I currently own the 49TX and was thinking about the 49TXi. I know it's due to be available very soon. I was wondering what the other 49TX owners plan to do. Are you going to upgrade your existing unit? Trade up for the new 49TXi? Stand pat? I'd like to know why you're making your choice. I also have heard that the 47Ai is coming out soon but I haven't heard if Pioneer is going to have upgrades available for their Elite RPTV line. I have the HD-620 and would love to upgrade everything to fire wire connections and rid myself of the wire-hell nightmare I have behind my system. One last thing, in your opinion is it better to add a separate amp to the 49TX/49TXi? I'm wondering if it's worth it. Thanks for reponses in advance.
