Basically its the same Amplifier with different numbers except for the HDMI only having Video capability. That means you can run your Video through the reciever and connect the Optical or Coaxial from the source to the reciever. With the 918 the HDMI does both Video and Audio through the the Reciever. Not sure why the price is so different. Also there may be some suddle differences, but I havn't noticed any.. Good Luck...I just purchased the 918 because my 2 year old Pioneer 816 is having some channel issues.

I am looking to buy the VSX-918V-K. However, My speakers will be the Speaker Company LCR2 and eventually a sub... The LCR speakers are rated at 10-100w...This Pioneer Receiver is rated at 120 watts per channel. It is said that it won't produce 120 watts. Will this hurt my speakers or should I go with the Yammy 463

I wouldn't go with the 463. I have one and can't wait to replace it. It sounds good but it makes the picture darker on HDMI. It looks like the Pioneer VSX-918V will do everything I need with a PS3 and a 5.1 system.

We have a pioneer vsx -818v which we are looking to connect to Collevo touch monitor with HDMI connection, Currently we can't get the setup working. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this may not be occurring.

Appreciate any input as I've got teachers wanting to use wii and xbox 360 in their lessons without the ability right now.

It will only hurt your speakers if you turn the AVR all the way up.

I wonder how many buy a low-end AVR only to find out that it doesn't process HDMI audio, so that they have to run a separate audio cable from each device?

I just can't see buying an AVR that doubles the number of connecting cables. The cost of the extra cables would come close to making up the price difference.
