Summary: Although discontinued, this family of receivers are fantastic. It comes with a microphone on a 25' cord- You position the microphone where you sit and tell the unit to calibrate to the acoustics of the room. It takes about 3 minutes to calibrate my theater consisting of 9 speakers. No need to hire an audio technician every time you change the room, carpets, or drapes. It easily powers my speaker system, handles all of my video and audio inputs, and two sub-woofers (7.2).
Summary: From day one, the Pioneer VSX-1121 has exceeded my expectations. The price point was well below the Elite series, but the functionality is right up there with the big boys. Highly recommended.
Summary: Great home theater receiver with lots of features. Pioneer has always been my choice when it comes to affordable, quality audio equipment. I would recommend this receiver to anyone looking for a quality receiver.
Summary: The receiver works and sounds great with my 5.1 setup (Mission speakers). The sound quality of the receiver is good enough and plenty loud enough for me. There may be better quality receivers but probably not at the price of this one, especially with AirPlay built-in. It was very easy to set up with the Pioneer iPad App for configuration that showed me how to wire everything based on the devices and speakers I was connecting -- great App -- only read the manual because I...
Summary: I have now owned the Pioneer VSX-1121-k for almost a year. I upgraded from another Pioneer Receiver about 4 years old. The VSX-1016-k I had still worked great, but the surround processing and lack of HDMI options made it a little dated. I was very pleased at how easy the installation of the 1121 was. I had everything up and ready in under 1 hour including all speaker connections.
Summary: this is a very good receiver ..it have all.. that you'll need and some...when it comes to sound/Q ..its very good top marks ...and the video/Q.. is very good to with the Qdeo chip..wow and if you pair this unit up with a pioneer bluray player you will enjoy all the wonders on H.D PICTURE AND SOUND....
Great product but be aware that the description on amazon is not correct.

Summary: This is a great reciever and highly recomended. replaced a denon 1912 and couldn't be happier. sounds better and is easier to use. Airplay is smooth and works well unlike the denon. Please note that the reciever does not 12 volt triggers even though it says so in the decription.
Summary: Full disclosure: I have power amps so use this product as a pre-amp only. But setup is easy, level setting is easy with the enclosed microphone, the iPhone app is handy, picture and sound are good, the unit looks nice, etc. For some of my legacy systems (e.g. my old-skool LaserDisc player...yes...my LaserDisc player) only has an s-video out as its best video output. S-Video is not supported by this unit. I'm still happy with my purchase.
Summary: Like anyone else of course, we did a lot of research. A friend recommended the Elite line, however, some reviewers pointed to the fact, that the VSX-1121 is essentially the same receiver as the VSX-52 for ~30% less - a no-brainer decision. Pros: So we got it and the sound and picture are superb! The iOS app is very well designed, fast, easy to operate and has good graphics. The overall appearance of the box is quite cool and has no dubious ElitE logo on the from lid :o).
