I thought I had one lined up at first I was ready to get the Pioneer vsx-21txh till I found out somethings about it if you are curious here is my other posting http://www.hometheatershack.com/forums/general-discussion/23146-power-consumption-av-receivers-new-post.html I would like to get advice form all of you to the following

1 Should I choose a different receiver and which one.
2 Should I stick with the Pioneer

If possible I would like hear from owners of this Pioneer model or Pioneer owners in general as well.
Any advice that you guys can offer will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you Jack.
If you get an AS receiver make sure you do the measurements in a 8 position grid around the primary listening area. If you'd like some help let me know I've done AS(Auddysey) calibration successfully numerous times.

Selecting a receiver is simple. Just get one with the features you want and move on. Most amps handle 4 ohm speakers just fine. If you have a problem(very unlikely) just let us know.

I buy receivers purely on looks/features.

All I need is HDMI repeating and Pre-amp outs.

So I got the cheapest receiver that has both. The HK AVR 247. It works just fine for me and only cost 200 bucks. That's how simple getting a receiver is. Spend your time on the speakers not the receiver. :bigsmile:
