Thanks for the great tips Tim. No wonder I keep coming to AVS Forum for guidance from other participants.

Cheers.

I'm currently looking at the 1010 and my local shop has two versions with a big price discrepancy. One is an "AIR" version that's much less expensive but includes an Airplay dock. I couldn't get a real answer out of them about any other differences. It makes no sense that the much cheaper version would include something extra. Anyone know?

The differences are...
One comes with an Airplay dock.
One is more expensive.
That is all.

Just noticed there's new firmware available (USB flashing only):

http://www.onkyousa.com/Products/model.php?m=TX-NR1010&class=Receiver
Quote:
The 2/19/2014 update will address the following: UPDATE AVAILABLE ONLY via USB

1. Corrects lock up failure when using Telstra T Box or MiCasaVerde Vera Lite controller on the same network

I actually have a VeraLite, not sure what the fix is for, never had any issues with the AVR, maybe cause I never use any network control, just a Harmony One.

OK I am planning on using this receiver for my fathers home theater set up,

I have installed seven speakers (in wall before picking the receiver). I am seeing in the manual talk of "FRONT HIGH" & "FRONT WIDE" speaker placement. This would be 11 channels, I see in the manual there are speaker connections for all eleven speakers, but the receivers specs are 140 x 7. So I am confused how a 7 channel amp is going to power 11 speakers.

Is my father really going to be missing out without the front "HIGH" and "WIDE" speakers? This will be his first H/T, I just want to set it up the best that I can for him.

The built-in amp can drive up to 7 channels (the subs do not count as they should be active, self-powered) . For anything beyond that (FW and/or FH) you'd need to add an external amp.

I'm fine with the 7.2 I currently have. And there's not many 7.1 content, let alone 9.x or 11.x, so 9.x+ is DSP-produced and not discreet.

I have an opportunity to pick one of these up and it's hard to ascertain if they are relatively free from HDMI board failures like the 929, or if I should look elsewhere. I'm trying to decide between the Onkyo 1010 or Denon X4000.

I'm very pleased with my 1010. Onkyo's board issues were fixed after the 2010 models.

I'm excited to see how this receiver drives 5 SLS Audio CT8R Studio monitors and 2 SLS Audio CPSS12 Subs! I found a killer deal for this receiver and just ordered it. I was thinking of getting the Denon AVR-X4000, but this looks like a better receiver overall.

Does anyone have any success playing DSD through foobar2000 directly to the 1010 over HDMI (using an ATI 5770 card)? For the life of me I cannot get it to work, only as PCM (with ASIO in DoP mode).

I've never seen the DSD light come up on the 1010's display, it only shows PCM.
