Yea, that's true. I'm doing a comparison of the 809 and the 1009 and those are really the only 2 main differences.
The only other differences between the 2 being...
1. 1009 having Independent Block Construction (Amp/Preprocessor)
2. 1080p Upscaling 1009 = (Marvell Qdeo) 809 = (HQV Vida)
3. 1009 having Zone 3 Line Out, 809 does not.
4. 1009 having vTuner, Pandora, Rhapsody, Sirius/XM iRadio, 809 does not.
