    These two seem to be around the same sort of price, but am i right in thinking that the 2011 is higher spec and the AX3 is the replacement for the 1011?

    Which is the better of the two?

    Thanks!

    The AX3 is the new one and is the same as the 1011.

    Yes I'd go for the 2011 too. Until it's no longer avilable the AX3 seems like it's a little lost in the A/V Receiver pricing world.

    The AX3 is a replacement for the 2011 not the 1011 (AIR Studios tuned etc etc) - not sure how they compare to each other yet though. However, Pioneer are no longer shipping this product except for the last backorders so you'll have no choice about it very soon!!!

    (we've still got one in stock ;) )

    Nope,

    the AX5 is the replacement for the 2011. The AX3 is indeed replacing the 1011.

    Both AX3 and AX5 will be tuned by AirStudios.

    Also check here:

    More information available tomorrow after having visited the IFA in Berlin. ;)

    BTW: Just got my 1011 and I'm stunned... :eek:

    The AX3 may OFFICIALLY be the replacement of the 1011 (i.e. same price point) but it has more in common with the 2011.

    Thus making the 2011 a 5star bargain!

    If you can find one, buy it cos it's not like retailers need to discount them to clear their shelves!!!

    :D

    Big Adam - I wouldn't say so, it's basically the 1011 with the Auto-Setup procedure...

    Has same remote, connectivity & specs as the 1011.
