Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K for $110. Good buy?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have a chance to pick up a Pioneer VSX-1019 from a guy I know who's upgrading his system for $110. He lost the remote, but the receiver is in good working condition. Is this a steal for me?

I'm not too knowledgeable about receivers, but I do know the 4 HDMI imputs, and the 1080p upscaling would be a welcome addition for me.

Well . If anyone has thoughts on it let me know. I need to let him know tomorrow, because he wants to get it out of the house. Thanks.

For 110 bucks... it's well worth it. I have te 1018 and I still use it and love it.

If you don't like it, you would be able to sell it via Craigslist for at least that...

If you can buy the remote separately for a cheap price, or you have an existing programmable remote, then it's definitely a good deal. Of course, it also depends on what receiver you currently have (if any) and/or what specific features you're looking for.

it's going to be tricky to set it up without the remote. $110 with the remote would be great, but without it, I'd say no.

The VSX-1018 was a much better receiver than the VSX-1019. The 1019 lost about 10lbs of weight and some features from the 1018. The build quality isn't quite as good as the 1018. But still for $110 the 1019 is probably worth it. It would be nice to have the remote though. Does he at least have the calibration microphone?

The missing remote would be a valid reason to offer less.
