Hi, well here some bad experians with the 7005 compared to Onkyo TX876 and NR3007:1) GUI looks like something from a Commodore 64, real crap, and this is a 2010 receiver so called "the flagship" .....
2) Audyssey gives a lot of errors after setup, crossover not correct, phase not correct.
Same speakers and setup when i had the Onkyo's , with Onkyo Audyssey gives no errors.
3) Not having the settings any Onkyo unit has to "play" with sound modes and speaker settings in a great looking GUI.
4) the 7005 has two pre-sub outs but works as 1 so its more a Y-splitter......
5) the 7005 has two HDMI outs, but only 1 can be selected !
(this is realy stupid......)
6) the wide and high speakers are realy crap options to activate.
7) my unit is having a distortion in high notes, before Audyssey and after.
8) in general its not sounding ok, out of the box and after Audyssey.
9) the scaler is not doing a good job compared to HVQ Reon
So the 7005 is going back and hope to buy a Integra 70.2 soon, even i know it will have its problems to......
Some strong points for the Integra 70.2 (just a bit higher in price):
1) great looking 3D GUI and easy to work with
2) 2 HDMI outs that both have a signal and can be used at the same time
3) 2 Subwoofer out, both can be set to a different setup if needit.
4) Audyssey XT32
5) easy to select high or wide with one button on the remote
6) every setting you can think of can be set manual, and i mean ALL YOU CAN THINK OF !
7) all sources can be set different then others, even with or without the use of the scaler
8) a great video scaler form HVQ, the the Reon with ISF.........
9) 9.2 !!
Sorry it endid this way for this great looking receiver.........
