im a newbie here so please dont throw stones at me ( words are a ok with me lol )
what is VP you talk about? what is an ice amp? i had my old yamaha
receiver for about 13 years so i went with the yam advanteage 800
since thats what i could afford with my other new additions. i went
with yamaha mostly b/c of how long my previous yam lasted.
and also can someone tell me where should you place the last set of surround speakers
in the 7.1 setup? ive seen diff setups showing them in the front and then others as
side speakers and maybe more showing them at the very rear??? i thought that there
would be a spot that would already be determined for them to go.
its not like we are trying to place our 22.2 speaker setup that they say would go with
the ultra hdtv that is about 16 times better pic quality than todays hdtvs. it does say
it requires at least a 60 inch hdtv b/c of its specs.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultra_hd
Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) (or Ultra HDTV, 4320p, and Ultra High Definition Video
(UHDV)) is an experimental digital video format, currently proposed under the leadership of NHK.
It is 16 times the resolution of HDTV. IMAX has roughly the same resolution as UHDTV.
Wide Quad High Definition (WQHD) and Quad Full High Definition (QFHD) are not the same
resolution as that of UHDTV and represent intermediate resolutions mid-way between those
of HDTV and UHDTV.
and heres page on 22.2 speaker setup:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/22.2
Upper layer: Nine speakers above ear level
Middle layer: Ten speakers at ear level
and wait for it:
Lower layer: Five speakers below ear level

Of course, every AVR has its trade-offs, and per the various boards I've visited while researching, the RX-Ax000s seem to have better VP, arguably (ad nauseum) better equalization, particularly for the sub, and waaay fewer major hardware failures than some of the other brands right now. The lack of significant hardware problems with the RX-A's is a big deal to me since my Denon 889 just died at ~2 yrs old. But if you want power, man, you want the Pioneer ice.
