This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1022-K 7.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver
Great features, good sound quality, no problems with video.
No wireless, difficult to figure out how to set it up. Slow acquisition of HDMI signals. Remote is not backlit.
Make sure you use MCACC setup to start her going. Those who have complained about "tinny" audio or lack of bass: either your speakers are weak or you didn't set the speakers up correctly. This receiver has an internal active crossover that filters at 100 kHz to the sub or "large" speakers. If you have no sub and no "large" speakers, you will not hear (or hear very little) bass. You need to (1) set the active crossover lower (I have mine at 80, and thinking 50 is better) and (2) set your bass-capable speakers to be "large" speakers in the manual setup. Further, if you have no sub (I do not, my fronts have 12" woofers), you have to make sure that the sub is turned off in the manual setup. Also, make sure no channels are turned on that you are not using.
