Pioneer VSX-LX55 vs Onkyo TX-NR809


Standard Member

I prefer the two receivers Pioneer VSX-LX55 and Onkyo TX-NR809.
I'll use Tannoy speakers: Mercury v4, Mercury V1, Mercury VC, TS 1201.
For me very important stereo and video (upscaling...) quality.
Which is better and why?
Which chip is using Pioneer VSX-LX55 for video upscaling?

I am considering these amps too, to replace a Sony 5300es. thing is I do see some problems reported on the onkyo but not on pioneer. any opinions would be great. onkyo seem a heavier build quality but pioneer is prettier looking.
