No, I am not electronically inclined at all...

I am definitely going to get it to the repair center... I love this receiver and even though i plan to get the new atmos rz3100 when it comes out, i'll keep this one for another room and as a spare just in case.
The 3009 would make a heck of an amp for a few of the speakers, to take some of the load off the RZ3100.

I switched in my Onkyo 1020 and it's working.. so, the signal chain is fine... therefore logically the problem must be with the receiver...

BTW: My receiver have been working fine for years, but after i plugged in the new DuneHD 4k Solo player, this happened after some playing around.. could it be possible the dune shorted the hdmi board in the receiver?
Exactly what happened to my onkyo 3009 about a year ago. I believe the receiver was around 4 yrs old. I just contacted onkyo and they sent out a box to return and replaced the board for free. Been working fine since.

I just remembered a litle more. Give your s/n to onkyo and it might be on their list of potentials having a bad hdmi board. Thus, free repair. If not, call them. They were really good about it.

Hi everyone,

I've had my TX-NR3009 since 2012 and love it!!! As always in the AV world we tend to want more from our equipment.

I'm a complete newbie to the amplifiers though and my questions are the following:

1. Will powering my speakers through the Emotiva XPA Get3 (most likely 5 channel or hopefully 7 ) improve the sound quality dramatically or will be barely noticeable? I used to power my JBL Northridge E90 floor standing speakers with the E30 center and Studio L830 surrounds. The sound was very good. Now, I will be powering JBL Studio L820, LC2, and L810 for the space reasons that used to run off Onkyo HT-RC160 in another room. I guess the real question here is whether or not TX-NR3009 truly delivers the promised power as per the specs or there's room for growth.

2. When using the amplifier, I assume you control the volume on the amp and not the receiver anymore. When people use multiple stereo amps, do you control the volume of fronts, center, and surrounds independently on different amps? Sorry if this question sounds silly but I really have 0 experience with pre/pro and amps. Only AVR experience...


Thanks in advance,
Ilya

First things first. You will still use your AVR just as you always have. Volume is controlled by the AVR and the output (pre-outs) go to your amp(s).

As far as a noticeable difference, you have to ask yourself the serious questions. Do I listen to movies/music at high volumes? Do I hear any sound anomalies coming from my speakers when I push them hard?

If you listen loud, you might very well get better response from your speakers. They won't sound any different, you will just have headroom to play with for demanding content. At moderate volume levels, you won't notice any difference at all.

With a recommended amp rating of 225W for the E90s, you would be in the "sweet spot" with 200WPC. 250WPC would be about as much as you could ever need.

As far as the NR3009 delivering the rated power... yes it does, but only in stereo mode. When you add channels, you drop the power. If you are running 5.1 you will probably have around 80W - 100W per channel. Less for very demanding content like bass-fest movies.

I own the 3009 and have the XPA-3 powering my RTiA9 speakers while the AVR powers the center and surrounds. I get some seriously powerful sound from the system with the amp. It's clearer and heavier on the bass during bass intense scenes too. I have all my speakers crossed at 80 Hz, which helps with the power, and am running two 15" subs for bass material. It is truly visceral and blissful.

Your first though should be with a powerful, dedicated subwoofer. That will make your system sound better right off and you'll think you have a whole new set of speakers. After you employ a good sub, then you should look into the amp for the mains. Good luck and good listening.

Onkyo TX-NR3009 - Emotiva XPA-2 300 WPC - Polk Audio RTiA9 Mains - CSiA6 Center - F/XiA6 Surrounds - Dual PSA XV-15se Subwoofers - Epson 5030UB Projector - Monoprice Multi-format 106" HD Gray screen - Samsung BD-F5900 3D Bluray - WDTV Live HD Media Player with 6TB External Storage - Nintendo Wii - XBox 360 - - XBox One S - Logitech Harmony One, and custom DIY media console...

Thank you for a great advice! I was thinking about a sub as well. I'm currently using the studio L8400P and started looking into SVS SB13/SB16 sub.
