Delivering remarkable performance in an elegant package, it's a receiver designed with advanced technology that performs exquisitely in the moment, while at the same time never taking its eyes off the future.

The VSX-1021-K is also compatible with the advanced remote control app iControlAV2 and Air Jam, a Bluetooth-based social app.
Five 3D-ready HDMI inputs take care of high-def content, such as lossless audio from Dolby or DTS, and 1080p video scaling. A front USB port lets you connect your portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play music files with album art support. Pioneer's interactive AVNavigator walks you through speaker set-up, MCACC room calibration, sound optimization, firmware updates and more using your networked PC, while a full-color user interface on your connected TV lets you navigate your content with ease. This is one truly well-rounded AV receiver.

You can even use the receiver to view metadata including song title, artist as well as album art on a connected display.
