    Scott I use DPLII movie for two channel movies. I am amazed at how good of a job it does every time I listen to it (the 1014 and DPLII).

    You also get 3 component inputs on the 1015.

    Carlos The shape of your room may hurt you, but I have always found thick carpet a help in the sound of a room. I am glad you like the 1014TX. The price to performance ratio of this receiver is excellent.

    Drew The manual states that it is possible that the subwoofer distance may be longer than actual when the distance is calculated with MCSACC. My sub is about 3 feet closer than calculated by MCACC. I can't complain about this becuase my sub integration is much improved with the 1014TX...

    Ulissez Hmmm... Saying something sounds echoey makes me think that the speaker distances were set incorrectly resulting in problems with channel delays. If you have the chance, run MCACC on both receivers before you listen to them. My 1014 sounds quite good, but I have not compared it to...

    John The movie I listened to at -5 was Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. This is mostly a movie with dialoque. Not a lot of loud stuff. I agree that -5 or even -10 would be way to loud on most action movies or battle scenes. My speaker and my sub have been able to handle reference...

    I usually listen to movies from -20 (Rush In Rio) to -5 (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban). 0 is supposed to be reference level. I think that this would depend on the efficiency of your speakers. -5 is as loud as I have cared to listen. I noticed that my subwoofer integrated with the...

    Installed my 1014TX last night. It was too late to test it my son was sleeping. I did get to test it tonight though. I am really impressed with the power of the 1014. That thing really goes. It will definitely play at a louder level that I am willing to listen to. I listened to Rush in Rio...

    Quick question Does anyone know if the 1014 performs bass management with DVD-Audio or SACDs with the multi-channel inputs? The manual does not address this issue. I am going to install my 1014 tonight and I was not going to hook up multi-channel if there is no bass management. Also, if...

    I picked up a Pioneer 1014TX-K today. I bought it at Best Buy. The sale price was $473 less a 10% coupon or $427. This is a very good deal. I can't wait to hook this baby up tomorrow to put it through its paces. The bad part is it is in a cabinet that weighs about about 700 lbs and I am a...
