This reciever sounds very interesting.
I was all set to buy a Pioneer 1014, but maybe I should reconsider.
The big problem that I would have, is that I would need this puppy to drive some power hungry speakers in a very large room.
Would I be making a huge mistake?
I'm sure that the Pioneer has enough power to power my speakers, but I'm not so sure about these new Digital Recievers, I've heard they are great in medium and small rooms, but I'm not so sure about a really large room.
My room is like 20 x 25 or so.
The 7 Speakers I would be driving would be:
B & W DM602 S3 (mains)
B & W LCR600 S3 (center)
B & W DM600 S3 (for the 4 surrounds)
I don't actually own those speakers right now, but those are the ones I'm planning to get unless I change my mind.
