Your receiver powers your speakers and lets you connect and select your entertainment sources. But a great receiver does a lot more — it ignites your emotions. From the passion of a favorite musical artist, to the crossfire of a super-charged movie soundtrack, to the intensity and immersion of a fast-paced video game, your receiver is the key to experiencing and enjoying it in full.

You can depend on Pioneer's value-packed VSX-1022-K receiver to deliver solid home theater sound and flexible entertainment options for years to come. Pioneer has been in the business of manufacturing dependable and innovative consumer electronics for over 70 years.
Do more with your iPod, iPhone, or iPad
The VSX-1022-K works with your favorite Apple device, making enjoyment of your music library as easy as it gets. Just use the included USB/video cable to plug into the front-panel ports and listen to your favorite playlists through the best speakers in the house, or enjoy video content stored on your player. Your portable device entertains you while this receiver keeps it charged. And the USB port lets you play songs stored on most Android™ devices, or even a thumb drive. All of your digital music files get spruced up thanks to Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever, which restores lower-res recordings to near-CD quality.
Connect your iPhone via the receiver's front panel for audio and video.
Your music library goes global
The VSX-1022-K's Ethernet port opens the door to a world of fresh, new listening options. Access thousands of Internet radio stations, as well as music services like Pandora Internet radio, and music files streamed from your networked PC. Just think of the possibilities.
Apple's AirPlay technology lets you stream music from your iTunes library directly to the receiver, either from a networked computer or right from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch® (wireless network connection required). Not only do you get a fast and convenient way to listen to your favorites, but anyone in your home can stream from their player to share their latest find.
Your remote control is ringing
Connecting your Pioneer receiver to your Wi-Fi network has another great advantage — you can use your iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Android device to control the receiver. A free downloadable app turns your phone or tablet into an intuitive touchscreen remote that lets you change the volume, browse your music library, or select inputs. That's one remote in the house that you won't be likely to lose.
Spontaneous playlists with Pioneer's Air Jam
Air Jam technology lets you connect up to four iPod or Android devices to your networked VSX-1022-K receiver using Pioneer's Bluetooth adapter. With Pioneer's free Air Jam app, you and your friends can make a group playlist of songs from multiple devices — a great way to share music during a party. Or use the Bluetooth adapter simply to untether yourself from cables to play stored tunes wirelessly. Pioneer's Sound Retriever AIR technology was created specifically to enhance Bluetooth audio, so your wireless music will sound its best.
HDMI switching — the end of the wire jumble
If you've ever plugged multiple components directly into your television, you've experienced the bundle of cables that have to plug in back. The VSX-1022-K's HDMI inputs let you connect up to six high-definition sources for convenient switching, like a gaming console, Blu-ray player, HD cable box and more. And you'll only need to run a single HDMI cable to your television, reducing cable clutter. You get built-in decoding for the latest high-resolution surround sound formats, so you can enjoy master-quality sound with a wide range of Blu-ray titles.
The 1022-K also does a little high-tech magic on your non-HD video sources. It uses sophisticated video upscaling so older videos will look sharp. Plus the video will pass through HDMI to your television, saving you the trouble of remembering which input to switch to.
Simplify setup with the touch of a button
Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) delivers accurate home theater sound, customized for your specific room and speakers. It uses an included microphone to measure speaker characteristics like size, distance from the listening point, sound levels, and timbre, then calibrates the receiver's settings for maximum performance. All you need to do is sit back and enjoy the results.
