Summary: One of the great things about modern AVRs is that they can be upgraded after purchase. If you check out the Onkyo support website (http://www.intl.onkyo.com/support/firmware/tx-nr929.html) you can see that the company has issued four firmware fixes for the 929! Not bad, eh?
Summary: I ordered this receiver around 6 months ago. Overall this is a good receiver. Pros: Amazing sound 9 channels Good power No overheating or HDMI issues... yet Good a/v sync feature with 5ms delay increments. All inputs have independent settings (this goes for most settings).
Summary: my third onkyo receiver since 2010. bought less than a month ago and just returned it with similar HDMI board audio loss as my previous purchases. to onkyo's credit they did repair my previous receivers and I do like all the features and they sound great when working.

Summary: I purchased this to power my whole house audio system - as it turns out I ended up using it to power my home theater. This is a monster of a receiver with a ton of power. It has some great features, but it is already outdated, but not terribly. Why Onkyo hasn't released the TX-NR939, I don't know.
