My 3009 after at least a couple of hours on fluctuates between 33 and 34c. I'm currently using a cooler master laptop fan, I think the model is the x slim, it has a 160mm fan. Mind you I am in Canada so I'm not sure how it will be during the summer time.

12V trigger is only operational for zone 2 and 3.
Only the preamp PR-SC5509 has a trigger for zone 1 too.

I am thinking about getting the Niles FM-1 cooler.It is around $300.00. A local dealer tells me they are great & very durable. I would hope so for that much money.
Anybody know anything about them??

I use one of these "green" power bars to trigger my cooling fan since the newer Onkyos don't have switched outlet in the back. It works like a charm, I'm sure that will work for the external amp, just have it in the switched on position all the time.

I use my Harmony One to turn on Zone 2 when it powers up my receiver. Not sure that would help you...

I am using a Tripplite smart strip. They are awesome, using USB in rear for fans. I grabbed a splitter and have two 120mm fans going.

the auto power strip worked but the emo only goes into standby mode you still have to manually turn it on .

If I use the trigger from zone 2 to the emo how does that work to turn it on I am sure I do not under stand. I am tring to use the emos 12v from the onk 12v out to turn on the amp for the main l/r channels. I have a universal remote you mean if I program that to turn on zone two I will still be able to turn on the emo from my remote and listen to 9.2. I hate to sound dense attribute it to age.

Yes

With the Harmony (not sure if your remote will do the same) you can teach' it commands using the Onkyo remote. I taught' it the Onkyo commands to turn on and off zone 2 and added those commands to the startup/shutdown for the receiver.

Now when I use the Harmony One to turn on the receiver, the 12v trigger connected to zone two turns on the amp and shuts it off again when I shut it down.

does doing this effect the use of any speaker pairs like use of the back. Or I will ask this do you use a 9.2 system in your theater area?

In case anybody might be interested I did buy the Niles FM-1. The system has been running for about 4 hrs & has evened out at 27c. I dont have the receiver inclosed & I cant hear the fans running.

Nice....but man that thing is pricey

I think I sort of figured out how to turn on the power amp using zone two with the 3009 remote. I press the zone two button red than press the rec power button turns emo from standby to on than press rec and power turns amp on all works well to shut down turn rec off hit zone two button red than power turns back to standby. It is a couple lf extra steps but beats getting up and down walking over to system to turn emo on and off. Any opinions. Seems to have no effect on speakers when it is taken out of zone op . just using the zone two to turn power am on and off. Tell me if this is nuts.

I will be reviewing the 5509 soon and expect pretty much the same performance as the 3009.

I know I've seen it before but I can't seem to find it. What are the differences between the 3008 and 3009?
Thanks for any info.

I'll try not to. I am expecting absolutely no performance differences between it and the 80.3. Pretty much the same as using the 3009 as a pre-pro.

DTS NEO X, better video processing using the Vida chip by HQV, future 4K processing and the newer gen seems to run less warmer.

More like using the 5009 as a pre-pro, no?

I would say the 3009 has a lot of what the 5509 and 80.3 have. Ive had them both in the same exact spot but I am sure there might be a couple minor specs but for the most part the sound was very close. Is there something alarming I am missing?

Not that its major...but I believe the video processing and 32bit dac is shared with the 5009, 80.3 and 5509. I believe those three units are straight apples to apples as far as features.

I could be wrong.

I am very curious about xlr vs RCA on these units.

Video processing is exactly the same. Both have the Kyoto Marvell chip for 4K and both have the same Vida HQV chip for 1080p. DACs is 32 versus 24. That is the only difference In specs I have noticed. Of course will most rooms be able to hear a difference between them?

You are right.

Looking at the Onkyo USA site and comparing the 3009 and 5009 the only differences are the transformers (does not effect 5509 or 80.3), powered zone 2 (does not effect 5509 or 80.3) and 32 bit Dac.

That's it. Glad I got a good price on my 5009. Could have gotten (still could) an even better price on the 3009.

I am only using the 5009 to drive my surrounds. My 7 channel Sherbourn is driving my front 3.

Yes I am currently using 7 amps to drive three speakers.

So we could use the 80.3, 5509, 5009 and 3009 with pretty much the same results as a pre-pro.

My 3009 is being used in my 15x23' room with a emo upa2 and marantz MA-500 mono amp for the front 3. The int amps for the other surrounds. and two big subs. I am loving this 3009 my third Onkyo. Had the 5007 and 5008 This is the first receiver I feel might be a long time in my rack no real complaints. Only wish there was a way to do 11.2 other than that it has mosy everhthing you could wish for. The video processing it the best ever for a receiver.
