Pioneer SC 1223 AV Receiver

Pioneer has just released the SC 1223 receiver which is available on store shelves now. The Pioneer SC 1223 ¬†features their vaunted class D3 amplification and is 4-ohm certified. Pioneer claims that their D3 amplification is more efficient and delivers cleaner power than class A/B amplifiers. The SC 1223 has one more HDMI input than last years SC 1222, bringing it’s total number of HDMI inputs to 8. The 1223 supports AirPlay and is also HTC connect compatible for those of you who have HTC phones. If you’ve already taken the plunge and upgraded your computer to Windows 8, you’ll be happy to know that the Pioneer SC 1223 is Windows 8 certified. The SC 1223 supports a multitude of streaming radio stations including Pandora and vTuner. The one thing that’s surprisingly omitted from the 1223 is built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. Both of which are available on less expensive receivers like the Onkyo 626, Sony STR-DN1040 and the Sony STR-DN840.
