I did do the update went well just have not really had time to check things out yet. Some times the do other fixes but do not include them in the information statements.


Speaking of which, any information about next gen Onkyo having 11.2 and when does next gen come out?

Aside from the Audyssey Pro and a longer warranty on the Integra's, are there any other differences between the 80.3 / 70.3 and the 5009 / 3009? I'm curious why the 3009 weighs more than the 70.3 by 5 lbs. Also I like the aesthetics of the 3009 better than the 70.3 so I would prefer to buy the 3009 but I'm trying to figure how the Integra could be more money by a $100?

The lower models very shortly the top tier probable mid late summer and no I am not aware of new features like 11.2 . There are some video and processing up grades I think.

aside from what you said the biggest difference for me is that the Integra's are graced with assignable triggers where as the Onkyos only get zone 2 and 3 triggers. If you plan on running external amps the Integra is the way to go.

In Europe the 5009 / 3009 are included in the Audyssey Pro capable list.
Thus no difference here. The latest firmware a few days ago does it for those models.

I there an easy way to switch between light, medium, heavy dynamic volume or do I have to go into the menus?

Sounds like what the recall is about although the 3009 is not included yet.

I am sure the 3009 was supposed to be on the list as well.

Any idea if this includes Integra models as well?

I also second your ovservation here. Too bad for Onkyo as this is the second generation something similar has happened. Although I purchased mine in October so I know the manufacture was before, and have not had those kind of issues it makes me apprehensive about the long term life of these units. If I read this now before buying I probably might look elsewhere.

Joe Are you aware of any processing changes make in the last firmware that might have improved the auddessey calibration. There is definately a change in mine and it is not placebo. This is a good thing. and Still no major firmware upgrades yet. Still looks like they just are issuing fixes nothing new.

Just called Onkyo, and apparently the 3009 is excluded from the recall.
post #343 of 464
I have a 709 & a 3009. The 709 serial# checked out ok. If I were buying now I too like william06 would probably look elsewhere.

Just to make sure I entered my 3009 serial number and it said that my receiver isn't part of it. I must be really lucky with my Onkyo purchases as my 3009 and my 805 before it have been issue free. Knock on wood.

Wello nice to know 3009 not included (yet) could be different mfg location or not manufactured at the time others were. Interesting.

When I go to the Onkyo support page I have to choose a model# then put in the serial#. The 3009 is not listed. Iwould like to check my 3009 serial#. How do I do it?

I just selected that I had a 5009 and entered my serial number.

Thanks. I just tried that & I came out all right.

Thanks again.

I find it very suspicious the 3009 is not included! My new 3009 is doing exactly as the recall described!

Hi, what is your serial number?
post #351 of 464
Unfortunately nothing is been stated what is exactly responsible for the callback, so i t would be a wild guess, what those different models have in common. Could be a local issue (plant location) or specific parts used in only some of the units at the time of production (production run).
Who knows ?

My 5009 is not part of the recall and my digits are 19 also.
post #355 of 464
Hmm, maybe the scope of the problem involves more units than Onkyo knows. Or I just got unlucky and had a unit with the exact same symptoms but unrelated to the recall. If I would have seen the recall before I order the replacement, I would have gone with a different avr. Either way, if the second unit has so much as a hiccup its going back. Too much money to have these problems. Sad because I have had many Onkyo AVR and never an issue.

Hi A&M 350Z, its possible no 3009 owners are calling in the problem.

My 3009 is also 19. The recall says units made in November,December & January.
I dont have the problem yet. I just wonder if Onkyo is being truthful about all units affected by whatever the problem is?
post #358 of 464
I havent checked my S# but I purchased mine in October. So at this point it should be okay. Fingers crossed.
post #359 of 464
I tried hooking up a RCA input from my laptop in the 3009's Phono RCA red and white on the back of the receiver and I get a garbled or messed up sound. Move it over to TV/CD and no problems.

Anyone else have this issue??

I did a few factory resets, left the power cord unplugged for a while and stll the same problem.
post #360 of 464
Lightning hit my TX NR906 and I'm thinking hard about getting the 3009. There are no places close by that sells this unit. Where is a good place to get on online? Do you guys pay retail?

One other thing, is the 906 Onkyos red headed step child? I thought it was a great sounding unit. But I never hear anything about it. No firmware updates or anything mentioned in forums.
