    Good point Roger, I never actually thought of that. That's probably exactly why I heard such a large difference... Thanx

    From what I understand Nigel is in the Toronto area or at least the store he was talking about is and I'm not sure about the tax part of it... So Nigel... any more details?

    I only had two speakers set up on the rear surround/second zone terminals. It very well may have just been the factory settings but either way it was louder, and Brent I wasn't bitching, I thought it was quite fun... after all I invited Nigel over for dinner p.s. Nigel, since we are friends...

    Yo Nige buddy old-pal, you can now officially forget the invite for dinner... but that's ok, I will eat your steak as well! Brent: I'm not sure whether it is more control over the woofer movement or not and I'm not "pretending" to know everything such as my friend from above but when I had...

    Nigel, I thought you were somewhat intelligent but you are an idiot, even if I was wrong (which I'm not) you have the mentality of a 5-year-old and it's obvious by your posts in this thread and many other posts you have made.

    How about you go try it and amaze yourself although I'm quite sure that once you have proven me correct you will not admit it... For you to say that me and at least one other person with the exact same amp and many people sitting in front of it when it happened did not actually here any...

    The only possible thing I can be wrong about is that the power doubles. What I absolutely am NOT wrong about is the fact that my two speakers got substantially louder when hooked up this way, if you dont believe me perhaps you should physically try it before you criticize what I am saying. I...

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

    ummmmmmmmmm yes I did, the two front's got substantially louder, and there was only 1 set of speaker wires per speaker the only thing I was wrong when I explained it was that the two speakers were hooked up to the surround back or second zone posts on the back and not the front main posts but...

    do you only have two speakers hooked up? and if so which terminals are they hooked up to? If I unhook everything and have 1 speaker on the front left and 1 speaker on the front right, then under the SURR BACK SYSTEM menu you have normal selected, if this is changed to bi-amp the power doubles to...

    I absolutely have done this, I had my two tower speakers hooked up to the front left and front right which are not bi-ampable while I was waiting for the rest of the speakers and I went in to the menu and choose bi-amp under the rear surround option and my two front speakers instantly had double...

    And your speakers DO NOT have to be bi-ampable, when you choose bi-amp in the menu it will just double the power going to the front mains

    you could use the rca audio output on your Tivo and patch that directly to your TV but then still use the optical or digital coax cable to go from the Tivo to your 1014, so then you can use the 1014 for "good" audio and just use the tv speakers for "regular" audio

    I am still confused about all the surround options on my 1014 let alone another one on the 1015... I am using a 5.1 set up so when watching a simple two channel television show what surround option do you choose? And then for DVD's there is DTS or Dolby depending on the disc and my preference...

    so when you guys are watching regular two channel tv what setting do you use on your 1014? And I am only using a 5.1 set-up but I'm not sure if that makes a difference, and then for everything else do you use auto-surround?

    I had both the 1014 and the 54tx in my home and ran MCACC on both and there was a subtle difference bwteen the two with the 54 sounding a little "softer" although the difference was very minor and it could be chalked up to the advanced MCACC
