Denon 3313 vs Onkyo 818

I am undecided whether to purchase the 818 w/135 watts or the 3313 w/125watts.

Will be powering 2 RTI A9's and CSIA4 center w/sw112 sub. Tv is 55" 240 hz 3D Samsung.

Goals quality sound and video for movies and music.

I would like to keep the avr cost around $1000.00.

I appreciate you input.

The Onkyo 818 has Audssey MultEQ XT32 and Denon3313 has Audssey MultEQ XT.

I read the XT32 is a nice upgrade, but I'm concerned about defects in Onkyo 818.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

I know a couple people have purchased the 818 and seem to really be enjoying it

I like the 135 watts per channel pluses the Audssey XT32, but read some reviews about defects.

Also interested in Denon 3313, less power 125 watts, Audssey Mult EQ. USING 1 sub Klispch SW-112.

Re: Denon 3313 vs Onkyo 818

I would personally buy separates. You can get an Emotiva UMC-200 for $499, then add a UPA-500 for $349 or go all out with a XPA-5 for $899. Should beat on either of those receivers.

Re: Denon 3313 vs Onkyo 818

If going with receivers I'd go with the Denon. The last few Onkyo's I had always had difficulty with HDMI audio dropping. (I have not owned or tested either of the models you listed)
