Pioneer VSX-LX70


Great AV receiver. Was using VSX-AV2AV-S prior to LX70. Once I saw the upscale picture, I was sold.

Very clean and accurate upscaling from any source to 1080 ; Lotsa power to spare ; Top quality finish ; AUTO calibration with speakers painless

el-cheapo remote for a gigantic monster ; Setup screen is no match for SONY ES series color interface
