I have narrowed down my receiver choices to the Integra DTR 80.3, Pioneer Elite SC-77, or Pioneer Elite SC-79. Both offer very similar features, so the deciding factors seem to be:D3 ICE amp (Pioneer Elites) vs A/B amp (Integra)
Ability to control separate crossovers to all speakers (Integra...
I need help deciding between these 2 units. I can get the elite under 2000 and the Yamaha 300 less. Music is more important then movies and my speakers are 6 ohms.
I know they share the same dacs, but is the pioneer better suited for computer audio like HD tracks.
Thanks for the help
Help not sure if I have a problem with my reciever or power conditioner. When I plug my reciever Sc-79 Pioneer into the AV Reciever plug on the back of the htps7000 it blows the fuse on the power conditioner for that plug when I turn on the reciever.
If I plug it into the AMP High Current...
I am looking at these 2 latest receivers from Pioneer and Denon. Which receiver will have a better choice for music as well as movies?
I do listen to a lot of 2 channel SACDs and regular CDs. So which receiver will have a better amp for music?
But once in a while, I do watch movies.
Have a few questions on getting multiple zones up and running with the Pioneer Elite SC-79. As an FYI I have 4 zones in my house - Family Room (Zone 1 - Audio & Video), Living Room (Zone 2 Stereo Audio and Video), Patio (Zone 3 - Stereo Music Only), and Master Bedroom (Zone4 via HDBaseT...
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...
Is anyone still using there SC-09tx ice power amp? I bought the new SC-79 and really like it. My problem is I still can't believe that the sc-79 sounds better or is better the the 09. The 09 is a beast compared to the sc79, I keep thinking I should put the sc09 bank in the system.

I was looking into building a large maybe 25x35+ home theater in my attic with 3 tiered rows(5seats each). A projector screen either 150" or 200"(not sure yet) so my first row would end about 17ft away from the screen then 8ft tier and another 8ft tier. I plan to get a pioneer elite SC-79...
I am trying to choose a new receiver to replace my 10 year old Onkyo.
I can get the Pioneer for $1800 and the Yammy for $2000 from an authorized dealer, but no stores in my area have either one in stock for me to audition. I am also considering the SC-79 ($2500), but It would have to do...
I just purchased a Pioneer SC-79 and have a 5.1 setup.
My front speakers are old NHT VT-2s which have 4 connectors on the back of the speaker.
The original installers ran a cable from each of the 4 connectors and then merged them to plug...
I bought the sc-79 to replace my sc09tx, I am still not sure i want to do that I love the sc-09tx. So far I find it very cheap compared to the sc09tx but considering the price differences I see why. I am finding it hard to decide what one is better. What has more power the sc09 or sc79? Sc09 I...
I just moved into a house with a dedicated theater room. The receiver that is being used to power a 7 speaker setup has a bad hdmi output and will have to be replaced. It is an Onkyo 876 receiver. I am looking at either replacing the receiver or possibly getting an amp and processor if its...
I'm in the process of finishing my basement and have finally gotten my av rack into the new closet I've made for it. I'm now running Cat6 pulls to the other rooms in the house via the attic for the 2nd floor or the basement for the first floor. I figure I'll have about 8 displays in the house...
I sold all my AV equipment when i moved to China. Now that I'm back stateside, i'm looking to rebuild my home entertainment system. I'm open to suggestions as my goal is to build an HTPC system. My main source of music and movies are now on my computer or network attached storage (NAS).
