Ok, I was looking at the H/K avr330 but now my budget has been slightly slashed. The avr230 is now in the $300-400 (street price). I see there is a Pioneer VSX-1014TX out there for the same price, feature packed. Have any of you heard these two receivers.

Now that I am in the $300-400 range I am worried that their are better choices than the H/K for my Athena speakers.

Gererally speaking the entire AVR line from HK(leave out the AVR7300) sounds the same. The feature set from the AVR230 to 330 will be the only "real" difference.

Both of those receivers are well worth their respective price. I think you will do fine with either one. I have not heard the 1014tx, but i have heard the 914 model and it was quite pleasing for a low budget receiver. I think it's certainly better than Onkyo, Yamaha, and Sony's receivers in this price range. I would say that features would be the deciding factor in those receivers you mentioned with a slight edge to the 1014tx IMO
