Yes is it better than the Pioneer 1021 but you can also do better on the pricing for the Denon. Call the folks at the AVS Store or Electronics Expo. There is a tab at the top of the page.

I would never spend $549 on the Pioneer 1021 when it can be had for much, much less.

Newegg usually have the Pio 1021 for $299. I paid $399 for my Denon 2112.

I've made phone calls for the last day but they will only price match the lowest price avail and the lowest price I can find new from an authorized dealer is 549. So instead of telling me you were quoted from an authorized dealer for 449 how bout a little help and tell me the dealer who quoted you. and I know that the pioneer can be found for a lot less then the 549 I was just asking if it was close in quality to the 2112?And afrogt take it easy with the caps your not impressing anyone

Unless you're calling from one of the 7 states they charge tax in, EE has been selling at the price quoted in post #5 since it was first released (and I just confirmed again for the umpteenth time a few minutes ago). Call again and mention you saw them listed on AVS Forum.
