I have the 1122 dealing with handshaking issues called bb they said they would swap it for the same or another receiver. I was reading reviews and they said that the denon was better out of the two what do you guys think keep the vsx or swap for 1913? Let me know input wanted. Thanks

I would get the Denon 1913 because I like the Audyssey MultEQ room calibration over the Pioneer MCACC. Plus you get a Denon 2 year warranty vs only 1 year on the Pioneer.

Change them back to 80hz and small. What speakers and sub do you have? Don't see it mentioned in this thread.

How does it sound?

For more info on proper Audyssey setup (to include using a camera tripod or mic boom stand), review the Audyssey 101/FAQ Guide linked in my sig.

A little different now as the 606 only uses the lowest version of 2EQ which cannot EQ the subwoofer while the 1913 uses MultEQ which can EQ the subwoofer, so it's even more important to transfer the lower frequencies < 80Hz to the sub.
