Hi, take my comment for what it's worth but I had a 520 and a 921 (I know, not the same) and now have a Denon 2311, and I absolutely thrilled with Audyssey. The details that I was missing before was pretty dramatic. Also, I had issues with HDMI passthrough with my Pio, with the Denon, worked right away, no fuss.
I believe that Pioneer, from what I read (I never noticed as it is of no importance to me) will have a better video processing and the Airplay function as gain some fans.
One feature that I like from my Denon over the Pios is the independant crossover settings. I have towers for fronts and surrounds and I like the ability to set the xover a little lower than 80hz.
Don't get me wrong, I liked my Pioneers, very solid no nonsense receiver but I'm now a Denon "enthusiast" now
