    Hey I'm looking for a receiver with Automatic calibration, and I'm considering the Onkyo TXSR702B, and the Pioneer 1015. Anybody have any words of wisdom for either? Does anyone know how well Onkyo or Pioneer does the auto-eq? Need HELP!

    i had the onkyo 702, its an awesome sounding and looking receiver. i compared it to the pioneer 1014 and for me the Onkyo was the hands down winner. Although the pioneer does have the better auto calibration.

    In what way was it better? Did it pack more punch?

    to me it sounded louder at lower levels, i have to crank the pioneer to -20db to acheive the same loudness as -40db on the Onkyo. Not to mention the Onkyo has a huge remote that allows you to do almost anything. I feel that you would be more than happy with the Onkyo, If i could have afforded it i would have kept it. I couldn't find a good deal on one at the time i was looking to buy.

    The 1014 strains a lot more when pushing true reference type sound pressure levels than that Onkyo in my experiences with them both.
