btw, your statement is wrong - only the 5008 has 32 bit processing... the others are 24bit.
The single DSP processing chip in all, is 32 bit, the individual DAC's for each channel are burr brown 192/24 bit in all, except the 5008--5009 they both have burr brown 192/32 bit DAC's for each channel.
I am not that excited, I am positive, and appreciate the fact that ONKYO gives you more for your money, than most, including high quality, high current power supplies with very large to massive main power transformers.
I am sure, being
audiophiles, that you know how important the power supply and amplifier design is, for best performance and ONKYO does it right, some others cheat in that departmant, SONY's standard line comes to mind, and onkyo's feature set on this years A/V receiver line is second to none, with an excellent onscreen GUI, starting with the entry level midrange TX-NR509, and, as you move up the line, it just keeps getting better and better!
Both the 3009--5009, have 11.2 channel pre-outs and binding post connectors, for up to 11 speakers!
All in/out connectors,front and rear,are gold plated on the TX-NR5009.
Also,the attractive, industrial clean,
fresh art deco
face lift, was a much overdue, welcome change!
ONKYO, as a company, has one major, negative strike against it, The cusomer service is amongst the worst in the business,
it is exact opposite of there product line,
not sure what to make of that.
As a product brand, ONKYO
receivers and amps, remind
me of THOR, very powerfull and strong.
