Ever since Onkyo’s purchase of Pioneer in 2015, it was just a matter of time before Pioneer introduced their foray into the midpriced / hi-end AV receiver arena with their Elite VSX-LX303. The 9.2 channel AV receiver is priced at $799 and, like Onkyo’s TX-NR787 supports and upmixes to DTS:X and Dolby Atmos soundtracks via 5.2.4-ch or 7.2.2-ch speaker layouts.

Both receivers have similar power specifications, # of amplifier channels, processing and multi-room capabilities. There are some features that differentiate the two models however.

Might want to fix the 1000 wpc specification listed :)

Is there an actual difference between MCACC in this Pioneer vs the Advanced AccuEQ in the Onkyo?

Important to note that the warranty for the Elite VSX-LX303 is 3 years parts/labor while the Onkyo 787 is 1 year less @ 2 years parts/labor. However the Onkyo RZ series AVRs do have a 3 year parts/labor warranty....

Just my $0.02... ;)
