I am looking at getting a Pioneer Elite 45 to replace my older Kenwood reciever (5.1 and no DTS). I will be using this receiver almost 100% for movies. I have PSB Image 5Ts for the fronts, PSB 9C for center a Kenwood subwoofer and Infinity minuettes for the surrounds. Is the Pioneer Elite 45 more receiver than I need if I'm not going to use it for music? Should I be looking at the less expensive Pioneer 912 or the Kenwood 6070 or some other comparably priced receiver and use the other money to upgrade my surrounds?
