Pioneer VSX-1023-K 7.1-Channel 4K Ready AV Receiver
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Good receiver for price/category 11/14/2013

This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1023-K 7.1-Channel 4K Ready AV Receiver

Pros: 6 HDMI's
HDMI pass through for video and audio
Programmable IR remote
Excellent digital audio decoding
Phone app interface and music streaming

Cons: No back lit for remote
No decoder for analog to digital (the vsx-1123-k supports this and is an additional $100)

Other Thoughts: I've used this receiver for 2.5 months at the time of writing this review, and I'm very satisfied with this purchase.

You do require some tech knowledge for proper configuration of your home theater environment.

I purchased this device strictly as an HDMI receiver for my Home Theater PC. At the time of purchase, the unit came with Pioneer's SP-FS51-LR tower speakers at no additional cost. I completed the 7.1 surround with NXG's NX-BAS-500 sub and Pioneer's SP-C22 with 4 x SP-BS22 speakers.

Primary audio sources for testing:
Bluray DTS-HD 7.1/5.1, DTS-EX, SACD

Other audio sources:
320k mp3 and FLAC over wifi

It's hard to describe this system without having it turn into an article. The system has fine tuning for the advanced audio enthusiast but still has a quick configuration setup that does a pretty good job for the novice.

The phone app does a good job controlling the receiver. It also allows quick and easy streaming of your favorite tunes from your phone over LAN.

The unit does support Zone 2, but you will have to choose between 7.1 or 5.1 audio with zone 2 .

The IR remote has limited program-ability to work with a wide range televisions.

The unit also has HDMI pass through which lets you watch tv from and HDMI source without having the receiver on.

Last firmware update now supports Spotify.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works well when it works.

Cons: Limited game support, known connectivity issues to android devices

Other Thoughts: The device is comfortable and sturdy, but the connectivity issue makes it moot. Recommendations - wait for a better controller.

SanDisk 16GB Cruzer CZ36 USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Class 4-5 at best 11/24/2011

This review is from: SanDisk 16GB Cruzer CZ36 USB 2.0 Flash Drive

Pros: The read times aren't too bad

Cons: Write times are terrible. This is a class 4-5 drive at best. Write speeds are on average of 4.7 mb/s. My external 2.5 inch sata easily out performs this for on the go purposes.

Other Thoughts: If it doesn't state the read/write speeds, it's not worth your time.
