Okay guys, it's time for me to get my system updated so here's the deal.
I'm looking for a new AV receiver, parameters are, under $1,500.00, full HDMI switching, good up-conversion, and well made.
I am considering these:
Have not seen a Pioneer and I an reluctant to buy a Yamaha locally, the only dealer is BestBuy, nuff said.
So what are you opinions for these selections? Is there something else I should consider.
I will be working into ADS1530's for the mains, a Polk Audio CSi-A6 Center Speaker, and Polk TSi100 rear surrounds.
Suggestions, comments ??
I have a Pioneer Elite SC-05 and it is incredible. It has 7 discrete bang and olufsen ice amps. I have it hooked up to Definitive Technology speakers (5.1 setup…..Front L/R: BP7004, Center C/L/R 2500, Rear BP2X). You can read a review of it here http://ultimateavmag...05_av_receiver/. You can find it for under $1800, but it will be difficult as authorized Pioneer Elite dealers do NOT discount Elite equipment. I was lucky and got it for $1400 from a local authorized reseller because they were having the Pioneer techs there that day to show off all Pioneer equipment.
