HDMI passthrough

Idahoslim, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: I have had one for seven months. Many good features. Far less heat than an equivalent Onkyo. Only annoyance is HDMI passthrough on quality cables frequently drops one of the three colors from video source to tv. Happens only upon start, never during viewing. Restarting receiver fixes problem.

Great receiver. Thanks Gold Box!

  • Summary: The only reason I looked at this device was that in 2013 it was on a Gold Box Deal and my friend had bought a Pioneer receiver recently and really liked it. When I saw the Gold Box Deal I couldn't believe they were offering it for half price. It's been a year since I bought it and I have loved using it.

Have owned the Pioneer SC-1223 for 1 year

Michael Moore, Amazon

  • Summary: Excellent!!! I bought this receiver last year on Dec 11th, 2013 for $549 on a 'Gold Box Deal'. I couldn't be happier with my purchase!!! I have owned high end stereo equipment for over 30 years and the sound quality of this receiver is as good as I have heard. To be honest before I purchased this unit I had a hard time admitting to myself a Pioneer unit for around 500 bucks could be considered audiophile equipment.

Simply Awesome. I purchased this unit a year ago

George Dold, Amazon
23 December 2014
  • Summary: Simply Awesome. I purchased this unit a year ago. The only issue I had was making the subwoofer work with Apple Airplay, I did a search and found that you make all the speakers "small" in the setup. The sound is very clear, even at high volumes. HDMI switching takes a few seconds but is not a big deal. Make sure the cabinet this unit sits in is well ventilated or put a fan in to keep everything cool.

Complete garbage. Went in to be fixed twice

Jay, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Complete garbage. Went in to be fixed twice. Once for showing garbled video feed when going through menu and another time for powering off immediately after turning on. 2 weeks later it's doing the same thing. Pioneer refuses to replace it. I have clean power going to the reciever and am not overloading it (only using 5.1). It's just a bad unit and they won't stand behind it.

Fantastic!

ewahl, Amazon

  • Summary: This receiver we picked up on sale for 50% off and what a deal! This sounds awesome and I love all of the extra features like AirPlay, Pandora, and internet radio. This is always on at our house either for the TV or for music. Very easy to set up. The app is really bad but that is the only negative thing about it.

Returned

Aaron B., Amazon
19 May 2014
  • Summary: The unit I received was damaged way more than I expected. Scratches and blemishes I could have dealt with. However the front face plate was partially off and dented, the whole unit would not sit level, and the USB port did not work. So it got returned, and amazon was great about it. I'm sure it is a decent receiver, but I didn't get the chance to use it much. The GUI looks fairly outdated.
