    Ersan, I'm not sure what the differences between THX Select and Select 2 are. I also could not find any information on the THX website. Anybody else?

    Chuck, Nice review. Now I hope I don't ruin it for you when I tell you that Pioneer just announced the VSX-1015TX that is due out in April. Just go on enjoying your new 1014TX like I am!

    Guy, Pioneer along with other A/V manufacturers come out with new models every year. The 1014TX was announced in January 2004 and actually hit the stores around late Summer/Early Fall 2004. Figure a replacement model to come out at a similar timeframe in 2005.

    Sean, You might try to set the F/L/C speakers to small and lower the crossover setting. The default level is 80 Hz, so you might want to set it lower than that. This way you are still using the bass capabilities of your fronts but letting your sub handle the really low frequencies. You might...

    KennyD, I too recommend the 1014TX. Try OneCall. They are an authorized online dealer for regular Pioneer products. You can go on the Pioneer website to see other authorized dealers as well. Also for sketch of back of the 914 and 1014TX, look on the Pio website for the 2004 A/V brochure...

    Tingwe, I can answer your second question. I believe the receiver is putting out what they call Pink Noise to the speakers. To me it sounds like when you tune your TV to a station and just get snow and no picture.

    My room is 17W x 15D x 8H with speakers sensitivity of 86db. I listen to music anywhere from -36 to -24db and HT anwhere from -30 to -18db. I have not listened to it below -14db.

    you probably need the pre-amp. You need to turn the signal from your turntable into a line-level signal.

    Yes the microphone comes with the 1014TX. Its not a fancy microphone but it does the job. From what I have heard, MCACC is more accurate than YPAO.

    You can connect analog audio components to the 1014TX as there are analog input jacks. There is no dedicated phono jack on the 1014TX. However, if you can get your turntable signal converted to line-level, then you should be able to use the analog input jacks.

    Stephen, Lucky for you that Costco.com didn't come out with their deal on the VSX-1012K (a rebadged 45TX) when you sold your 43TX. Timing is everything! Although some people would have still liked that Elite badge and glossy finish.

    Stephen, Wow...thats 6 receivers in 2 1/2 years! I hope I never get that bug that you have. The 1014TX is my first A/V receiver and hopefully will last me for a while... :b

    Tod, The 1014TX will be much more flexible. The cross-over settings for the 1014TX are 50hz, 80hz, 100hz, 120hz, 150hz, and 200hz, with the default setting at 80hz.

    Earle, Sound & Vision and Home Theater Mag has a review of the Elite VSX-52TX in their current magazines. I haven't read the reviews personally yet, but I believe both verify that the amp section is very strong in the 52TX. The 1014TX is believed to use the same amp as the 52TX. I saw that my...

    Peter, Onecall still has it on sale until this Friday with free 3-day air shipping. At that price, you will probably be paying at most $50 after shipping from most unauthorized dealers. IMO, it probably is worth it just to go with an authorized dealer for a unit in this price range. Of...

    Kevin, Let's at least compare apples to apples. 1014TX 52TX Actually, when I was debating between the 1014TX and the 52TX, it was one of the concerns. True, the Elite 52TX does look slicker. However, after seeing this in person at J&R and now my house, it is quite a nice looking...

    Steve, While I don't have the Monitor line, according to the Paradigm Catalog, these speakers are compatible with 8 ohms, so the 1014TX should have no problem driving them. I can't comment on your other questions. GL.

    Joe, I have NEVER heard the Paradigms to be considered bright. I've always heard them to be laid-back and warm. Well, its good to know that they mate well with the 1014TX because I will probably be picking up some Paradigms next week..although it will be the Performance Series..Atoms or Titans...

    John, I hope everything works out with you. I went with OneCall because I heard their customer service was pretty good in that they would even ship a new unit out even before they received the old one back. Good luck.

    Kurt, Everything seems fine so far. I haven't had too much time to play with it. I have only hooked up a dvd player to it using the coaxial connection and two mains (JBL E20s) which I have for a in-home audition. :b At first I though the unit was not very loud as I was listening at -27db to...

    Bruce, Kurt_G above has almost the same set-up as you and he has reported no problems so far. I know he has the Axiom M22ti as mains, VP150 center and QS8 surrounds. Maybe you got a bad unit.

    Well, I finally hooked up my 1014TX and its great so far. It sounds even better in my house than when I listened to it at J&R. I only have two speakers hooked up to it now as I am still deciding which speaker system to get. I ran the Auto MCACC and it detected the speaker distance exactly at...

    Well, if there is no fix for this, then both Pioneer and Dish should have a disclaimer on their respective websites warning consumers about the incompatiblities between their products.

    Quinn, They are most likely unauthorized dealers and Pioneer most likely will not honor the warranty. You can check Pioneer's website for a list of authorized internet etailers, there are quite a few. For $50 more, I would just get the 1014TX from an authorized dealer and you won't have to...

    Well, my 1014TX is on its way! I got an email notification from OneCall telling me it shipped this morning. Just so happens I'm going to be very busy at work next week and probably won't get to play with it much. I was also hoping to negotiate with a local dealer who finally got some more stock...
