ok, I will do a more in depth write up later, but I just wanted to say I moved from a 3009 to 5010 last night. The user interface is a little different in that you can't go directly to the setup menu- need to go to the home screen, then choose setup.
either way, there was a significant improvement in sound from the 3009 to 5010. Before I get any flames, I know there shouldn't be that much of a sound difference between the two. If I am playing devils advocate, I would say that I must have improperly calibrated the 3009, while I properly calibrated the 5010? I did calibrate 5 listening positions on the 5010 vs 3 listening positions on the 3009.
On the 3009, I had to bump up the subs 3db for it to give me the overbloated bass that I like. with the 5010, I didn't have to do it. It just seems that the calibration or eq on the 5010 is more aggressive? I am not sure. Honestly, it could be just a huge placebo effect since I know the 5010 costs $1k more and I am trying to justify the purchase????
Again, I will give more in depth listen as it breaks in.
