This should probably be posted in the receiver section but I am used to you guys for my support I plan on upgrading my receiver and speakers soon and am researching which one I should go with. I have read lots of positive comments on the Ascend line of speakers and will probably go that route. I am also considering the Pioneer VSX-D912k (recent Pioneer proponent ) for my receiver. Does anyone have any favorite receivers, preferably under $1,000? Thanks your input.
