I bought a Pioneer vsx-1019 receiver about 2 weeks ago. Sound quality is excellent and the amp seems powerful enough to last me a while. But....
The VSX-1019 does not have pre-outs for later amplification needs. The Elite VSX-21txh appears to have pre-outs but the picture is fuzzy on pioneers website so I cant make out if it is a full 7.1, 5.1 or stereo preout setup. It is only about $100 more for the elite and i only lose about 10 watts. 120wx7 for 1019 vs. 110x7 for elite 21txh. Seems kind of like a no-brainer. What kind of pre-outs would i need?
I am trying to find out if any of you guys either a) have the elite 21txh. b) have any thoughts on the elite 21txh. or c) can find out if the pre-outs would be sufficient for later amplification needs. I currently only have 5.1 setup, probably will not go 7.1 anytime soon.
