Introduction to the Pioneer VSX-1021K 7.1 A/V Receiver

Pioneer has consistently brought innovation and quality to the home theater market. From their famed Kuro plasma displays to its Elite brand AV receivers, Pioneer products have been easy to recommend. Pioneer's latest entry into the affordable spectrum of AV receivers is the 120-watt, 7.1 channel VSX-1021K. The VSX-1021K is deemed the "Industry's First AV Receiver Designed for iPad" and in this review I check out the interaction between iPad and VSX-1021 along with the performance and features.
