Pioneer Black AV Receiver - VSX1120K

7.1-Channel 3-D Ready A/V Receiver Featuring Works with iPhone® Certification with Dedicated iPhone Control Button, Bluetooth® Capability and Marvell® Video Processing

There's only one way to get closer to an artist's true intent--and that's to get as close as possible to exactly what the artist created. With this in mind, Pioneer ushers in an entirely new era of high definition stereophonic performance. From enjoying the very best 1080p high definition picture available to hearing every last nuance with award-winning audio capabilities, Pioneer's range of receivers offers nothing less than a miraculous performance at every level. And with an ever-increasing list of connectivity and integration options as well, these receivers will also guarantee to get you closer to the original experience than ever before.

The Pioneer VSX-1120-K delivers the ultimate level of control and sophistication for your home theater. With connectivity options for all your latest high-definition home theater components and digital 1080p upscaling from any source, the VSX-1120-K takes performance a step further with multi-zone and RS-232 support for home automation systems. And the VSX-1120-K brings extensive connectivity for your digital media via Ethernet and a front USB input, and compatibility with Bluetooth sources (using the optional AS-BT100 adapter, sold separately). Plus, it's "Works with iPhone"-certified, so you can incorporate your favorite Apple products into your home theater easily. iControlAVR, a free iPhone app (downloaded separately) and PC control turns your iPhone, iPod Touch, or PC into the ultimate control center. Home theater systems don't get more powerful or versatile than the Pioneer VSX-1120-K.

Features:

"Works with iPhone" Certification Provides iPhone Users the Ultimate Plug-and-Play Integration
Get a truly plug-and-play iPhone experience with your home theater. Thanks to the VSX-1120-K's "Works with iPhone" certification, you can enjoy music with iTunes® album art, movies, downloaded TV shows from iTunes, photos, web content such as YouTube® and more. An included USB/composite video cable makes connecting your iPhone to share your favorite media easy--and your iPhone charges automatically when connected. Unlike other receiver lines, there's no need to buy a separate dock to enjoy your iPhone with your home theater. This included cable also works with most generations of iPod Classic, nano, and iPod Touch.

Share your videos, and enjoy music with full album information and album art on your TV. Your iPhone's wireless and network features remain fully functional and music and movies will mute when you receive an incoming call. And you've got lots of control options--use the iPhone directly, or push a single button on the VSX-1120-K's front panel to switch control to the included preset remote and an intuitive, full-color GUI.

Plus, your iPhone's music will always sound its best thanks to Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Sound Retriever technology, which restores lost data in compressed music files. So even in a big room, you'll get much closer to the artist's original intent from you iPhone, iPod or other MP3 player. And Auto Level Control means a smooth, consistent listening experience with no jarring volume changes between your favorite songs and albums.

Pioneer's Free iPhone App Turns Your iPhone or iPod Touch into a Powerful Control Center
Pioneer's iControlAV (downloaded separately via Apple's App Store) gives you total control over your home theater sound. With controls for master and per-zone volume, room calibration, and more, you've got a simple but powerful way to adjust your home theater sound any way you like.

The iPhone and iPod Touch's accelerometer controls are used to control balance and emphasis--no confusing sequence of remote buttons to remember, just tilt and maneuver your Apple portable device until the sound is right where you want it.

Access Your Portable Devices, Internet Radio, Satellite Radio, and More
In addition to connections for all your home theater components, a front HDMI input lets you conveniently connect high-definition devices like an HD camcorder to view your videos in all their glory in your home theater. A front USB port lets you connect your digital camera or portable media player to display a slideshow of JPEG photos on your HDTV, or play MP3, WAV, or WMA music files with full ID3 tag and album art support. And your options don't stop with your portable devices. The Pioneer VSX-1120-K is your portal for SIRIUS® satellite radio (subscription required) and thousands of free Internet radio stations -- all just a few clicks of the remote away.

On-Screen GUI, PC Control, and RS-232 Support Provide Even More Control Options
There are more ways to control your Pioneer VSX-1120-K than just your iPhone. There's a full-color on-screen GUI for use with the included preset remote, and PC control capability so you can use your Mac or PC to adjust settings when your receiver is connected to your home network via Ethernet. For full-on home theater automation, the VSX-1120-K supports RS-232 systems such as Control4® and Crestron®. So you can control your Pioneer home theater anywhere, from the whole house to the palm of your hand.

Release Your Smartphone's Music with the AS-BT100 Bluetooth Adapter (sold separately)
For wireless connectivity, add a Pioneer AS-BT100 Bluetooth adapter (sold separately) to release your music from your iPhone, Blackberry®, or Android® smartphone as well as other Bluetooth-enabled sources like laptops. And the VSX-1120-K's Advanced Sound Retriever AIR technology makes sure that even your compressed MP3s are brought back to near cd-quality sound.

The Latest HDMI Technology Gets You Ready for 3-D
All of Pioneer's latest receivers support the latest HDMI specification, meaning that you're not just getting the most out of your existing movies and music, you're preparing for the next generation of 3-D video content with the VSX-1120-K. And with 6 HDMI inputs, including 1 on the front panel, you've got more than enough connectivity options for the growing number of high-definition sources available today.

Marvell® 1080p Video Upscaling from Any Source
Marvell's cutting-edge advanced video processing lets you upscale your picture to digital 1080p from virtually any source, even digital HDMI, at a quality level unprecedented in home theaters. PureCinema's extra processing of 3D noise reduction and Y/C color separation ensures you'll get the best picture possible from anything you've got.

True-to-Life, High-Definition Audio and New Dolby Pro Logic IIz and THX Select2 Plus
Of course all the latest Pioneer receivers support high-definition audio formats like Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Audio to give your Blu-ray Disc® movies a soundtrack that's true-to-life. But Pioneer adds an extra dimension with support for Dolby Pro Logic IIz across its entire 2010 line of receivers, which adds a "height" channel for an even more immersive experience. And the Pioneer VSX-1120-K takes it even further with THX Select2 Plus certification, to ensure a true cinema-quality experience in your home.

Total Control with Custom Pioneer Technologies: Acoustic Calibration, Advanced Sound Retriever, and Auto Level Control
Pioneer's exclusive Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration system (MCACC) provides a near studio-quality, multi-channel listening experience customized specifically to your listening environment. An included microphone measures every speaker's connection, and notes its size, distance from the listening point, sound levels and timbre to calibrate and maximize performance. The VSX-1120-K has an advanced version of MCACC that will calibrate with a 9-band equalizer, auto-crossover settings, and can even send charts of its measurements to your PC via USB.

Even compressed audio such as WMA, MP3 and AAC is enhanced with another Pioneer exclusive, Advanced Sound Retriever, by filling in areas where minute details were left out during the compression process. This technology also enhances the audio quality of SIRIUS Satellite Radio and can realize an upper limit frequency of 20kHz with compressed audio playback for surprising audio richness and clarity even from "lossy" digital audio sources. The VSX-1120-K's advanced ASR can restore even multi-channel audio.

Additionally, the Auto Level Control feature can equalize volume level differences between tracks playing from an iPhone or iPod or during television programming so the volume can be enjoyed at a consistent level--no more jarring "blare" when switching audio sources.

All of these technologies come together in the VSX-1120-K to deliver the ultimate level of control and sophistication for the discerning home entertainment enthusiast.

      Comments about Pioneer Black AV Receiver:

      I moved into the AV receiver after I found that my 15 year old technics would not support some of the newer sound formats. The technics was a powershouse! The pioneer is a much better sounding tool for surround and I am enjoying the plIIz. I used the auto set up but do need to tweak it as stereo sound is lacking volume and depth. The only negative I have with this and probably all av units is that #1, I have to have the receiver on to view cable and wii and #2 I can not have the TV speakers on at the same time as the receiver (so I can just mute on or the other). I have kids who just want to play the wii or watch cartoons and I would prefer they didn't push buttons. I still want to take advantage of the upconversion so I do not wish to run the wii and cable box direct to the tv. Kuro link has been a pain in the [*] too, but I think I just need to slow down and restart that set up.

        Comments about Pioneer Black AV Receiver:

        Had a problem with Setup - not able to see GUI or any video from the Pioneer on the TV for about 45 minutes. Seemed to be copyright protection issues that accompany the HDMI technology that can cause problems for the rest of us. Many Internet posts about this problem. Resetting (not just turing it on/off but reading manual and reseting) my TV allowed successful communication between it and the 1120K.

        Nice sound for movies, especially after using the built in surround sound calibration microphone. Very easy.

        Excellent video quality. DVD's are noticeably improved after the 1120K up converts the 720p to 1080p.

        I like that this can be controlled through a web browser on your home network. Easily accessible from my Mac. However, it doesn't allow for full control, but basic control of the main zone's input, audio mode, and volume (also 2nd zone's). Would have preferred access to equalizer and the entire setup menu.

        I returned this for a Denon 3311CI, which has a more extensive web browser, but costs about 50% more.
