Looking to upgrade my receiver to get into this generation of HDMI inputs, 3D capabilities, and 4K upscaling.

I've been doing a lot of research on prices etc and found some models I'm pretty interested in that suit my needs, mainly the Pioneer Elite VSX-70 and the Sony STRDN 1040. The Sony it seems has more bells and whistles but that doesn't mean anything to me as the Pioneer seems to have most of the same stuff, minus bluetooth I believe.  I haven't been able to hear either one and I can get both for around the same price as an Open Box item at a local best Buy. Does anyone have experience with either of these two models to compare? any info would be helpful. Thanks!

Don't worry about hearing them. They will sound the same. The Pioneer has better build quality and a better reputation for reliability.
