Pioneer Elite SC-61 or Pioneer Elite vsx-60? They are about $250 in difference. I'm not very up to date on receivers so just wondering is the SC-61 worth the addtional $250?

SC61 since it has the D3 amps and certified 4 ohm compatibility. And whether a Denon is better or not depends on your preferences.

Some here think Audyssey is the ONLY room correction software that is any good since it EQs the sub.

There are of course many that like MCACC from Pioneer for its tweakability and customization options. Only you will know what you like in your room.

The EMs aren't that hard to drive at 6 ohms but if you are concerned I'd use the Pioneer with the Class D amps.

Having said that, I recently had a Yamaha A3000 which handled my decidedly tricky to drive Apogee Stages just fine and was found by Audioholics to produce more real world power than one of Emotiva's dedicated multichannel amps.

The bigger Onkyos and Anthems wouldn't have any trouble either.

For RoomEq Audyssey XT32 (not XT) or Anthem ARC seem to have the high ground.
