HA!

The Pioneer VSX-1021-K (one model number higher!) is $10 cheaper at Woot today!

All of you that were sold a bill of goods by that scam artist JP will be bowing before all MY people who got MY offer!

Suckas!

Dang. His goes to eleven.

I'll have to try harder in my schemes for evil.

I think I need more minions. That would be a good start.

I always though that "Minions" would be a good name for a Frito-Lay snack food.

Any general feeling on this receiver? I know it doesn't have Audyssey, but does MCACC have something equivalent to the new fancy features that I can't remember the name of?

It comes with microphone and laptop wielding minions to do that for you.

Ah, I meant Dynamic Volume and Dynamic EQ. I can never remember the differences...

MCACC has served me well over the years, but my next receiver will have Audyssey as I want to give that a whirl. MCACC is a "single sweet spot" type of tool similar to Audyssey, but I want multi-point calibration next time. Of course, it will cost me about 2.5x this receiver's price to get it.

Did some digging, found some info that someone else posted elsewhere (Read: These are someone else's comments from another site)
Quote:
Audyssey - Easy;more of a one shot deal;cannot make certain adjustments afterwards because it adversely affects the filters

MCACC - Initial setup is easy; certain models only take one listening point, as opposed to audysseys 3, 6, or more; once you take your readings, it's highly customizable interface allows for all kinds of tweaking, but you need to read up on it.

YPAO - Simplest of the bunch, I dont know if it applies filters, but it does the chirp thing to set speaker levels and such; was generally commented as the worst of the bunch

Not having used anything but MCACC, I'm satisfied with it. Simple to use with good results.

Yea, I used MCACC as mentioned above. It would do the main setup, but I could tweak it to my liking. Now I am reading that Audyssey (which does a more advanced setup with MultEQ XT for example) doesn't let you tune it afterwards since that will kill their filters..... Wow. So I may end up paying a good chunk of money mainly to get a feature that I might end up turning off???? Wowza. Might need to see about buying from someone with a good return policy.
