Glad to see you got your 90 Zook!
I recently compared Netflix streaming from my Panny 500 player and my PS3 and they were very comparable and both very good, so I don't think you will be missing anything with the PS3.
Yup the increased PQ with the 1010 in not a placebo effect thing at all.
It is definitely more noticeable, especially with a good source, but it's an across the board increase to be sure.
I just finally got my system completed and set up this past week (with a lot of help from FastSlappy) and was busy setting up the DSX when the new Xfinity X1 platform commercial with Don Cheadle came on (where he asks for a "Cheadle command") and the PQ running through the Onk 1010 just stunned me!
As you guys know I've had the set for a couple of months now and have had it mounted on the wall for a few weeks, so it's not just a new TV sort of thing, the video processing in the Onkyo 1010 does noticeably improve the PQ.
Here are some pictures of the new layout all complete.
It's the 90" on a Monoprice articulated wall mount.
Klipsch speakers consisting of:
2 RF-7II mains
2 RF-82II wides
1 RC-64 center
2 RS-62II surrounds
4 RW-12D subs
The Onkyo TX-NR1010 as a pre-pro feeding the surrounds
An Emotiva XPA-5 feeding the mains. wides, and center.
A Panny DMP-BDT500 BD player
2 Buttkicker 1000-A amps and 4 Buttkicker LFE transducers under the seating.
And a PS3
The whole system is right at 6680 watts ....... RMS!! (although 5400 of those watts are the subs and Buttkickers)
And here's my old Home Theater system ...... Edited by Flyer91 - 5/28/13 at 11:18pm
