I orderd a NR-509 (5.1) they billed my for a SR-309 so I waited to see what they sent .
Score! Yesterday I recieved a TX-N609 (7.2)
Nice unit with everything I need and some things I don't. I'll run it in 5.1 to start with but nice to know I have options.
My only dissapointment so far is the remote control won't work on my Samsung HD-DVD player and only does channel, power and volume on my Bravia TV.
The Onkyo system enables me to enter a remote code for the TV, but no remote code exisits for the HD-DVD.
The reciever has CEC so I had hoped interdevice control could be achived via HDMI.
Worst case scenario I have a Logitech Harmony remote somewhere ...
