First post. Hi, folks. Found you while researching the VSX-1020-K as a possible upgrade for my system.
Finally sold my classic Sony STR-DA777ES last night so that I could move into the HDMI world, clean up all the cables behind my A/V setup, etc, etc. I'll miss that 50+ lbs monster, but I'm excited to see how this feature-packed Pio fills its footprint, given how much technology has changed since I bought the Sony. I know the Pio won't have the same power that I'm used to, but I've been living in apartments for so long that I've barely tapped what the Sony can do since I've owned it (about 10 years).
I ordered the 1020 last night, right after I sold the Sony, so I should be receiving it in about 3 days. I just cleared out all my now unnecessary component cables, toslink cables, and my HDMI switcher, and now I have a much clearer slot into which I can place the receiver when it arrives!
