I just saw this on Pioneer's site today:


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.
