There’s A Reason They Are Called Pioneer Let me preface this review by saying I do not consider myself to be an audiophile. I am typically content with “good sound.” I do own a couple of upscale products (Bose, etc.) but do not seek those out. My existing home theater receiver is a Panasonic, which is good, but certainly not considered upscale. I recently needed to update/upgrade as my Panny equipment was becoming dated.So why Pioneer’s SC-1223-K? There are certainly many other choices available, and some high quality 7.2 channel alternatives at half the price of this product. For example, I tried Sony’s STR-DN840, which costs a lot less than the SC-1223-K. The Sony has great sound and lots of features, and is probably more than enough receiver for most people.

You have options to run the AV Navigator program through PC, Mac, or iPad with a free app. I connected the receiver to my home network and was able to get things set up right through my iPad. It gave a wiring navigation, step by step instructions for how to set up speakers and connect components to the correct inputs. It also took me through the calibration process with the included mic for their proprietary MCACC room calibration. You plug in the included mic, and t automatically analyzes…
