Have noticed on the pioneer site a new AV amp is about to come out ASA-AX10i-s.

Is it worth waiting for this amp and would the price be worth the extra for what you are getting compeared to the ASA-AX10i.

Does anyone know how much this new amp cost's?
It Weighs nearly 5kg more than old amp and what difference does the iron base plate make rather than just adding addtional weight?:eek:

Fascinating....most of the high end companies try to avoid large ferromagnetic lumps anywhere near the chassis,other than power transformers.

That seems a bit extravegant for just an iron plate attached to the under carriage there must be some benefit!!:lesson:

This has been on the web site for over 5 months and according to AVLAND a while ago may never appear in the UK.
Some items only ever appear in Japan.

I was going to wait, but you can sometimes wait forever.

Edit : Sorry, just spotted the new thread, unfortunately I can not get into AVLAND's website from my broadband/ADSL.
The last time I checked the AX10Ai at AVLAND I thought it had was 200W, not 170W.
At least WM9 handling+PLIIx is included, mind you the denon A1SRA had PLIIx in January.

Steve.:D

They're late in Europe, the American 59TXi was out in January too (as was the Yamaha Z9, imo the best of the three).

Ettepet,
At the risk of taking this off topic I thought I'd carry on !

My A1SRA has been running since 7th Feb, only one irritating thing was that I had to order it and by the time it had arrived it had reduced by £100, but sevenoaks still charged me the January price. It's even more reasonably priced now.

I agree the yamaha Z9 sounds superb and has great on-screen operation, but it's ugly, very ugly, and costs over £1000 more.

All Yamaha kit is cosmetically challenged. An acquired taste I'd say.

But they do sound very good :)

Your right, although I prefer it to the looks of the Sony TA-DA 9000 ES that's supposedly a better integrated amp.

When I bought my Pioneer I didn't think much of the way it looked, but now I prefer its looks to any other integrated out there. It's a beauty, sitting there on top of my 200-disc CD-player!! :D :clap:

I am the proud owner of a Z9, but it's hidden in the cupboard to I don't have to look at it!

If money was no object I'd go for the Yamaha DSP-Z9 despite the looks, but given its close to £3k, compared with £2k for the Pioneer then the Pioneer wins.
