Pioneer VSX-1017

I have a Pioneer VSX-1016. It is a great receiver BUT it does not process HDMI audio. You must supplement your HDMI connection with a separate audio hookup.

This is not a huge deal but it's an important point that you should factor into your decision making. I have no idea if Pioneer has resolved this issue with the next generation receiver (the VSX-1017).

I have my sources running currently with ditigal audio and the sound is excellent.

That said, I'm still converting to Toslink as soon as the new cables arrive.
