Pioneer VSX1020 reviews
There’s only one way to get closer to an artist’s true intent—and that’s to get as close as possible to exactly what the artist created. With this in mind, Pioneer ushers in an entirely new era of high definition stereophonic performance. From enjoying the very best 1080p high definition picture available to hearing every last nuance with award-winning audio capabilities, Pioneer’s range of receivers offers nothing less than a miraculous performance at every level. And with an ever-increasing list of connectivity and integration options as well, these receivers will also guarantee to get you closer to the original experience than ever before.
The Pioneer VSX-1020-K delivers amazing home theater performance in an elegant package. With connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components and digital 1080p upscaling from any source, the VSX-1020-K takes performance a step further with multi-zone support: choose either a 7.1-channel configuration, or create a second zone with 5.1 + 2 channels. And the VSX-1020-K brings extensive connectivity for your digital media via Ethernet and a front USB input, and compatibility with Bluetooth sources (using the optional AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately). Plus, it’s “Works with iPhone”-certified, so you can incorporate your favorite Apple products into your home theater easily. iControlAVR, a free iPhone app (downloaded separately), turns your iPhone or iPod Touch into the ultimate control center.
The Ultimate iPhone Experience—Now In Your Home Theater
“Works with iPhone” Certification Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Plug-and-Play Integration
Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater. Thanks to the VSX-1020-K’s “Works with iPhone” certification, you can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web content such as YouTube® and more. An included USB/composite video cable makes connecting your iPhone to share your favorite media easy—and your iPhone charges automatically when connected. Unlike other receiver lines, there’s no need to buy a separate dock to enjoy your iPhone with your home theater. This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, Nano, and iPod Touch.
Share your videos, and enjoy music with full album information and album art on your TV. Your iPhone’s wireless and network features remain fully functional and music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you’ve got lots of control options—use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the VSX-1020-K’s front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive, full-color GUI.
Plus, your iPhone’s music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer’s exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files. So even in a big room, you’ll get much closer to the artist’s original intent from you iPhone, iPod or other MP3 player. And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.
Pioneer’s Free iPhone App Turns Your iPhone or iPod Touch into a Powerful Control
Pioneer’s iControlAV (downloaded separately via Apple’s App Store) gives you total control over your home theater sound. With controls for master and per-zone volume, room calibration, and more, you’ve got a simple but powerful way to adjust your home theater sound any way you like.
The iPhone and iPod Touch’s accelerometer controls are used to control balance and emphasis—no confusing sequence of remote buttons to remember, just tilt and maneuver your Apple portable device until the sound is right where you want it.
Connectivity That Puts You Closer To Your Movies, Music, and Photos
Access Your Portable Devices, Internet Radio, Satellite Radio and More
In addition to connections for all your home theater components, a front HDMI input lets you conveniently connect high-definition devices like an HD camcorder to view your videos in all their glory in your home theater. A front USB port lets you connect your digital camera or portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play MP3, WAV, or WMA music files with full ID3 tag and album art support. And your options don’t stop with your portable devices. The Pioneer VSX-1020-K is your portal for SIRIUS® satellite radio (subscription required) and thousands of free Internet radio stations — all just a few clicks of the remote away.
Full-Color On-Screen GUI
There are more ways to control your Pioneer VSX-1020-K than just your iPhone. There’s a full-color on-screen GUI for use with the included preset remote, so you can make guided adjustments to your home theater sound.
