HDMI port problems


Lot of features. Too bad they all don't work

HDMI port failure. I would have discovered this problem within the one year warranty but had the receiver at a location that I was only at 2 weekends a month. Was having connection problems from the start with the TV, Netflix and Blu Ray. I'd jiggle...

A mostly unapreciated bargain.


People who complain about this receiver in my thoughts are not taking time for set up.type out and "READ THE MANUAL"This receiver has the most powerful amplifier ever made for home theater.The sound at very or low volumes is excellent and doesn't bog...

Lots a power. with the class D Amplifier this is mower power than any receiver i've ever owned.It has so many xtras, and without saying a large learning curve if you use all that is has to offer.I added the Andrew Jones Pioneer SP-PK52FS 5.1 Speaker...

None other than a Large learning curve but to set up your sound use the mike for the auto MCAA it does a great job

Very capable receiver at a value price


Economically able to handle low impedance loads due to digital amplifier stage ; Online setup utility for attached device parameters is easy to use. Scope of adjustments are extensive

HDCP pass thru is not always right on. Speaker connections are not ideal. Not a serious criticism as I know of no receiver that does this well

I still cant get over no manual!!! I actual think I need to print it out, that's how much reading and studying is required.

The AV Navigator software is awesome it walks you through everything. You must have your default web browser set to Internet explorer or the software will be in Japanese only. I was using google chrome and it was messing up the Pioneer Software

You will have to spend a day or more just reading and playing with the settings before you even know what you are doing. Took me hours just to do basic playback. Once you get it setup it worth the time and energy. This thing is Awesome

Its a computer without any software or written instructions


When you make something this complicated you have to have a manual. This would be one of those manuals that is actually read and would have marks from days of reading, If it came with a manual. I have to go find English software for the online features...

Very Loud!! Don't know cant get any pc functions to work with the Japanese software that came with my unit

I'm missing many features for this unit. I have no pc help because the software that came with my unit is in Japanese only. It says install in English but it installs in Japanese only. So the AI onscreen step by step setup was of absolute 0 help. I...

No English Software!!!!


Why would you not make the software download on your website.... Sham on you Pioneer....Like what use is the software unless you had a Pioneer receiver?

It's loud

It came with Japanese software only. You select English and it installs in Japanese only. The AV Navigator software disc is useless that came with my unit. It's all in Japanese??? Why it's not available from Pioneers website is not right. Another major...

Love this receiver!


I bought this receiver to serve as the centerpiece of my home's main floor, where I have a large living room and where I have my nicest speakers. I chose the SC-1222k primarily because of the Class D amplifiers. I really wanted the highest quality...

Fantastic sound! Crisp, clear and clean. Flexible zone capability (powered Zone 2, line-level signal to Zone 3). Love the "front height" speaker setup where L/R mains are augmented by L/R Height speakers. I like the customizable EQ and sound setting...

The remote is cumbersome to say the least. There are so many features that it is sometimes difficult to figure out how to control specific tasks, even what would seem are easy ones like adjusting the radio stations

stay away !!


had to pay $60 to ship back,for a bad receiver,that was due to manufacture.

sounded great at first.but now i understand why its going so cheap

sub outs did not work,were confused with left front speaker,and sub out,some how were wired together,could not get sub to configure on unit.If you are smart,spend the extra money and get a good one,I have owned yamaha for years,and never had a issue

Got a lemon :(


So, I receive the package from Newegg in exactly 3 business days (ordered it on Sunday, got it on Wednesday) I was very impressed by this. Unfortunately that's where the positivity ends. I get this thing all hooked up and I'm greeted with an error...

Looks like a solid piece of hardware. Big and heavy. Attractive lcd display

At least with my set-up, this receiver simply didn't work as it is supposed to

Pioneer SC-1222-K


Next time on a purchase like this I will just purchase locally. I went to a local retailer and demo'd the Pioneer Elite SC 61 which is basically the same receiver and was impressed

Very Good Product. Clean sound, nice design, low heat output. 5 star

UPS. The package arrived with a large hole in the retail box. The UPS driver stated that he thought the receiver was damaged during shipment, so i did not get to try it out. UPS gets an unlimited negative rating forever. I refused the shipment
