Hey guys I finally got down two for my budget but I am leaning towards the onkyo. I know Denon has the audyssey XT whereas onkyo does not. Is there a huge difference between the two especially that now onkyo has resolved most of the issues on 616 with their firmware update.
Thanks alot.

Sorry, I'm too lazy to look up the Audyssey version in the Onk 616, (I'm sure you've done that but just forgot to mention it), but if it's 2EQ, then you have to know that there is no equalization for the subwoofer channel. So, Denon is your choice if you'd like to have deep, smooth and even bass in your HT system. smile.gif

Edit: OK I got over my laziness and saw that the Onk 616 has 2EQ. It's up to you to decide (or do more research!).

Feri,
Just a FYI .... Onkyo chose to only use 2EQ on the 515, 616, and 717 and then jumped to XT32 on the 818. eek.gif

Thanks guys. The denon 1913 has only the Audyssey MultEQ not the advanced version. Does that calibrate the subwoofer too.

Yes. All Audyssey versions (except the most basic 2EQ on the lower Onkyo models) can EQ the subwoofer.
