Ok, so I've I recently put together a modest 3.0 system consisting of two Polk Audio Tsi300 and a CS10. I'm currently using the Pioneer VSX-1022-K. So far, things sound fine but a couple of things concern me.
I have tried everything to get the MCACC to work but it just won't. I can't even get to the menu screen to initiate setup. Now, I realize with a 3.0 system I can live without MCACC setup but I'd like to at least be able to get it to work for when I do add speakers in the near future. The unit also stands a bit tall and the top is quite close to the bottom of my cabinet. This hasn't been an issue so far but, but I can imagine it could be with more speakers (with adjusted levels).
I've done some research on the Denon AVR1713 and it seems like the replacement I've initially always wanted (5.1, 2 zone, front HDMI, under 6" tall).
Is the Denon a good alternative to my current system, or should I just get a replacement for my 1022. I love the way it sounds and looks but, like I've said, it does have a few issues that cause me pause.
