Solid, feature rich and excellent video processing!
 
I pitted this AVR against a Denon AVR-2311CI. The Denon is a older model that is replaced by the 2312. In any case these 2 excel in different ways. First the pioneer, the video processing is a stand out!! With the Marvel video processing chip the HD on this was simply stellar! It made my old TV look as if I bought a new one. I had an Onkyo TX-SR605 before these two were brought in to test out. The Video on that old Onkyo doesnt do my TV justice. Not to mention I had issues with the HDMI ...

Superb Quality A/V Receiver
 
This is the first mid-range receiver I have owned and this beast does not disappoint. Hook up of 7.2 surround system was not difficult and the instructions were reasonably comprehensible. I used banana plugs with all applicable connections and 16 guage oxygen-free wire. Used Pioneer's MCACC automatic sound tuning system and this went much smoother than anticipated. Blu-ray movies played via my PS3 sound at least as good as in a theatre. Airplay feature is awesome as is the internet radio ca...

Excellent sound and Video Processing
 
This is an excellent overall receiver. The video and audio processing are wonderful and overall sound quality is crisp and clear. To those that are complaining about the difficulty in setting this receiver up....I don't know what to tell you, the GUI is easy to use and the MCACC makes things very simple with the included microphone. Okay, on to the nitty gritty.The Looks of the receiver:This is a large unit, seriously, make sure you have enough room in your entertainment center fo...

Great sound, but too frustrating to use
 
BACKGROUND: I'm a home theater novice. Not an audio or video novice, mind you; I've just used my Beyerdynamic DT880s for everything imaginable since it's much cheaper to buy high-quality headphones than speakers. After going to a friend's house and being blown away by the surround sound of an NFL football game, I knew I had to get in on the action.As usual, I didn't have a lot to spend. I needed a complete setup under $900 that would sound good enough for everyday listening. It also ...

Lack of HDMI standby pass-through is a deal breaker...
 
I purchased this receiver after catching a terrific price on Amazon. Unfortunately, I soon discovered that the ability to pass a video and audio signal through an HDMI connection while the receiver is "Off" or on "Standby" is not possible.For those who want to watch TV through a Blu-ray player, cable or satellite, or another "black box," the convenience of keeping the receiver turned off is significant. Pioneer advertises that their new line of receivers has the ability to pass thr...

Both Pioneer receivers bombed out, died! Then I bought an Onkyo 809, which works!
 
Pioneer VSX-1121-K 7.1 Home Theater Receiver, Glossy Black... And listened happily ever after.Pioneer! How could you do this to me after i bought only Pioneer products for over 25 years... Including a Pioneer plasma TV!I bought the first Pioneer VSX 1121 stereo/receiver the first week of September and the HDMI section stopped working so I could not watch TV or the play the Blu ray player. Pioneer tech support said I could not fix it. Amazon agreed to replace t...

Too many glitches...Pioneer is no help!
 
After nearly a year I wish I had never seen this thing. It requires a full factory reset every few months. Now the Sirius internet radio feature has gone crazy. It changes channels on its own...and often says 'server error' Pioneer is clueless and suggested I take it on for service. Good luck on that! The service place is backed up a MONTH just to look at it. So I am supposed to do without this thing for a month or more? Pitiful service and a lousy product. If only Amazon was like Costo ...

Not what I expected
 
This review is from: Pioneer VSX-1121-K 7.1 Home Theater Receiver, Glossy Black (Electronics) I bought this reciever because I got a good deal on it, while it sounds good and has plenty of connectivity, it is not very user friendly, the on screen guide is plain and cheap looking,no background art, and no overlay. I'm comparing to yamahas which is better(my opinion). It took a while to set up the auto calibration had my speakers jacked all the up to max with not the much loudness...

No Need to buy expensive Pioneer's Wireless network adapter.
 
Excellent system.Since I don't have means to connect in a wired network, as per one of the reviewer's post, I bought WNCE2001 ( NetGear Universal wireless adapter ). The setup was very simple and works great and I didn't see any issue with range and the sound is clear and crisp. I am glad I didn't spend highly expensive pioneer's wireless adapter. I am hoping such universal equipment is available for bluetooth adapter too.

Great Receiver
 
This is a great-sounding, full-featured receiver. Although I've ready many reviews about receivers having to be returned because of defects (few such reviews for this unit), this one appears to have arrived with everything working perfectly.With 7 HDMI inputs and a ton of features, it has far more capability than I'll ever use. The sound quality from HDMI sources and the iPod connections on the front were superb!Although I would absolutely recommend this unit, a few of it...
