I have a new pb2+ and Axioms M60's, QS8's and m2's for the rear (already have the 150 cc) on the way. My current receiver is a Sony 2ES. While I can't fault Sony as it has done everything I need it to do I can't help but think it won't bring out the full potential of the new setup. I have three choices and after much searching I still have a few questions I am hoping someone can clarify. This system will be used for 80% HT 20% Music The contenders are the Denon 3803, HK7200 and Pioneer 53Tx 1)My setup is going to be 7.1 so I would like a receiver that will bring out the best in this configuration.(Primarily for HT) I know all receivers can matrix 7.1 but I have heard the HK has discrete 7.1 ability even on non flagged DVD's. Is this correct? Do the other 2 have this ability? (THIS IS PROBABLY ONE OF THE BIGGEST DECIDING FACTORS) 2)I have heard great things about the MCACC of the Pioneer. Is it really that good and do the other receivers have this ability? (Even though tweaking via DVE is fun) 3)When people mention the 50 vs 100MHZ video bandwith, does this only matter if you run component video through the receiver? My CV runs straight from the DVD to RPTV. Sorry for the noob questions. I unfortunately live in a small town where I don't have access to listening to the different brands. Right now I am leaning most towards the 53tx based on the MCACC and hearing they have a great power supply. However seeing as HT is a huge factor 7.1 is very important.
