You should look at a crown power amp like a xls 1500 and a good stereo preamp or the Oppo BDP-105D.

I would think onkyo will upgrade AccuEQ to the next level with each new model year, as Audyssey is still a work in progress, so is AccuEQ.

Its more like a cap, not a battery. If all else is good with your 5007, just get a AC plug-in battery backup unit (UPS)for $50. It should keep the avr powered in standby for days, but only a few...

Going by the graphs it looks like AccuEQ did the job, it matched all the speakers. It would only be a real compare if they ran Audyssey with the same speakers in the same room. Highend rolloff, a...

S/N could be a issue, I've done this in the past between upgrades with very good results. Many 7.1 inputs by-pass all but the volume control.
