    As James says, I can't picture "me" wanting to have two different sources playing 2 different outputs in two different rooms in my home. My home just isn't that big. Re: the "personality" of the receiver. This is a very "opinionated topic", but my opinion is that these receivers, with...

    Thanks. I use a lot of different forums and everyone is a bit different on how to copy in pictures and links and such. Couldn't figure how to do that for the life of me. But I do love my 1014! Watched Roy Orbison "Black and White" yesterday and John Fogerty "Premonition". I've got a...

    Here it is. Go to the Pioneer web page and checkout the VSX-52TX they have a back panel view of it and it is identical.

    I am really enjoying mine. I am still learning how use all it's cool features. I'm pretty much just landing on using a few key features. The MCACC (what does the last C stand for?) is absolutely essentlial. Then I did a manual MCACC and increased the center channel 1 db and my surrounds 1 db...

    The OSD point above and the intricacies of it are good examples of what product managers lust after for product.next releases. Having been a product manager in a past life I can assure you that forums like this are great sources for next generation product requirements. If you don't see it...

    Yep, OSD set up features, not operational things like volume and input select. I can see how that would be convenient for you, but you still need to have the infrared someplace with line of sight. It isn't a problem for me, as I have the receiver behind a glass door equipment rack right...

    The 1014 does have OSD. You need to have a cable from your top Monitor Out jack on the back of the unit to a video in jack on the TV. Page 8, first page of chapter two in users manual. That should do it. Then make sure you have TV set to that video in. It works great.

    I am really loving my Pioneer VSX-1014TX-K! I just watched a couple fo really stupid movies, Kill Bill 1, and Tourque. Tourque because I love motorcycles and I am in the Northeast under 3 feet of snow at the moment. And Kill Bill because my son grabbed it of the shelf at BlockBuster. (I just...

    I know this is the thread to end all threads about the 1014. I have finally got mine all installed and wired up to my new Klipsch F-3s, C3/S3 and KSW-12 speakers and my new Sony 42 LCD. This is one really great receiver. The directions are vague and poorly written at points, but all in all...

    Just brought mine home from BB in Nashua NH. Avoided Massachusetts 5% sales tax and got 10% off the $499 list, bought the extended warranty after reading in here that a few of youse guyz have had problems. Now, haven't even unpacked it but am wondering, if I need a phono preamp for my...

    Will I need to get on off board phone equalizer to support my moving magnet phone cartridge/turntable when I buy the 1014, or will it support it? How about for my aging but still very nice cassette deck? I know... I know, ...but I'm old and not going to replicate my entire analog library in...

    Hey all, I've been lurking for a bit. I am just jumping into HT and have a budget of about $2500. I think I am going to go for one of these Pioneers 1014s. Best Buy has them in my area for $473 Now, I'm undecided on speakers. I was originally going to go for a 5 channel system.. do I need the...
