Solid receiver. Supports many formats. Setup app needs some work.

Summary: The setup app via iPad was pretty handy, if a bit annoying. It walks you through all the connections, wiring, and speaker tuning. Unfortunately, if you add a device, you have to go through it all over again; you can't just fire it up and change a device name or connection. The unit itself is great.
Summary: I upgraded to this from a VSX-1123 to get the Class D3 amplification and I can sure tell a difference. My home theater uses legacy Pioneer HPM-100 front speakers and I needed something to drive them properly. This fills the bill.
Summary: We got this unit a month ago. Although, the software was very helpful in identifying the right hdmi etc connections, it still took me some time to configure it correctly. I am connecting the unit to two old maggies. The sound is good. Love the internet radio and pandora.
Summary: It's more than powerful enough for driving my inefficient 5.1 system, draws few watts, is quiet, and has an associated app that's actually useful and looks good (with a few questionable interface choices).

Summary: So I was really saving for an Onkyo 929, but Amazon has yet to move close enough to the $900 price point I was getting anxious. When they had this puppy on the one day sale for $549, I couldn't resist.
Summary: I previously purchased an Onkyo TX717 at a great price however it seemed to be lacking something. Then the internet radio feature stopped working and so I sent it back. Purchased the SC-1223 and it is fantastic.
Summary: Ich schließe mich den fünf Sterne-Rezensionen uneingeschränkt an. Einen Stern Abzug gibt es aber für die fehlerhafte RDS-Anzeige beim UKW-Rundfunk. Die ist lückenhaft und überschreibt oft nicht die vorherige Anzeige komplett.
