Pioneer SC-1222K is a winner

Posted by jwilson56 , 09 March 2013 · 7737 views

Well the Pioneer SC-1222K came early so I decided to swap it out. My initial thoughts
 
Pros:
 
1)  The receiver runs cool to the touch even after a few hours of cranked up music and movies
 
2)  The Class D3 amplifiers are a clear winner for sound quality. My Polk Monitor 70's have never sounded so good. I was always less than impressed with the Onkyo for music. It will be a pleasure to sit and listen to music in my main room again. Class D3 amplification features a direct signal path, with no EMI filters, feedback loops, or current limiters. (and this all before I even run the Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system)
 
3) Can't wait to run the Advanced Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) as I have read that it is superior to the Audyssey
 
4)  USB update was super easy to do
 
5) Pandora and iPod support (probably will not use either one as it ties into Now Playing that gives me touchscreen control and Pandora via the Grace Digital Tuner)
 
6) Lots of power with a total capacity of 600 watts all channels driven (120 W/ch 1kHz, THD .08% @ 8 ohm)
 
7) The price... at $529 it is a steal at Newegg. Best Buy wants over $800 and Amazon over $1000
 
Cons:
 
1) Buttons on the remote are small and not back lit (but I use the Harmony One so no big deal for me)
 
2) No on screen display for volume and surround mode changes when being changed. This was a nice touch on the Onkyo but one I can live without.
 
 
 
 
 
 




I bought a SC-1222K about 2 months ago from newegg. Great deal, great reciever. I'm not crazy about the remote, but I love the iPhone/iPad app and use that instead.  Very nice rs232 control - it was pretty easy to create/program a Arduino-type box to turn it into a "9th NuVo zone" and multi-function NuVo source. (Nice to have Pandora, Sirius, internet radio, etc available in all the zones with IP control and meta-data [except song length :( ] - I just need to automate the 6-line pioneer menus with the nuvonet adapter)
