It has been a year in the making. It is practically done with the exception of some furniture and updated components and speakers. I knocked out three walls and put up a support beam. Used dry-fog paint for the ceiling. Gives it kind of an industrial look. I am shopping A/V receivers and am stuck between the an Onkyo and Pioneer vsx 1021k. I like the pioneer because of the apple interface and remote functions for the Ipad. But I like the onkyo because well it's an onkyo. Any views either way would be great thanks. Here are a couple of pics of the room.

I think you have to go with the features you need, so... Pioneer.

The pioneer does not have THX certification. I that really all that important considering that everyone tweeks their system to perform as they desire?

THX certification should never be the sole reason for choosing one receiver over another. IMO, when it comes to receivers, THX certification is not worth paying anything extra for. There are many receivers out there that meet or exceed "THX Standards" but have opted to save their customers some cash by not to paying THX to put the logo on the front panel and thus passing that cost along to the consumer. I have always owned Onkyo gear, but I know lots of folks have recommended the Pioneer 1021 and it's a popular model. I agree with Nick - if the 1021 offers the connectivity and features you need, then that's what you should get.
