Which one is better? Price wise they’re about the same but how do they fare one against the other?

While it doesn’t have anything special going for it, the Pioneer is still a good av receiver for the money. Is it the best? No. But its room correction is pretty cool and also has good sound quality.

I would add that the Pioneer VSX-1131 is a reliable model with increased HDMI ports which is a nice touch. Their MCACC system works rather well.

Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration System or their room correction system.

If I had to choose, I would opt for the McIntosh MA5200 which is around $4,500. While it is still very expensive compared to other brands, it’s one of the cheapest McIntosh models and price/quality ratio is excellent. This offers a sound quality you won’t find in any other model priced below this one (no matter the brand).
