    Pioneer Elite VSX-26TX 429.00
    27TX-549.00
    29TX-699.00
    I am looking at these because I dont need 7.1 all I need is 5.1 due to the room that I have. All are new receivers.
    Thanks

    Any particular reason it has to be Pioneer?
    My vote would go towards the Outlaw 1050, Yamaha HTR-5490, Denon AVR-1802, or Onkyo TX-DS595.

    If you want a great remote and AC-3 demod go with the 29.
    If you want a AC-3 demod go with the 27.
    If you want a great receiver go with the 26.
    If for some reason you need an extra remote for the 29 (and manual) give me an email as I have one kicking around.

    Thanks
    Ill keep that in mind about the remote. That might come in handy. I have not listen to any of them. From what I have read the 27 and 29 are the same except for the panels and remote. Has anybody listened to these? If so can they compare and contrast between the 3 I have yet to listen to them, but Ill do that tommorrow.
    Thanks for you imput.
    Mike
