So I started looking into the Onkyos more and the 818 and 1009 are very similar. The 818 has the Audyssey XT32 where the 1009 has just the XT. Also the 818 has DTS-HD Express. Are these features that would make the 818 a better choice over the 1009?

I really don't care about DTS-HT Express but Audyssey MultEQ XT32 is a definite improvement over MultEQ XT.

The Yamaha RX-A1020 is also a very capable AVR. I would decide between it, the 818, and the Marantz. The 818 lacks AirPlay so if that is a major concern to you, personally, I would favor the Marantz.

Among all of the above, I gave significant weight to XT32. It really is that good. If the Marantz had Audyssey MultEQ XT32 there is no question I would have bought it instead of the 818.
