    how good is the pioneer VSX-1014 going to be compared to the elite.....

    Once again, don't trust the salesman. He probably knew the "cheaper" reciever didn't have the MCACC enabled. He's obviously trying to sell you the more expensive 55TXi. I own the 1014TX and I don't find the sound echoed or thin. Compared to my previous Denon reciever, the Pioneer is "SMOOOOOOTH"...

    Make sure you press the "auto surround" button on your remote. What you described happened to me as well, and it was easy to correct. And just to make sure, you are using a coax/optical cable right ? And your DVD player is set to "bitstream" or "all" ?

    Okay, I picked up the Pioneer VSX-1014 yesterday for $758 CND. I don't have much time to do a review, but I'll give a quick comparison with my previous Denon AVR-1803. First of all, the Pioneer is MUCH warmer and almost every audio CD I listened to sounded very nice. The denon was warm, but not...

    I hear ya loud and clear. Before my cat urinated on my HT reciever, I had a Denon AVR-1803 hooked up with Paradigm Monitor speakers (M7/CC370) and a Tempest 192L Sub. It was a modest setup but it sounded great to me. My wife would always say it sounds the same as her JVC ghetto blaster we paid...
