Denon's AVR 3313 has Audyssey XT, which equalizes all speakers over their full frequency ranges. Pioneer's MCACC does not equalize the lowest frequencies or the subwoofer. (But separate subwoofer equalization devices are available from other companies.) If you can delay your purchase for a month or so, you might want to consider Denon's recently announced X4000 receiver. It replaces the 3313 at a comparable price and should be available soon. It includes the highest grade of Audyssey, XT 32. Of course, pricing for the now discontinued 3313 is decreasing, too.
Don't forget that to get the best pricing you have to call an authorized dealer on the phone (or visit in person). Denon's authorized dealers are only allowed to publicize MSRP, and Denon is extremely reluctant to honor the warranty if a receiver is purchased from an unauthorized dealer.
