hi all!

Let's just say you can get both AV Receivers for the same price, which would you choose and why?

I know on paper, the 809 is clearly superior to the Marantz... but I've been burned by Onkyo before. Bought a new TX-SR806 back in 2009... after just a year of moderate usage, I was already experiencing HDMI issues. After two years (just when warranty expired), the HDMI issues have gone really worse... a few months ago, it completely failed. The receiver still works (analog and SPDIF), but no more HDMI functionality.

Is the 809 having HDMI issues also? Also, I've been hearing about Marantz' superior sound output quality and durability. Need opinion folks =) I purchased both at approximately the same price... one I will keep, the other one I'll return. Thanks in advance!
