    Anyone know if Pioneer have any more products on the way featuring their iLink system? I'd love to be able to afford the 757Ai and the big Pioneer amp (AX10i?) but that dream pairing is a little rich for my current means.

    Not really an expert in the field but I would have thought, in time, all AV electronics will be connected by firewire (iLink). Maybe next year iLink will be available on the replacement for the 2011 - which is kind of depressing as I haven't even received mine yet

    Dazed: It's funny you should say this as I heard EXACTLY the same
    thing from my local HC specialist here in Bangor. That was why I made
    my original post. I'm trying to corroborate the rumour. :)

    You can bet your bottom Yen that Pioneer will have iLink on the replacement for the 2011 and 1011 amps plus on the 656 DVD player's replacement.

    I must admit, I'm in a similar quandry. It'd be the ultimate set-up before getting into realms of madness money.

    Yep I have excepted that unless i get a lottery win I could never justify spending £4k+ on pre/power amplification alone... this little combo would more than compensate for that realisation though!:devil:

    A big HI! to James45's grandparents. :)

    Are they called Iris & Jim? If so, i'm having a very weird online
    experience!

    Just read on the Sony Europe site (link in the new Sony amp thread) that Sony are putting iLink into their new Top end AV amps & DVD players- looks like the beginning of a trend here methinks & a good idea too if they have connection to PC's for HC automation in mind.
