The 3010 has fans in it for the heatsinks but i do not know what temp they are activated.
Ive tried front high and front wide..I like the wide better.

Why not use them both?

I would assume the heights more than the wides are really dependent on the soundtrack in movies.  If the matrixing software is written to extract information from the other channels that would be appropriate for sound sources high and overhead other than some horror or action/adventure/scifi there probably isn't much going on to put into those channels except for perhaps for the effect of rain.  At least this was my thinking for installing heights and wides and waiting for the tech to allow back surrounds as well because those are the bulk of my movie watching genres.

We just watched Lucky Number Slevin and both kept commenting how clear the dialogue was and all the little things we could here and we'd seen this movie a good 6 times before.

Why can't you do both, as intended?

The videoprozessors are the real heat generating circuits, not the heat sink of the amps.
Those amp heatsinks have their own double fans sitting in front of them, one on each side.

The remote control app for the droid is legit. It's pretty to cool to change all that you can walking around the house. It even plays music from my phone wirelessly.

XT32 really has everything balanced right and I get none of the bright/harsh sound that are often a complaint about klipsch speakers. I left Audyseey crossover settings with my fronts at 40hz to see if the amp could do all right with that and it sounds fantastic. Once again, I havent needed to touch the sub levels. I would like to try the bi-amp option again and may store my current settings to try bi-amp. right now Im very very happy.

Good to read that you enjoy your new machine smile.gif! Have you tried the bi-amping option again on your second 3010? I am very interested in the results since I would like to use this feature also on my soon to be ariving 5010 (which is, as a wrote before, a replacement-deal with Onkyo for my 5007 which suffered from the notoriuous HDMI-board problem).
post #278 of 1066
I havent tried the biamp option anymore. I only tried it for about 15 minutes on the first one....then about 5.5 hours without. If Bi amping didnt make you lose front high/wide i would still be using it. We watched Thor last night at -5 volume.......not a single hiccup other than my daughter saying it got way too loud smile.gif

How about an Integra DTR 80.3 for under the current price of the NR3010 smile.gif I think I too know what I should go for, your review is awaited.

57 hours on my 3010 now. Im trying out 7.2 with front l/r...side surround l/r and rear surround l/r and will post my impressions. I have played this thing loud in 7.2 mode a lot and it seems SOLID.

Plan to release it today. We had a miscarriage last week and my Wife ended up having surgery so I didn't work on it most of last week. The week before she was hospitialized a few days for excessive bleeding. I had planned on having it out about 10 days ago but ended up not spending much time in the theater.

Wow! Total lurker here, but felt like I had to post how sorry I am to hear that. From experience there is not much tougher emotionally for a woman. I hope and pray that your Wife recovers in all ways as fast as possible. Again so sorry.
post #284 of 1066
Sorry to hear that Joe. I hope you and your wife are doing OK.
We really appreciate your reviews. Hopefully you will be able to release your review soon but if you don't no worries. I went through the same situation with my wife many years ago and it was not easy (first baby too).
God Bless you!

A little thing I learned with the 3007 that works for the 3010. If you pull the microphone out before the calibration is completely done...for whatever reason...and then go to calibrate later, it will sometimes not give you crossover settings for one or more of your speakers that look right. My center is rated at 65hz-20khz but Audyssey kept picking 120-150hz though in the past it has picked 40-60hz. First you do the CLEAR procedure

Hardware Reset/Factory Default
To reset the AV receiver to its factory defaults, turn it on and, while holding down the [VCR/DVR] button, press the [ON/STANDBY] button. "Clear" will appear on the display and the AV receiver will enter Standby mode.

The AV receiver contains a microcomputer for signal processing and control functions. In very rare situations, severe interference, noise from an external source, or static electricity may cause it to lockup. In the unlikely event that this happens, unplug the power cord from the wall outlet, wait at least five seconds, and then plug it back in again.

I unplug the 3010 for about 15 seconds after doing the CLEAR procedure and this always gets me back to normal settings when doing Audyssey calibration.

I havent found anything listed here for the 3007 http://www.avsforum.com/t/1192172/the-onkyo-tx-nr3007-tx-nr5007-common-questions-issues-hints-answers-thread that doesnt work for the 3010. the VCR button on the 3007 is now the another button on the 3010....tv/cd i think

Thanks everyone. We both appreciate the support. smile.gif

Working on the last part now. smile.gif
post #289 of 1066
Hi all, I posted this in the shorter "unveiling" thread, but I would have stopped here if I coulda' found the darn thing, lol.

Anyway:

Hola all:

Can someone verify/correct me on something? If my recollection is ok, I seem to remember the Onkyo XXX7 and XXX8 series AVRs getting fantastically reduced- perhaps not immediately- but somewhere down the road they got somewhere near 50-60% of their original MSRP's. (?)

But then came the XXX9's and- again unless I'm mistaken- they seemed to never see the substantial drop offs in price. Certainly didn't remain at list of course, but you simply weren't going to be picking up a 3009 for ~$13-1400 like I distinctly recall seeing the 3008 going for. And there wasn't really much in the groundbreaking changes dept between them, to boot (?...again, if memory serves).

Basically I guess I'm just wondering if anyone has any insight on this current crop. I realize no one has a crystal ball, but I'm hoping this general economy- combined with a little bit of favorable Onkyo AVR price history- may make the 3010 available for around 15-$1600 somewhere no-so-far down the road.

Of course I have a perfectly useful and excellent-performing Denon 4311, but what fun would it be to keep it and go without useless 4k upscaling and DTS Neo X?! tongue.gif;)biggrin.gif

At the same time, even I'm not desperate (or thick) enough to take a few hundred dollar bath on the Denon and pay $2,000+ on a unit that really doesn't come anywhere near justifying spending another $1,000 (over the Denon 4311).

My hope was that the 43111 would stick around and put a bit of pressure on these, but if indeed it's getting phased out and the Denon 4520 (at ~$2500) becomes the new placeholder, that hope is all-but extinguished of course and the 3010 will by default become the least expensive 11 channel option.

Time will tell of course, just wondering if someone has any additional insight or ???

thanks

James

Joe, this comparison is pretty trivial compared with what you and your wife have been dealing with. Be sure and deal with that situation above all else!!

I feel your pain since we went trough the same many years ago. But my wife quickly was pregnant again. And today, we are givving driving lessons to the lovely thing that came from that birth. Seeing my doughter born was by far the greatest thing ever. Such is life... Spend as much time with your wife as possible.
post #294 of 1066
Sorry to hear the news Joe. Hope you and the missus are doing well.

Look forward to the review whenever you get a chance, but as others have said, it's not a priority. Take care.

I wasn't able to be as thorough as I planned but never the less here's what I ended up with. Last thing I will say is Onkyo sure has some heavy Receivers.

Sorry to hear about the family tragedy, Joe. I hope your wife is physically okay - that has to be excruciatingly difficult mentally & spiritually.

Take your time with the professional stuff - sounds like you have a lot more important things to think about.

God bless.

Appreciate your post. Both of us do. smile.gif

BTW, I forgot to add my rating system scores at the bottom. I took into consideration features, specs and overall sound quality and builds. I will add it in a bit.
post #298 of 1066
Joe,

Thank you for your review/comparison. It helped reaffirm my decision to keep my 5009 (at least until next year when the 5010 drops in price). After making the jump from a Yamaha RX-A3010 and starting with a TX-NR809 and pretty much trying everything 1009, 3009. I'm glad I settled with the 5009 and discovering Audyssey (love it). Oh! one last thing could you ask Onkyo to add a button like on the side or something to be able to illuminate the remote on command (not having to push enter or any key to do so) unless they want to add like a motion sensor. I use a Harmony 1100 but I think it would be a nice feature especially on models like 3009/3010 and up.

Once again wish you the best to you and your wife and hoping a new Angelito is on its way for you soon.

God Bless!

Jaime

Thanks a lot. smile.gif And yes I will mention it to them. Good idea. The 5009 is definitely worth keeping. I am in the same boat as you! I added my Receiver Rating System...

Nice comparison. I have an NR3008 and can't decide whether to upgrade to the 5010, or whether to add some power amps (Emotiva XPA-5 and XPA-2 or a single NAD M25), or get a PR-SC5509 processor to go with a power amp (or amps). I don't imagine the differences will be huge after an upgrade, but it's still a head-scratcher!
