. Looking through, the only difference I see on the Elite is one extra component input and a 2yr warranty.
The VSX series Elites are not really Elites. They take one of the Pioneers and add a connection and slap an Elite sticker on it to charge more money. If the extra warranty makes you feel better then go for it but don't expect to get a better receiver. The Elite line really starts at the SC series.
I just looked at the 1122 on Pioneers website and it looks like it lost preamp outputs. I would try to find an 1121 because the 1122 seems to be a step backwards.
