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.

I just finished reading the entire thread and it was packed full of helpful information! Thank you to everyone in here who has contributed! I've been getting into home theater and audio for the last couple years but I feel very much like a novice. Most of my equipment was gifted to me (very kind and very wealthy brother-in-law). My current setup is listed at the bottom.

I have a couple things that I'd like some help with:

1)My fronts and center all have separate LFE inputs as well as my sub. I'm running Sub 1 out to my Martin Logan, and then using a Y cable to split the Sub 2 out to the fronts. Then in my settings I have all my speakers set to small. I need some confirmation that this configuration makes sense and is making good use of my system. (until recently I had fronts/center set to large. I'm SO glad this thread suggested changing them because it sounds much better now!)

2)My second question is in regards to the center speaker LFE. Someone from Magnolia suggested going from the Center pre-out to the center LFE. The advice I get from BB tends to be hit or miss so I'm sure someone here has better insight. Along those lines, is it possible (although not reasonable) to hook up the pre-outs to an amp for a set of fronts (for example) while also using the SC to power a separate set of fronts, or is the SC exclusive between where its sending the signal?

Thanks for all the helpful posts in here! I'm sure I will have more questions in the future so this won't be the last time you hear from me!

My Setup:
Pioneer Elite SC-75
2 Def Tech BP-8080 Front
1 Def Tech CS-8060 Center
2 Def Tech SR-8040 Surround
2 Rebuilt Dalquist DQ-20 used as Surround Back (Inherited these. In amazing shape for their age)
1 Martin Logan Dynamo 700 Subwoofer

PS3
TIVO Premier
Logitech Harmony 900
Monster Stage 3 Power conditioner

Optoma HD131Xe Projector onto Carl's ProGrey Screen (about 145" diag)

Why do you want to "upgrade"? Is there some feature the 1523k has that you need? If not then i wouldn't get rid of the SC27. Can't beat those ICE amps.

Sure the ICE amps of the SC27 were sweet, but who the hell can notice the difference from ICE to D3

Technology changes and so do I. Sold the SC27 for a reasonable price & picked up the 1523 for only $799 brand new.

Yeah maby some wouldn't be able to tell the difference, but the point i was making was that those amps were very good and got top reviews from everywhere. You don't need to get the 1523k. I was only making a suggestion. Funny you say technology changes but you mentioned you wouldn't be using any new feature of the 1523. And you're wondering what's so different about the Class D ICE amps and D3. Anyway it looks like you made up your mind a long time ago.
