Alright everyone I've been reading a lot of post about different AVRs and I decided to narrow my selection to these two receivers; the NR-1010 and the NR-3010. To be prank, i'm in such a dilemma right now on which to upgrade to. I don't mind spending the $400 that if its justified. I just need everyone's input or at least majority of our resident experts:) Any help is appreciated.

My current setup are as follows:
Onkyo SR-805
Elemental Designs A5-350
Polk Rtia9s/7s
Polk Fxia4
Polk Csia6
Emotiva XPA-5

Do you plan on going 11.2? If not just get the 1010. Aside from that the main difference I see is that the 3010 has two more amps and has independent power supplies.

Thanks for your input. In the meantime I would go 9.2 (wides) a few years maybe 11 but not anytime soon. And yes, I'm wondering how much those independent power supplies make a difference with sound and or overall fidelity. Granted I have an XPA-5 to power my front stage and the rears will solely be handled by either what I pick. More inputs? Tnx!

If you are not going to do 11 for a few years, get the 1010 now. In a few years, replace it with the newest technology. smile.gif

I was just about to reply to your message in the 3010/5010 thread. Yes, I would have the setup for 9.2 and have to say 2 yrs for the heights and going wides right now. The thing is that I would have to keep this one for at least 5 years maybe more rolleyes.gif I've been on the fence with this one for the past few months and just waiting to reach the price to about 1500. Although I would like your idea of replacing it in a few years but it will be a tough sell to the other half biggrin.gif I'm just trying to find a compromise price between 1010 and 3010. Thanks for the input and more is appreciated.

How much factor those independent power supplies provide anyway? Kinda learning that right now if it makes huge difference or not.

Here are a few beefs I have with the TR-NR1010s:

If you connect an iPod or iPhone to the USB port, no sound will be output from the headphones jack.
I don't like that restriction!

Also, the "Whole House Mode" only supports analog audio.
I don't like that if I'm using HDMI out on Zone 2!

Not enough speaker terminals, for example:
* If the “Speakers Type(Front)” setting is set to “Bi-Amp” or “Digital Crossover”, Powered Zone 2 cannot be used.
* When the “Powered Zone 2” setting is set to “Yes” and Zone 2 is turned on, the surround back and front high speakers cannot be used.
* When the “Powered Zone 3” setting is set to “Yes” and Zone 3 is turned on, the surround speakers cannot be used.

* IntelliVolume does not work for Zone 2/3.
*The Auto Standby function does not work when Zone 2/3 is on.
*Much heavier than other AVRs: 50.7 lbs (23.0 kg) compared to Denon @ 3313CI 26.5lbs, Pioneer SC-67 @ 38.4 lbs, Yamaha RX-A2020 @ 37.7 lbs

One thing that is nice is that the Main zone and Zone 2 can listen to different AM/FM radio stations at the same time.
