Also, even if I could get it locally, I would only save $100. The Pio's and 818's features are very similar.

too bad, as you can tell I was very impressed by the 818. Lots of features with more hdmi inputs than I think anyone could ever want.

Hey man, I know you'd set me in the right direction. If I didn't have the Pioneer, and had access to the 818, I would definitely get it.

I'm sure I'll need some help setting up my Pioneer, so don't hold this against me smile.

Say hi to Mojo for me.

An owners thread for the Pioneer Elite SC-65/SC-1527-K has been started on AVS (Cat may like smile ).

Apparently the SC-1527-K is a Future Shop Canada exclusive that is basically identical to the Elite SC-65 without the Elite badge and fancy lights.

I searched for that a few days ago and didn't find it. I see this was created yesterday.

Yeah. It was created in response to a thread with posts by another user and myself. We were seeking information/reviews for the SC-1527-K.

I liked the sound from the Pioneer better than Denon. Can't wait to get the Pioneer 65 model so I can compare it to the Denon 3312ci.

It's ironic you mentioned that, Cat. Reason being is that I came to the forum to inquire about the Pioneer's sound.

My query is this-I just got my new receiver hooked up in my bedroom (this is temporary), and the sound quality is far superior to my previous 3801. I've only watched a couple YouTube news clip video's, but the sound is so much crisper than what I was experiencing with my 3801. Would this be because of a failing receiver which ultimately broke down, processing within my new Pioneer receiver enhancing the audio, or something else?

Thanks.

Pioneer does come with many sound enhancing features, which I always turn off, except just to play with on occasion. I prefer the sound out of the pioneer, so in a case like this, it's like preaching to the choir. I got a lot more bass out of the Pioneer.
