In answer to your question about the component video bandwidth on home receivers, I would be glad to help. The ratings you listed on the Kenwood models are correct. This is because the original VR-7070 had the same 10MHz rating as the VR-7060 and VR-7080. However, Kenwood has up graded the VR-7070 to a VR-7070A that carries the improved 40MHz rating on the component video inputs. With reguards to the Pioneer VSX-D912, the information given to us from Pioneer lists the component output at 28MHz not 50MHz. You may want to call Pioneer directly at 1-800-PIONEER to confirm which is correct.

This might be something to check on if you were planning on buying the VR-7080.
