Thanks for your comments, you are wright, its design is kind of retro but really nice and stylish, and the silver color matches my Vincent SAV P150 power amp.
For listening to music I really prefer in stereo so that Audyssey equalizes the sound, it would have been nice thought to be able to change from 2.0 to 2.1 without heaving to go into the menu, thats how I had it before with my Denon.
The Onkyo 809 has THX modes that I didnt have previewsly with my Denon, but I think I prefer better without it, I really thought that THX modes would be the best, maybe I have to try diferent settings.
It would be nice for the guys at Onkyo to clarify some of the settings and tell us which ones work best, they should know, in their web page they should have some settings advice to get the best sound possible.
