Bottom Line:   
ik heb deze onkyo tx-ds939 integra in 2011 gekocht voor 400 euro 2 jaar geleden. ik moet eerlijk zegen wat een beest van een versterker en het geluid is net zo helder als in een goede bioscoop mits je er de goeie speakers voor hebt ik zou hem nooit meer inruilen voor een andere av receiver pre out uitgangen zijn ook geweldig ik heb er een eindversterker aanhangen waar ik 2 subwoofer op heb aangesloten van ieder 700 watt r.m.s een hele goeie bass weergaven net zo goed als in de bioscoop en de meetmicrofoon is ook er handig om je speakers op de kamer af te stellen ik hou van mijn onkyo tx-ds939

Bottom Line:   
Well , my story with this receiver is quit complex but first I must say that I had this unit for a year and a half . Got it from authorized dealer in Israel .
At first I had no problem at all . It is a great unit,( the only receiver Onkyo has beside the 989 that runs more then 100W under 0.05% THD)This is very impressive .
Compared to the 838 I had before , this unit has more dynamic range and a better damping factor which will give you more accurate sound and a great punch.
THX processing is great but do your self a favor and turn off the dialogue normalization feature .
This feature is somehow,compress the dynamic range and lower all channel volume to compare to the center volume.
On screen display is very clear. even my mom can set up this unit .
Fan is quiet and will work only under heavy load .
A great feature is the 2 subwoofer outputs .when connecting them both to my subwoofer,I get more powerfull sound,
(I checked with one output and a Y cable – it’s not the same )
The remote however,like other said,is very disappointing, Yes it’s a learning remote , but an ugly one and does not have a backlight. I got a touch screen learning remote instead for only 100$ .
I noticed that when using the composite video connection
(not that you need to),there is a slight interference in the picture when the On screen Display is turned on and off.
(never happened in SVHS).
Strange thing about the 5.1 Inputs , where is the sub input ? do I need to connect the sub
Directly to an external decoder when using one ?
So how can I change the level ? I don’t get it .
The lack of digital inputs is another thing you need to consider.Only 3 input ( one coax 2 optical).
The price in Israel is an outrage , but there is nothing we can do about it .
actually , there is nothing else bad you can really say about this unit.
My problems began ( and I don’t blame Onkyo for that) when I upgraded the unit to include the MSB internal DTS Card).
From that moment and on , things started to go wrong .
Strange noises when using analog inputs , test tone cuts off , inability to run the Analyzer setup ,
Hum and hiss from center speaker when connecting SVSH cable from DVD ( never happened in composite ), and more then 2 seconds of detecting time when using a digital signal .
Most of the problems were solved after a couple of visits at the store , but this is not a unit that you want to carry more then once ( accept the one time when you buy it ) .
The ground connections inside the unit where change , also some changes in the DTS card were made .
Any how , DTS works fine now , great sound , but to tell the truth , If I had the ability to make the DTS upgrade decision again , I would not done it again .
Buy an external decoder if you want to upgrade , don’t mess with the unit, it’s not worth it .

Setup consist of :
Receiver Onkyo TX-DS 939 + DTS MSB internal card
2109 Toshiba DVD
34` Toshiba Flat screen TV (model 34N9)
B&W 603S3 main speakers
B&W CC3 Center Speakers
B&W 303 Surrounds speakers
A custom made subwoofer . (with 2 membrane) 100W class A Amp.
All connections made with Monster cable .
