i have a brand new onkyo 818 that i am probably going to sell due to the 24 fps bug
what should i get to replace it ?
That would likely depend on whether you're hooked on XT32 or not?
never used XT32 before and the receivers that have it are over my budget.
what do u recommend?
i am willing to go refurb but prefer new
any chances onkyo will come thru and fix the bug?
Ah .. then you never ran Audyssey on the 818, got it. Then you may want to consider one of the Denon CI models (review post #2 in the Denon AVR-XX13 Owner's thread linked in my sig to see a comparison of the features offered on each model) or the Marantz 5007 or 6007 all of which use Audyssey MultEQ XT.
