    I am ready to upgrade from my pioneer vsxd-812 and was strongly considering the Elite VSX-55TXi the only thing holding me back is that I know this receiver has been out for a while and I don't want to buy it and then have a new model come out a couple of months later. I am in no big rush and would be willing to wait a few months. Does anyone know anything about a new model? Thanks?

    A while? Umm. It hasn't been more than about 7/8 months since its release, since I picked up my 53TX just as it was released in early September.

    You won't see new models from Pioneer for a while.

    I'm picking the 55 because I have the elite 47 dvd player and I want to connect them with the i link for dvd audio and sacd. I used to work at an audio video store that sells pioneer (not elite), but they will order elite stuff for me at give it to me for their cost. Havent asked how much that is yet thaugh. Does the 55TXi have component video up conversion?

    I think the only difference between the two is the rs-232 port and the ilink. If you're not going to use these go with the 53. 600 and 1000 are really good prices, far below MSRP.

    Where are you getting those prices Tyree?

    And yes, the difference betwen the 53 and 55 is quite minimal. The remote is different though, but to me, that's not an issue.
