I'm currently looking to snag either of these systems. It will be going in the living of a small apartment, so I don't need anything massive.
On Newegg right now, they have a combo for the PC60 and a Pioneer VSX822-K for 450, and the PC60 with a Yamaha receiver for $399.
They also have the MLT-2 for 330, in which I would have to buy a receiver along with it making it closer to 600 total.
Which do you think is the better deal? Is the MLT-2 worth the extra cash? and if not, which of those receivers are better? I've used a Pioneer 1022k before, and liked it. Never used Yamaha.
You didn't mention the Yamaha model, while you did mention the Pioneer VSX-822.
I looked at Newegg and the Yamaha is the RX-v373. I'd get the Pioneer since it has networking, Pandora streaming, Airplay, etc.
Oh yes, sorry!
Do you think the def tech is a better buy than the MLT-2?
Don't know, but they have owner feedback on the newegg site.
Never heard either one in person.
