amazing sounding receiver that fits in great with other modern devices
10 May 2013
Summary: Needed an HDMI switching receiver to replace my old sony ES pros: 5 hdmi inputs pre outs highly configurable great sound once calibrated (little bright initially) impressive sound stage and detail network controllable and configurable!
Summary: This is my first AVR, used to have component audio back in the 70s, so this was/is all new to me & after reading forums & reviews, had narrowed my search to this model or a Yamaha & picked this one as it has phono outs & I still have a record collection from way back.
Summary: This is truly a beast of a receiver. While a lot of companies have been shedding pounds off their receivers and reducing their size, I'm glad to see Onkyo putting out this HT-RC180, which reeks of quality and good taste. Aesthetically, it's sharp and modern...and again, fairly big.
Summary: This receiver sounds very good. The sound is pretty clean even at pretty high volumes. The amp hiss is virtually inaudible. I wish the menu was more intuitive and easy to operate, but for the price that I paid I cannot complain and I had an Onkyo receiver before so I am used to the menu a little.
Summary: This Onkyo HT-RC180 7.2 channel A/V receiver replaced a top of the line Yamaha receiver, barely three years old and retailing for twice as much. The Yamaha was excellent in every way and I hated having to replace it but, as is common in the world of consumer electronics, innovation had overtaken it...
Summary: Couldn't be happier with this receiver. I needed something to replace my Onkyo TXSR600. Wanted to stay within the Onkyo family and this seemed to have everything I needed. Love the network connectivity and audio quality. Video switching and quality of upscaling is fine.
Summary: I've had Sony and pioneer receivers, although they've worked fairly well, never has a receiver amazed me as much as the Onkyo HT-RC180, it's just that awesome! The HT-RC180 is very easy to install, just plug and play... Well, more like plug and connect and connect and connect and connect...
