Ultimate Sound Control
Dolby Surround Sound

The SC-1222 supports formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc soundtracks unsurpassed audio quality. Pioneer also includes all of the Dolby and DTS surround formats best suited for the wide variety of entertainment sources, including the newest Dolby Pro Logic IIz height channel.

Multi-Zone HDMI Output

The SC-1222 takes the multi-room media experience to a whole new level with multi-zone audio and video output, as well as access to the On-Screen Display from another Zone.

Class D3 Amplification

The SC-1222's Class D3 9-channel amplifier is one of the most powerful amplifiers of any multi-channel A/V receiver Pioneer has ever produced. Keeping the new audio formats of the Blu-ray Disc format in mind, Class D3 takes high-resolution multi-channel audio to a whole new level of immersive performance.

Rated at 110 watts x 7 channels, the SC-1222 delivers plenty of power, but it's not the whole story. Where the SC-1222 really shows its unprecedented power output capability is when driving multi-channels simultaneously without losing significant per-channel output. Class A/B amplifiers simply cannot match the efficiency of Class D3 as their power output per channel diminishes rapidly when more channels are added to the work-load. This kind of unprecedented power capability allows you to appreciate the full dynamics from any media source in a way never before possible. The ability to drive more channels, simultaneously, means you can fully reproduce all of the dynamics and impact of high definition multi-channel Dolby and DTS soundtracks with up to 7.2 channels of the highest quality power output available today.

My Klipsch WF-35 speakers started sounding different (in a really good way) when compared to my old Onkyo receiver.

The receiver and player interact like clock work and both are tied into my remote control iPad app.

I purchased this receiver last week (from another website - not from Amazon) and spent a good day or two performing the initial setup and hooking up various components and tweaking the setup to make the speakers sound to my liking. Once you get a hang of the setups, it's good-but it can be overwhelming for someone who is new to this.
So far, I've tried to use many of the features offered by this receiver and put it to test and it has exceeded expectations in all categories.

Initial Setup: Using the Auto MCACC was good, but the sub-woofer was not auto configured. I had to set it up manually, which was not a big deal. Though I had to figure out the menu's and where this setup is performed and all that. Even after the initial setup was performed, I had tweaked some settings on the other channels to make them sound better IMO. The UI seems old - if Pioneer can provide an software update to better the UI - it'll be perfect. Make the UI look good. :)

AUDIO: Power delivery is perfect. My Klipsch WF-35 speakers started sounding different (in a really good way) when compared to my old Onkyo receiver. I mean the sound difference was immediate, apparent and pleasingly great. I just can't stop cranking up the volume and hearing my music. My speakers are sounding so different that I feel that I've purchased a new set of speakers. Even after cranking the volume for a long period of time - say 4-5 hours, the receiver is way cool (temperature wise) - Class D amplifiers!!!

VIDEO: Netflix and Blu-ray movies played excellent. Played some videos from my iphone & youtube from my phone and the up-scaling was good. Haven't yet tried playing older video formats thru it yet to see how it fairs.

PANDORA: Works nice!!!

Well... I can't find any review about it... so I decided to write the first.
I have de Pioneer SC1222 for almost 2 months...

I work with audio and video since 1984, so i had the oportunity to try and listen to many audio equipment and have enough experience, take your time to play with the diversity of options in this receiver and you'll be NOT dissapointed.


1- Tecnologically it's really impressive, it streams flawlessly evry type of media from any PC of my network, but if you have "A LOT" of songs or interpretes, it could be a little hard to make a quick search.
Pandora works perfect but you'll prefer to create stations at you PC.
I can command most of the functions of the Pioneer SC1222 from my android phone with the icontrol APP, and can stream songs from my PC to the SC1222 right from my phone screen with the media house app. I have to admit that it's APPLE oriented ;-(
This amplifier works surprisingly cold for the power handled...!!!
From 1 to 10: 9.5

2-Audio...I'm ussing a couple of Polk RTiA7 (bi-amped) in the front, Wharfedales diamonds for center and rear and a JBL sub. I doesn't like very much the auto calibration system, it lack of bass an maybe some life in my opinion.
The option for audio EQ, Delay, Speaker system, Distance, etc, etc, etc (many etc)... are really exquisit and detailed but not very easy to modify while you are listening or viewing something.
It have a lot of DOLBY SURROND options (old and new)..!
The power is good enough to rock my RTia7 which are power demmanding.

Before this receiver, I owned the VSX-1121. Audibly, they are very similar and I honestly don't think I could identify one over the other. This one does seem to be a bit louder at lower volumes. Connectivety and functionality appear to be almost completely the same. They are even visually difficult to distinguish. The one big difference is efficiency and heat. After watching the Avengers Blu-ray at a fairly loud -10 db volume level, the top of the SC-1222 was much cooler than the VSX-1121. The only identifiable heat on the top of the unit was from the enormous transformer on the left front side. No heat is detectable elsewhere on the unit. The transformer does appear to be much larger than the VSX-1121 transformer and the unit does weigh a little more. The GUI is still not overlay capable, meaning you have to completely leave what you are watching in order to access the main menu. That menu is also still quite ugly and old looking. An $1,100 MSRP receiver should do a little better these days, in my opinion. Advanced MCACC still views both my subs as a single sub, meaning the second sub connection is basically an internal y-adapter.

Overall, I really am enjoying the sounds quality and the unit in general. The remote, GUI, and a few other things are just old and disfunctional. I picked it up for $599 and feel it was a good purchase at that price. Four stars for a good product, with lots of features, that could use a little more polish.

Look up purple or green screen. Several earlier models and this one included have problems accessing certain inputs or even the menu function of the receiver without getting a purple or green screen. Pioneer also has slow warranty claim processes that will put you out for over a month in many cases. Go with a different brand because this problem exists with many other pioneer models as well. I can't find much help on fixing the 1222-k, but the early models have the same problem with no solution.
