Thanks to fellow member, Kurt300, I'm the proud new owner of an Onkyo TX-NR818. I've spent all day with it and I'm beginning to understand how awesome this AVR really is. Very pleased with how Audyssey XT32 set everything up. I'm playing around with bass management and have actually gotten my BIC F12 sub to sound a little better than its usual boominess, thanks, in part, to some fellow members' suggestions of plugging the port then running Audyssey. Still got my eye on a HSU VTF-2, though. :) One thing I can't figure out yet is how to use the "Sound Program Edit" but I'm sure I'll figure it out. If anyone is considering this AVR and has any questions, feel free to ask. And to current owners, if you have any tips you'd like to share with me on this piece of equipment, let it fly.
