Looks like the new Pioneer Elite models are due out soon. Pioneer usually has been issuing a press release on the new elite models sometime in late June. So far nothing from their website, but maybe something will be posted shortly. I did a google search on "elite 56txi" and the 3 new Elite models show up on Kiefs. MSRP on the VSX-52TX is $1,000, VSX-54TX is $1,500 and VSX-56TXi is $1,700. The MSRP for the 54TX and 56TXi are the same as for the current 53TX and 55TXi models. No specs on any of the 3 new elite models are posted yet. They also are showing the Pioneer VSX-1014TX-K which might be a rebadged elite model for $659. This player is due out in August. Looks like we got a lot of new models to choose from! I can't wait!
