    I was just sent a New product alet email today from CNet that shows two retailers carrying it:
    CNET Pioneer VSX-D912
    Looks like a nice reciever, and I am very interested in it for the current $319 price. The Pioneer site even says that it has an aluminum front panel. That really is suprizing at this price. Has anyone seen this front panel in person? How does it look?

    See this thread over at AVS forum for an update.

    There is a person near the end on page 5 or 6 that has it and was giving a list of the features!

    For the life of me I can't find a good solid reason for anyone to pick up a 912 vs. a deeply discounted 811.

    They look practically identical from what I read at the Pioneer site.

    p.s.

    I'm an 811 owner and very happy with it. [​IMG]

    Doesn't the 912 have Auto-MACCC over the 811?

    As well as 110 w/channel vs 100 and a lcd remote which the 811 does not have, 7 advanced surround modes vs 5 (811), and I think that is it.

    Wheres the deeply discounted 811's? So far around the web they still seem to hover around $250-280...and for that price difference, I can't imagine NOT spending the bucks and getting the 912. I'm curious to see what the price point will be on the 812 and 712 if the 912 is around 300 online!...hopefully this will be the new era of sub-$200 6.1 receivers. [​IMG]

    The site lists them as:
    The new receivers will be available in March at a suggested retail price of $275 for the VSX-D412-K; $300 for the VSX-D712-K; $365 for the VSX-D812-K; and $475 for the VSX-D912-K.

    After reading the thread on AVS forum it looks like the lowest x-over setting is at 100Hz. That's pretty bad if you have bigger bookshelfs or floorstanding speakers.

    That is what the 811 has so I would assume that the new models will have the same thing.
