What would also be nice (and is missing from the SC-68) is a video select feature that would allow the user to select a different video source for a given audio input. For instance, listening to a CD, while watching TV or reviewing photographs. In the past, Pioneer has offered the "video select" feature. I also wished they offered a sound field selector knob on the front panel as was done on the VSX-49tx and VSX-59txi. Also holding out for digital inputs converted into analog secondary zones, but I seriously doubt that's ever going to happen.
Hope someone gets the SC-79 soon, and reviews it here.
