HI, I recently decided to start upgrading my hifi seperates and bought a Pioneer vsx-c502. So far I've got it connected to my PS2 for dvd/cd's. I'm running a pair of Mission 701 speakers with a Gale 3070 sub. I was initially disappointed with the lack of adjustment to music with the Pioneer but I find that cd's sound clear and defined which is great but I expected more for the money. What I need to know is: Is the pioneer amp any good, or are there better for the price? Are there better amps for playing dvd and cd's at the same price or less? What centre/surround speakers will match my mission speakers? Or am I better off starting fresh? Sorry, I know there's plenty of Q's but just need some guidance. Cheers all.
