I currently own the Pioneer 1019 and have not been impressed with it since I bought it. I am looking to upgrade my avr to something I can have and not worry about upgrading a few years down the road. I have read nothing but good reviews about the Denon x4000, so I went to Magnolia and listened to it and liked it and listened to it next to the Marantz 7008 and I could not really hear a difference.....well in my opinion.
I was wondering if anyone could recommend another receiver to go listen to.
I am currently running 7.1 with Yamaha NS series fronts, surrounds, backs, and PA120 as my sub. I am looking for a receiver that will last for years and be ready for a speaker upgrade when the time comes. Basically the best sounding receiver within a budget of $1,500 or less and using the Audyssey MultEQ XT32.
Anyone has any experience with one, other or both?
Thanks in advance,
