Can you say "Late Adopter"? I'm just replacing a Pioneer VSX-1020 with the SC-1222-K. Haven't even hooked up the 1222 yet, just going through the manual and trying to make sure I understand what this monster can do. I know this thread is not really "current" anymore, but it has certainly been helpful to me so far. I'll have specific questions in the next few weeks, and I'm betting they will be answered within this thread. I'll be sure to check first, and I'm trying to read through the entire thread.
General question - Any opinions on whether I would be better off to set up with the "front wide" or "front height" or use the "surround side" for the additional surround speakers? I'm not used to anything more than a 5.1 set-up.
I'll be running all Infinity speakers; Qb (4 ohm - recently recapped and otherwise refurbed) for front main, and then Infinitesimal 4's (6 ohm) for the center, front wide (or surround side) and rear surrounds. A couple BU-1 sub-woofers will be used up front to reinforce the Qb's bottom end.
This receiver is a big step up for me - lot's to learn. Hope to figure out networking, Airplay and DLNA stuff, since I have about 3 tb of music files in Apple Lossless and FLAC that I'd like to be able to run through the beast. Will also be getting a more modern TV monitor with HDMI and a Blueray player sometime. My old 1980's vintage CRT unit is still working but it just doesn't cut it anymore. Well, it hasn't been adequate for years, but I'm slow to change things that are working...
Thanks in advance. And thanks for already sharing your previously acquired knowledge with everyone.
