Pioneer have just updated their 2012 AV receiver line up with two additional Elite-branded receivers, first up we have the VSX-42 which is priced at $450 and the second one at $650 - the VSX-60. Both AV receivers sport six HDMI inputs on the back, Ethernet, video scaling, optional Bluetooth ($99) with A2DP, AirPlay, DLNA, Panadora, and iOS or Android apps.

The VSX-60 is a bit beefier, with 10 more watts per channel, 7.2 instead of 7.1 support, optional Wi-Fi, and a better video processor. The VSX-60 also sports a HDMI input on the front of the receiver, is SiriusXM ready and adds a bunch of video and audio enhancements such as Stream Smoother, Advanced Video Adjust and a few others.

 

Pioneer are making these units cheap enough that even if you have an existing amp, you might consider upgrading. This includes myself.
