Question Pioneer Owners SC-LX701 or VSX-LX503


Novice Member
These 2 models are close on price now with LX701 reductions and I wondered if there are any significant differences between them

As I'm thinking of using them as 5.1 preamps the power amp stage won't be significant for me if that's the main difference. I think MCACC Pro vs MCACC is another difference but maybe that's not a major consideration with a 5.1 setup?

As the LX503 is the newer model I'm guessing that maybe more up to date connectivity and standardswise (DV HDR etc) but perhaps the LX701 has kept pace with updates?

Thoughts appreciated.
