hi guys, apart from the HDMI 1.4 how does this compare to last years 1910?

Have to say, I considered the 1911 side by side with it's predecessor the 1910, and give the much better input selection on the 1910, can thoroughly recommend that instead. Clearly you loose the 3d capabilities, but if you're ok without that, in my view, a much better buy.

Been doing some web searching, trying to decide between this, and the Onkyo TX-SR608. It seems they're very similar. When I say I've been doing some web searching, what I mean is that I've spent the entire morning on an obsessive hunt for information to differentiate the two items. What I've come up with is this:

1) there seem to be a few reports about poor Onkyo QA and customer service. Of course, that's impossible to cover in a review unless you are unlucky enough to get a faulty unit in the first place, but it's enough to make me nervous.

2) Some people are complaining that the HDMI throughput (or whatever it's called) degrades video quality in the Onkyo.

3)A lot of reports say that the Denon just sounds better. I am drawn towards the fact that the Denon uses Audyessey's MultiEq system for adjusting the accoustics to the room, whereas the Onkyo uses the cut down 2Eq version. I can't help but think that any audio processing that helps take account of the fact that I am going to be using this in a relatively small cluttered living room, and also helps eliminate sweetspots, is going to be of disproportionate value. I'd be interested in the opinion here, of anyone who has had experience of both Audyssey systems.

4) I note that the Onkyo has better connectivity. For me, that's not an issue. I have one PS3, and one TV. Maybe in the future I'll have one YouView box too... I think four HDMI inputs should cover it!

@Bluepork I was in the same situation a couple of years back, The Denon got my cash even though it was the more expensive solution.

I trolled through AVforumns, then travelled to Shropshire to listen and decide which unit to buy.

I read the reviews on the SR608 and the Pioneer in the same price range,decided on the Onkyo, but got a listen to the SR708(didnt have an SR608 in stock) the pioneer and the 1911 in the shop. It was a close call between the the Onkyo and the Denon, the pioneer had no bass through stereo speakers only, didnt do surround sound with a sub for the comparison. The Denon had the edge though, more clarity at all frequencies. As a bonus, the Denon ended up being ~£100.00 cheaper when it came to pay, there seemed to be a round of discounting on that unit at the time. now it's home, I'm totally happy, the auto setup works well.
