Figured I would go ahead and get my feet wet with my first post. 9 more to go and I can send messages.. ' hooray ' . I may have that many before I get the system installed as I'm green.. Question for all past and present VSX-1019 owners. First this though....Okay, so it's 2015 now and I have a VSX-1019 brand new, still in the box. Thats right, same goes for my speaker system. Klipsch floor fronts, rears, center, bass and Harmony One remote still in factory sealed boxes/packaging. I bought these end of 09 but they have been in storage ever since... Long story
I am going to be setting up the speakers soon, looking for input as to whether you would use the VSX-1019 or sell it and seek a newer AVR. I would like to be able to use the 1019 if possible
No reason not to use the 1019. I used it for quite a while as my main AVR, it did fine work driving an Energy RC setup. It is now serving as a music mostly receiver in my bedroom, with my old Oppo BDP-83 as the music source. The 1019 is reliable, has more than enough power and works well with the Oppo, a Vizio display and is just chugging along and sounds great.

I understand I can stream through the PS3 using an app on my mac. However, I do want to be able to play sacd and dvd-a disc also but the slim does not support format. I think I can get around this problem by utilizing a SACD decoder when streaming sacd music files on the hard drive. At the present I've been researching BDP's .... I'm thinking the Pio BDP 62-FD might be an suitable option supporting the sacd and dvd-a formats.
Any recommendations on a reasonably priced BDP to compliment the VSX-1019 that supports sacd and dvd-a ?
Or any other suggestions?
If the 62FD is selling at the same price range as the Oppo 103D, I'd go with the Oppo.
