Pioneer Elite VSX-01TXH Vs. Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K

I recently got the Pioneer Elite 01 model and was wondering if I made the better choice. This is my first receiver so everything is new to me. I was a little upset that I could not see my iPod movies thru the iPod connection. I don't know if it is the same on the 1019 model. I actually went to buy the 1019, but I got talked into buying the 01 instead. I mainly wanted for a surround sound. Of course I want my music to sound great as well but movies and tv sports are my priority. Right now I haven't gotten the right speaker for it but that's a whole other topic on it's own. Did I make the right choice? or should I go and return this 01 model for the 1019? What I really want to know is what can one do that the other can't and vice verser. Thanks for any info.

The Elite is a 2 year warranty, pio is 1 year. The elite has preamp outputs for all channels in case you want to use an external power amp, the pio only has a pre-out for the subwoofer. I couldn't find what DAC's the pioneer uses but the Elite uses Wolfson which is what a lot of higher end products are using now. A little bit different amplifier design between the 2 but you won't notice the 10 watts difference. In my opinion the Elite is very nice and I would stick with it, they are great for movies and music.

I know I paid about what the asking price was but I wanted something soon and I got it soon. I wanted to make sure the choice I made was good and I feel very good about it after reading your reply. I know that there is a lot more I need to learn but within time, I will get some of the benifits here and there. I don't think I am going to return it now. Thanks again.
