Even thinking about upgrading my receiver. Few years ago I bought the Samsung receiver not really knowing anything about home theater equipment. Friend of mine got a Onkyo sr608 about six months ago and I love the sound from it. But I live in a apartment so I can't blast my system. Just wondering if it is worth the upgrade and which way to go with the Onkyo 609 or Denon 1912. Thanks

either one will give you more features than your current receiver. If the networking functionality and streaming has any value to you I'd say yes, go for it.

I'd probably get the 2112 over the 1912 since it is roughly only $40 more

^^^

well...

what you primarily "heard" were your friends speakers and how they interact with his room... the rudimentary room correction on the onkyo doesn't hurt either (although likely making very little difference in this case)...
