    Default Picked up a SC-1222k

    So sometimes I do stupid things, like gamble. Except I don't gamble in a casino or race track, I do something dumb like buy a "as-is, for parts" receiver off eBay. There was an SC-1222-K that was pretty much brand new for $155 + 40 shipping, but it had a flashing MCACC with unknown history. I figured, buy it and try the 3 different resets that Pioneer has in the manual. A week later (today) it shows up at my door so I wait until everyone goes to sleep (I know, I know) and I try it out.

    The Power + < arrow did not work, as did the Power + Standard/Surround button. Uh oh.... those are the ones I know. I'm about to crap myself for wasting $200 in this gamble. Wife is going to shank me in my sleep.

    Then I try down arrow + Zone 2..... nothing for 5 seconds... then at 6 seconds it came to life! I had it factory reset and swapped it out with the SC-35. Whew.....

    HDMI switching works, all 5 of the channels I had hooked up worked. Sub out worked. Put on a movie and cranked it up. Sounds good without calibration on the Focals.

    Anyways, I got really lucky on this gamble, but hey I got basically a SC-61 without amber lights for $200 give or take. If I get a year out of it, it will be worth the money. Now I have another head unit for a 5 channel amp. Before today I had more 5 channel amps than receivers/processors. Now the real question... where should I put it?

    I had the same receiver. Newegg usually sells them for $499.99 new. I returned it because Costco had the SC-1522-k, which is the same as SC-65, for $599.99. I've been very happy with this receiver. It runs super cool compared to my Onkyo, which can fry eggs if I wanted to.

    I recommend the iContolAV2012 app for it. It's awesome.

    I can't beat it for $200 shipped. Likely it will go upstairs to the unused living room.
