Pioneer VSX-922 review

 

Price cut puts this Pioneer back in the race

Excellent control app ; Feature-packed ; Network functionality ; Detailed, powerful, accurately placed sound

It doesn’t have the very last word in dynamics or subtlety

A highly specified all-round performer that excels at its new price point

Pioneer VSX-922-K

 

Now completely outclassed by newer rivals

Feature-packed; excellent control app; detailed sound; sweet treble

Can be bettered for subtlety and dynamics; poor timing in stereo; busy remote

In isolation, the Pioneer VSX-922-K is a capable and feature-rich amp. However, the benchmark set by rival machines such as the Sony STR-DN1030 and Yamaha RX-V673 is ridiculously high. And on this occasion, it’s a stretch too far for Pioneer.

Pioneer VSX-922 review

 

AV behemoth is suited to all sources and backed up by the best control app in the business

Packed with features; awesome app control; fast and exciting sound

Can sound feisty with forward speakers; possibly too many audio tweaks; limited GUI

Pioneer VSX922K

 

The Sony VSX-922 was a replacement for my Dennon which I have only had for 18 months. The Sony is such a better unit all round, it has bundles of power, great all round sound and looks good. Was over priced now a fantastic bargain.

Set up procedure is long winded
