    if you are running Klipsch speakers, then there's no need whatsoever for the amount of power these receivers are outputting. get yourself a nice preamp and a 100-125wpc power amp and save some $$!

    Brad,
    what exactly are you trying to accomplish? louder for your rock, or a litte more laid back for the Klipsch? how about a moderately priced H/K 525 to do everything for you? But in answer to your question, I would take the Pioneer. Bob Carver can now use his 'Carver' name on his electronics so things may be changing for Sunfire. (don't ask the Carver story). Otherwise how about a Rotel 1066 pre and a 1075 amp for cheaper than the other two?

    I have the Pioneer 49TX mated with Klipsch reference RF-5s , RC-7, and RS-7s. I beleive Kipp Jones and Bob Roulier(sp?) also have a similiar setup and both have the 49TX they are also members on this forum.
