Pioneer’s SC-1223-K AV receiver combines the latest in audio amplification, digital video formats, and smartphone/tablet compatibility. Surprisingly simple to set up and navigate, you'll be hosting movie nights and super bowl parties without breaking a sweat.
Class D3 Audio Amplification
First and foremost, the SC-1223-K is built with the power and finesse of Pioneer's Class D3 amplification. This technology is a perfect match for current digital audio formats. Unlike traditional Class-AB amplifiers, it won't lose power when running all 7 channels, even at 4 ohms per channel. This is due to its impressive 90% efficiency rating. Less heat means less power wasted.
Video Connections for Every Device
Imagine a picture with four times the resolution of today's high definition: it's called 4K Ultra HD. The VSX-1223-K is fully compatible, supporting pass-through and 4K Ultra HD video upscaling, and multi-zone distribution. All video sources can be converted to HDMI® through Pioneer's Advanced Video Adjust (powered by Marvell Qdeo® video processing) and enhancing video for the industry's best upscaling solution. The VSX-1223-K features eight HDMI inputs and two zone-selectable HDMI outputs. One HDMI input is located on the front panel, and is MHL-capable for mobile devices.
Modern Technology Integration
The VSX-1223-K is Made for iPhone® and Made for iPad® certified, allowing not only audio playback but charging of your iOS device, including the new iPad mini. Add support for Apple's AirPlay® wireless music streaming, and the VSX-1223-K is by far one of the most Apple® friendly AV receivers available. This receiver also offers HTCTM Connect, the only unified solution for streaming music from your AndroidTM smartphone. Use DLNA 1.5 to stream music from a PC or audio hard drive through your home network. Pandora and vTuner are built right into the device. Pick up the optional Pioneer AS-BT200 to enable wireless Bluetooth connectivity as well.
An industry-first, Pioneer's AVNavigator is an interactive owner’s manual that takes all the guesswork out of setting up your receiver. Use your networked PC, MAC or iPad to communicate directly with the SC-1223-K, walking you through speaker set-up, Advanced MCACC room calibration, sound optimization, firmware updates and more.
