I just got this in from Parts Express. They want me to pre-order from the new line of Pioneer AV receivers; _vsx&utm_source=Retail&utm_medium=Email_Newsletter&utm_content=View+All+Bottom&u tm_campaign=email030811

Four new AV receivers all with essentially the same wattage output per channel?! That can't be right! If it is, that should make for some interesting conversations on the sales floor as the Best Buy customer hears why they should spend more money just for more buttons and knobs, whistles and bells.

"No, ma'm, there's no difference between any of the receivers. But for an extra $100 you can plug your iPad into this one."

Wow!!! What a sales strategy these guys have!!!

When do they get to the point the AV receiver also operates your iRobot/Roomba vacuum cleaner?

Sell the Sizzle?

Convergence is coming. Soon, everything entertainment in the house will be available from either a single device or several devices all talking to one another.

The 'stand alone' stereo will be even more marginalized than it is today.
