I needed to upgrade out of my garbage sony receiver, the Onkyo 809 was on sale at amazon for 446$ so i thought i would snag it, i didn't really want to spend double that for the 818 with the newer version of audyssey
hows the 809 been for anyone that has it?
should be a lot better than my 100WPC at 1khz the sony "put out" haha that thing was cranked and could barely get to 75db with my EMP e5's
the onkyo sure looks big! 17x17 x 7 tall i hope it fits somewhere

Ya looking around the web all weekend the onkyo was mentioned in a post on this site so i checked it out, and has everything i need!, Or want :T
the sony fit the bill to get the wife on the hook! last year on sale for 150$ had HDMI 7.1 and finally
stepped me up into the Blueray+HDtv era, then we listened to some other setups my friends have
and took her to RBH ( just down street from me!) and she sad "Our system doesn't even sound half that good"
haha! so when i told her about the onkyo she asked: can we get overnight shipping?
gotta love that wife :)

I do have a question about the Audio Streaming function on this receiver, Can I have a computer
running on my network ( same network as the 809) and have say a 500gig hard drive with just music on it.
does it have to be running some sort of Media player like windows media 7 or does the onkyo handle that internally?

If this needs to be moved just let me know-
