Certainly but with the consensus that the 1015 is the same as the 52 it puts it into the same price as the 2805 while the Onkyo is more pricey.
While I certainly respect your right to you own opinion, it does seem somewhat inflammatory to post negative comments on a board where the Pioneer 1014/1015's are highly regarded. Especially in light of the fact that you are stating that the 1015 can't measure up to receivers that are 2 or 2 1/2 times the price (Current J&R pricing 1015 - $450, 2805 - $899, 901 - $1251).
Again, based on current pricing, it does not seem to be a fair comparison. I recently purchased the 1015 to be used almost exclusively for TV/movies/Xbox. I'm very happy with my decision. If you don't care for the 1015 I respect your opinion, but it just seems a little strange that you are making the comparison that you are and then degrading the 1015 based on it's performance.
