x2, I've been playing with it for a couple of days now and it is a pretty awesome machine...and the price the egg was selling these for, unbelievable!
Mine also came in a box that looked like it was never opened, neither did the little bags and whatnots that had the remote and accessories and literature. I am fairly confident in saying that my box that I received was never in fact opened. I suspect it was more of a move by newegg to clear out the last of their 809 stock in preparation for the 818's.
I am still learning all the different features this avr has, but so far it does not disappoint one bit. I loved my old denon 1611 and it has been regulated to bedroom duty now, and this onk smokes it in just about every way, and the best part was that it only cost me around $170 more then what I paid for the 1611 some 14-15 or so months ago....not bad for a $170 upgrade.
