My new Pioneer VSX-AX5Ai-S has arrived. First impressions are wow, what a machine. Seriously heavy and well built. Well designed and it will look nice on my AV rack. The rear of the machine is far more user friendly than previous amps I may have owned - it certainly looks like £1K's worth of AV gear. As half way through my house move I have connected my i-pod to it which will not sound great. Sounds fine so far though not quite as smooth as my Denon 2805. Mmmmm, slightly alarming but I will tweak this mother so no worries yet. When sorted I will post some pictures of it in situ and update my opinion on the sound from DVD etc via my 868 (when that arrives too ) Any advice on set up from fellow owners would be welcome. Ta : Cheers, Captain Benefit.
