The x3300 has a much better...

The x3200W does not have XT32, Sub EQ HT and will not get the Dolby Vision update.

But you got a very good price on your x3200, so none of that may matter.

So you want the Pioneer logo on everything? It's not like your speakers sound better because you have a Pioneer AVR vs another brand.

Very true, but the A860 is essentially the same as the 781/7810 so I wouldn't be worried.

Surprised you even found a x3200. They've be cleared out for quite some time. Nice price.

I also remember you saying you'd never buy a Denon. What changed?

How many receivers do you have now?

The Marantz 6010 and Denon x4200 can be expanded to 9 channels with an external amp. So you could do 7.1.2 or 5.1.4 on those models.

pressed the game surround mode on my Denon. Sounds like an echo chamber. Ugh.

Is that a good thing for gamers? Serious question as I'm not a gamer.
