And you get some pretty nice upgrades with the 1009 over the 809. So the 1009 seems like a no brainer over the 809.

Well, no doubt it has an amazing video processor with its HQV Vida 1900 video chip and its isf day/night calibrations. I just used the Spears & Munsil BD, and my PDP has never looked better!

The SQ of the 3009 I bet has more balls, along with XT32. That's the receiver to have, but I am enjoying mine very much so far!

I'd like to manifest having this receiver perform flawlessly for a long time to come!

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.

Wow, thanks to the 3 of us, we've broken the 1 page barrier!

WOOHOO!!!!!

I guess we cheated though since I don't own 1 of these though.

Thank you for that! Didn't realize the other items.

But doesn't the HQV processor work full time on the 1009 except when doubling the res to 4K, where the Marvell kicks in?

an most people don't realize that's one of the main reasons its more then the 809 is cause of the marvell qdeo which is why oppos blu ray players are so expensive

And I thought it was because of the DAC's and separate power supplies

There are two other items I'm enjoying that I didn't mention earlier: 1 is the Onkyo Remote2. And 2, I thought I would miss the extra oomph that my 1007 had, but as my receiver breaks in, it's starting to sound better on music! A pleasant surprise...

Hello everyone,
Just hooked up my TX-NR1009 to four HDMI sources: DirecTV, Oppo non-bluray DVD player, PS3, and ACER Revo HTPC.

Overall very happy with the 1009 with the exception of one issue. When I turn on the Oppo or open and close the tray, while watching DirecTV, the volume of the program I am watching oscillates, meaning the volume level goes down for about 5-10 seconds and then it goes back to the previous level it was set at. This happens all the time.

I switched HDMI inputs using different cables. Then I also switched to another model Oppo player and still does the same thing. However, it went away when I switched to a different brand DVD player, the oscillation went away.

Onkyo tech support says it is not the receiver. Oppo does not think it is their player, nor do have a solution.

Any thoughts?

Just want to clarify, it can do heights and back speakers (instead of wides) at the same time?
post #46 of 343
Will it do heights & wides at the same time?
post #47 of 343
From what Ive read online it cant do both at the same time so don't hold me to it .
As far as the front high an front wide how do you guys have yours setup front high or front wide? I chose front high my question is what the major difference between the two?
post #48 of 343
Actually it can do both heights and wides at the same time, as long as you're not running surround backs.

This thread lives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Still enjoying this receiver. It matched up with exactly what I was looking for at the time.
post #50 of 343
I'm enjoying mine too!

I like mine but wish you could run powered zone 2 and 7.1 at the same time. That was why I spent the extra money on the 1009 over the 809. The way they set up the 9 amps is almost unusable except for 5.1 and zones or 9.1.
post #52 of 343
I went with 9.1 exclusively.

It is very odd that the 1080p upscaling on the 809 uses the Vida, while 1080p upscaling on the 1009 uses the Qdeo. Why would the 1009 even have the Vida if it wasn't used for anything? Maybe it is a mistake on the features chart on the Onkyo website and it is really the Vida doing 1080p upscaling. [edit: the 3009 uses the same 809 split of 1080p Vida/4k Qdeo so I think the info on the onkyo site re: 1009 using Qdeo for 1080p scaling is incorrect[

Also, the much cheaper 609 and 709 use the Qdeo for 1080p upscaling so it seems strange that the 1009 would also. Seems like a downgrade to the 809 in that respect, if true.

Home Theater Magazine seems to like the video capabilities:

Can you please post a link or other cite for such a comparison between the 809 and 1009? The 809 and 1009 both use the same HQV Vida and Marvell Qdeo video processors and should be exactly the same performance wise.
post #57 of 343
I couldn't tell you the sites anymore I was eyeing up this receiver for over a yr I read that info a while ago one thing I do know the build quality on the 1009 is different then the 809

post #60 of 343
