Just got off the phone with Onkyo again and this is their trade in options
TX-NR5010 - $1800
PRS - SC5509 - $1600
Anyone out there with a dead TX-NR1000?
If it were me I would look at the deals out there for an SC-77 or 79 since you are use to the amps in the 1000 these 2 models will give you close to the same performance with more bells and whistles not to mention more reliability.
