Just received (no pun intended) my new Pioneer reciever from LEconcepts. Wasn't sure whether to go for this or the AX10i, and I can safely say I feel I went for the right decision. It goes VERY loud and music sounds alot better than my old SONY 925. It's breathed new life into my CDs and music DVDs. The remote is big, but has everything there, no flipping down annoying flaps to get to other buttons. The auto calibirate thingy is superb, even the wife was impressed! DVD-audio and SACD sound superb, haven't got a DVDi player yet so unable to test i-link. The USB connection sounds intruiging, just got to get myself a suitable USB cable to test. I use an HT1000 NEC projector with a 10 foot video lead so the audio delay is an absolute godsend, works really well. The only downside is no video upconversion(I knew that before I bought it), so it's to Keene electronics I'll go for that. Overall a great product and definatly warrants the upgrade from my 5 year old receiver.
