I am trying to figure out the differences between the Pioneer vsx42 elite and the vsx 1022k. I see there is 2 zones on the elite but other than that can anyone shed some light? Is the video quality the same? How about sound quality? Would anyone recommed either of these receivers? This is my first purchase and my budget is around 400$. Thanks

The bottom 3 to 4 Elites andthe top 3-4 Pioneers tend to mirror each other. The Elite 60 = the 1122, etc. There won't be much difference. The Elite 42 has a 12 volt trigger, IR Control and the Zone 2 Pre-Outs. The 1022 is listed as having a multi-channel DSD to PCM converter. But Pioneers website often gives conflicting information. But they both weight around 20.44 lbs, have an Anchor Bay video processor and the same audio DSP's (and probably the same Digital to Analog Converters) and so audio and video performance will be the same. The Elites carry a 2 year warranty vs one year for Pioneers. Then there's the orange display on the Elites. I used to try and keep up with this stuff but Pioneer's and Elite's got real confusing this year. The 1122 is really a replacement for the 1021, the 1022 replaced the 921, there's no 922, Class D amps in the Pioneer line, etc. Too much for me to keep up with.
