OK. I just pre-ordered a 1016 after much internal debate as to getting the 1015 or 1016.
Currently finishing my basement and building a FP non-dedicated theater.
Sanyo PLV-Z4, Oppo 91, DaLite 92" HCCV Perm-wall, Proficient Audio LCR In-ceiling surround and rear, Acoustic Energy Aegis 3 L, R, and center, Velodyne Sub.
I also have a Media Center PC and SA 8300HD box.
I have HDMI and Component (1x each) running from the equip to the proj.
I loved the idea of the 1015 being MOSFET, but I will need HDMI switching. So, my choices were get the 1015 and a Monoprice HDMI switch or get the 1016.
I went back and forth for months..... and finally decided that I'm not enough of an Audiophile to realize the diff between the bipolar amp and the MOSFET.
So, I pre-ordered the 1016. I figure it's still their top of the line non-Elite receiver so it shouldn't be a POS and am hoping I am very happy with it.
Any comments? People who would have done the same? Different?
Oh, also, I know street pricing is a no-no, but the best I found the 1015 for was $415 shipped and the 1016 was $499 shipped. So $84 more.
