This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1022-K 7.1-Channel 3D Ready A/V Receiver
Pros: Sound is solid. Connectivity options are more than adequate. Easy setup with auto MCAAC. Works well in a medium sized room with 5.1 setup. Works well with Harmony remote.
Cons: After working intermittently (very frustrating) for a couple months, AirPlay and all other network functionality ceased entirely last week. Just sits there now saying "PLS WAIT"; appears to be a bad network card. Also does not connect to iPhone via the front USB port. One more nitpick, the OSD menus are depressingly retro in this day and age.
Other Thoughts: Main frustration here is the failure in such a short period of time, just outside the return window. Pioneer customer service is responsive, but wants me to ship unit for repair on my own dime, or drive to nearest authorized center 50 miles away - only open weekdays 9 - 6. I like the basic performance of the unit, but the added features that sold me on it are now making it a liability. I've read MANY similar complaints about the network connectivity - and no, I'm not just talking about the whole Pandora firmware update. If Pioneer can't offer a quality product with these features at this price, they shouldn't offer it at all.READ FULL REVIEW
