It's a worthwhile upgrade over the Onkyo tx-nr3008 receiver (which I had for two years before getting the 1522k).

Thanks

Found the cuprit, had to set Hdmi audio output to bitstream in the bdp62 player. All is well now.

I'm having issues with music stream. The avr shows in my network. Sometimes it picks up my pc sometimes it doesn't. Internet radio and Pandora work fine and I can send from the pc to the avr using WMA .. Haven't been able to connect it to XBMC yet, still tinkering with that. Anybody else experiencing this?

I believe you need Apple TV to get Airplay Video.

Just curious, did anyone else notice that Pioneer seems to have raised the MSRPs on the Elite units by $50 sometime in the past few days? Guess all of this talk here and on SlickDeals about the SC-65 and the SC-1522K being the same unit except for the cosmetics scared them. (I'm sure this also applies to the SC-61 and the SC-1222K.)

I noticed that, too, and thought that Pioneer may be getting ready to discontinue the 1522 (which might help to explain the Costco deal) and keep the Elite version. I saw this week that Pioneer has introduced two new lower-priced Elite receivers and the price increase may be to give the new models some differentiation in the pricing lineup.

Just a guess.

I won't mention any names, but someone in another forum has me quite intriqued about transforming my sc-1522 in to an Elite sc-65. Would anyone know how difficult it would be to swap out the front panel, drop down panels and display on this?

What would be the benefit in doing this?

Why, firstly? Secondly, where would you get the parts?

The front panel for the SC65 is a part number 950DQE4244 . Your cost is $78.38. The outer panel for the door is a part number 950DDQ4904 . Your cost is $18.50. The door is a part number 950DPU4232 . Your cost is $12.00. We would need to order these parts from Pioneer. We can have them in stock days after you place your order.

You can order online at http://www.pacparts.com or call our sales staff at 800-421-5080, Mon - Fri, 7:00am to 4:30pm Pacific Time. There is a $10.00 minimum for parts if you place your order by phone.

Not worth the cost, time and effort involved. Plus, you'll void your warranty.

Got mine today again from Costco. It's my fifth (no - really). The third one bit the dust yesterday. (First one was my fault- might have been fine, 2nd one was DOA- no sound- calibration caused awful noises) So I figured third time is a charm...After my android app started lagging, then stopped responding altogether I tried everything I could think of from restarting then re-installing the app to resetting my router and the AVR, I could no longer get the android app to connect with my device. It would see the device, and I even entered in the IP manually too- it kept throwing errors- and would not connect. So I took it back, got another, took it home and went to set it up, and after setting the unit to 7.1 with Zone 2, I quickly realized Zone two had no sound. I also realized the telltale "click" of the relay's switching to turn Zone two on and off was also missing. The unit showed Zone2 on, but it was not... so it quickly went back. Number Five is alive and well post setup, no problems at all.
What I did that is interesting though was to note the Mfg date of all five- the first 3 were Oct 12, #4 was November 12, and #5 was April 12. Interesting thing about #5 from the April lot, is that it has the factory stickers on the front. I havn't seen these on the previous 4. Starting to wonder if these were Refurbs, or Returns... I've always noticed Refurbs lack the "bragging stickers" most times...

The stickers are traditionally placed on the first (several) runs as they will go on display at the various dealers. After x units they quit putting them on.

Picked this up at the costco in Laguna Niguel. Does anyone know if u can disable the volume level from being displayed on my plasma? It's really distracting. I can see the volume on the display of the receiver just fine.

I read through the manual but couldn't find it anywhere.

Thanks so much.

Yes, you can disable the volume display. See HOME MENU > System Setup > Other Setup > 7. On Screen Display Setup.

Thank you for contacting Pioneer Electronics (USA) Inc.
You are correct, AirPlay on a product other than Apple will only be audio.
Apple has not released the ability to stream video.


Sincerely,

I guess I gotta buy another AppleTV for the basement

Same goes for DLNA streaming and HTC connect. All are audio only. After all, this is an audio receiver.

Just bought this, will update if I can get it working. Can't believe Pioneer wants $150 for their wifi adaptor.

It should work. See post#9 for all possible options.
post #354 of 1713
I know this is not what interests most owners but, here goes. My better half likes to listen to internet sources as background music. So,...she keeps on asking what the owner's think of the audio quality of streaming music through this receiver before she gives me the nod to go snag one of these before they're gone. How do you owners rate the audio quality in general and, more specifically, through streaming sources? I don't' have to worry about the speakers because the 1522 will be driving a fairly nice B&W 5.1 system. Based on my penchant for quality speakers, we don't need a 7 or 9 set-up because either one would cause another B-line to the poor house.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. Onkyo's LAN adapter is $28 and is in the form of a flash drive. Is there something I'm missing here? I was on the brink of getting the 1522 over the Onkyo 818 but, now the cost of the adapter closes the gap in prices between the two.

My wife listens to pandora all the time and she loves it because she can use the iContolAV2012 app to control everything. She can also use airplay from the iTunes on the PC or her iPad, or iPhone.

I use wire so the wireless adapter isn't necessary. The 818 is over $800 dollars on sale. The 1522 is $600 at Costco.

Just got back from a drive to King of Prussia PA from Harrisburg to pick up the SC-1522 from Costco. It is a heck of a deal. I hope I have none of the 5x issues noted above, as it will make the drive to KoP very old very quickly. Looking forward to streamlining my installation (detangling the mess of video runs to the TV as my older Denon 3803 did not handle HDMI. I am very excited about the new unit! BTW, I believe there are 12 left at KOP Costco if anyone is interested.

Jeff.

Why pay for adapters, especially a proprietary one that can't be used elsewhere? and let that be a concern instead of the features?

I installed a MoCA adapter and 4-port Ethernet switch so that ALL my HT equipment can connect through that. I will not, and no need to, pay any individual wireless adapters. That's just a waste for something that is unreliable and slow (wifi networking);

I have the buzzing noise. Sounds like it's coming from the transformer. It's just loud enough to be maddening.

There was a post earlier where Sam S said this was caused by power problems. I have a Denon 2809 receiver that has worked perfectly with neither internal hum nor hum sent to the speakers, and when I plug the Pioneer 1522 in its place, I get the buzzing noise. It may be that I actually have a power problem and the Denon just has a better built power supply that rejects this noise better, or it may be that the Pioneer is a bad unit. Given other discussions on this forum, it sounds to me like Pioneer's quality control isn't all that great, and so both are possible.
