unit was quick and easy. I also enjoy the fact...

The receiver did not come with a paper manual. You get a quick start guide and little more. Given that some of the options are less than intuitive, the person setting this unit up will need to reference the manual to get the configuration setup right....

Outstanding

 

1. Exceeded my ears expectations ; 2. Network enabled apps ; 3. Powerful

Not worth an egg removal, but I wish Pioneer would have included wifi/bluetooth with it
