Pioneer's VSX-1012-K is an excellent AV receiver with built-in AirPlay and top-notch sound quality, but Denon's AVR-1912 is just a little better.

Really awesome receiver. It has Apple Airplay, an iPhone app to control inputs and volume as well as calibration tools. Tons of input settings and upscales all your video inputs to 1080p.
