This is exactly why I haven't posted a full review yet. Everyone wants to jump the gun to be first in line to flame the unwary.
Do the current Pioneer receivers also have a similar amplifier design as the older models in this discussion. Would the results be similar if I buy a new one at Best Buy?
Trackball02,That has been a lot of the discussion of this thread and no-one seems to really know the answer to that question. I have tried but cannot get confirmation one way or the other.I think it is the tricky marketing department at Pioneer using flashy naming architectures.
Ummm, just to pick on you.... Why would a Panasonic tech know anything about a Pioneer product? Freudian slip?
oops, yeah. corrected. I've owned a lot of Panasonic gear.
My question on the Nak was simply because that is what you had mentioned in a previous post. I am excited about the Pioneer and in no way plan on flaming you. I was simply looking to see what you were comparing against.I have Geddes speakers on order and believe the man is intelligent enough to design a good system. If you are in agreement with the OP then all the better.Please let us know your thoughts when you feel it is appropriate.
owner and service manuals can be found at:http://www.hifiengine.com/Looks like the PAC011A amplifier modules are also used in these models:Pioneer VSX-D209Pioneer VSX-D409Pioneer VSX-D414Pioneer VSX-D509Pioneer VSX-D510Pioneer VSX-D511Pioneer VSX-D514Pioneer VSX-D710Pioneer VSX-D712Pioneer VSX-D714Pioneer VSX-D810Pioneer VSX-D811Pioneer VSX-D812Pioneer VSX-D814Pioneer VSX-D912
A very quick update, receiver arrived today and installed tonight. I don't want to draw any conclusions this early, nothings been switched back for comparison, but I gotta say, I'm pretty impressed. Cold out of the box it sounded pretty good, and after a few hours seems to be trouncing my separates in clarity with instruments and voices sounding more real. I have a few reservations and need way more time, but from expecting a cold, lifeless, brittle sound at startup, I'm quite frankly stunned. Certainly worth the $100.
obligatory 'any updates?' poke.
Looking at the 2011 models, the Pioneer VSX-1021, VSX-921, VSX-821, and VSX-521, I cannot find any reference to hybrid amp technology. I assume Pioneer is no longer making amplifiers of this type, is that right?
