Well, I've made a personal decision that I want Pioneer's MCACC.

Base model to have pre outs is the sc-61. Listed for $1399. I already had an offer from a local store for $980.

Once I get word whether this is happening or not, I'm going to begin selling all my speakers and equipment, work some overtime and purchase the amp before the Axioms even arrive.

My minds made up. I know I'll be happy with it. Thank you to all. This thread is still opening my mind to great ideas. I can't thank you enough.

Now I'm trying to research this whole center channel thing.

So far, future system will be

Pioneer sc-61
2 M80's
1 Vp160
2 QS8
1 EP800
PS3
Oppo bdp-103

But right now, debating on the center channel...
