- EQ/control of two individual subs
- ability to easily run 4ohm speakers (currently considering LS-50's)
- very clean, balanced sound quality (much more important than loud volume)
- 4K/UHD support not a priority (not considering UHD until it can match the pq of the 65VT60)
- 3D capable
- don't need Airplay (have an AppleTV)
The two (currently on close out sale prices) receivers that have caught my eye are the Pioneer SC-63 and Denon 2313CI.
Any thoughts? Considering my priorities is there another receiver in the $500-$650 range I should look at?
That is the two I was deciding between as well but I found a Pioneer SC-63 at my local Best Buy that was in their Magnolia room and got them to sell it to me for $425 perfect condition, just missing the remote so ended up going that route as that is even cheaper then the Denon refurbed
In general how do the Pioneer Elite series compare to the comparably priced/positioned Denons? I'm currently reading up on threads comparing Audessy to MCAAC, so my question is really about other aspects of the receivers ... (Bad experiences w/ Onkyo so avoiding them.)
Sounds like driving the 4-ohm speakers is one of the primary issues ... is there a Denon receiver that would handle them ok?
Also, further research indicated that the Pioneers don't have an equivalent of Dynamic EQ. Is this true? Medium/moderate volume levels comprises 90% of my listening (after the little ones have gone to bed).
In general, are the amps in the Pioneer Elite series considered a significant step up from the Denon's? Are there any other AVR's I should be looking at?
For driving 4-ohm speakers are there any AVRs, besides the Pioneer Elites, that I should be looking at?
