I am planning on upgrading in the near future and basically my decision has come down to either a Pioneer SC (leaning toward the 35) OR a Denon AVR-4311CI. The big factor for me is the EQ ability of each, as right now I only have Audyssey 2EQ.
The Denon has MultEQ XT32 and pre-outs for 11 channels (though it can only drive 9 at a time) and does heights OR wides. The Pio has MCACC and pre-outs for 9 channels, and does wides BUT NOT heights. Not sure how big a deal that might be so I will call it a wash. The Denon has 2 HDMI outs so thats somewhat an advantage, but the ICE amps in the Pio make up for that in spades....
So its down mostly to the EQ. Which EQ program is better in your opinion and why?
Looking forward to your guys thoughts.
