How does this compare with Sony STR-DN1080?
How is the reliability compared to Sony and Yamaha? I've heard not so good things about Denon and Onkyo.

PS - For anyone wondering, this Pioneer comes with Atmos, TrueHD and DTS X

You may want to add the model number to the description.

For reference, it is the VSX-LX102.

I'm wondering the same. I missed out on the Sony 1080 $399 deal, and unfortunately it seems to be stuck at $599 now.

I'm debating if i should wait for the 1080 to come back on sale, or just go with another brand. Another option is buying the 1080 at full price using Citi card, and hoping the price goes down within 60 days (so I can use Citi Price Rewind).

EDIT: This pioneer one only has 1 audio zone, which is a dealbreaker for me.

I own this one. Got it last summer at frys to use in my home theater which is almost done. To that extent I can't speak to its reliability since it probably has less than 100 hours of use.

I can just put this small personal reliability out there. My yamaha has been running fine for 4+ years. I bought a refurbished onkyo 2 years ago. About 9 months in it developed an issue where it would shut down after a few hours. It got worse over the course of a couple of weeks. I sent it back under warranty and it has been fine since. My father also bought refurbished onkyo several months before me and it has never had a problem.

I unfortunately have no experience with the Sony so I can't say but I will say so far I do like the pioneer. Its over kill for my 5.1 1080p setup but it does mean I could use it down the road in my next av setup.

Yes the price is stuck but I believe it will definitely come down after a few months. I am in no hurry to upgrade either.

That's great information. Thank you!
Edit - I forgot to ask how this Pioneer sounds and works?

From personal experience, stay away from Onkyo. Piece of junk. I just picked up a Denon about a month ago model 2400 and wondering if i should return that and get this instead.
