Hi, I own an 875. I think that holding out for the 905 might be prudent. It has HD radio, Internet connectivity, and a better amplifier section. That being said, I do love the 875. The Reon does wonders at improving the sd picture from Directv. I set the HDMI output to 1080P and I am blown away by the improvement. My XBR2 did a pretty good job on its own resolving 1080i. With the 875 and the Reon chip set, jaggies have been reduced to virtual nothingness. I find the colors and depth to be jaw dropping. The combination of the Sony XBR, PS3 with Blu Ray player and the Onkyo TX-SR875 with good cables from Audioquest and Better Cables. The Better Cables Silver Serpent HDMI is a killer bargain.
