This receiver was a woot deal sometime last year for $299. It's a nice receiver, and the airplay is really convenient.

@jcl945: I'm trying to convince the wife it's time to upgrade :D

Woot did have this last year and I purchased it, it is an awesome receiver, amazing sound; easy to set up; however, something happened to the HDMI ports on mine, I contacted Pioneer and they sent it for repair, it could not be repaired, so they swapped it out for this years model the 1122K.

I think the price is great but i did some research and read some reviews saying the video quality was degraded when feeding through the unit. Anyone know if they could have fixed this with a firmware update or could it be caused by poor circuitry? Otherwise I would be down to get one.

@john69az: I purchased this about a month ago on Newegg for a similar price. I was worried about some of the reviews that complained about the video quality but decided to give it a try after hearing one at my local Best Buy. Since I've had it I have not had a single problem, I have 4 hmdi devices routed through the receiver, including a PS3 and HD cable box, and everything looks and sounds great! Its not a top of the line receiver but for the price I think it was an amazing deal.

There are a few things that could be better (The menus, the auto-detect feature, etc.) but nothing that makes me regret my purchase.

Overall 9/10 - Would buy again

I purchased this and the Polk Audio 5.1 audio deal they had on newegg for $450 (normally 1049.00). Im really happy so far, no video loss with the HDMI inputs. Would definitely purchase again...

This is a good receiver, but be prepared to be disappointed in Pioneer's Android and iPhone apps. They never update them, and the Android app is just a poorly adapted version of the iPhone app. I have a VSX-1021-K and they have already dropped support for it on their new control app. They do not update their apps, they just release a new app that drops support for older (last year's models) receivers. Their app for the 1021 crashes on ICS too, and they show now signs of correcting this issue.

@duscal: I agree, the apps are terrible, but they really don't add much functionality.

@jcl945: hi, Is this Pioner Model comparable with Denon AVR 2112CI

I had a Sony 7.1 receiver go bad after a few years, and while I have only have my Pioneer (I believe mine is one model above this one) for about 18 months - I have nothing but positive things to say about it. Great receiver, nice options, great quality, and especially for this price.

Wow, one of the best deals I've come across on woot ever! Now it's all mine :-)
