Hello Av Forum'ers!

I hope you can help with this topic and give me a few pointers and advice.

I am currently in the process of purchasing a Amp. I have been reading and researching, many suggestions have also come back with the same answer. Pioneer VSX 921 - i need some advice why i should get this one, how will this benefit me.

currently setup wise, i have the following, LED tv, Apple Tv, Ipad, Ps3. As I am quite new to this game, I know what i want but how to get there with the correct options im not sure of.

Anyhelp appreciated. :lease::boring::love::thumbsup::cool:

Hi, it would be useful to know what 5.1 surround speakers you have to connect to the Pioneer VSX-921? The 921 offers very good value with 80W x7 channels power output, 4 HDMI's in/ 1 out which will connect directly to your TV, Apple TV and PS3. Your iPad can connect to the front panel USB port. As the 921 is a network receiver, you can stream music from your network to the 921, or use the iPad to control the 921 using the free app iControl AV2.

Hello mate, currently I don't have any speakers or sub. That's next on the list, i used to have some samsung whole package setup, but was not all that at all hence why I sold everything and now building on a setup.

As for the 921, is it all bluetooth/wireless or does it need to have a cable attached to the ipad in order to control?

80x7 channels power output is useful, i have not yet decided on what speakers or sub for that matter, but I just wanted to know whether the 921 is useful for what I need it for.

For BT/wireless features you have to buy the optional adapters.
To control the 921 through iPad, download the app iControlAV2 from Apple store and put them in the same home network.
