    Don't know of a picture, but the 2004 Pioneer receiver catalog (pdf) has a line drawing of the back panel.

    I know what you mean. Luckily I had a Pioneer before the 1014, so I was familiar with most of the features and only had a few to learn.

    That's correct. While watching the movie you can use the 'Acoustic EQ' button on the remote to cycle through the EQ settings (All channels adjust, front align, custom settings if you made any, or eq off) to see which sounds best to you.

    Thanks Jose and Yung. Looks like an extra 10 watts/channel and WMA on the 1015? Pioneer is cranking these new models out quickly....

    I recently upgraded from a Pioneer VSX-912 to the 1014. I've posted my impressions online at: http://swbg1.tripod.com/pioneer_1014.htm

    Yung - do you still have a 1014 on order?

    Looks like it might not have PLIIx....looks a lot like a 53tx (which I could have gotten on close-out for under $700 at an authorized dealer)

    I've checked with a couple of Best Buys also and they aren't even aware the receiver exists. I've been keeping an eye on the authorized online dealers and the ones that have them in stock seem to be running the full $499 price. I guess I'm waiting to see one in person at Best Buy - and then its...

    How do all these unauthorized dealers get these units? It's frustrating when the authorized dealers are always out of stock, or haven't even received them in the stores, but the unauthorized dealers seem to have no trouble stocking these units.

    1014 owners - I was looking at the 52tx manual from the Pioneer site and noticed it has some sort of Dialog enhancement button on the remote to boost dialog - does the 1014 have this? Have you tried it?

    Sounds like you are sold on the 1014 Stephen! Good to hear the upgrade history from someone who had similar gear. One concern I have is sound for music. I am gaining an appreciation for music sound quality and wonder how for example the 1014 and 54tx differ (DACs, hi-bit sampling etc) - I don't...

    I am considering this Chad. The 912 does a decent job with HT - I wonder how noticeable an upgrade the 1014 would be. The question is do I want to make this jump or wait awhile and making a bigger jump to something better (like your 54tx for example). I'm also curious to see if the Pioneer at...

    Thanks...I don't do much 2-channel listening either so your general impressions were just what I was looking for. I'm glad the Pioneer system has a "front" equalization setting. With the Denon AVR-3805 I had for a few weeks, I wasn't very happy with what the "flat" setting did to my main...

    Stephen - thanks for the impressions on your new 1014. Can you let us know how it compares to the 43tx for music? Does the auto-mcacc equalize all speakers or just the center and surrounds to match the fronts?

    on the Pioneer website: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...866598,00.html I notice they have the weight listed at 19 pounds (?)...don't think that can be accurate.
