    I am looking at upgrading my amp, I am currently using the Sony 940 but am thinking of going for the Pioneer VSX1011. I don't seem to have seen any reviews on this and just wondered what people thought. I know there is a 2011 but is this really woth the extra money?
    One extra thing as well, I have chance to buy some Jamo THX speakers, would the pioneer be a good match?
    Thanks

    Hi Daz

    I too am thinking of the 1011 as my next amp, but I have the same problem a you. I cannot find any reviews on the amp.

    As far as I know the main difference between the 1011 and the 2011, is that the 2011 has the following:

    The auto calibration Microphone.
    A USB connection.
    Double Layer Chassis
    Trans Stabiliser
    A/D Converter 96 kHz/24-Bit (2-channel)
    Component Video Input/Output

    This is going by the pioneer website.
    I cannot tell you if its worth the extra as I have not heard either.
    There are plenty of people who are happy with the 2011.

    But someone must have brought the 1011, my concern is that the 1011 could be a really great amp for the money, but because its eclipsed by the 2011 it may never get reviewed by mags/websites.

    Regards

    I think this is propably the case...anyway i demo'd both amps head to head ...and couldn't justify the cost difference...for VERY little difference in sound.

    The 1011 is a great amp......and next years version will be even better if iLink is filtered down through the pioneer range.

    Buy the 1011....and buy more dvds with the difference saved.

    Cheers

    Hi vee_cee

    Its good to hear that someone has brought the 1011.

    Interesting to hear that there is not a great deal between the two amps in terms of sound.

    Great website by the way

    Cheers

    I bought a 1011 as well from LE.

    Sounds fantastic, but manual MACC was a nightmare until you get it right.

    Took about a week to get it set perfectly for movies and music....:eek:
