Pioneer to release new elite DTS-HD MA recievers Right on the heels of Onkyo's announcement of a DTS-HD MA decoding receiver, Pioneer became the second manufacturer to announce they would be releasing such a receiver.
The top three models in Pioneer's new line, the VSX-91TXH, VSX-92TXH and VSX-94TXH all will support HDMI V1.3a connectivity.

The recievers will "seamlessly" pass 1080p video while decoding Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Lossless Audio formats.

"Pioneer continually answers the call from audio video enthusiasts seeking the ultimate in rich home theater design. Our new line of Elite A/V receivers with HDMI 1.3a connectivity allows consumers to enjoy the benefits of the new technologies being used on music and movie discs,"
said Dave Bales, marketing manager of audio products for the home entertainment division of Pioneer Electronics. "We're bringing the true essence of high definition emotion to the audience."

The company said the VSX-91TXH would be released in June with a suggested retail price of $1000 USD. The other two models will be released in August, with suggested prices of $1300 USD and $1600 USD.

Pioneer second? where were you guys at CES? Denon announced DTS-HD in their top-of-the-line recievers at CES this year.

Those prices aren't so bad compared to the top end Harmon Kardon units.

I've owned Pioneer in the past and currently have an Onkyo 7.1 setup. Both brands have been very solid performers. Granted, there is better out there, but it all comes down to how much you are willing to spend.
