    On SACD and progressive scan video? Specifically up against the Pioneer DV-47a if anyone has any experience of the two of them.

    Thanks.

    Hi,
    I have owned both of these units and the onkyo was much better in terms or sound quality and picture. The onkyo has burrbrowns compared to cirrus DAC's in the pioneer. The onkyo remote sucks and both units have so so deinterlacing with video sources, but the Onkyo looks great wih film(99% of my viewing). See ecoustics.com for multiple reviews(magazine and online).
