Summary: We bought this receiver 3 years ago hoping that it would last. When we first got it, it sounded great. After 2 years, we noticed the left side channel cutting lout intermittently. The problem has gotten worse and Pioneer was no help in correcting it.
Summary: Hello I purchased a vsx 1121k in dec of 2012. I admit it was the best avr I had ever purchased. At about the second year, the hdmi out started going crazy. I regret after discussing with many repair people that the hdmi board in all pioneer avrs are flaky and widely known for hdmi failures.
Summary: intermittent HDCP errors although all of my a/v components are compliant. as of two days ago, the unit won't recognize any HDMI connections or speakers. I've had the unit for 2yrs, and of course it's out of warranty, so pioneer won't do anything to assist - they basically blamed other components for...
Summary: Bought this in December of 2011, it just died! This is first receiver out of five to ever stop working, what a shame. I still have an old Yamaha from the early 90's. They don't make receivers like they used too.
Summary: We loved our Pioneer VSX-921-K, so when it came time to get a receiver with HDMI capabilities, we got the VSX-1121-K. As other reviewers have stated, it's a great device... when it works. I'll let you read other reviews to find out the positive side of this unit, but I'm here to vent...
Summary: No picture, No sound. After 3 months of light use it completely failed. Great receiver, while it lasted. Will be switching to the Yamaha receiver at this point. After reading reviews by others, I don't have much faith in the longevity of this unit.
Summary: While this may not considered a review, this is my experience with this unit. First let me say that when this unit works, it is great. The sound and iPad interface are my favorite features. That being said, this is my experience with this unit.
Summary: Purchased this new on Amazon. Features were fine... when it lasted. The video card burned out after 6 months. It has now been at the repair shop for warranty repairs for 1 month, with no ETA for the repairs. Pioneer support has been unhelpful. I'm throwing in the towel and buying another brand.
