I hesitated when it dropped to $427 hoping it would go lower as well. However, upon looking last night it had climbed to $469. I went to online chat through Amazon's customer service/help section and after 1hr of chatting was able to have them honor the $427 price. In addition to this, I was able to coax them into awarding me with $30 in Amazon gift cards!

I was planning on buying a NR-709 from A4L for $449. Now the 809 is 477 and I am considering buying it instead. The problem is it won't fit in my TV stand (to tall). Looking in my gallery at the first picture, would it hurt my sound if I moved the center channel speaker to below where it is now and put the 809 where the center speaker is(on the top shelf)?

Or leave everything where it is and go with the 709?

Go with the 809 , just angle the center up a few degrees. My center is damn near on the floor and I have no issues.
Or build a small stand and put the center above the receiver (probably the best way to go , being that the center would be closer to ear level).

Can someone who owns an 809 measure the actual height of it and post it?

Thanks

Just measured my 1009 (uses same chassis as 809) it is 7 25/32". Onkyo states 7 13/16" for the 809 and 1009. You could round it to 7 3/4"

I own the 809, and counting the feet on it, it measures 7 11/16" high, according to my tape measure.

If you have to measure to make sure it will fit you don't have enough space for adequate air flow to dissipate heat.
I'm sure people have squeezed these in to tight places and what not but...


Following is a direct quote from the owners manual...

"18.
If you install the apparatus in a built-in installation,

such as a bookcase or rack, ensure that there is

adequate ventilation.
Leave 20 cm (8") of free space at the top and sides and
10 cm (4") at the rear. The rear edge of the shelf or
board above the apparatus shall be set 10 cm (4")
away from the rear panel or wall, creating a flue-like


gap for warm air to escape"

Thanks for the measurements everyone. I will get the NR-709. Besides the power, there doesn't seem to be too much difference between the 2 AVR's.

I can use the money I save on the 709 to buy some HDMI cables.

Stick with the 809 and purchase your cables from a trusted and highly recommended company like Monoprice or Blue Jeans Cable. You'll be amazed at what you can get for your money.

The 809 won't fit in my tv stand. Monoprice was where I planned to buy hdmi cables.

So, what's the verdict on the Onkyo 809? My Denon 2106 finally died last friday night . So I had to go back to my older Onkyo TX-SR602. I'm on the market for a replacement. I've been researching several Onkyo and Denon receivers. I've narrowed it down to either of these so far:

1. Onkyo TX-NR808/809
2. Onkyo TX-NR709/717
3. Denon AVR-3808ci/3310ci
Display - Sammy HLT-6176S 61" DLP & LG 42PJ350 42" Plasma - Receiver - Onkyo TX-NR809 7.2 - Processor - Behringer FBQ1502 15-Band Stereo Graphic Equalizer - Front Stage - Polk Audio Mon 70 series II - Center - Polk Audio Tsi CS20 - Side Surround - Polk Audio Mon 70 series II - Rear Surround - Polk Audio Mon 40 series II - Subs - (2) Polk Audio PSW 505 & (2) Dayton/Infinity (hybrid subs) - Media Players - PS3 320GB Slim, XBox 360 250GB & Dish Sat Hopper with Sling DVR

Actually it's a 7.2, but with pre-outs for 9.2 if you add an external amp. Still a good choice and if in no hurry, prices on new units has went as low as mid $600 a while ago, might be worth waiting a bit, just in case, and if not A4L is a good choice.

You know what though, even if it's one step higher the 1007 being entry premium, I believe from what all I read, the newer capabilities, 4k passthrough, equal or even better video and audio processing, it has been said in many places that Onkyos latest generation had a fairly big step up in audio quality than previous releases, so I would def go 818, you can get a cheap Behring studio amp for less than $200 shipped. It would actually be more powerful than the other ch, only it's possible to redirect front mains to the amp, I don't know but somehow I guess you can't. Still a better buy for me, all nice and new for not much more

I've also been looking at that Onkyo 1007 from A4L, along with the 809 and 818. Not sure what I want to do, but at this point, I may just wait on the 818 to come down some more for the Audyssey XT32.

How much are you looking to spend, I've been thinking about putting my TX-NR1009 up for sale, to help fund a receiver or preamp that is 11.x capable.
