Pioneer VSX-821-K
2.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Apr 19, 2011

The Pioneer VSX-821-K is an iPad compatible home entertainment receiver that will be released with three other models for 2011. Included USB cable means no special docks are required to connect your Apple device and it will charge as well so you can keep it connected to download and watch videos, movies, photos and web content like Youtube, and, stream songs from iTunes of course. This unit features 5.1 channel audio like the entry level VSX-512-K, and has the same amplifier as that model and the 7.1 channel VSX-921-K with 110 watts per channel power handling. For slightly better power handling, Apple AirPlay compatibility and Ethernet, the top of the line VSX-1021-K is the way to go, although all may be used in conjunction with an optional Bluetooth adapter for streaming directly from a portable device. On screen display helps for navigation of the menu and its functions when connected to ... PROS: (1) good integration with the iPhone, gives you full access to the functions and charges it (2) audio setup is easy enough for new users, doesnt take much time (3) well-written manual explains all of the functions involved (4) HDMI connection works right away, very plug-and-play ... CONS: (1) on-screen menus are a little blocky and ugly looking (2) doesnt upconvert anything, just sends signals through as-is (3) front cover over the USB port is a little flimsy, feels like its going to come right off (4) USB port is in the front at the center - couldnt be more awkward with organizing wires
