Currently have an Onkyo 809, its not that old and so far its working fine, but the history of HDMI issues and Onkyos lack of customer service are a little scary.
Has anyone replaced a newer Onkyo with this 1222-K? The Newegg price is really tempting, but I think Ill miss the nice OSD the Onkyo has, and I might actually have to change furniture (the Onkyo is tight side to side right now, and I know the Pio has a fan on the left side). Wondering if its worth the extra 100 or so to return the Onkyo and get the 1222.
Sound-wise Im satisfied with the Onkyo (granted, havent used it a ton since I got it), it would strictly be an "upgrade" for reliability (its nice that the Pio puts out more power when fully driven, but my speakers are efficient enough its not a HUGE selling point)
EDIT: one more thing - I noticed the Pioneer only has a single global xover value. My rear surround speakers are tiny little cubes (NOT Bose, FWIW
), so they probably cant handle an 80Hz xover value. Would I really have to set every single speaker to a high value? (Right now Audyssey picks up 150Hz for those little cubes) I cant see setting everything for 150 and it actually sounding nice.
Thanks in advance.
