I just saw this on Pioneer's site today:

http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/PU...H-K.Kuro?tab=D


This doesn't seem to fit in the line at all. It is like a VSX-919 on steroids.


Only 3HDMI inputs...

Full S-Video inputs...

12 Volt Trigger...

140Wx7 power

More Digital audio inputs...


It says normally $900 marked down to $499?


Is this something from another market that they are trying to sell in the USA?


It says it is a promotional price, with less than 100 in inventory...


Here are the specifications:

I agree. The Pioneer VSX-9130THX-K sure looks like a re-branded version of the 03TXH to me.

I first heard of this "new" model last month on Pioneer's Canadian website. Now it appears on the US website in limited quantities. I just figured it was Pioneer's way to sell off "old" stock in a new market niche.

Would be interested in info on this model from anyone in the know.
