SC-1528K is SC-75 equivalent and not 1523

Is it worth it to upgrade from a Pioneer Elite SC27 to a Pioneer SC1523k?

I only use 1 multizone for the outside speakers and that can be achieved with either receiver..only to play DirecTV football games outside.
5.1 config here, maybe upgrade to 7.1 "one day".
Dont really stream music as I use a portable bluetooth speaker.

The 1523k is in route to me now from Amazon for $799.
Money isn't the issue.

Im sure I can sell my mint SC27 box and all for $500-$600 and recoup some money.....but is it worth it to even bother with this "upgrade"???

David Susilo is actually quiet and expert on all model numbers and upgrade path. I migrated from Marantz 7007 to SC-1528K/SC-75 and biggest difference I found was the sound separation in all speakers. So, it was in a way upgrade as Marantz did not separate all channels so much

Anyone know where a NIB, deeply discounted, from authorized dealer SC-79 can be had?

The SC-1523 is the equivalent of the SC-75. I haven´t even heard of the existence of the SC-1528 you mentioned, must be a canadian model or something.

Question:

Can you actually make heights and wides play simultaneously on SC-75-77-79 with the 7.1ch FH/FW + Zone 2 set up (no Surround Backs)? Anyone has tried this option?

Thanks!

I think it has been mentioned before that the SC-1528-K is a Future Shop (in Canada) exclusive model. I believe it and the SC-1523-K are the equivalent of each other as well as the SC-75. It looks like both the SC-1528-K and SC-75 have a 2 year warranty, where the
SC-1523-K only has one. The SC-1523-K also shows a shorter depth dimension of 15.56" on both the Pioneer website and the Product Sheet, but shows the same 17.36" depth as the
SC-1523-K and SC-77 on the Specifications page of the Operating Instructions.

did you read your manual?

SC-79 - pg 21 for 7.2 FW/FH & Zone 2:

quote

"It is not possible to produce sound simultaneously from the front height speakers and the front wide speakers."

nothing's changed in every Pioneer 9 ch model since the SC-57/55 generation - it's one or the other but not both. there is no option or speaker configuration that will do both whether it's the 9.2 or the 7.2 configuration. the manual clearly states this.

and this isn't ambiguously written.
