    3 new Pioneer models have just been launched in USA, these are the
    VSX 52TX (known as 2014i over here I think)
    VSX 54TX (Replacement to the AX3)
    VSX 56TXi (replacement to the AX5i)

    Further details can be found at the following link on the US audioholics forum.

    http://www.audioholics.com/news/pressreleases/PioneerEliteVSX-56TXireceiver.php

    The AX3 is retailing at $750 but haven't a clue how much it will be in UK. The VSX-2014i is retailing for £605 at techtronics but it does have i-link.

    The benefits of the new models over the previous versions can be summarised as follows:

    component video up-conversion that allows both composite and s-video signals to be up converted to component video levels and then sent to the display through a component cable.

    Multi-room/source capabilities allowing one receiver to act as the centerpiece of multiple rooms.

    IO ports to offer custom installers the ability to connect and allow the control of source products that are hidden in another room or inside a cabinet no matter the manufacturer.

    RS232 port for PC and control connectivity.
    Assignable digital inputs and outputs.

    A redesigned easy to use remote control with LCD display (VSX-56TXi and VSX-52TX only)

    Advanced MCACC set up

    Dolby Pro logic IIx

    These models should be available over here in a month or two so I'm finally gonna get rid of my sony 940 and get the AX3.

    The models are already on the US pioneer web site at:

    The brochure for the new AX5Ai has been online at Pioneer's UK website for some time now; enter AX5Ai from here. MCACC has been updated to adjuest for reverberation time. Looks promising!

    Just As Long As You Do Not Buy It From Techtronics.

    They Have Just Gone Bust.
