Ok just got my outdoor speakers and I really like them, but I have already gotten extremely tired of disconnecting a receiver and taking it outside to eventually take it back down. Sooo..... I'm thinking of replacing my onkyo 805 so I can have a dedicated receiver for my outdoor. Anyway, I like the idea of the pioneer airplay, but the video side of the onkyo looks better. Is there much of a dif between the mcacc audio processing and the audyses. I know I butchered that bad but you get the idea. Anyone have any opinions?

JH, personal experience and favorable reports from professional reviewers and home users who've set it up correctly lead me to strongly suggest the 809 with Audyssey MultEQ XT. A very good buy at this time is the Onkyo factory refurb from Accessories4less .

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.
