It has IIz, so yes.

Yeah, I know the format is dead, but you'll be hard pressed to find a <$150 BD player to beat this playing DVD.

It has IIz, so yes.

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?

With what?

 

On every AVR...the same two channels are...

 

6/7

Height

Zone 2

 

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.


"Everyday room": Panasonic 58" Plasma, Dish HD DVR, Pioneer Elite vsx-23, BDP-23 BR, dv58avi universal dvd player, Paradigm Studio 20 V1, CC-450, Dayton HSU-10 subwoofer.

"Movie/Music room": Toshiba 65" DLP, Dish HD receiver, Marantz 7005, CC-4003, BD-7006, Polk LSI25's-LSi7's-LSiC, 2 original Dayton 10" "Mighty-Mites" subwoofers. (subject to change without notice).
 
Also have  MB Quart Vera VS05 +.....too much to list. Help me.

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.

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.
