I picked one up - my wife will set me up with a shrink when she finds out.
Great unit; biggest plus is the effcient Amp (class D) draws only 330W -compare that to similiar models-
Sampling rate: 32bit/192kHz DAC (nice thing)

downside - just for FYI but not a deal breaker for me:
No 4K upscaling (upscales to 1080p though). who has a 4K display anyway?
Not WiFi - must buy seperate wireless dongle AS-WL300 ($120) if you want to utilize that feature.
+1 on the class D
besides power consumption, these run at about half the temp of similarly rated class A/B from pioneer or other manufacturers.

i wasn't planning on getting this....but the more i think about it....i can't help myself!!

I'm in the same boat. I am so tempted. I have a Yamaha RX-A1000 and an RX-V867 which are both serving me very well. But it would be nice to have the additional features of this unit. If I got this, I'd hang on to the 1000 for my basement and sell the 867. That should fetch $300 or $350 or so, no?

Decisions, decisions...

I have no Home Theater gear at the moment and not very knowledgeable on the subject. I am in the market for a good setup which I won't have to upgrade anytime soon and will produce great sound. My read of the thread is that this is a great upper tier receiver and a good price. Is that accurate?

Also, what would be good speakers to pair with this? I am looking to spend about $500 on speakers.

This would be THE receiver to buy, yes!

You're going to get ALL kinds of opinions on speakers, but in my humble opinion, even a 5.1 setup that's well-served by this amp will be very difficult to find for $500. I went used and super-budget, and still spent right at $1k on speakers (Polk Monitor M70's in front, CS2 Center, Emotiva ERD-1 surrounds all on ultra discount pricing, and a used Outlaw LFM-1 Plus Sub).

Just curious: Was anyone here brazen enough to try to price match this at Best Buy? I'm thinking about trying to do this for kicks.

Yes, several here and in other forums have mentioned this with mixed results... I'd say the OP should remove "YMMV" and apply it only to BB matching this price.

My local Costco has not received any and doesn't know if they will, so it is YMMV.

I was able to get a BB PM over the phone. The Costco near me had them in stock which was the key. And yes, Best Buy does PM Costco, even at a loss. Both are in the fine print of Best Buy's PM policy.

Got shot down at the Best Buy near me. Even though I had photos from the Costco just a mile or two away. They said they couldn't sell it as it is $500 under their cost.

They had an open box one for $982.xx. LMAO.

Also, I've attached some photos in case they will help anybody.

The last one is Best Buy's "inventory" system. It shows that they typically sell this for $1599.99. The lady did a search and eventually walked away with the screen still up, so I snapped a photo.
I miss the old day where I worked we would just go buy out the competitor's inventory in a case like this.

Hey OP,
Props to you. I still think this should be front page material, regardless of what others say.worship

Thanks y'all... Good to know.

One more question, only the newer 2013 models claim to work with iPhone 5 (lightning adapter)... Since my VSX-21 doesn't have Airplay (which may largely make this question irrelevant if I can get non-iTunes apps like Spotify to work via Airplay), I'm curious how this SC-1522-K handles the iPhone 5.

My VSX-21 works, but it's real sketchy and basically won't sync with the phone unless I'm actually playing a song when I plug in the phone... Not a huge deal, just have to remember this and explain it to friends wanting to plug in their iPhones.

Thanks!

Mine works fine with the 5, I just plug in the USB into the usb slot and it charges and syncs. I tried my music, youtube, and pandora so far all works great from my iphone and you can set it to control the music through your iphone or receiver control.

I just grab the #14 out of #16 on my local Costco on SoCal. I went first to BB magnolia section to see what they have available to compare and for the money nothing comes close to this unit, Thanks OP
