For the last two weeks I have been trying to make a decision on a new receiver. I have entertained a Denon AVR-1905, an Onkyo 602, HK 135 and 235, and finally the Pioneer VSX-1014. I first have to admit that I love Harman Kardon receivers. I think they look the best, and I love the sound of them. I have really been looking at the HK 235, and more recently the Pioneer 1014. All the reviews on the Pioneer seem great, and it has a ton of features for the money. It too doesn't look bad. I can also order either of these lines through my work. Pricewise they are both almost identical with the HK 235 being $330 out the door and the pioneer being $360. Component inputs, on screen display, and sound quality were very important to me, and these are along the same lines. If someone out there has messed with these two or been in my shoes, please help me make a decision. The speakers I will be pushing with them will be Polk RTi4 fronts, a Polk CSi3 center, and TruAudio 6.5" in-ceiling rears.
