A feature-rich receiver that performs well overall, but Onkyo customer service is non-existent.
11 May 2013
Summary: I purchased the Onkyo HT-RC360 to go with my new home theater. I selected it because of the extensive feature set, solid reviews of its HDMI switching, and the price point (<$400). Setup: Like any other receiver to physically place and setup, only really unique feature for me is the Audessy microphone-based calibration. I also have a physical ethernet connection to a wireless bridge although I don't use the networked capabilities that often.
Pros: Great set of features, support for HDMI-switching, fast at day-to-day operations, internet-based ROM updates
Cons: When it failed, Onkyo did nothing to help except refer to a local reseller
Summary: This receiver is well worth the price for what you are getting for your money. It has plenty of power and enough inputs and outputs to run just about any component you can think of. Plus the auto-calibrating sound setup is a plus. The only drawback is that the user manual included is in french and spanish ONLY, no English. If you want or need an English manual you have to download it from Onkyos website.
Summary: I'm pretty happy with this Onkyo so far. I got it to replace a Yamaha 7.1 and it surpasses the Yamaha. It's menu's are much easier to navigate, sounds better, and it's nice that it hooks directly up to the internet for online radio. Pretty decent unit for the money.
Summary: Great options!!! Very specific hookup instructions. Awsome Techinal Sapport. Very helpful, big reason I would recommend this product. Great money value for the options you get with this product. Only owned this product for 1 week so far so good I have this system running with a Energy 5.1 surround sound system. And two sub woofers 200 watt energy woofer and old 90 watt Phillips I had from old surround sound.
Summary: Easy setup, little challenging figuring out what options are available on the menu with different settings.The only con you can not have zone 2 on while you have the 7.1 set up unless you have a separate amp for zone 2.
Summary: I love this receiver! Easy setup. Has some great features even an undocumented feature. I downloaded an app for my iPad which allows me to control the receiver through my network. I teach Home Integration at a community college, I will definitely be asking the college to purchase one of these for the class.
Summary: I've had one of these for over a year in the living room, and am back to buy another one for my man cave. It has pretty much all features. More than the competition for sure. Even the new NR-515 and RC460 that replace this are 20WPC less power. The onscreen menu is great. Pick your speaker layout and it shows it to you what it looks like on the screen. With the included mic it auto-calibrates your speakers, and does a good job. It streams from my home network fine.
Summary: Great receiver,easy to set up and use.Has more inputs and outputs than I could use and thats after TV,DVD,stereo,surround sound and LogiTec I.R. for remote all set up and still have more if necessary.
Summary: I was reluctant to order this as I read of a few problem areas. To cover my worries, I bought the extended 3 year warranty. The receiver has EXCEEDED my expectations. We had a Sony Dolby 6.1 system and this new system is WAY better. We actually hear the system in 5.1 as we are waiting for one more speaker to add to the set, but it is far superior to the old system. Plenty of power, crisp, no distortion, and it actually produces the 5.1 sound experience.
