Feature Rich Receiver
This receiver has all the features I was looking for. 7.1 + 2 when I connect the Atmos speakers, 4K HDMI with Audio Pass Through, Equalizer settings for each speaker, Bluetooth audio, Airplay from any iOS device, A Pioneer app to change the setting with and many more I did not mention. Great Buy.

I bought this to replace an older VSX-822; it's a great step up, really nice clear sound, and Pioneer finally have stable firmware that's easy to follow (Owners of older machines will know how buggy it used to be).
Connected our outdoor speakers as a second zone and it handles the 6ohm speakers there just fine. In a perfect world I'd have preferred have a single button the remote to switch zones but that's not going to stop me giving this receiver the 5 stars it deserves.

Pioneer VSX 1131 plenty of power and functions.
This I bought for a video/music system in a car club. I had one guy tell me that twice he heard a putting sound in the audio while he was watching cable tv, so he turned it off then on again and it went away. I will have to wait and see if it happens again. Otherwise it seems fine and does the job.

Great receiver for the price
Great value, great sound. Software updates for DTS are now available. The only downside has been Bluetooth. The range on the Bluetooth is horrible. Less than 8 feet. My previous Onkyo had a Bluetooth range of 30 feet or more indoors even with obstacles. Everything else works well, including zone 2 powered output. Room EQ much better. You can manually adjust speaker by speaker including subwoofer with graphic EQ.
Auto set mode works well.
Need to get used to a volume control that goes way past 0db. Settings seem high for the power output to match previous system.
Missing the chromecast still, but it's promised

Stellar sounding receiver.
We just plugged in the new Pioneer VSX-1131 I got my husband for Christmas, and I must say it has a clear and rich sound. The unit is very attractive to look at with a shiny black design and blue digital letters and numbers when the power is on. We like that it has a lot of features, including blue tooth, but as yet we haven’t played with that feature.
It was pretty easy to set up, however a negative is the update. We also experienced the same issue that others have experienced when running the update. However, for the price this is a brilliant little receiver that offers a lot of features and high power

Great sound and easy setup, but wifi and app need fixed
This is a great sounding receiver and I love the on-screen setup. I would have given 5 stars if the WiFi control app worked. It does not work and I called tech support twice and they could not fix it. Also, the WiFi would not connect except through the iOS setup. I could not simply key in the password. This was a pain because I don't have an Apple phone. I had to have my brother use his. I was able to get the WiFi to work using my brother's iPhone, but the control app will still not connect. The problem is clearly with the receiver. Pioneer has some work to do to get the WiFi and app working the way they should.
I like the receiver and recommend it despite the problems above.
