thnx

Hey, how did you know about the 1017? Do you have a link? Would love to read up on this. Hope Pioneer goes back to the mosfets rather than the bi-polar transistors with respect to the 1017.

These were announced at CES 2007. Here is a link from audioholics.

Due in June at an unspecified price, the VSX-1017 adds 7x130-watt Direct

Energy amp, THX Select2 processing and certification, and such features as iPod

connectivity. Through an optional iPod dock/recharger from Pioneer, the

receiver reproduces iPod music files, displays iPod menus and metadata on a

connected TV screen, and controls iPods through the receiver's supplied

remote.

Pioneer: In launching four new receivers, Pioneer

plans to unveil what could be the industry's first three receivers with dual

XM/Sirius-ready capability. The company will also bring down the price of

1,080p passthrough capability to a suggested $399.


The XM/Sirius-ready receivers are due in the spring starting at a

suggested $299 and feature Neural Surround decoding to reproduce XM's

Neural-encoded channels in discrete 5.1-channel surround sound.


Pioneer also plans to supply the optional SiriusConnect tuner/antenna

combination at a suggested $49 and XM tuner/antenna combination at $59. The XM

model features pull-out 9-volt-battery-size minituner that can be removed and

placed in a car docking kit. The former is due in May; the latter's ship date

was unavailable.


When a satellite tuner/antenna is connected, the receivers control

satellite channel selection through their supplied remote and front-panel

controls, and they display the satellite broadcasters' metadata on onscreen

displays and on their front-panel displays.


The trio of satellite-ready receivers starts with the $299-suggested

VSX-817, a 7x110-watt model with automatic room equalization, front-panel

miniplug input to connect all types of portable digital audio players, and

Sound Retriever DSP to enhance the quality of compressed-music files to near-CD

quality, the company said.


The step-up $399-suggested VSX-917, also due in April, adds such

features as 1,080p HDMI passthrough, more connections and LCD preset

remote.


Due in June at an unspecified price, the VSX-1017 adds 7x130-watt Direct

Energy amp, THX Select2 processing and certification, and such features as iPod

connectivity. Through an optional iPod dock/recharger from Pioneer, the

receiver reproduces iPod music files, displays iPod menus and metadata on a

connected TV screen, and controls iPods through the receiver's supplied

remote.


All four new models, including the $199-suggested VSX-517 5x110-watt

receiver, feature updated proprietary Front Stage Surround processing, which

delivers 5.1-channel surround when the surround speakers are placed up front.

Unlike previous versions, the new version uses more DSP and is less reliant on

sound reflected off side walls. They also feature Windows Media Audio 9

decoding.

According to the info available for the 1017 now, I'm not sure whats the big difference between the 1016 and the 1017. For example, the 917 will add HDMI vid pass though to the 915 but what significant feature does the 1017 add to the 1016? I guess we'll have to wait and see. If you need a receiver soon I would definitely go for the 1016 but if you have the patience why not wait for the 1017 to come out.

Unlike regular Bi-Polar transistors, Pioneer's exclusive Advanced Direct Energy (A.D.E.) MOSFET produces an amazingly efficient, high-end sound quality with equally amplified power for each channel, to ensure consistent sound quality for multi-channel applications.


This highly advanced circuitry is designed to offer high stability combined with low energy loss and ultra linear amplification. A new AC/DC isolated amplifier module - designed especially to optimise the A.D.E MOSFET performance under any condition - combined with the built-in temperature adjustment of the bias circuitry, regulates the drift of the bias point and minimises power imbalances that can cause distorion in the sound stage.

anyway,

zoro


if you have a HDMI device which outputs LPCM audio, you may want to consider other receivers which will amplify the incoming HDMI audio

From these links it's seems like it's Sirius Sat Radio & 20w/channel.


Given a 1016 goes on sale for $399 regularly it should be a nice deal when the 1017 comes out.

I think the 1016 is woefully unique in this respect... most other HDMI receivers will at least amplify (if not apply BM/TA or other processing to) incoming multichannel LPCM on the HDMI.


AFAIK this includes the current Elite line (perhaps some owners can confirm this)

zoro (or anybody in the know), would bi-amping with the 81txv (or higher) be better for my speakers (Energy RC-30's they have bi-amp ability) than just using 2 channels?


I don't plan on going with 7.1 and would like to use the extra channels for that if it would make a difference.

I have my Energy speakers bi-amped and notice little difference. Some people say they hear a difference, many argue it doesn't make any difference. I can't tell much, if any, difference but have left the speakers bi-amped because I might as well use the other channels for something!!
