Its great to hear that this thing runs cool though.
Agreed, but I think it gives a good reference. I would rather compare it to soemthign 2x more money and say the +/- than simply rave that I FINALLY HAVE A RECEIVER that just "works" no matter what I do
My comparison is this:
1. HDMI-CEC works flawlessly with Panasonic Camera, Mits 73", PS3 Slim for VOLUME, INPUT, On/OFF. Makes prgraming a harmony trivial.
2. HTPC support at 1080p works on ALL INPUTS. No need to create a custom EIDE to stop flickering
3. It runs cool
4. It runs cool
So while I only had the 807 for 1 week (flicking issue with 1080p HTPC, common problem), it is nice to see onkyo officiallysupporting HDMI or VGA computer hookups.
It is also nice to have onkyo make a product that runs cool. Seriously, I am still SHOCKED at how loud I use this forwith 7.1 and cool it stays. I hate to say "Denon cool" but this is close. Almost wories me
