Haven't looked to compare the VSX-1124 and VSX-80 yet but if you know the differences, maybe you could share... is it only the class of amp that is different?Quote:

The 1124 and Elite VSX-80 come with Sabre Dacs and the new subwoofer eq, for only $599/$700 msrp. Not bad.

What happened to the D3 amps and 4ohm support?

I just bought the SC-1523-K when it was on sale on Amazon for $850. I like it and got it because of the SABER 32 DAC's at this price point. However I wish it was able to EQ the sub like these new models. Anyone think a software update for the 2013 models will include this highly desired feature? I can't imagine why a hardware change would be required to allow for EQ'ing the freq below 63khz. Anyone else wishing the same?

You'd think at the at the very least they would include sub EQ'ing on all 2013 models that have the same chips as the 2014 lineup. Simply because the competition can and its not all that difficult to program it in. Even put in a by-passing the EQ for freq below 63 kHz. I really don't think we are asking too much.

Oh I know. But I'm still holding out hope. Also Pioneer just released iControl5 for your iphone and ipad so you can control A/V receivers, new and old. Checkout the compatibility list below. So that brings the temp in hell down a just a bit. They also put in Built-In AVNavigator too. So you can really just use your web browser to setup. I know its wishful thinking but I can't imagine that the chips inside the sc-1523-k are all that different in the new 2014 a/v chips. They both have the same DSP Texas Instruments Aureus chips too.
