ok so im new to avs form but i need sum help i don't know if im on the rite section to be talking about problem or issues with receiver's but here we go. so i have the pioneer elite vsx 55txi i dont know what the problem is ive had it for 5 month i use to own a denon 787 but burned out i loved that receiver but i got this model for free from my father.

1. first problem is i dont get how the denon had 85 watts per channel and this unit has 100 watts per channel and it sounds a bit weak to me but ima music producer and i love music to be clean and smooth for the most part its a great receiver but im really heaving doubts about it and its power maybe im doing sum thing wrong in the settings but if anyone could help plz let me know im thinking about trading it for a pioneer elite vsx 26

Thank you for listening to what i have to say

Mfr published power specs can sometimes be as much as 2x higher then their actual benchmark tests would show, although AFAIK Pioneer Elite and Denon specs are generally much closer to their mfr spec ratings then are many mfr's. That said, it sounds like you may be over driving your speakers and may want to consider adding a more powerful external amp.

What speakers are you using? Do you know their effficiency rating? What size room? Do you enjoy your music loud (as many do)?

Both Elite models are 100W models so you don't gain anything in the way of power. If you preferred the sound of the Denon, why not upgrade to a newer Denon AVR?

ok my room isnt that big at alll dont know the size

1.2 yamaha floor standing speakers model numbers are ns-8390

2. 2 bookshelf speakers model numbers is ns-6390

3.1 center channel c-2390

i like to listen to music not loud but with more vocal i let the sub woofer handle most of the bass and the speakers handle about 20 of the bass more vocals on the speakers if you understand what i mean if this helps

Okay ... so your speakers are average efficiency and Yamaha even recommends that a roughly 80W AVR is more than satisfactory with these speakers. Suggest you demo a newer model Denon AVR .... last year's models are on clearance at many stores or review post #2 in the Denon xx12 Owner's thread linked in my sig for more information on the current Denon models.

If you have run the MCAAC EQ setup program and don't like the way it sounds ... then yes as you may prefer the Audyssey EQ program better.

Analog and optical/digital coax are being replaced by HDMI. However, you can add more optical inputs by using one or more optical switches like this one. You can also pick up an older model Denon which will have more optical inputs.

HDMI can handle whatever optical can with equal or better fidelity.
