Summary: We had an Onkyo and one of the html ports stopped working and it would take forever to handshake so I looked for a new replacement. What I love about this one is the second zone. We have the second zone wired to our kitchen and it's on most of the time while the main receiver (zone) is off which saves power. I'm not an audiophile and we mostly use to this watch movies and tv which is works well on and it looks pretty nice.
Summary: I will never buy Pioneer again ! After 14 months the unit stopped sending out video signal. Took it to get repaired and it will cost over $400 to fix. Don't buy Pioneer. I will stick with Sony.
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. This worked great with the Blu-Ray and my other 15 or so components (with an 8-port analog switcher for the older pieces), for about 3 months. Everything sounded great, and appeared to work fine.
Summary: after water damaged (flood) ruined my old marantz receiver, it got replaced by this. well no regrets whatsoever ! the technology is great, sound is excellent, ipad/iphone app is awesome. setup is easy, there is not one thing i could criticize this product on- keeping the price/quality in mind.
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. In fact, to duplicate the feature set on this AVR, you need to go to the Elite line, and step up one model from the entry level model in the Elite line. Only available at B&M retailers, you will pay $800 for this AVR.
Summary: Synch with iPod very seamless and easy to navigate with remote; iPhone and iPad users will have to provide their own feedback. Basic operation with remote is not too difficult, though the manual is absolutely necessary when making infrequent adjustments.
Summary: I am another victim of the Onkyo TX-SR606 failing HDMI board. The 1120-K a million times better in sound. Layed a usb fan, plugged into front usb port, on the top vents to keep it cool always.
Summary: I replaced an Onkyo TX-SR606 which had a failed HDMI board and am very impressed with the Pioneer. It has considerably more power than the Onkyo. The sound is crisper using the same speakers in a 7.1 setup. The video is sharper. I've had Onkyo receivers since 1994, but after my last two died prematurely due to failed capacitors I decided it was time to switch brands. After much research I narrowed my choices down to this and a Yamaha RX-V667.
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. It's unfair to compare two products from different price range..but if you're like whose budget ranges from $500-$700 then this review is for you.
Summary: I've been very happy with this A/V receiver. It has more than enough HDMI inputs and the radio stations are fairly easy to program. The IPad, HDMI, and USB connections on the front of the receiver have been very useful.
