Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

Yes, I love PLIIx. The difference between 5.1 and 7.1 is very noticeable to me, even with lossless audio (DD True HD + PLIIx is magnificent), because most Blu Rays are still 5.1. However, I've been...

Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

However, PLIIx can still be used with lossless 5.1 audio, correct? So, blu rays with 5.1 DTS-HD MA will play only via 5 speakers if you have a 7 channel set-up (with Pio). Or you could apply Neo:6...

Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

Unless you're on a very strict budget, I'd go for the 919 for another $100.

Things 919 has that the 819 doesn't:

An extra 10 watts per channel
7 channels vs 5
Advanced MCACC
Standing wave...

Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

Have you tried getting PLIIx to work on a dts track.

Other Denon owners get this displayed: DTS + PLIIX CINEMA

I don't think that's just the way it is. PLIIx can work with DD or DTS, but not...

Re: Are there any Pioneer receiver owners here?

That's what I thought too for many years, but a few months ago several people told me that you can use PLIIx on DTS tracks (converting 5.1 to 7.1) with most receivers, but not Pioneers. That the...

I really like the Pio Receivers, but for some reason they won't...
