I toyed with getting this last time it was on sale at bestbuy for this price. Only 4 hdmi was concerning and various AV forums say that pioneer/Onkyo receivers have terrible reliability. Will continue to wait for a Yamaha deal

FWIW, I have a Pioneer VSX-1018 receiver that I've owned for 9 years now. Works just like the first day and it's used every day.

I have the VSX-LX101 (last years model) and I'm confused as to why they dropped from 6 HDMI inputs to 4. 6 inputs is perfect for most people, 4 seems to be an unnecessary reduction IMO.

I was able to purchase my LX101 from Best Buy with an open box discount for about 250 bucks, and I feel I got a great deal on it. 300 for this one, with lesser inputs, seems to be not a great deal.

If you can find the LX101, I'd recommend that simply because it has more inputs.

Good price but still tainted after getting the denon 1400h for $250 and they are in the same class

But if ur die hard pioneer fan or already have pioneer and want to use one app / one set of remote codes or have no reason to hold out and need all the current gen support this has then not bad at all.

If u have decent speakers and plan to use for surround id splurge more on the 50x and higher models - the D3 amps in those are really good, powerful with great sound and produce much much less heat than even lower powered non digital amps/AVR's

If u just want more for Video/HDMI distribution and centralization and non audio specific features or have highly sensitive or lower end speakers or just pushing 2-3 channels (or 5-7 channels at low volumes) you will be happy at this price

Yes limited hdmi's but at this price its acceptable. Onkyo and denon give more inputs if needed at this price/class

I have the series after that. I have had great success with pioneer products.Unfortunately, pioneer was bought out by Onkyo I while back. Thank you has had major quality issues for a long time and now pioneer is corrupted as a result.

The lx101 has 6 inputs but only 3 are full 4k 60p

The 102 has all 4 of its inputs supporting all features / hdr10/ D-vis/60p/4:4:4/ etc

101 may not have dolby vision at all and not the full suite of HDR color ranges

Id much rather have 4 no compromise ports than 6 that only have 3 that support the emerging/current tech

But its user/use case that matters

Most tv's have very few full feature hdmi ports so the non 60p / 4k ports u can use for the 2 you are missing

But u cant do that to get more fully featured / full support 4k ports and thats the direction tech is headed. So unless ALOT less $$ or ur ok with maybe not having enough 4k/60p/hdr 10 / etc ports one day id avoid the last gen especially at same price

Its like when people say seagate are the worst drives. The more volume sold the more total complaints. Id not worry about it. Especially on a $300 avr. Theres no guarantees that any brand will outlast another in this space. And every gen / model / year is different

Onkyo had a bad hdmi period, and hitachi sold "death star" nicknamed drives for a while. (Deskstars that failed miserably)
Now people pay a premium for hgst drives and always gets tons of TU too.
Pioneer had a couple lemons buy they also constantly innovate in the AV space.

I was not aware of that, if true, it's unfortunate. I like that receiver a lot. I tried Yamaha, Denon and Sony before ultimately getting the Pioneer.

LX101 got support for Dolby Vision passthrough in a firmware update just a month ago or so.

No support for HDR10 that I'm aware of yet, but I'm sure it can't be far off.

How can it have Dolby vision support but not HDR10? I thought to get Dolby vision it has to meet and exceed the HDR10 standards? How bizarre

Idk, I'm not an electrical engineer haha.

I just know that they added DV support in December via a firmware update. I've yet to see anything about HDR10 support though.
