High quality entry-level receiver
 
What's great about it: Easy to set up, sounds good, and looks like a high quality device What's not so great: No on-screen display over HDMI, useless front display, few settings I needed to replace an old Harman Kardon AVR 510 that served me well for over 10 years but recently developed problems. I initially bought a Denon AVR-1513, but that one couldn't maintain a reliable HDMI link with my other components and the TV, so I returned it and bought a Pioneer VSX-522-K. I also considered getting...

Great Network-Ready AV Receiver
 
I've owned this AV receiver for a couple weeks now and am quite happy with its performance. I opted to network it by connecting it via Cat6 cable to an 8-port Gigabit network switch, which is then connected to a universal WiFi adapter that is connected to the 5-GHz band on my dual-band WiFi router. I have been able to stream Pandora, Internet radio (vTuner), and audio/video via AirPlay from my MacBook Pro with iTunes without issue.I can confirm that the user interface experience is...

Excellent Receiver
 
Okay so I received mine and have been using now for about 3 weeks. This unit is fantastic. Every feature it claims to support, it does in fact support. Sound from the unit is more crisp than other receivers I have used in the past (mainly Onkyo). I bundled it with a Polk audio RM510 5.1 speaker system for $450 on Newegg.com (a total steal considering the receiver itself is $400). It shows how to use the Pandora directly in the users manual, no internet searching necessary. I would hardly conside...

Pioneer VSX-822-K OK but with room for improvement, and there are better options in that price range
 
I wanted a NETWORK receiver, controllable from my iPhone and with AirPlay, to play music in my living room replacing a PIONEER VSX-D912K which still works fine, but it is from the pre-ETHERNET, pre-AIRPLAY, pre-HDMI era; and I evaluated several receivers: PIONEER VSX-822K, DENON AVR-1613, ONKYO TX-NR616 and TX-NR515. Each of them has pros and cons. After reading reviews, comparing specs, features, prices, etc., I bought the PIONEER because it met my requirements and it was heavily discounted in ...

Broken just 14 days outside of warranty.
 
note: This review is for the VSX-1021-KI loved this receiver when I got it, as aside from the superior picture and audio quality, it also has an abundance of connection options that allowed me to connect all my peripherals.And it worked great for a year. A year and 14 days to be exact. It stopped functioning and a red light started blinking. I brought it into the shop and informed me I would have to replace the front display and control unit. The cost? $350.Ju...

Good but not great
 
Bought this to replace one of the notorious Onkyo receivers with the bad HMDI cards. That old Onkyo had wonderful sound but was worthless because of the HDMI problem. Would not see devices. The Pioneer lacks the punch of the Onkyo on the low end but is arguably a bit cleaner on the high end. And the sound imaging is good (I am running a 5.1 setup.) . Auto calibration is pretty lousy. Just do it manually, set the speaker size and distance yourself. It sounds a lot better. Network functionality i...

For what I paid it does the trick. but here are a few pointers
 
Just purchased the VSX-822K as a refurbished for less than $150. At that price I figured, even if I didn't love it, I could keep it for a year and replace.My motivation for purchasing was to convert my video connections from analog to HDMI. (My TV is of the age that it has only one DVI input. Its HD but over 5 years old.) By connecting cable box, BD, and PlayStation to receiver via HDMI, and using HDMI/DVI cable, the configuration is now all digital.I believe I am get...

Very Satisfied Customer
 
I have had my Pioneer VSX-1122-K for about a week now, and I love it. My previous receiver was a Pioneer VSX - 1021-K, and I had allot of HDMI handshaking issue's as well as a few other bugs that were very frustrating. Given all the issues I encountered with my previous receiver, I was hesitant to get another Pioneer. I am happy to say that I have NO issues with the VSX-1122-K at all! The handshaking issues are gone, and I have NOT encountred any bugs. The overall quality of the VSX-1122-K s...

love it - airplay is the BEST
 
Will mention that the first one I received was defective from factory - the original seller had me jumping through hoops a bit to get the unit repaired, rather than sending a replacement - with a little bit of pushback I received a new unit however.Onto the device itself:It's a great receiver - while I've not yet attempted to stream media from PC etc, it works absolutely as advertised. Great level of customizability (if that's your thing), but also extremely easy to setup for ...
