I love my 805. It is everything I want in a processor. I don't use the amps in it. I don't use HDMI (yet) since my current RP-HDTV takes only component. It is a steal for the money.

Thanks, Tgrisham. Do you have any experience with Yamaha to the point you could compare their sonic signature? I've read the Onkyo is brightish, which generally matches my tastes. I'm listening to the Yamaha right now through a pair of PremierAcoustic PA-4.2 Monitors and an old Onkyo HTIB Sub. It's not a pretty set-up, but it's all that survived the power surge, and the sound is not all that bad.
I'm almost completely convinced into getting the 805. Anybody want a Yamaha RVX659?
I used to run onkyo and have set up a ton of yamahas and onkyo, I dont find the onkyo bright, more accurate and punchy. When it needs to get loud even the base model wont dissapoint, also its very very easy to set up and change stuff if you want, Yahmaha doesnt sound bad just not as intresting, and definatly more difficult to set up!!! By FAR!!!!!!!!!!!
