I finally received my Pioneer 1019 last night. I ended up staying up way too late last night setting this up. I purchased the Pioneer 1019 after a lengthy decision process between the Denon 1910, Onkyo 607 and Yamaha 765. I needed 4 HDMI so the earlier models wouldn't work and I was also limited in footprint depth so it was these 4. I went with the Pio because I've always been a fan of the sound and quality and each of the others had one or two things wrong (Denon not available, Onkyo quality issues (?), Yammy no assignable inputs). My one concern with the Pio going in was the revamped amps and the decline in weight. Would it impact quality of sound and power? Based on my early tests, NO. This unit has a great, clean sound with lots of detail at low levels and high. I did not hear any hint of strain.

While the unit is smaller and lighter than the 1018 it doesn't look `cheap' and it still has enough bulk to it to make you think it has power. It looks great in the rack. Remote is a bit confusing but I won't use that much after setup and the Harmony database had all the relevant codes, a nice surprise for such a recent release.

The Setup Process
It was pretty easy to get all of the speakers and components hooked up. The manual stinks but I had spent a fair amount of time with the manual online in advance and after a few reads you can fill in the blanks. It took me about an hour to get all of the old equipment out and the new equipment in. Assigning the inputs was relatively straightforward. Renaming inputs was awkward due to the way they handle text input but it was very flexible. I had a little trouble assigning the Optical audio signal from my Macbook along with an HDMI input. I first tried to assign the optical directly to an HDMI input but you can't do that.

I've had this receiver a week now, and so far, so good.

After getting a PS3 recently, I realized my current receiver was a bit dated, having no HDMI whatsoever, so, I began looking around for a replacement. This one was introduced at CES and I've kept my eye on it ever since. I've had Pioneer before and I've always been pleased with their receivers. I'm no Audio-phile (I don't need the uber-high end stuff), but I know good sound when I hear it, and this seemed like a good choice, especially with the features it has for the price. In particular, I wanted as many HDMI inputs as I could get (even though I only use one now, that will change) and a good video upscaler so I only need one output to the TV.

I considered a couple other receivers, namely Onkyo's new 607 as well as last year's models from Onkyo and Pioneer (including their low-end Elite receiver), but I picked this one for two main reasons:
First, the video upscaler goes all the way to 1080p. The Onkyo 607 only goes to 1080i.
Second, the Pioneer will convert the component digital signal to HDMI (needed for my Wii); the Onkyo does ONLY analog, no digital conversion, according to their specs.

The 607 did have a couple more HDMI inputs, but I felt the better upscaler would suit me better in the long run. This one also had more overall features and HDMI inputs than last year's models from either manufacturer (unless you wanted their higher-end $800+ units, which was more than I had in mind).

As I said, I've only had it a week, so I'll need more time to properly check it out, but so far I'm very pleased with it. The sound is great, the single remote now replaces my two previous ones, and it was easy to set up.

Let me first say setup was trial and error over a couple of days. I highly recommend even if you are a veteran of electronics to go sign up at avsforum.com cause those guys are a great help if you need questions asked. Okay to my review. This thing once you have it setup is amazing. This product is HOT literally.

My setup. I have a 50in. Samsung HLT5087SAX DLP TV with the LED Light Engine. Then I have a Samsung Blu-Ray BD-P3600 Player, Directv HR20 HD DVR, and an oldschool Xbox 360 via component cables w/ 5.1 DD.

OKay I have the Bluray and the Directv DVR going in HDMI to the receiver. I have the Directv audio going in as a optical digital cable since I ran into some screwups with HDMI audio not switching from standard def audio from HD audio. It was like I could hear audio on HD channels but not analog standard def channels. So the optical cable fixed that.

Blu-Ray sound is amazing. I can hear Dolby TrueHD and DTS HD Master Audio. It is phenominal. I use bitstream audiophile on the Bluray player so it sends the primary audio uncompressed for the receiver to decode. PCM also works great to hear the 2nd audios and third (menu/button press) audio, but I prefer the receiver to do the decoding. Also everything i have is HDMI 1.3 so man watching these Blu-Rays at 24FPS and hearing the movies is awesome.

Cool thing is and one of the major selling points was the HDMI upscaler. If you have component or analog source devices it will convert them to HDMI so you can leave the TV on HDMI1 input the whole time and just change the receiver sources on the receiver. My 360 did do component 1080p, but I had to bump 360 down to 1080i because the highest component signal that the pioneer receiver video scaler will do is 1080i.
