I am buying my first home cinema setup and have seen a PIONEER VSX922 at my local Richer Sounds store but it is ex-display.
I have read the reviews on this and it seems to be pretty damn good in its price range. It is priced at £199 and considering WHAT HIFI marked it 5/5 at £250, i am pretty tempted.
My question to you guys is, is buying ex-display risky when coming to AV Receivers. I know to stay away from ex-display TV's as they are often on for long hours and have the brightness ramped up to the highest which can reduce the overall screen brightness in the long run.
Any guidence on the above would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
