Summary: I bought this receiver in Jan. 2010 and it was really easy setting up. All worked as good as could be expected from this receiver until late November when all of a sudden all just stopped working. I bypassed the receiver and hooked my Blue-Ray straight up to plasma tv and it worked fine.
Summary: I have been using this receiver for about 6 months now with very few issues. It may not be the most powerful or the most fully-featured, but for the price I am very happy. The only problem I have had with it is that the video RCA jack labeled DVD didn't work.
Summary: I install theater/sound systems in homes for a living. This Onkyo AV receiver is an AMAZING little guy. Always great right out of the box. Great bang for the buck! Perfect for entry level home theater with a Powered Second zone for a couple of speakers on the Patio or whatever. Great Buy.
Summary: I was initially very thrilled with this product. Easy setup, versitility and great sound and features overall for its price point. Unfortunately I have only had it for six months and it is broken already.
Summary: This receiver works well but it does generate alot of heat. I use it with Onkyo speakers and the sound quality is fairly good. I figured the sound quality should be better than what I hear. My biggest problem with it is getting a single remote to run my system.
Summary: Bought this AudioVideoReceiver as an upgrade to an 8 year old unit. I am using this for Blu-Ray, TIVO satellite, OTA TV, HT computer with internet, VCR and CD/radio for 7.1 surround. My display is a CRT based 57" rear projection HDTV. WOW it sounds great.
Summary: I really, really like this unit. Installing it took some time, but the sound and video switching was well worth it. Instead of having a dozen different cables running to the HDTV, I only have one - the HDMI cable.
Summary: When it comes to great sound quality at a low price, you can't go wrong with Onkyo, they make some of the best receivers that are always at a fair price. The HT-RC160 is very easy to install, just plug and play... Well, more like plug and connect and connect and connect and connect...
Summary: I already own the Onkyo TX-SR606 Home Theater receiver so I was thrilled to be able to review this one. Audio buffs will already know how impressive the TX-SR606 is but how does the HT-RC160 rate? Well to me this is a better receiver. I was certainly more impressed with the video switching.
