    I'm thinking of upgrading my Pioneer VSA-E06 to the Pioneer VSX-2014i. I've had my old amp for about 7 yrs and am still very happy with it. I like the sound of the amp for both music and movies. But want DTS, DPL-II and stuff like that.
    Will the sound be pretty similar between the 2 amps? They are both THX approved. I know this probably doesn't mean too much these days.
    But write to ask people's opinions and experiences with these amps. Or other recommendations.
    Thanks for any help.

    I have the 2014i and it's a great amp. :thumbsup: You get everything that the ax5ai offers but for about £300 cheaper and less the air studio tune but thats minor. The iLink is great with my 868 and I can highly recomend this Amp.

    That's great. Thanks for your opinion. Do you know if there is an older model of the VSX-2014i-s. Which would be VSX-2014-S. Because I've seen a site doing an excellent price, but it doesn't state VSX-2014i. I take the "i" to mean an i-link model? I think it is the same model but they have mis-listed it.

    I believe that the VSX-2014i was a replacement for the AX3. I'm not aware of there having been a previous Pioneer model also numbered 2014, so you're probably correct that the item you've seen is the same model.

    Pixmania £576 delivered. Thought that was good.
