Summary: I gave this only 3 stars because of the lack of Onkyo support and distance to the closest authorized Onkyo repair shop. I have had this unit for 2+ years and have been mostly satisfied with its performance. About a month ago it started clicking a couple of times before it would turn on. Each day the number of clicks increased until it finally just clicked and refused to turn on. The closest Onkyo is 400 miles away from me.
Summary: Amazingly priced, this Onkyo is now providing MORE than ample sound in a home theatre application with a 52 inch LED HD TV. Combined with a powered subwoofer, the package creates sound pressure levels equal to commercial movie theatres without the slightest hint of distortion or over driving.
Powerful connectivity lets me connect numerous playback devices

Summary: As someone who started collecting vinyl LP records in the 1960s, then audiocassettes in the 70s and 80s, VHS tapes in the 80s, then CDs in the 90s, and DVDs in the 00's, I have a large amount of content in the various media. The hardware needed to play this media includes not only turntable, tape deck, VCR, CD and DVD player, and cable box, but a computer with a high end sound card that provides access to a gigantic high quality online music collection called Rhapsody,...
Summary: The first receiver died within a week of arrival. Contacted Amazon and they immediately sent a replacement. I've had this now for over a year. Great product, plenty of options (HDMI, RCA - inputs) to satisfy all but the most obsessive home theater folks. Plus: Upscales video, plenty of inputs, quite easy setup I would have given a 5-star except for the return/exchange. The product is worth the money.
Summary: Lots of power, flexible design for setting up different configurations, I will use the bi-amp capability for my Vandersteens. My only complaint after using the product for several weeks now is that my eye sight has trouble reading the small text on the buttons on the remote. I highly recommend this product!
Summary: I have three iterations of this receiver and still use all three. There are great reviews on Amazon with a lot of great information. Yes this has best in class number of hdmi inputs and is a great HT receiver. Two things that aren't great and why I give only four stars, I am surprised more people don't comment: The video processing is horrible and needs to be turned off which means you lose the on screen display.
Summary: I am by no means an audiophile and has become crystal clear to me I cannot afford to become one plus at 58 who cares. What i do care about is quality for good price and SO FAR this receiver has exceeded my every expectation. I see the price has increased by $80 since I purchased mine. I am usually on the opposite end of luck. These are very hard to find and I find it a bit puzzling why this receiver is priced significantly higher than its upgraded/newer version....
Summary: Having had a good exprience with Onkyo receivers before, I got this one, and so far it exceeds what I thought it would do. It has plenty of power for my large JBL speakers. As I write this, I would recomend this receiver.
