    Just recently started looking into upgrading my Polk RTi4/CSi3 7.1 configuration to something a bit better. You guys hooked me up when I was looking for a sub so I figured you could do it again. I think my max budget per speaker would be somewhere around $300 but would really like to come in...

     Ok so I set up hdmi through but... if I shut off the receiver and then turn it back on, the sound disappears. Then if I shut it off again it reappears only while off. It never returns while on unless I start all over again setting it up. I'm using hdmi through to tv because the tv is optical...

    What if Pioneer's flagship products used the same high-end internal components from years past, yet were sold under the standard Pioneer brand, instead of the LX series and Elite series? I'm thinking that by us not paying extra just for the LX and Elite names, it might make getting a higher-end...

    Pioneer 1120-k Orb Audio Mod 2x Orb Audio Super 8 sub I've become increasingly frustrated with my theater setup. So much so that I want to start over. What has me the most frustrated is the near constant volume adjustment when watching movies. Up for dialog, down for action scenes. It seems...

     My goal is to play madden on my 360 whilst also listening to music. Currently, my Pioneer 1120 works well with Sat/PS3/Xbox/PC inputs and I'm driving them through Zone 1 with Polk speakers (the only relevant pair being monitor 70 towers.) I don't wish to change the arrangement but I'm curious...

    Hi guys, My query is specific to Pioneer VSX-1123-K AV Receiver but it can be applied to probably other AV receivers in general. I'm really keen on ordering the VSX-1123-K from Amazon (US) but I noticed that the power rating on that device is published on Pioneer US catalog as 120V. The...

    Let me say upfront I have no real complaints about the receiver, it was my first Pioneer purchase and I'm happy with its performance. I like the solid construction, banana plugs for all speakers etc. I honestly didn't see much difference with the much vaunted Qdeo video chip, and the remote is...

    I can't figure out what went wrong. I purchased one new center channel and new front L and R speakers. I first connected the L and R and ran the system to see how it sounded in stereo mode. I liked the improvement and the sub was working at the time. Keep in mind nothing on the receiver had...

    I would like to have my 1120 send the selected source audio out both to the speakers connected and to either the HDMI output or the Digital (toslink) output at the same time. I cannot seem to find anything in the manual or in the threads on this to determine if it is even possible to do and if...

    I have the 1120-k and am trying to set up zone 2 with some outdoor speakers. I figured out the audio set-up, speaker selection (zone 2) and have the speakers connected. Now when I hit the zone button on the face it says zone 2 is on and when I try to change the input with the input knob nothing...

    I now have front heights setup on my theater room and want to test them out. When I hook up all 9.1 speakers (I have surround back installed as well) and manually adjust the sound, it plays sound from all the speakers. However, I know the system only has 7 amps, so it is using the rear surround...

    We recently "upgraded" our TV, and now have an annoying problem. Any help would be appreciated... I've had the Pioneer receiver a year and a half now, and had it feeding Panasonic 42" plasma (PZ85U). Sources included a FIOS DVR, Sony Blue Ray, X-box, and a home built HTPC. The Pioneer is...
