I may be getting this receiver but I need to make a decision by tomorrow. I have 10 speakers around to use and am debating between 7.2 and 9.2, and I still have decide on which combination of wides, heights, or rear surrounds I want to use. I plan on getting a 2nd sub so x.2 is required.
-L,C, and R are all Triad Bronze. (4 ohm 200w max)
-2 Triad Bronze Satellites (These will be front wides or heights if I go that route - 8 ohm 125w max)
-Rest are Bowers & Wilkins M1 (8 ohm 100w max)
-1 Emotiva Ultra 12
I believe this receiver would run a 9.2 setup with these just fine, with room for upgrades.
I have a chance to get the 1009 for about $800. Are there any other better deals out there?
