Crap! I started typing on my phone and didnt mean to actually start the thread yet. Embarrassing. Oh well, my main two concerns are reliability and lag time.
The 709 seems like a lot more AVR for the money however my perception is Denons have less problems than Onkyos.
Lag time between switching sources is another concern. Which AVR switches faster between HDMI sources?
If reliability and lag are equal then I will go with the Onkyo 709.
