post #92 of 343
I've had my 1009 a few days now and I am loving it. One thing I've noticed is that the volume control doesn't have an indicator light on it so one needs to rely on the onscreen graphic or the receiver's display. I also notice that one really needs to turn the volume knob significantly to increase the volume as the volume control is extremely precise. My concern is that one has to set the volume control really high to get to the THX reference level. The onscreen graphic shows almost 3/4 full. Is this normal? Am I in danger of speaker damage or amp damage if I take it much higher? Has anyone noticed this also? I guess I'm used to my older receiver with an indicator light on the knob. By the 10 o'clock position it would be more than loud enough.

Hi Folks

Ordered a 1009 today should have in a end of next week this is to replace 2 * 809's that had HDMI issues. Hope the 1009 will do the job.

I see the same at thx reference it is all the way up to 83 which is out of 100. I would say running much higher than that for prolonged periods might cause some heat issues but I am not sure as I rarely even leave it at the reference level.

You can learn a lot by looking through the audyssey threads and about how it relates to the reference level. Overall I wouldn't worry about it an enjoy your new avr.

The 809 and 1009 share the same chassis and owners manual, if you've already tried two 809's, what makes you think the 1009 will work any differently?

Having problems with my center channel defaulting back to -4 db when I set it to a +4 db. Always goes to back to minus. Any ideas?

Hi bogd19, its temporary and will not be saved if you're adjusting center channel using the Home button on the remote. For permanent adjustment go into Level Calibration under Speaker Setup menu.

Hi.

Same chassis probably yes however acording to the UK repair agents for ONkyo the HDMI board is not the same one. Are they right no idea i can only hope so. They say every Onkyo model has a different HDMI board and this from a point of sourcing repairs can be an issue for them due to so many models.

Hmmm, Just guessing but it's probably the same basic board with more circuits added as you go up in models. Only a theory.

Cool! Well, let's manifest the saying: "Third times the charm!"

I do agree what can you do just hope i guess i think it was the 606 or 607 that had the warranty extended due to the HDMI board failing, the 875 had issues with the front display failing.

Do i like the Onkyo brand and sound yep its worth a go and i get a play with 9.2 as well

So fingers crossed

Onkyo was kind enough to replace my defective 1007 with a 1009, could anyone post the main differences?

Off the top of my head -

- 1007 is thx ultra 2 certified, 1009 is thx select select certified
- 1007 has older dcdi video processor, 1009 has new Vida (up to 1080p) and Qdeo (up to 4k) video processors
- 1007 is 10 pounds heavier
- 1009 can do dsx height + wide at same time, 1007 can only do one or the other at same time
- 1009 is hdmi 1.4(3d), 1007 is not

What are the practical implications to the ultra 2 vs. select THX cert?

1009 being 10lbs lighter means the amps are weaker?

I currently run a 7.1 setup, Regarding dsx height+width, this is a would support two additional pairs of front speakers along with standard fronts, surrounds and back surrounds (I guess it would be 11.1)?

You would have to give up the back surrounds to do wides plus heights. You can only do one of wide or heights with your rear surrounds on a 9.1 receiver like the 1007 or 1009.

The amps are objectively weaker in the 1009 but should be no real difference in the real world. There is plenty of great gear out there that isn't thx certified at all.

My 1007 went to the shop so I was looking at the differences as well. Best I can find is select being good for rooms up to 2000 cf and ultra for 3000 and up. Since there are no specs published anywhere I could find online, I deduced that it must be a amp size requirement. Since I use my 1007 as a pre/pro it doesn't bother me.

I saw someone put it this way, every new model seems to get more "features" and less amp rating than the previous model. Seems accurate to me.

I only run 5.1 so maybe someone else can help there. I hope I get a new one too.
post #108 of 343
Well my 1009 came today and is installed waiting for a set of rear speakers then i will do a full sound set up.

Looks very much like the 809 first thought is i like 9.1 just hope the HDMI stays working.

Would prefer a paper manual rather than PDF

If a room has minor acoutsic problems would Audessey XT 32 be any better than just XT? I would assume that XT could fix the small problem so the advanced correction wouldn't be needed. Is this correct?
post #110 of 343
I would think you are correct. Audessey XT 32 is meant to allow for many more test positions that XT.
post #111 of 343
http://www.audyssey.com/audio-technology/multeq

XT and XT32 are both eight positions (unless you enable the pro versions, which can be up to 32 positions). The difference is the much greater filter resolution on XT32, especially on the satellite channels.
post #112 of 343
Thank you for the clarification.
post #113 of 343
What are satellite channels? Surrounds? So then XT32 would sound better than XT in all cases?
post #114 of 343
Has anyone tried a 9 channel setup? So far I'm wired for 7.2 but trying to decide between wides or heights.

Yes, satellite means all channels other than the sub. Properly set up in the exact same room and same speakers, xt32 should have a flatter response then xt, due to increased filter resolution and control points.
post #116 of 343
The TX-NR1009 doesn't have xt32 does it?
post #117 of 343
Upon playing with the home button, I realized I didn't have Audyssey Dynamic EQ activated! Doh!! What a difference!

Everyone, make sure you've gone into the home menu on the remote and turned on Audyssey Dynamic EQ (don't be tempted with dynamic volume though)! What a difference!!!
post #118 of 343
Hi

I have 9.1 and soon will have 11.1 (new sub changed my wiring a little.)

For me if you have rear surrounds and your main use is film i may well go for high. Wides make more overall difference more so with CD.

Height of ceiling and size of room may make some consideration in this

I love the extra speakers i moved from the 809 due to HDMI failures and i am really glad i did.

I've been running 9.1 with highs with this for about a month now no matter if its movies or music etc. wow!!! When its comes to movies an things like rain or any extra elements you can hear alot more detail it pulls you into the movie. Stars wars ep 2 amazing when jango an boba are in the asteriod field!!!

If anyone has the 1009 an only has 7.1 or 7.2 I highly recommend investing in 9.1 or 9.2 you wont regret it!! Just a afterthought
