I have been seriously considering upgrading my TX-SR608 and have been looking at the 3008, but as I said in an earlier post, it will not fit into my TV stand. But I have been having second thoughts that I might be looking at the wrong model.
Here is what I need:
As much AVR watts/channel as possible that I will actually notice
Capable of running an external amp/pre-outs
Has all the latest video processing and codecs - that actually WORK.
I want Audyssey to EQ my sub (Rythmik F15) - My 608 does not do that and I am really not all that interested in REW, AntiMode, etc... I will not be upgading to duals because I have no more room.
I want the OSD for the menus
Not interested in 3D particularly, but would be nice I guess.
Not interested in networking functions really since my TV and PS3 and HTPC all do that, BUT I really, really wish to be able to update the AVR firmware without having to take the unit in to have it done.
The reason I was looking at the 3008 was primarily its power, pre outs and XT32 which would/should EQ my sub without need for another EQ program or device as well as the easy firmware updates.
So is there another model that would better suit my needs/wants?
