im caught in a hard decision. i have the opportunity to purchase a brand new onkyo 1009 for $599.00 or Onkyo 818 for $849. is it worth it for me to spend the extra 250 dollars on the Onkyo 818? i have not found one review that compares both or whether the 818 is worth the extra 250 dollars in this case. i have read every single review imaginable on all the websites but cant really come up with an answer. Can anyone give their input and or experience with these? so far it seems to me that the 1009 is the better choice based on the price i can pick it up for, but someone told me at the store that the 818 is a better unit? is it THAT MUCH better that it justifies the extra 250 dollars?
thanks for any advice you can give me!
