Hey 1009 owners!,
Not that there seems to be many around?
Just picked up a 1009 for Christmas ... overall pretty please with the receiver! I mainly wanted a decent sounding 5.1 with powered zone 2 and zone 3 for kitchen / pool.
I paired it with some little Paradigm MilleniaOne 5.0 speakers and a chunky Yamaha Sub, plus some Yamaha outdoors and in ceilings for the zone 2/3.
I bought the receiver as an long overdue upgrade from my 68cm CRT and an Ipod Radio! ... So while I was at it I grabbed a Samsung D7000 55" LED TV, PS3 and Foxtel HD IQ2 cable, Merry Christmas to me!, and yes my wife tried to kill me.
It certainly does the job! (kids were stoked on Blueray Starwars over Christmas!), and im pretty much on top of my settings/config now (I think).
Only thing thats bugging me is the Zones and the delay or echo effect between zone 2/3 and the main zone. I know its related to the processing of the 5.1 zone ... and If I switch to direct it does go away ... but that just rubbish as my beautiful sub is wasted and the main zone just sounds bunk on direct out of 2 speakers. I have noted that the delay doesnt seem as bad on some config setting, like THX Music ... or other random attempts ... but maybe im just imagining things now.
Maybe I can hassle Onkyo to try and sort this in a firmware update?, i.e. if its even addressable in software? ... yeah right.
Overall I'm happy pretty happy with the all the gear to be honest, although each component has minor flaws that keep them from perfection ... what do you do.
Onkyo Android App is pretty awesome too!, I use it alot over the standard IR remote.
Anyway ... just thought I share and if anyone has any suggested settings or tweaks and tips for the Receiver/TV/PS3/Foxtel setup im all ears!
