I could not get the web address to come up but I think the 2012 is the equivalent of the vsx45. From what I have read it should be identical except for the Elite name. There are some very good prices on the 53 if you don't need a phono input I think that's what I would buy.

As I understand it, the Elite, Marantz and h/k are said to be warm. I was looking at either (older) Elite VSX-24TX, Marantz SR-4400 or harman/kardon AVR 230 or 325 and I own Klipsch LaScala speakers.

I am narrowing down to the h/k for more features and 192kHz DACs, but I'm not at all in your budget.

IMO nothing can make Klipsch warm but the Elite can tame the brightness better than any I can think of. Which Klipsch models do you have?
