I went from a 5507 to a 5509. Worth it if you can get a good deal.
The 5507 has really good music sound quality but 5509 improves things further with XT32 and especially now that it lets you select the Music Audyssey EQ. Denon/Marantz had this option for years so it's good Onkyo has it now.
Usability is also improved, the Audyssey EQ, dynamic EQ and Dynamic volume can be set per source now.
There's a Home button on the remote that lets you easily get at various settings like listening modes so no longer have to cycle through every single mode to get from PLII to stereo.
OSD is easier to read.
The relays are silent now. No clicks when changing channels on the sat box although that never bothered me anyway.
