If you need a good 2.0 system...
Do you guys know if you can run front highs off the 9400?
For your bedroom TV...
It has IIz, so yes.
Here you go.
Yeah, I know the format is dead, but you'll be hard pressed to find a
I'm gonna cry now...
So if I were to run IIz could I buy 2 extra matching bookshelves, or do you have to relocate rears to front highs?
The 9400 only has 7 channels. So you get 6/7 or height.
An AVR that allows 7.1+ height, by itself, is $1000.
Currently the lowest priced "new" one...
Do you know of any workaround that employs the use of the zone 2 in order to incorporate front highs?
Can I run the powered zone 2 as the front highs?
On every AVR...the same two channels are...
Depending on what you assign them to do in the setup menu.
The 616/626 have what is called "intelligent amp design"(have no idea if the AVR with the 9400 does or not...not looking either).
IAD is the AVR has more speaker terminals than it has channels. So, you could hook up...
6/7, height and Zone 2...and choose between them on the fly(assuming the AVR you pick has this many speaker terminals).
I gotta be honest I'm really leaning towards buying the S9400. A4L just emailed me to notify of 1 being available for $599
The speakers in the 9400 aren't that bad. About on par with Polk Monitor 30's maybe? Better then the other Onkyo systems for sure. The sub's about the same as a PE 12"er. You could do worse for $600 and finding a receiver, seven speakers and a 12" sub for $600 (with a warranty) would be tricky.
I've owned this system for a year now. I'm not a big audio expert by any means, but I will say that I love this system. The sound fills my 12' x 18' room very nicely. It has a ton of features and settings. I was lucky to get the system new for $599. If you're on a budget and looking for a top of line HTIB then I highly recommend the Onkyo HT-S9400THX 7.1.
Cogs4ever where did u purchase?
I got it on Newegg, however I've noticed it's out of stock. Amazon usually has comparable pricing but I see that it's going for $999 right now. I'd wait and keep checking. The price seems to fluctuate often. If you see it for $5-799, I'd grab it.
