I have a pretty old system: set of Ruark Speakers - Epilogue - Rear , Prologue - front, Dialogue - Centre and Log Rythm sub which are matched to my old arcam alpha10Dave Amp 5.1 system. Does anyone have any idea if this amp will work well with them as I wish to upgrade to a more modern platform to match in with new TV and take advantage of internet. Also what DVD would you recommend.
Hi, can you recommend a speaker package to go with this amp, I have about £1000, I also noticed in your reviews you stated that you have to be careful partnering speakers because of the bright sound, any suggestions?
Hi, from experience, packages at around £1000 aren't really going to be good enough to make the most of this Pioneer. A good partner would be something like KEF's R100 5.1(£2750). If you can't stretch that far, give Dali's Zensor 5 5.1 (£1300) a go.
Dear WHF,please give us a wee bit more info on the overall sound i.e is it the same as 85/86?Does it need careful partnering with speakers as mentioned with the higher models?Thanks.
Did you ever get an answer? I've got B&W 685x6 (!) HTM61..getting worried!
Last years LX55 wasn't an SC model as mentioned in review. I thought more would have been mentioned with regards to implementation of class D3 amps like the SC-LX7/86,in this SC-LX56 vs. the class AB of last years VSX-LX55 TBH. How less dynamic is this compared to the SC-LX86 for the price? Thanks.
Is it as "bright" and forward sounding as other Pioneer receivers?
Edit: oops didn't see someone has already asked. Great minds...
Is this as bright as the top of the range models (which you've referred to in the reviews for the 86 & the 85)?
