    Does anyone know anything about this new model? It seems to be quite hard to find out much about it and I thought it was suppoesed to be due out anytime now? I particularly want to know where it fits into the range and its dimensions as the little bit I have seen suggest it is more like an improvement on the 912, rather than a new version of the AX3 (remembering that the AX3 replaced the 1011).

    Is that a DAB digital tuner?

    Techtronics have it listed for £459.99 here

    Is this the replacement for the AX3?

    The prices look very keen, almost half the list price of their replacements.

    Things I've managed to find about the VSX-1014 are a Hi Res Photo from here and the manual in Italian, French & Dutch no English version that I've managed to find yet.

    After looking at these specs I do not believe that the 1014 is a replacement for the AX3. One of the most important aspects of the amp - the digital engine - is half as powerful on the 1014 compared with the AX3. The digital engine in the 1014 consists of 1 x motorola 48 bit processor the AX3 has 2 of these processors.

    The 1014 appears to be bridging the previously large gap between the AX3 and the 914. I am still holding out for 2014 as a replacement for the AX3.

    I was a bit confused they were releasing the 2014i and the AX5ai. I wonder when we'll see HDMI switching?

    There's a review of the 2014i in one of the home cinema mags this month, can't remember which though.
