Ive read and read and now my head hurts. Ive been out of the AVR game for a while and it's time to upgrade. Right now I'm liking the ONKYO line the most as I want something with the most current up to date features, power, SQ and is as "future proof" as the budget allows.
I wanted to cap the budget at $1000, but I'm curious, what does the 3009 get me over the 818?
I see it's a few more watts, but weighs quiet a bit more and has a much higher amp rating for max current draw...more powerful then the specs lead you to believe?
What other features make it worth the $350 street price increase?
