    Hi everyone,
    I put down a deposit on a Pioneer AX10 about 3 months ago and have been told I'll be waiting another 4-6 weeks before I get one. Personally I think Pioneer are taking the Pi** with the amount of AX10's currently coming into the country. The only real reason why I chose the AX10 over the Denon A1SR was the MCACC (auto setup). Now due to the wait I was thinking the A1SR Definitely sounds better (according to a lot of you guys on this forum) so if it isn't to hard/complex to setup I might aswel get one. So my question is how hard is the A1SR to setup and use day to day? (my younger brothers will also be using it to watch their simpsons & Friends DVDs - 12&15yrs old:rolleyes:) so hopefully its not to hard to use.

    Cheers

    Hi

    I have the upgraded A1SE. I don´t think they are hard to setup, you need to make sure you have the amp connected to your TV/Projector, so you can use the Onscreen menus. This makes it a lot easier to use.

    Once all your speaker settings, channel delays, levels are balanced, there are various other options for THX Audio, Surround modes etc but all pretty easy to suss out. The manual makes it look daunting and is´nt clear on some things.

    The amp remembers all the surround modes automatically and seperately for each input, even down to a digital or analogue signal which is very useful.

    If you´ve had any experience with other amps then you´ll be ok. If you get stuck with anything just ask on the forums. :)

    Cheers

    Hi
    I have had my denon for 3 weeks now set up is not hard to do on screen displays are easy to follow
    connect all your imputs & outputs first before powering up & then blow your head off the sounds are brill
    I have read the manual bit by bit while playing with the amp so that i can see & hear what each setting does
    I have all 7 speakers in use + 2 subs so the room realy pullsates with sound it hits you like a sea of sound
    it can take weeks to get the amp set to your likeing i am still altering the settings to see if the sound can be improved
    but setting up is part of the fun
    a big bonus is that the amp upconverts S video & compositive to component makeing the pics on my PJ very good even Sky no need for a conversion scart for me
    buy this amp i payed £2100 for uk spec delivered
    P@

    Cheers,

    I'm currently having problems getting a deposit I put down for an Pioneer AX10 back. Apparently "Digital Direct" are under no obligation to refund me my deposit. I thing that's bang out of order as the amp won't even be in stock for another couple of months. Any comments?

    How much is the deposit ? 10% ? See trading standards/CAB etc.

    Hi Flimber,
    The deposit was 20% (£400). I actually spoke to one of the managers there today and managed to get him to agree to credit my debit card back in full (whether he does it or not is another question altogether)

    Regards

    If they are unable to supply the goods within 30 days of your order, unless you have agreed otherwise with them, you are entitled to a full refund of your deposit.

    Here's a link to the Distance Selling regs :

    http://www.hmso.gov.uk/si/si2000/20002334.htm

    Section 19. Performance, is the one to read.

    On a general note, wherever possible, don't use Debit cards for this sort of transaction as it severely limits the protection you receive. Debit cards are for the most part just like handing over cash, credit cards join the credit card company to the transaction and make it much easier to recover the money if a dispute develops.
