What exactly is your current & future setup going to be like? Which components exactly are you planning on adding? Speaker setup, etc., etc.??? What additional functionality are you looking to gain in the upgrade, regardless of make/model? Again, the more detail you can share the better, besides price. There's always something bigger & 'better' up the road, of course depending on one's needs.
I'll be honest, the more I speak with people looking to upgrade, it often becomes clear that they don't necessarily always need what they think they need ;).
I am interested in the Pioneer SC-1222-K AV receiver for my next home theater system. The reason I would purchase it now is that it is currently on sale for $529 which seems like a good price, especially compared to what I see it going for other places. I will be purchasing the components to complete this over the next several months for financial reasons. Right now I have a Pioneer Elite SVX-30 which has worked out great for the price for my current home theater setup and this newer and better receiver seems like it would be a good centerpiece for my bigger and better new home theater, while keeping my old system for another room.
Aside from the price still being available down the road I wonder if there will be an even better receiver come out in the same price range.
I don't even see a review here on Cnet but that would not really answer my question anyway. It seems to be a lot of receiver for the price from what I can tell.
Any viewpoints on pricing or possible changes in technology or reasons to get it now or wait will be appreciated.
