I had this receiver for a long time, was there top of the line model way back, got hit by lightning and is fried, I see most of the new receivers cost way less than what I paid for the pioneer ($1400) and look like they do a lot more and have way more power. The pioneer was 110 x2 front and 40 to the center and surrounds, I guess the good thing about todays modern receivers are they are rated the same wattage all the way around. So in the $300- $400 price range what would be a good replacement?
If you like your Pioneer check out the new vsx1014. Lots of favorable comments about it here and check out the pricing at the beginning of the receivers section here. Also look at the Marantz 5400 at hifi.com.
