Who creates a receiver that doesn't do sound thru HDMI?

J. pierce, Amazon
9 November 2013
  • Summary: Why would a AUDIO receiver process Video but not Audio through the HDMI port? This is absurd!!! Using my Windows Media center as my home theater and the only quality audio source is my HDMI which is fine but this piece of S*** won't process it. It's useless.

  • Summary: it worked for about 3 months.......totaly disappointed! Definitely wouldn't recommend it. I wasn't satisfied at all, if I wasn't so busy at the time I would of sent it back even if they didn't give me a refund. It is still collecting dust with the rest of the junk!

  • Summary: I purchased the AVR-1709 in January of 2009. Got it, set it up, very happy with it for about 4 weeks. One night while watching tv, there's a deafening sound that actually blows the cover off 3 of my wall speakers. The receiver stops making sound the next day.

Returned

A. Mead, Amazon
16 September 2009
  • Summary: We ordered this receiver and installed it with our existing surround sound system, replacing a Yamaha receiver that had died. Within 4 days, the receiver simply turned off. The next morning we were able to turn it on again but it only stayed on for about 5 minutes before it shut down again.

More functions then I could ever use

Zehnoman "Zehnoman", Amazon
10 September 2009
  • Summary: This has been a great performing stereo right out of the box. There are so many options to change on it that there has been a bit of a steep learning curve, but really enjoying it now that it's all set the way I want it.

Just what I wanted

  • Summary: The receiver does everything I wanted it to do. I like how it upconverts to component via the red/white/yellow rca's. I have many things hooked up to it and this is a great feature for me.

burnmeburn, Ebay
17 August 2009
  • Summary: Receiver has very good sound quality. Less connections than many comparable devices. (lack of optical ports for audio). Less power but better digital sound quality then similar onkyo devices i have used. Overall good receiver for small to medium sized rooms. Not enough power for larger rooms.
