The editors didn't like

  • Pioneer only offers a one-year warranty

  • So ...
  • No AirPlay video
  • Just audio. RCA cable for video input from iPad. Physical remote control is what it is. You have to shell out extra coin for wireless options.
  • Occasionally spotty DLNA performance
  • Very expensive WiFi dongle
  • Poor audio performance when played at high volume
  • Expensive wireless adapter
  • Limited internet music access
  • One-year warranty
