I have a Denon 989 which is the same as the 2809 but with a different remote. I think the 2809 actually comes with a main remote and a zone 2 remote.
Other than that the receivers are the same.
I've had mine for 3.5 years and haven't had any problems at all. Not one. I use it daily with 6 ohm speakers and a powered sub.
The only things that might deter you are lack of passing a 3D signal and on screen display overlay over HDMI.
Neither are an issue for me as I don't have a 3D HDTV and my 989 is sitting on a shelf at eye level next to the TV so I call see the display just fine.
