Pioneer is well known among home theater enthusiasts for generally putting together a quality piece of hardware. Sure, it may not always be top of the line, but it will generally be a good value, and sometimes, that’s good enough. And in the case of the Pioneer VSX 1019AH-K receiver, it’ll also be an excellent description of the product itself.
The Pioneer VSX 1019AH-K is a seven channel surround sound receiver with HDMI with 1080p video scaler, analog-to-HDMI upconversion, four HDMI inputs, iPhone compatibility, Dolby TrueHD and a color GUI output.
See, there’s definitely plenty of value here. in fact, the only real problem I had with the unit is that it’s got this port cover on it that, when you go to open it, basically just pops off, so unless you’re ready with a hand underneath it you’ll just wind up dropping it on the floor. That’s not good for anybody.
But considering they only want five hundred bucks for this, I think you’ll all agree with me that the Pioneer VSX 1019AH-K is a good solid unit that should take care of most of your needs.
