Denon X3200W vs Pioneer SC-91
Currently have the Pioneer Elite SC-91, been playing with it for 2 days - but per a few recommendations from this forum, I am considering a Denon. I am coming from an X1100W which crapped out and rubbed me the wrong way, but in terms of comparison for my current SC-91, something like the X3200W would offer more features (DTS:X and Audyssey vs MCACC) for the same price.
How do you guys think these would compare in terms of sound quality/clarity? I should note that I don't realistically have plans to tear up my walls for speaker additions beyond my current 5.1, so are these AVRs even worth the premium over something like an X1200W? Would I get any sort of benefit from a DTS:X/Atmos decoding receiver with only a 5.1 setup and normal speakers/sub?
Unless I just can't figure it out, the SC-91 doesn't seem to support each input having its own individual audio/ch level settings, where my X1100W (and I assume the new Denons) did. That does also contribute to the Denon consideration as I tend to want different sound from my BD and SAT/CAB inputs...
TLDR: In a strictly 5.1 setup, SC-91 vs X3200W vs X2200W vs X1200W vs [your suggestion], prefer Denon AVRs ability to have audio/ch level settings per each input, where Pioneer seems global only.
