Released April, 2010
The Pros:Not only 5 HDMI in the back, but an extra HDMI in the front for temporary connections such as video cameras. IControlAV iPhone app allows volume control and input switching. GUI displays the position of each speaker while configuring, eliminates confusion.
The Cons:Receivers switches to "TV/Sat" every time it is turned on by default, settings to fix this are hard to find. IPhone connectivity needs to operate via Internet connection, isn't stable, and can't switch Internet radio stations. Front cover cheaply constructed, a flimsy pop-out flap.
The Pioneer VSX-1020-K is a 7.1-channel, iPhone-compatible A/V receiver released in Spring 2010. It sits in-between the weaker VSX-920-K (which doesn't support iPhone Remote Applications) and the VSX-1120-K (which adds along PC Control).
