Sorry, I'm too lazy to look up the Audyssey version in the Onk 616, (I'm sure you've done that but just forgot to mention it), but if it's 2EQ, then you have to know that there is no equalization for the subwoofer channel. So, Denon is your choice if you'd like to have deep, smooth and even bass in your HT system.
Edit: OK I got over my laziness and saw that the Onk 616 has 2EQ. It's up to you to decide (or do more research!).Edited by mogorf - 3/15/13 at 1:06pm
