I have a 1021k with Energy speakers and sub in a 7.1 setup. I'm pretty happy with the sound and love the iOS control. It's buggy at times but overall quite nice to stream audio to it.
I know that this model has been replaced with the 1022 and this year another new model will surely be released (soon?). I also see lots of talk about Pioneer Elite...
I would greatly appreciate some advice if I were to stick with Pioneer, as to possible and recommended upgrade paths. Thanks!

You should wait and see the new models that are coming out soon. I own a denon 3311 and a pioneer 1222 and the pioneer is way better on terms of audio definition. Its really awesome. 1021 has advanced mcacc in which personally i consider it way better than audessey xt. My whole system got a new life with this receiver.

Onkyo is going to release new avrs by march. I believe pioneer sometime after onkyo. If you want to stay with Pioneer I really recommend you to get pioneer avr with D3 amps. A friend of mine has 1021; same as you and if you have nice ears you can notice the difference between d3 amps and ab amps. 1021 is a good avr, 1121 too. But for tne price of 1121 you can get the 1222 for $550 new! (newegg).
