it's been awhile!
I have an old Pioneer Elite VSX-72 from 2006 that I still use to this day..never had any problems with it..love it. However with technology moving so fast, i was wondering if I am missing out on newer receivers? The Pioneer only outputs at 720p if I want to use it as an HDMI passthru (which I dont)..doesnt have any of the newer HD/Blueray codecs, or network capability. I have a PS3, an Xbox, Apple TV, Blueray, HDTV, HD satellite, etc..none of which go through the receiver for video passthru..i just use optical from the sources to the receiver. So im stuck with Dolby or DTS(which is still awesome to me)
I also see that a lot of the new Pioneers/Denons, etc are $500-$700 instead of the $1200 I spent on the Pioneer.
Would it be worth it for me to drop $600-$700 for a newer receiver with the newest technology..or do I have to spend over a grand to get better than I have now?
