    Hello all,

    I have a Pioneer VSX-LX302 that I am trying to figure out if I can use it in our theater that has a 9.2 speaker setup. I'm left with a set of surround speakers to connect. We just upgraded our projector to a 4K and our old Denon does not have the ability to support it. Is there a work a round for the 2nd set of surrounds or are we going to have to buy a better receiver?

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I would think that you need to go with the VSX-LX303

    For much less money, you can get 9.2 with the Onkyo TX-NR787 THX
    It's only $449.00 now on Amazon.
    I purchased it a couple months ago from BHphotoVideo, but I think it may be out of stock (at BH) now in favor of a newer model.

    I have not had any problems with it and I come from the old year 2002 purchase of a Pioneer THX Elite VSX-47TX that the Onkyo has now replaced.

    Of course, I doubt anything will last me as long as that old heavy (and expensive) boat of a Pioneer.
