    Hello, The SC-68 is my first and only experience with a HDMI receiver. Scrolling through inputs on the SC-68 seems nearly instantaneous from the front panel. Getting the actual audio and video is another matter. Is the 5 second delay when switching between HDMI inputs on the SC-68 normal...

    Looking for the best Amp on an Elite receiver. As far as I know SC-79/77 haven't changed much in amp section vs. SC-68/67... any exact differences in Amp section between SC-79, 77, 68, and 67? The THX Ultra must have better amp, no? I am trying to drive B&W 805 series speakers, XTC center, M1...

    Hello All, I'm searching for new front left and right speakers that would be a good match for the SC-68. Has anyone done any speaker experimentation with the SC-68 and could recommend a good match. I am considering a pair of Totem "The One" speakers, but wonder if they might be too detailed...

    Hey Guys I need help with finding the best Sub I can get for little money I have. I've Pioneer SC-68 receiver and primary use for me is watching movies and listening to music. I currently have Deftech Prosub-100 and I'm not happy with it. It is not producing enough base for my music though...

    Yesterday, I was listening to my 4K tv with the sound coming from my sc 68. During the movie, received through the 4K hard drive, the receiver clicked (audibly heard) and shut off by itself. When I pushed the power button, the movie continued from where it was before. What is going on? Has...

    Hello all, I have been a long time Denon supporter, and have had Denons for about the last 20 or so years. (since the AVP-8000 days) I am in the market to upgrade from an existing AVR-4308CI in a dedicated 5370 cu ft theater with a M&K / Miller & Kreisel 4ohm S-150 7.1 configuration. Used...

    I am looking to upgrade my current speaker setup in my home theater. I just recently purchased a Pioneer Elite SC-68 receiver and have been looking at the SVS Ultra Series and the Golden Ear Triton Two Series. I will be replacing a set of Emotiva ERT-8.3 mains, an ERM-6.3 center, ERD-1...
  11. Remote Control Area
    Hi, Has anyone used the harmony Ultimate Remote to control the SC-68? The SC-68 has 4 zones (Two digital/HDMI zones, and two Component/RCA-speaker/Analog zones)? Any ideas about how to go about this?
  12. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    Does anyone have any experience with Pioneer's latest Elite line? I have read through some of the forums related to its over-all performance on calibration, video processing, AirPlay, etc...(mostly very good reviews) but I am curious about the Amp itself. I have never heard the old Class D...

    I will soon have one and haven't seen much traffic here for it. Is that a good sign, or a bad one!? http://www.pioneerusa.com/PUSA/Home/AV-Receivers/Pioneer+Receivers/SC-1222-K
  14. Receivers, Amps, and Processors
    And why? I personally feel these two are a toss up... I'm looking for a steady 4ohm amp section, which looks like the Pioneer might have the edge. However, the Denon has Audyssey XT32 which seems to be preferred over Pio's MCACC. Anyone else have any pluses or minuses between these two AVR's...

    I currently have a Yamaha z7 and have been very happy with it. However as we all I get I have acquired the upgrade bug. I want 9.1 so I am going to decide between those. Had a demon 4310 for a week and returned it cause I hated its interface. Never owned a pioneer elite but have heard wonderful...

    I waited several days for a few new owners posting in the SC-57 thread to start this but no one has yet to take the hint Since several threads are floating about asking about the new models, it's time to collect that interest in one thread going forward So I'm starting it... HiFiFun has an...
