Also known as: Pioneer VSX-1021
The VSX-1021 offers broad source connectivity with 8 HD inputs including 6 x HDMI.
Besides 7.1 surround sound in HD and a digital connection with your iPod, iPhone or iPad without dock, you get easy-to-operate worldwide internet radio (vTuner) and network streaming via DLNA or Apple Airplay when you connect via LAN (adapter for wireless LAN available). LPCM, WAV, FLAC and other lossless formats are supported.
Compatible (free) smartphone/tablet apps include the advanced remote control app iControlAV2 and Air Jam, a Bluetooth-based social app.
Intelligent speaker calibration
Surround speakers can hardly be ideally positioned. MCACC therefore analyses the existing sound field using a microphone (included), just like a sound professional, and adjusts the sound timings to precision-tune the system to your room.
Digital Direct connection with your iPod, iPhone or iPad
No need for a dock – you can plug your Apple device directly in the receiver. Thanks to the digital connection, you get the best possible audio quality (further enhanced by the Advanced Sound Retriever). Furthermore you can view photos and videos on, and stream apps like YouTube to your TV.
Stream with AirPlay
Apple’s AirPlay lets you wirelessly stream music from any compatible device like a Mac, iPhone or iPad. This means you can easily enjoy your iTunes music library through your AV receiver.
Stream with DLNA
DLNA is now widely supported on PCs, laptops, smartphones and other devices. This receiver being DLNA certified, you can easily stream audio and video from such a device using your home network.
The remote of the future
iControlAV2 is our 2nd-generation app that lets you control all important receiver functions from your smartphone or tablet. Control playback, select an input, adjust listening modes and change sound balance and emphasis from one app. Available for Android and iOS, with an extra dedicated interface for the iPad.
Music listening made social
Air Jam is a Bluetooth-based app that lets a group of people connect with their iPhones, iPod Touch or iPads and add their songs to the receiver playlist. Participants can see which song was, is or will be playing – a great way to share and discover tunes. Requires iOS 4.2 with iPhone 4/3GS/3G, iPad or iPod touch (2nd gen. or higher).

not 419 retailers nor anyone on eBay,
but please don't worry even if it hurts,
