Summary: I loved the features at the pricepoint and loved this puppy from the outset. However, after months of use, the HDMI output doesn't work - PERIOD! Is this port the most important reason why one buys a receiver in the first place - i.e.
Summary: I won't lie, I really liked all the features I got out of my VSX-1120 but after 16 months of working it is now dead. Like others have stated in the negative reviews, mine was taken to an authorized service center and was told it would be close to $400 for repairs..
Summary: I thought this was going to be a nice unit, but since dealing with this, I refuse to EVER deal with Pioneer again... Maybe if I move to Japan, and can deal with the main company directly, I might, but *not* the US division.
Summary: coming from an Onkyo 606, which died on me after a year, due to the infamous HDMI switch board failure. i finally decided to pull the trigger on a higher end receiver. i was debating between the Denon or this Pioneer. i am glad i went with the Pioneer.
Summary: I have had Pioneer receivers, car radios, TV, laserdisc, etc since my first pioneer SX535. All except TV still work. This is the first unit that I would like to be able to return after using it for 6 months.
Pros: Auto audio calibration
Cons: 4 to 5 seconds to get picture between cable channel changes. If I switch video sources, even with ALL other devices unpluged, it keeps going to BD, will not stay on cable box. If I use 1120 for music (not video) then it reports back to the cable box and the cable box goes back to 480i resolution ...
Summary: Well, not much point to this review, except for those buying it used. Pioneer has replaced their line of Pioneer and Elite AVRs, dropping the VSX-1120-K. Note that the new line stops one model short of this model in price and feature set.
Summary: As other posters have noted, the HDMI ports are very bad on this unit. On mine the unit worked for 2 weeks max, then quit working. I troubleshot by using alternate HDMI ports and soon determined that the units HDMI went bad and unit was returned.
Summary: In the last 3 months I went from a Denon 3310, to a Pioneer 1120K to an Onkyo 808....so other than a sole product review I'm also going to be doing a little comparative review with my replacement the Onkyo 808. For starters, I paid $530 for the Pioneer 1120K and $680 for the Onkyo TX-NR808.
Summary: This receiver is great doesn't have the power my marantz 7001 had but it does quite well. I have HDMI through Directv box to receiver to 63 Samsung 8000 3D plasma with hdmi 1.4. There is a delay with the video initially when you power up everything or when you change the channel it doesn't show...
