My sister's fiance, who is an employee at a big retail chain, can get the Pioneer 1014TX receiver for under $350. We want to get a receiver for my parents for Christmas (to go with their new HDTV they bought a few months back). I've been out of the receiver game for a while and did a search on the 1014, seems to get good-to-great reviews here. But since time is short (I have to buy within a couple of days) I just wanted to see if people thought that there's a better deal out there for that price. Among the selection my sis' fiance can get, that receiver looks to be the best. But if there's a different make/model that can be purchased online for under $400 that would be better than the 1014T, please recommend it to me for investigation. Are there any glaring weaknesses or bugs with the 1014? My parents aren't luddites, but they aren't the most technosavvy either. This receiver, being mass market, should be fairly easy for them to work, right? Many thanks!
