I wanting to purchase a Pioneer Elite 36TX reciever and was wondering if it is possible to by pass the front left and right channel amp and use an external amp. I have a McIntosh MC2200 that I really like for music.
Would you buy the unit again? I have looked around at different units and listen to them but it is always in the store. I would love to bring a few different brands of reciever home and spend the day listening to each one. However, I haven't found a store (within my price range) that will do this. I have owned other Pioneer equipment and I have never been displeased so that is what I basing some of my decision on.
I heard a couple of denon (sound thin), yamahas (bright, lousy remotes, fixed crossover points), and I still prefer the pioneers (hey, my opinion ). IÂ´d love to get my hands in a new 47tx, but ItÂ´s hard to find elites down here at a reasonable price. If you have the means, go for the new elites, I heard great stuff about the new MACC system.
Pioneer Elite makes very good stuff. I got my sister the 35TX and am quite impressed with it. At least for a receiver. Good features, plenty of hookups, and pretty decent sound. Can't match the sound of separates, but then again no receiver can. So I would definitely recommend the Elite series. The only "drawback" that I can think of is the plastic face. Looks very nice but I'm used to aluminum faceplates.
