I have the SC 1227-k, which is last year's version of the 1328, with the addition of 4K passthrough. Personally I would go with the 1328 because of the D amps. They don't generate a lot of heat, put out a lot of power and can be used with 4 ohm speakers, if you have those. I've had the Pioneer 1014 and 9120, both of which were very good, but I prefer the 1227 hands down. Hope this helps.
