Dear WHF Team,
Firstly thanks for your great reviews and an excellent website/forums.
I'm in the market for a new AVR and had keen eyes on the Onkyo 3008 and 5008. Now i read reviews for both on your website and you have given sensational 5 stars to both the AVRs.
I was going through their specs on Onkyo website and they both seem to weigh 25 kgs. Only difference being..
A. 24 Bit DACs vs 32 Bit DACs
B. Massive Toroidal Transformer vs Massive Transformer
C. USB at front and back vs. USB at back
So what i'm trying to figure out here is....
1. Did you compare both the AVRs with same set of speakers and movies etc..? Were all other parameters besides the AVR equal ?
2. In what ways is the 5008 sonically superior to the 3008 ?
Thanks in Anticipation.
