    I currently have the HK AVR 520, and I am thinking of going to the Pioneer Elite VSX 55TXi, would I see a significant sound increase from the HK? I love the HK, but I am looking for something new and 7 channels, and I REALLY LOVE the Pioneer Elite lineup. It's got 25 watts more per channel than the HK, plus it's a Pioneer Elite. Would this be a worth while upgrade?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!

    Scott,
    As you may see from some of the threads I've started, I'm looking for a new AVR and am also considering the 55, but was told to be careful of stated v actual power ratings. I tried to get someone to give me info on the models I'm looking at including the 3803, Yamaha 3300, and the pioneer, but have'nt gotten a reply yet. It would be nice to do and apples/apples comparo based on tested #'s. If you find something like that that covers these models let me know!
