I've almost definately decided upon buying a new Pioneer AX3 - ( Denon 3803 is also a possibility but leaning towards the AX3 at the moment) - but concerned about people's views about there being quite a cut in quality of the internals of the AX3 compared with that of the AX5 and the older 2011. Now I've done tonnes of forum research across both this forum and the avsforums, for that one under the US name of 53TX and 55TX and still haven't really come to a conclusion. Just wonder what peoples honest opinions are to which of the following is potentially true: (1) AX3 is very similar internally to AX5 but with less features (like loss of ILInK, USB etc) OR (2) AX3 is the above - and also the circuitry/amplifiers etc are of not so good quality of the AX5. Anyone done an A to B test ? I'm going to try and get a demo of an AX3 this week - but most places can't seem to bothered to setup any AV amp to do a demo which is rather frustrating, let alone setup so I can do an AX3, AX5 vs 3803 test. Thanks for any help, Mark.
