How about you starting an owner's thread? I've asked Mark to delete this one or at least lock it, or whatever he thinks is best.

As you have a unit in your system, you’d be a clear candidate for...

Good points. But you can add manual PEQ to any system for 50 bucks with a secondhand Behringer. Admittedly only two channels though, but it's bass where it is needed most. Or of course, for rather...

Maybe I should ask a Moderator to lock and/or delete this thread so that a new one can be started afresh now that units are beginning to appear.

If people think that's a good idea, I have no...

Post deleted. It was being typed as Mark issued his warning which I hadn't seen until I hit 'submit'.

I agree with much of what you say, especially with regard to the cost of the discs. I suspect we will pay more but I hope not. We didn't specifically pay more for TrueHD than DD 5.1 but then again,...

One doesn't have to be an owner to contribute to the thread. A Moderator has already confirmed that, so that comment of yours is not relevant to anything.

I agree with you that SQ is paramount. My contention is that with modern electronics of good quality (as the XMC-1 is and the units from other mainstream makers in the $1,000 price region) the...

Steady on... they have launched a $2,000 unit which does less than many units at half the price (including AVRs with preouts there). It's a 7.2 processor when the (present and) future is 11.2...

Is it really necessary to requote a very long post, on the same page as the original, to add nothing to it other than the 5 words above?

I had a 5009 before I bought the 5509 (I wanted Audyssey Pro which wasn't offered on the 5009). I can promise you I paid less for it than the 5509.

The 5010 costs more today than the 5009, but...

But isn’t it great that we have a range of potential speaker placements! Presumably, as they have specified a range, a good effect will be achieved anywhere within that range. I did ask Onkyo...

I tend to use PLIIz all the time too. I found DSX created a way too front-centric soundstage for my taste and pretty much destroyed the 'bubble'. I mostly notice PLIIz if I switch it off IYKWIM. I...
