Mostly I think the home theater system arena is drastically changing, and has changed, for the average buyer and user. With all the amazing plug-and-play soundbar systems that have been coming out in the market, people have seen to forgotten about the good ol’ home theater set-up. But for those that really want their home cinema experience to the extreme, classic set-ups and a good A/V receiver is something that can’t be neglected. Pioneer has been around for so long they’re not even worried about competition and still rise high when it comes to quality receivers. Some of their units like the Elite Series have been listed on the best receivers lists of all times.

The feature we have to talk about in this modern marketplace we're go through right now is the streaming options. Everyone is looking for multiple streaming features and abilities, smartphones are probably the first and last thing you use every day, so why not stream music from it as well? Well, the Pioneer VSX-1022-K is ready to stream media from a wide variety of sources such as smartphones, tablets, PCs, select Android devices as well as thumb drives. If you're an Apple fan, lyou're in luck because Pioneer has got you covered; this unit is equipped with a front panel USB port (USB video cable included) that allows you to connect and access all your music, video and other media files without purchasing a separate dock. The unit has also has been upgraded to handle uncompressed 192Khz/24-bit FLAC and WAV music files for the highest level of performance possible. Don't like cables? Nobody does, that's why AirPlay is another great feature from the guys at Pioneer. Basically AirPlay allows you to stream your choice of music from iTunes, using your PC or Mac, iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. The feature will give you a whole lot more if you connect the receiver to a TV using HDMI ports; you can view song details like titles, artists, album and so forth.

You get all of the above, and it doesn't stop there. The Pioneer VSX-1022-K gives you the ability to connect the unit to your PC files or stream using Internet radio. The vTuner feature, will allow you to search through thousands of internet radio stations using your VSX-1022-K receiver. The VSX-1022-K is automatically ready to wirelessly pair up with any Bluetooth compatible device. Not only that, but using the Pioneer's exclusive Air Jam application for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad devices, will allow you to pair up to four different Apple devices via Bluetooth. For another great feature you just have to download Pioneer's exclusive ControlApp (Free), and take full control of your entire home theater system using your Android or Apple device.

Ok, streaming is well thought-out, but audio performance is a different thing. Let's see what Pioneer has incorporated this time; the VSX-1022-K will support formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, this will give your Blu-ray Disc soundtracks the best audio quality out there. Not only that, but Pioneer also includes all Dolby and DTS surround formats, including the brand new Dolby Pro Logic IIz height channel; all this using 7 channel power, featuring Pioneer's exclusive Auto Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system. The versatile speaker configuration includes 7 channels of amplification, and 9 channels of speaker connection to optimize your preferences as much as possible. The same as all new Pioneer receiver, this one supports the latest HDMI specifications.

Equipped with Anchor Bay video processing this unit allows you to upscale your picture to digital 1080p, and fit your every HDTV need. With those features and options, as well as the amazing price and discount I see no reason someone looking for an A/V receiver shouldn't opt for this one.
