I'm interested in buying the VSX-47TX, but it has been out since last fall. Anyone know if Pioneer has announced a replacement for it yet? If so, how much? When will it street?

Thanks for any info.

I would suspect that these will run for more than a year because to my knowledge they have not released the lower models in this line. While Manufactures do usually replace receivers every year, that is not the case with flagship receivers which is how they are treating these models. They may replace the 47 I guess but more likely they would lower the price and introduce something in between the two. I do not think there will be any great break through (like dpl2, dts-es, dd-ex) this year. All of this is speculation so take it for what it is worth.

I haven't heard any news of them replacing these fairly new units yet, but they will be replacing the lower line Elites very soon. There has been a production delay, due to chip problems, according to Pioneer.

This may not be the place to ask this, but I have seen mention of the 49txi. What exactly is this? Is it an upgrade option or is it a totally updated unit?

Thanks for the help here guys.

Chad, just out of curiosity, what is your source? You'd think if they were releasing that soon, some info. would be out.

I don't necessarily have to have the latest and greatest, but a replacement unit would do two things. One, give me the option of the new unit, for what I am sure will be higher price than I can currently get the 47TX. Two, drive down the prices even further on the 47TX.

Option two may be the way I would go. Any more thoughts anyone could share will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Cliff

A friend of mine works at a Hi Fi store and they deal mainly with pioneer and pioneer elite receivers.
I can check again later when I talk to him and reply back here.

Thanks, Chad, that would be great. Since I'm not in a hurry, I might as well take advantage of any new models offered. I anxiously await anything further you or anyone else might add.

Thanks,
Cliff

I just got off the phone with my friend and this is what info I was given:

Pioneer elite VSX41 FOR $599 - This month

This one will not be THX certified. Suppose to have 6.1, DD, DTS, PLII I believe 100w * 6.

Pioneer elite VSX43 for $1000 - July/August

Pioneer elite VSX45 for $1200 - July/August

Thanks, Chad, for that info. So, the next units out are down in the line from the 47TX. Maybe a Christmas/first of the year release for a replacement or up the line unit? If so, I definitely won't be waiting until then. Did your friend say anything about replacements for anything equal to or above the 47TX?

Thanks,
Cliff

Look under 'Upgrade' and ' new ax10i'
This is just what I read, I have no idea what is true.
