Not gonna run 9 channels, I've only got the 2 front floorstanders (Focal 918), and a small sub that I hardly turn on because I live in an apartment.

Don't know whether the XT32 stuff is really worth it, I don't think I've even done the Audyssey Calibration on my TX-SR876. (which is XT).
Main reason why I am upgrading is to get 3D support for TV/Projector. Also, one thing I've noticed is the NR1009 has 4K Upscaling but its not actually advertised much compared to the NR818 etc.
