Pioneer is launching its own line of Hi-Fi amp, including the VSX-819H.
- Three HDMI inputs
- Two component video inputs
- Three digital-audio inputs (two optical, one coaxial)
- Onboard Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio decoding
- Automatic speaker calibration
- Auto Level Control (keeps commercials from being louder than programs)
- Connect your iPod via USB and browse your songs with an onscreen interface
- Sirius-ready, with onscreen interface
The biggest missing feature is the lack of analog video upconversion--which is available on the step-up VSX-919AH ($400).
