I looked on pioneer's site for these specs:

http://www.pioneerel....etailComponent

Some main differences:
- 914 has DPL IIx
- 914 has 192/24 DAC
- 914 has 1 more optical input
- 914 has 1 more composite video input
- 914 does not have a front door to hide the front inputs
- 914 is lighter
- 914 is a little deeper

I wonder why this years model is so much lighter then last years model. Did they skip on the power supply, smaller heatsink or less parts?

BTW, My friend loves his d912k.

I have one 912K and for the money is a great reciever, but its a very light reciever, compare to my marantz, I hope it can perform as well as my 912.

I also have a 912k and was just interested in the differences. I honestly prefer the 912k's look to the 914k and the only thing that really makes the 914k better is the DPL IIx but that isn't a big deal for me. And I too wonder why the 914k is lighter 3 1/2 pounds is quite a bit. Onecall has the 914k for $300 + shipping if anyone is interested.

Do any of these receivers have an 80hz crossover?

I know the 912k only has a 40Mhz and I'm sure if the 914k had anything better than that it would have been mentioned in the specs.

My 912K has a three options, 200Hz, 150Hz and 100Hz (no 80Hz). I dont know about the 914K.

If you check Pioneer's website, the 914 has been updated with a new weight. It is now listed as, 23lbs 5oz, heavier than the outgoing model.

Can anyone answer Jason's question, if the 914 has 80mhz crossover?

Thanks.

It can't do 80Hz. Posted Image According to a thread that I read over at the AVS Forum, 100Hz is the lowest the crossover will go.

that is right 100hz is the lowest just like the 812/912. I have the 814 setup tonight and the 814/914 manual are the same. Both can only do 100 hz crossover.

I have NHT Super Zeros across the front with a newly purchased SVS 25-31PCi.
Will it matter that the receiver doesn't have 80mhz crossover with my speakers?
Thanks again

No, it just means that more lower frequencies (100Hz vs. 80Hz) will be sent to your subwoofer. Some people prefer to have a bit more bass handled by their main speakers (down to 80Hz or 60Hz) which is why the additional crossover points are desired. But, I'm assuming the Super Zeros are probably good (at best) down to 60Hz.

Does the 914 have a full version of MCAC or just speaker level and distances?

You can always set your mains as Large and that will ignore the crossover point of the receiver.
