Has anybody listened to or used this receiver? How does it compare to the Pioneer VSX49TXI ?
I love how Bob Carver names his products, the result being that one cannot mention them by name without praising them!
(Remember his "Amazing" Loudspeaker from the 1980s?)
i will let you know in a week, i get mine in 1 week.
should sound great.
i can not wait to get it.
I was very impressed with its sound quality--nice neutral character with no hint of brightness or edginess. Also, with the same amp section as the Cinema Grand, it will deliver plenty of power, have no problem with lower impedances, and run cool.
I also think it will be supported with updates much more readily than the Japanese mass-market flagships. In fact, they have a flash upgrade that is available for download at their website right now.
It doesn't have any built in equalization like the Pioneer, but I think you'll find it sounds better overall, including 2 channel playback.
