no. Not until it's announced I've never seen a Pioneer product leak out like the Denon 5900 did. You'll have to wait until it's announced which should be tomorrow. Can you wait that long I know its tough but try, you can do it.
See the September 5th Pioneer press releases. (I can't post a link because I don't post enough messages!)
Frankly, I was disappointed with this press release. It seems that key new features are Dolby Pro Logic IIx, USB input, better MCACC, MCACC output to a PC, and a new remote control. The 59Ai DVD players seems interesting, though.
The MCACC in the 49TXi is a 9-band MCACC. However, you are correct that the X-Band feature is being touted as new.
I did not see the part about the German speaker connectors (are they different from the current ones in the 49TXi?) or the 10kg power transformer (is it different from the current one in the 49TXi?) in the press release. Perhaps you could let us know the source of your information.
I regret that there is no USB connector in 49TXi. There is a RS-232 port, but is not available for end users.
A good deal of misinformation in your posts David. There's no such thing as 7-band MCACC never has been never will be. The numbers 5 and 9 were chosen for a reason the 9-band is one EQ every octave while the 5-band is one eq every 2 octaves. You don't own a 49TXi I couldn't imagine an owner with such misinfo. There's alot of rumors and crazy ideas sometimes on these forums so don't believe everything you hear unless you hear it from me.
That's why you shouldn't listen to those people. Since they don't own them personally they don't spend the time trying learn all about them instead they spend they're time trying to figure out what to say so that you'll buy one. In their defense they do sell alot of products it's almost impossible to know all the features of all the products especially the real technical stuff when no one is ever going to ask them questions like what the slew rate of the 49TXi is.
