Best 11.2 or Atmos 7.1.4 Receiver?

I can't really tell if this has been answered yet. I've been looking at getting a new receiver upgrading from my Pioneer Elite SC-37. I want one that can power 11.2 or the full 7.1.4 channels for full Atmos support without needing any other amps. I've been looking mostly at the Pioneer SC-LX901 but I wanted to see what everyone else thought. Am I missing a Gem? I know the Onkyo TX-RZ3100 is it's sister receiver and is THX but I don't like Onkyo but I don't know if that maters any more. Anyway thoughts ideas?

Thanks everyone in advance.

I'm in love with Onkyo.
7.2.4 is a must with the new Atmos.

So I like the features of the Onkyo and the Pioneer but as far as I can tell feature wise and function wise the Onkyo is the better choice. The amps I think are the same between the Onkyo and Pioneer, the Denon I'm not sure about because it has a lot of weird features I won't use.

I am thinking about going with the Onkyo.

I have chosen to go with the Onkyo PR-RZ5100. Figure I would just leave this off here so people would know. I'm going with NU4-6000 to power my main channels and a NU3000DSP for my subs.

I'd also look at the new NAD receivers when they come out, and the Dirac FW is released

So cost was a major part of my process as well. I found that the Onkyo with the 3 NU4-6000s and 1 NU3000DSP ran me about $2200 total!

Do you have the 1120? I've already purchased my 5100 but considering your in Chicago. Have you come to any of the GTGs before at Mikes place?
