Default SC-05 upgrades

Since this model has been out for a while has there been improvements or upgrades? If so, how would you know if you are buying the latest and greatest of the SC-05s?

There is no upgrades for the SC-05. I currently am using one and its Advanced MCACC feature is what I love the most (other than the cleanliness of ICEpower amps and PQLS jitter-free audio playback). The standing wave and reverb control of Advanced MCACC work like a charm!

Default Home Media Gallery Question on the SC-05


I just figured out how to properly setup the HMG to see my Windows based laptop and the media on it.

Problem is, since then, HMG takes about an hour to load. I have tried it unplugging the network cable with the same result. Anyone have any idea what may be causing the slow load time for HMG and if there is a reset for the the network settings? I am predicting it may be a configuration problem that doesn't know how to get rid of itself.

I have tried resetting the receiver to factory defaults, but it didn't resolve this problem.

Default Hmmm VSX-1019 or SC05 ?

Was going for a VSX-1019 but a sale this weekend has the SC05 on for $888.
I'm mostly a Home Theatre guy with some old Klipsch Synergy series. in 7.1

At this discount, its only a tad more the the $630 for the 1019.
Any reason NOT to go for the extra and get an Elite?

Sources will me some HD media on the network, played over HDMI from an MVIX, some 1080i/720p from an assortment of cable and sat boxes.
Maybe some BluRay from an HTPC.

Output to a Panny 54V10 or 58V10 if the sale looks what I think it does.

All HDMI of course.

Is there ANYTHING the VSX has over the Elite I should be looking at other than price?

Need to know by 08:00 AM this Saturday

Go get the SC-05, the sound quality difference is night and day. There is no comparison between the two. I absolutely love my SC-05. Even if you don't think there is no use of the ICEpower amplification, the extra warranty and better remote and build quality alone is enough justification for the extra money.

Depending which store you're going to, you might see me there. I'm the chinaman with a long ponytail.
