I can get the SC-61 for $600 but it's BB Magnolia's demo unit that's been on the shelf for almost a year. Still full warrantee.

What benefits do I get from the SC-61 vs. the same (actually a touch lower) priced SC-1222?

Go to Pioneer's web site, pull up both receivers in a comparison window and ...tada!

That would be a great idea except those models aren't on there and even if they were they don't have a comparison and both are in different categories (Elite V. Non-Elite).

Sorry, what does that mean?

Sounds like there's no real reason to get the sc-61, the 1222 is $50 cheaper than the open box which will have less warrantee and has been used. Right?

Do you know for sure about the warranty? I'd think you'd still get the full 2 years.

Couldn't hurt to ask about the warranty, if the store says yes to 2 years on the Elite piece...then get it in writing....

Elite has 2 year warranty, regular Pioneer receivers like the SC-1222 come with one year warranty. an open box model should still carry the full mfrs warranty.

so the advantage of your buying the open box Elite unit is the extra year warranty.

And if the receiver has been sitting there for a year you should be able to negotiate a lower price. You've got nothing to lose by asking.

Oh they do my friend they publish a downloadable Product Sheet Brochure in PDF format, grouped in the downloadable manual area. You might have to go to the support pages to get there under some of the older models, as they're not grouped under the current Pioneer receiver offerings. Anyway the information is there and you can do a comparison just like I said. You just have to be willing to think a little.

Best Regards,

10 second Google search found both receivers...

SC-1222 link on Pioneer website
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/SC-1222-K

Product Sheet
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/ephox/StaticFiles/PUSA/Files/Home/SC-1222-K%20New%20Single%20Sheet.pdf

Elite SC-61
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Elite+Receivers/SC-61

Product Sheet
http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/ephox/StaticFiles/PUSA/Files/Home/SC-61%20New%20Single%20Sheet.pdf

Pretty easy to open up a couple of browser windows and compare the two receivers. Or do it the old school way and print out the product sheets.

Dude. It takes less time to skip a post that you don't want to help with than to moan and groan about the question asked. I'm new to all this'm new to this, don't know what the specs mean and figured there are some that have the knowledge and want to help. Apparently that's not you, so skip my post. Sorry to take your time. But I did do my research then came here to fill in the gaps.

Let me say this, you are one lazy ungrateful Gen X Y Z or whatever generation you are. You guys suffer from an entitlement complex, you believe people should just jump at the chance to serve you. It's not that I don't want to help you, you just communicate like it's too much trouble to look something up. Dood I was saying dude before you were born.
