I am contemplating buying the Pioneer VSX-D2011 to accompany some Kef KHT-2005 speakers. I was pretty much set on the Pioneer until I visited my local SuperFI retailer who recommended the Rotel RSX-1055, quite a bit more expensive but reconed the Pioneer was full of gimmics that I wouldn't need, which I probably agree with. He was praising the power supply to the Rotel and told me how important it was to have a good power supply. I want to go to 6.7 / 7.1 so with the Rotel would need the extra 2 channel amp, obviously costing more. My question is: In my living room, will I notice the difference between the Rotel and the Pioneer? 99% usage for home cinema, 1% music. Am I just being advised to get the Rotel as it costs more??
