Connectivity is Key
Smartphones have become a convenient and powerful way to stay connected to your favorite entertainment. Pioneer's new networked receivers give instant access to your favorite content and control options through smartphones and tablets. The VSX-1123 unleashes more music and video content in the living room and through the home, thanks to class-leading digital connectivity and flexible networking features.
The VSX-1123 features the latest Made for iPhone and iPad certification, which includes the iPhone5 and the iPad Mini. Since this receiver is networked, it also supports Apple's AirPlay wireless music streaming technology allowing you to wirelessly stream music from your iPhone, iPod or iTunes--running Mac or PC directly to the receiver.
That is just half the story. Pioneer is the only receiver brand with HTC Connect, the only unified approach for the Android platform for streaming music wirelessly from select compatible HTC smartphones. HTC Connect makes it easy to wireless stream your favorite music to your receiver, there is no need for a separate app, HTC Connect is built right into your phone's music player.
4K Ultra-HD Compatible, with Up-Scaling
4K x 2K resolution, usually referred to as simply "4K Ultra HD", is the latest high definition video display format, with four times the resolution of 1080p. The Pioneer VSX-1123 is ready not only to pass through 4K Ultra HD video signals to a compatible display, but also to upscale any content you want to watch, meaning it can support home theater systems dedicated to producing the highest quality picture available today.
Expanded HDMI Connectivity and MHL 2.0 Compatibility
Offering more inputs than comparable receivers, the VSX-1123 features 8 HDMI inputs, including support for both 3D and 4K Ultra HD sources. The front HDMI terminal is MHL 2.0 (Mobile High-Definition Link) compatible, letting you connect and control compatible Android devices. High-definition video can be displayed on your HDTV with multi-channel sound, while also charging your device. MHL 2.0 adds support for 3D content, 1080P 60Hz, and faster cell phone charging.
ECO Mode
The new, energy-saving ECO Mode found on all 2013 Pioneer AV receivers goes far beyond the conventional wisdom about "green" electronics, with a standby power consumption of only 0.1 watt when enabled. Our ECO Mode offers all of the convenience features of today's modern AV receivers, including Network Standby and HDMI CEC support, while reducing power consumption in both on and standby modes.
The intelligent ECO Mode analyzes your sources in real time, adjusting power consumption accordingly to meet your needs, or you can choose the power-saving settings that are right for you. You can control ECO Mode using the receiver's front panel, the included remote control, or the ECO Manager page of Pioneer's free iControlAV2013 for your smartphone or tablet. Now you can feel better about your entertainment experience without sacrificing power or features.
On Screen Display (Simple Overlay)
If your home theater system is hidden away in a cabinet or closet it is often difficult to know the current volume level or other status indicators of the receiver. This is where the On Screen Display feature comes into play. When turned on, On-Screen Display will overlay your receiver's basic information such as volume, input, and surround mode as you make adjustments using the remote.
Multi-Zone Audio
The VSX-1123 can be setup to use two of its seven amplifiers to power a set of speakers in a second room such as a bedroom or patio. This "second zone" can enjoy content that is different than what is be listened to in the main room.
A new Zone 3 HDMI Out (HDZONE) feature allows for routing either the same signal as the main zone or a separate source to a second zone via HDMI. All of this can be controlled effortlessly by using our new iControlAV 2013 IOS and Android application.
A Customized Home Theater Experience
The VSX-1123 features Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC), providing an optimized multi-channel listening experience by measuring every speaker's connection, noting its size and distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre in order to calibrate, customize and maximize performance specifically for your room.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Product you can't go wrong!

Pros: Very up to date with the very easy to use app remote control, air play and various ways to connect and play sound and music thru the receiver, they should have named it a SMART receiver because that's what it is it connects to the internet very easily and can be controlled with your tablet or smart phone. I never use the manual remote, the app is much easier to use to control the receiver. I think it took me less than 10 minutes to set up this receiver (I was switching out an older pioneer receiver which went out after it took a whole cup of orange juice spilled into it beware these receivers have an open grill on the top of the receiver and it's easy to spill things into the receiver) I am very proud of my purchase the receiver does go very loud I have it hooked up to a set of polk audio 510s which the speakers gave lasted me about 6 years I'm planning to buy another set of rm510 to get the 7.2 effect instead of my current 5.1 set up.

Cons: because of the vent on the top of the receiver you should always have it in a cabinet or under a table, it will be tempting to sit things on top of the receiver such as a cup or food which will very easily get inside the receiver it seems that dust will easily enter it as well. The on screen GUI lacks a modern feel, but the free app makes up for it in controlling the receiver.

Other Thoughts: This receiver is replacing a poineer I bought back in 2008 it's so much more advanced it's like it was made by aliens but easy to use.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Reciver

Pros: Lots of power, sounds great. Have it hooked up to 5.1 and it works crazy well. The clarity is very good. Great options for Zone a and B, or Zone a and B at the same time.

Cons: GUI could be nicer. I would also say that I wish I could have a little more direct control over the EQ, but it is what it is.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent equipment

Pros: Great sound, intuitive on screen interfaces (although I'd prefer higher graphics), Pandora and PC streaming, control via Android app (I love being able to turn on the receiver from the bedroom), great sound, speaker volume leveling via MCCAC, great sound, and green friendly. Seriously, this thing seems to use less power than my old home theater in a box.

I have the following connected and use frequently with no problem:
Home theater PC
Comcast Cable

Cons: For the price I don't see any serious cons.

Minor quibbles:
A feature I'd like to see would be if the receiver could have separate volume settings for each input.
The volume change accelerates too fast after holding down the volume button for longer than a couple seconds.

2 out of 5 eggsNice while it lasted??

Pros: Upgraded My lower resolution video to 1080p. Had very good sound and power for the price. For 6 weeks???

Cons: Everything worked perfect for 6 weeks, after that I noticed intermittently I would have flickering video. It would shut off for a couple seconds and go off, no matter which input I was using. Now 2 weeks later... it's gotten worse, now ity keeps searching for a video format then goes black for a few seconds, does that a few times then the screen goes purple. I still have audio but no video or on screen display. Movies are unwatchable.. I'm plugging back in my old Sony that I've had for 16 years(no problems) and sending this dissapointment in for service. I was worried about the quallity of this unit when I saw the made in China sticker and when you turn the knobs, the detents or clicks are spongy and cheap, My first instincts were to return the unit immediatelly and I wish I would have listened to them.

Other Thoughts: My last reciever lasted 16 years, this one not even 16 weeks. I'm sure even after it's repaired it wont last 16 months. I will repost and let you know how there warranty and customer service is, but I've read other posts and it doesn't look good for me... Good luck to you

5 out of 5 eggs Pleased so Far

Pros: - Easy to set up
- Good number of HDMI inputs
- Awesome iPad support and apps
- Lots of useful menu options
- Excellent sound once everything is configured correctly

Cons: - On-screen menus don't look great considering the modern design of the rest of the receiver
- Lacks support for Spotify and XM

Other Thoughts: I have not been able to really delve into this receiver the way I've wanted to, but once I move that will change. However, it's been nothing but solid so far. I replaced my Onkyo with this one because it had many more HDMI inputs as well as better HD support and is just packed with much newer technology (my Onkyo was 7 years old).

My only issue was that the box came damaged. I am not sure if it was shipped damaged or was mishandled by UPS, but I was concerned the unit would be broken. Fortunately, that was not the case and the unit has performed flawlessly. I only mention this to compliment NewEgg on how responsive and helpful they were once I sent them an email. Luckily I didn'tneedto return the receiver, but I have no doubt everything would have been handled quickly. It's one of the many reasons I love NewEgg.
