    AirPlay Support
    The VSX-1123-K features the latest Made for iPhone® and iPad® certification, which includes the iPhone® 5 and the iPad Mini.

    ECO Mode
    The new, energy-saving ECO Mode found on all 2013 Pioneer AV receivers goes far beyond the conventional wisdom about "green" electronics, with a standby power consumption of only 0.1 watt when enabled. Our ECO Mode offers all of the convenience features of today's modern AV receivers, including Network Standby and HDMI CEC support, while reducing power consumption in both on and standby modes.

When turned on, On-Screen Display will overlay your receiver's basic information such as volume, input, and surround mode as you make adjustments using the remote.
