Summary: I have had this unit for over a year and it works well. I just bought a Sony 3D DVD and 3D TV. I discovered that the 3D will not switch though this unit. It has to be plugged directly into the TV to work and the fiber optic cable of the TV run back to this unit. Not a good situation.
Great AVR...be careful NOT to brick it with a FW upgrade

Summary: This unit has performed great for everything I've used it for. This includes video upscaling from analog sources, HD video sources from blu ray players & cable STBs, and even did a great job with the networking functions if you want to stream music from your computer or a network server (even...

Summary: I was looking at the Onkyo models for a few months, two things I was really wanting network access and preamp outputs. I had my eye on both this and it's big cousin, the Onkyo TX-NR807 7.2-Channel A/V Surround Home Network Receiver (Black) .
Summary: Pretty good receiver. I am happy with the purchase. I am still in the process of learning all the feature and benefits like the network server and internet radio, but I am sure it will workjust fine.
Summary: I received this nice unit about 3 weeks ago and it is very heavy- a very good thing in an Amp. I like how the speaker terminals are not bunched together. It was somewhat confusing connecting the L/R rear surrounds. as I placed them into the Back L/R surrounds, not just L/R.
Summary: This is very good system. However, the user manual and customer service ove rphone are both pathetic. Requires a fair bit of patience and engineering problem solving skills if there is a problem, especially with network connectivity.
