The same as the Elite 52TX and if you follow things the current "in receiver". AreaDVD called it the best HT receiver under 2,000 Euros. Stunningly good sound. Measured at a true 115 watts X5 of Mosfet goodness. 3 days old with receipt, box, remote, manuals and full warranty. $650. Much better than the Yamaha 2500 and Denon 3805. Check the raves at http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=90

As rated by AreaDVD:

Top receivers under $1500

1. Pioneer VSX-1014
2. Yamaha RX-V1500
3. Denon AVR-2805
4. Pioneer 53TX
5. Marantz SR7400

If you want to make a $1,000 receiver sound more like a $4,500 receiver, you'd better turn to a quality universal disc player and a well-produced high-resolution mix. I had both, with the Marantz universal player and a collection of DVD-Audios and SACDs, including Bucky Pizzarelli's Swing Live (DVD-Audio and SACD, Chesky), Muddy Waters' Folk Singer (SACD, MCA), and Respighi's Pines of Rome (DVD-Audio, AIX). It did exactly what it was supposed to do—pass the signals through the preamp stage unscathed and then give them enough clean power to do their thing. This was audible proof once again that you don't need a $20,000 system to appreciate the benefits of high-resolution music. The amp channels are nice and clean (i.e., free from distortion, grit, etc.), even with all channels driven (and driven hard), which is never a given even with mid-priced receivers.


Build Quality: 92
Quality internals, including dual Motorola 48-bit chips for processing
Solid exterior build

Value: 94
Peripheral features are the primary difference between this and models that cost $500 more
A cut above much of the $1,000 crowd

Features: 93
DPLIIx processing is a legitimate bonus
The MCACC system calibration is a key feature for a receiver

Performance: 92
Warm, dynamic sound that you'd expect from Pioneer Elite products
As strong with music as it is with movies

Ergonomics: 94
The MCACC system is a big help
If automatic systems aren't for you, the remote and menu are well done, too

Overall Rating: 93
Quality like this makes taking the leap into the four-figure pool a lot easier, thanks to its high-quality audio performance, build and design quality, ease of use, and strong features list.

Have everything and yes it is that good. I ended up lucking into some Anthem seperates but out of all the receivers I have owned, just about every one, this was the best sounding by a fair margin.
Cheers.

No they're just toys I buy for myself. I have an upgrade addiction! Can help you setup a HTPC though that will upsample DVDs to 1080i and music to 24/192.
