The new 2012 Pioneer-branded line of receivers should have consumers excited. Bringing fully functional HDMI connection (including 3D, ARC, and Standby Through) plus MCACC room correction to the entry level models is a fantastic draw. While there is a large assumption that most of your devices will have HDMI (and maybe an accurate one for many consumers), there is a lot to like. Starting at $250 and going up to $600, the line has something for everyone. AirPlay, Qdeo 1080p upcoversion, streaming, control apps, native iDevice compatibility, dual subwoofer output...the real question you have to ask is what do you want your receiver to do? Because Pioneer certainly has the model for you. Discuss "Pioneer 2012 Line of Receivers Preview" here. Read the article.
