So there's only 10w/ch difference between the two. Is the 1010 worth the $250 higher price tag? I would mainly be using it for HT use in our dedicated movie room. I'm using these as my main speakers http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio...e=model#page=2
For the surrounds I'm using the NS-333's and the NS-C444 center channel speaker. It looks like the 1010 has a phono input, s-video and HD radio but none of those features are important for where it will be used.

If I could afford the 2010 that's what I would do too, but it is out of my price range. The 1010 is about my limit.

Do the 810 and 1010 use the same video chip? If so does anyone know what it is? I know the 2010 and 2000 use the HQV Vida video processing. Is the HQV Vida that much better?

Would the Onkyo TX-NR809 be in the same class as the 810? They are both around the same price. The 809 is selling for quite a bit under its MSRP while the Yamaha not so much.

The Onkyo 809 is more like the A20x0 than anything lower in the Yamaha line (I have an A1000 and I would place it in the same category as a 709).
