Yeah, I read the sc-1227K was the futureshop exclusive of the SC-61.

I'm not positive on this, but I thought the 1222K was the same MINUS a 12v trigger(which isn't a big deal to me)? I don't know if this is true for sure though. My googling provided many conflicting answeres.

But like I said, the 1222K you mentioned isn't available on the newegg.ca site. Only the newegg.com site. After the cost of taxes, duties, shipping and handling...I might as well buy the 1227K from futureshop for 899. That way it's got warranty too.

Link to Pioneer Elite's warrant concerning Authorized dealers.

First they say that on-line dealers are not authorized to sell the Elite brand, then they give a list of those businesses that are authorized dealers. One of these is Amazon.com which is an authorized dealer.

It would be my assumption that as long as the Pioneer Elite is purchased from one of these authorized dealers that the warranty would be effective. I could be wrong. I bought an SC-65 recently through Amazon. It probably would be worth an e-mail or call to Pioneer to know for sure.

Amazon is an authorized internet dealer, and you do get a warranty if you buy from them except for Elite branded products.

By the way, though Amazon does not have a good price for the 1222, it does price the 1522 at $1k.

You should have bought one when you were in Edmonton, could have saved on the PST, another road trip planned?

Yeah, this would be a great idea.

Actually yes smile When I officially have the money in my account, I plan to take the wife and kids to the Calgary Zoo. Go on a nice little holiday through edmonton(west ed mall), then Calgary, then through canmore/banff on our way home. Thanks for reminding me about the pst. I'll most likely end up doing this smile

I'm thinking July or August if I can get a few days off from the new job(shouldn't be a problem though)

One thing I'll never do again is buy an expensive receiver in a far away city. It may come with a great warranty, but unless it's from a national chain or includes shipping you're going on a few extended road trips.

Warranty gets done through authorized service centers, shouldn't matter where you buy it as long as it is in Canada, keep the box and it could be shipped which is not quite as expensive as a road trip to drop it off.
