Default Which Onkyo to Replace My Present One

My tx-sr804 is having audio processor problems and I am debating replacing rather than repairing. When it was new it was one of their better pieces but now that it is dying have there been enough advancements in technology to make a new mid-range Onkyo worth considering?

I am not a big movie watcher so dazzling video performance isn't high on the list but I do appreciate good audio. The 804 has multi channel input capability which I need for my SACD player and I haven't found that in many of the new receivers.

Opinions are welcomed.

I would stay far away from allllllllll their 2012 models. They are extremely defective. All have an HDMI board issue and Onkyo can't figure it out. If you can get one of the now hard to find 2009 models get the Onkyo 809. Otherwise all Onkyo's this year are pure crap. Get a Denon 2313ci or 3313ci. Matter of fact I believe you can get last years onkyo tx-nr1009 for a pretty good price on Amazon ($839), and they have an even better deal on the 3009thales are both extremely good receivers and are one and two steps up from last years 809. But trust me when I tell you this do not get a 2012 onkyo. You'll instantly regret it. Unfortunately Onkyo year after years Quality Control is getting worse and worse.
