I've been eyeballing the Onkyo 929 that was due to come out since they announced it, mostly out of upgradeitis. Sadly, my TX-NR1007 finally decided to fall prey to the dreaded HDMI board death last weekend... and while I know Onkyo will supposedly fix that problem for free if you hound them about it, I just didn't have that kinda' time, 'cause my DVR is filling up and my projector is my only display.
Of course, when I went looking to replace it, the 929 isn't out yet. So today, I'll be the proud new owner of an open box TX-NR3010 from Onecall. Should be a healthy upgrade from the 1007 (DTS: NeoX! Audyssey XT32! Separate transformers for audio/video! Cooler OSD!), so I'm very excited!
(Naturally, because my life is filled with funny moments, after I received the e-mail that my 3010 will arrive today, I also received an e-mail from Onkyo that the 929 is now shipping. Oh well... The 3010 is a higher end model anyway, and I don't see the 929 having any features that the 3010 doesn't have.)
P.S. - If I get Onkyo to replace the HDMI board on the 1007, expect it to end up on the market here at a pretty reasonable price. I'm gonna call 'em once I get the 3010 all set up and see what hoops I have to jump through to make that happen.
