Fwiw
thats been the story for years now

I have a 5009 that may have ...like 6 hours on it

It was a warranty replacement for a 905 that had failed a few times

During the course of all the back and forth I went ahead and bought another receiver

then they decided they were replacing the Onkyo 905 with a new 5009 unit

In the closet it sits

The X010 models seem to be the year they fixed their HDMI board issues...or at least we should be proving that around now.

My other thought was the Denon x4000. The Onkyo seems better in all respects for the same price.


Does anyone use the THX setting? Difference?


Thoughts?
I have both and enjoy the X4000 better. The hdmi switching is much more solid on the x4000. The 3010 does have more features and a better gui

My 3010 is at Onkyo now for hdmi issues. I dont think it is an inherit problem with the 3010 but a problem of having cable tv line grounded.

So does your 3010 have a lag or drop signals with HDMI? Explain?


Also what about the power differences? Do you feel that the Onkyo is more powerful?

The hdmi on the Onkyo just seems to take awhile to sync while the Denon does not and the denon acts like the hdmi switching/syncing is very solid.

As far as power, I believe on paper that the 3010 has more power....i forget the specs. I use an external amp to power my fronts so I am not able to tell a difference in power as my center/surrounds are very efficient Klipsch speakers which dont take a lot to power.

When I get the 3010 back, I will run it in place of the x4000 a bit and see what my impressions are and report back. I should have it back within a week or 2 according to Onkyo. Again, I don't THINK the 3010 has hdmi issues like the 3007 it replaced. It seems that not having the cable splitter/feed grounded probably zapped the hdmi port during a storm. I just got my x4000 back for hdmi board replacement, as well as changing out the motherboard on my htpc because it lost hdmi at the same time. I lost an hdmi port on my tv as well when the 3010 lost hdmi and the only thing I find consistent is the Comcast wasnt grounded when I lost hdmi. I DO think the 3007 actually had a design problem...3010 I dont think so YET.

the 3010 is more comparable to the Denon 4520...if you were cross shopping brands

actually in 6 -12 months would be a better litmus test

the XX09 models are starting to fail now

if its the same deal next year with the XX10's...we will know nothing has really changed
