First, Pioneer wins no awards for the name of this receiver, but they do should be awarded for packing this much technology into a mid-range receiver. It’s got three HDMI inputs, Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, HDMI HD upscaling, six digital inputs, microphone based multi-channel acoustic calibration, Digital iPod input, XM and Sirius Satellite Radio, and 130 watts to each of it’s 7.1 channels.
What this means to you: Those of you looking for a well price receiver but don’t want to spring for Pioneer’s Elite series will be more than pleased with the VSX-1019TXH-K.
Cost: $600 this June @ Pioneer
