My 626 was set up yesterday. Working well so far and hope to get my remotes and everything working like before tonight.

I noticed that especially coming from the TX-SR800. I am very pleased with the sound thus far though and the $$ to get to the 727 and THX wasn't worth it for me. My 12 year old 5.1 speaker set up sounds pretty fresh again - maybe because of the calibration?

I just purchased the 626 & love it. My only issue: is there Bluetooth capability in zone 2 (powered) while using a separate input for the main listening area? I know i can use bluetooth in both zones (simultaneously), but cant figure if they can be separated. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Just so you know, I have not tried this - but in past Onkyo's NET and USB were considered the same "input". Bluetooth appears to be the same in this model.
This means you should be able to stream Bluetooth in Zone 2, as long as NET and USB are not used in the main zone. If you use one of those two, the receiver will switch Zone 2 to the same source.

I have the Energy Take 5.0 speaker setup running with a TX-NR708. The sub was upgraded from the one that normally comes with it to the Energy S10.3. It's a great setup and those speakers are a fantastic value for the money.

Also what remote do most of you use or which would you recommend? My setup will mainly consist of a cable box(comcast x1), ps3(doubles as bluray player), xbox 360, and a home theater pc. As far as the tv atm i have a cheap 40" sanyo, but plan on getting a vizio 60" within the next couple months, or hold out a bit longer for the next model thats released.

For an IR remote, I use the stock Onkyo one. I usually use a network-based remote on an iPad when I listen to net sources.
