I am wondering if a sc-71 is an upgrade in sound quality from a vsx-1120? does the sc-71 have more volume? Also odes the sc-71 have an On Screen Volume Display when changing the volume?
Thank you for the answers.

It has a better amp section, Class D which is more stable for 4 ohm loads, dual HDMI outputs and 7 HDMI Inputs on the back. I'd take it over the 1120.

The manual can be downloaded here if you need more detail.

I've just read somewhere that the sc-71 does have an on screen volume display. That was one thing I didn't like about the 1120.

Well the 1120 is 4 years old now, eventually they'd figure out people want the on screen display of volume.

Has anyone compared the sc-71 to a denon x2000? I hear the D3 amps are very good for movies, which is what I want. I mainly use my av receiver for TV and movies.
