Pioneer VSX-920-K Receiver: Maximum Connectivity with the Latest High-Definition Audio and Video Standards
The Pioneer VSX-920-K delivers amazing home theater performance in an elegant package at a surprising value. With connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components and digital 1080p upscaling from any source, the VSX-920-K takes performance a step further with support for your digital media via a front USB input and compatibility with Bluetooth sources (using the optional AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately). Plus, it's "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can incorporate your favorite Apple products into your home theater easily.
The Ultimate iPhone Experience--Now In Your Home Theater
Included cable makes integrating your favorite Apple products a breeze
Bluetooth capability (with AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately)
lets you play music wirelessly from your Bluetooth-enabled portable devices
Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater. Thanks to the VSX-920-K's "Works with iPhone" certification, you can enjoy music, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, and more. An included USB/composite video cable makes connecting your iPhone to share your favorite media easy--and your iPhone charges automatically when connected. Unlike other receiver lines, there's no need to buy a separate dock to enjoy your iPhone with your home theater. This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, Nano, and iPod Touch.
Share your videos, and enjoy music with full album information on your TV. Your iPhone's wireless and network features remain fully functional and music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the VSX-920-K's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive text GUI.
Plus, your iPhone's music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files. So even in a big room, you'll get much closer to the artist's original intent from your iPhone, iPod or other MP3 player. And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.
Release Your Smartphone's Music with the AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately)
For wireless connectivity, add a Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) to release your music from your iPhone, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. And the VSX-920-K's Advanced Sound Retriever technology makes sure that even your compressed MP3s are brought back to near cd-quality sound.
How Pioneer's Technology Delivers the Ultimate Home Theater Experience
Connectivity for all your home theater components. View larger
All of Pioneer's latest receivers support the latest HDMI specification, meaning that you're not just getting the most out of your existing movies and music, you're preparing for the next generation of 3-D video content with the VSX-920-K. And with 4 HDMI inputs, you've got plenty of connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today.
1080p Upscaling from Any Source
Anchor Bay® and PureCinema video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, including analog. PureCinema's extra processing of 3D noise reduction and Y/C color separation ensures you'll get the best picture possible from anything you've got.
True-to-Life, High-Definition Audio and New Dolby Pro Logic IIz
Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support high-definition audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® movies a soundtrack that's true-to-life. But Pioneer adds an extra dimension with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIz across its entire 2010 line of receivers, which adds a "height" channel for an even more immersive experience.
Total Control with Custom Pioneer Technologies: Acoustic Calibration, Advanced Sound Retriever, and Auto Level Control
Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance.
Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process. This technology also enhances the audio quality of SIRIUS® Satellite Radio and can realize an upper limit frequency of 20kHz with compressed audio playback for surprising audio richness and clarity even from "lossy" digital audio sources.
Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from an iPhone or iPod or during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring "blare" when switching audio sources.
All of these technologies come together in the VSX-920-K to deliver a powerful level of control and sophistication for your home theater.

Top Customer Reviews
Looks and design: Classy black - got the spouse approval. However, like the 820-K, the cover of the front USB and video/audio ports is not connected to the receiver - it's a piece of plastic that you have to take out completely if you want to hook up a USB device or any source to the front connectors. I wish it had a permanent connection because I can completely see it getting lost. Reduced one star for this.
Sound: Great. I used to have a 10-year old Denon 5.1 receiver which I loved. I think that sound quality of this Pioneer with movies is pretty much the same as my old Denon. The sound quality when playing plain music though is much much better than the Denon - just cleaner. I don't consider my self an audiophile, but I'm very happy with the sound (connected to a 5.1 Onkyo speaker set up).
Video over HDMI looks good. My Wii is connected through analog RCA cable to the receiver and the video is up-converted (if that's the correct term) and comes through the single HDMI connection to the TV. Motorola Cable box and Media Center PC are also connected through HDMI and work great with no issues at all. No need to switch inputs in my TV anymore which simplifies life and the macro operation of my universal remote control.
Setup is pretty usual for receivers, you will not understand many features and setup options unless you bother reading the instructions.Read more ›
I would highly recommend this receiver to anyone that is on a tight budget and wants to get a lot for less out of pocket expense.
The video up-convert feature doesn't really make much difference to me...you aren't going to get a picture that looks like a blu-ray disc, so don't expect such. But the 1080i and 720p that are broadcast come through (to my eyes) as good or slightly better than when sourced straight to the TV from the cable box. Wii, which outputs at 480p, doesn't look that much better either, but I love having sound through the tuner now instead of previously using the TV sound due to lack of connections on old receiver.
I ran into an HDMI handshake issue wherein the picture would turn pink/purple upon changing a channel. Turns out it was the older cable DVR box. Switched to a newer one I had in another room and all good.
All said, it does what it should, quickly change from watching TV/cable to DVD or Wii with only one button press, including sound.
easy audio/video switching between sources
4 HDMI in and 1 out
great sound from all sources
price-under $300 for features that some charge $500 for
nice audio setup program to optimize sound from each speaker (cheesy on-screen interface but it works)
good rear connection layout...Read more ›

I noticed a few months ago that it lost 2 of its speaker output jacks.
Also, it doesn't have input jacks for a turntable

This is a very nice unit. Overall I am satisfied with it, the sound it gives is very good. The only thing I'm not happy with is the input for blue ray quit working shortly after... Read morePublished on October 20, 2013 by JRM
I expected much more from this unit. I had owned the 919-k which is the previous model and it blew this out of the water. Read morePublished on September 9, 2013 by Proangler19
