wow... well, I think I would have done the same if I had all those issues with multiple receivers. Good luck with the x4000! If I made the jump from Pioneer it would be to Denon for sure.
PS: the network thing might have been a mac address issue.. setting a static IP on a different address from the old sc-71 might have fixed that. but the MCACC issues - sounds like another bad unit maybe. I have had different mic placement change the outcome of MCACC drastically. I now use a mini tri-pod and put it on two pillows on the couch right in the sweet spot (kind of where my head/heck would be if I was slouching). We have a floor lamp also that if i had it in a certain spot one of the rear channels would show as being out of phase.. so I remove that from the room before running it. Weird stuff.
Here's hoping all of us who bought these online don't have issues. we're pretty much screwed if we do.
