This review is from: Pioneer SC-1222-K 7.2-Channel Network Ready AV Receiver
Pros: Tons of options, Good sound quality, cheap price.
Cons: Complex. That's not really a con, but If you aren't one for reading instructions (downloaded from Pioneer) then pass on this unit. It's not for the plug and play minded individual. Spend some time online reading the various forum posts too.
Other Thoughts: This receiver has performed flawlessly. I have it connected to an LG 60LM7200 3D TV, Denon Blu-Ray, Denon DVD changer, PS3, DirecTV box, and Polk Monitor 70, 40, 30, and CS2 speakers. The unit has plenty of power to drive the monitor 70s. The firmware update for Pandora needs to be downloaded onto a fat 32 formatted jump drive and then installed from that through the USB port. It worked the first time. MCACC does a great job too. This receiver replaced a Kenwood VR-6070 THX 6.1 unit, and it is quite a step up. I have this wired directly to my router, and don't have any issues with connectivity. Internet radio, Pandora and streaming from my laptop through my home network all work flawlessly. The I phone app is pretty cool too.READ FULL REVIEW
