I have a Pioneer SC-1522-K receiver that recently died. I bought it last year from Costco for $600, so I am able to return it for a full refund.
What should I replace it with? I don't see my use of it changing in the next 5 years, and don't mind buying another one in 5 years and putting this one somewhere else in the house or selling it.
My requirements are:
7.1 (9.1 preferred)
1 optical-out (preferred, not totally necessary)
Apple AirPlay support
iPhone remote control app
My uses (in order of importance) are:
Loud music multiple times per week
Movies once per week
Video games multiple times per week
TV once per week
What are my best options in the $500-1000 price range?
There are a lot o downs in modern era receivers, I was thinking that Pioneer was one of reliable brands...
So, for the next 5 years I believe there's no other option than Yamaha..., maybe you can search for a Aventage 1020 or 1030, or wait for a 2014 refresh to search for some big deal in 20x0 (9.2)...
