Summary: Don't purchase a Onkyo, have sent the unit in for repairs 3 times on warrenty. Lasted 4 months yes I believe the hmdi- board went bad again this time out of warrenty. It has been in the shop longer than it has been working. I will never buy Onkyo again.
Good product, may be worth spending more $ to buy the Integra version.

Summary: Very good processor, good sound, clear dialogue, ok features ( inability to play FLAC files via an external HD connected directly with a USB cable to the USB port. It can play/ recognize MP3 and Apple files via an iPod or iPhone connected via USB. I have 9 speakers playing via 9 channels of Emotiva XPR series amplifiers ( XPR 5 and XPR 2 and an XPA 3).
Summary: Very suprised with the audio quality. Coming from Theata digital processor I was expecting to have to "tweek" my way back to the quality level I expect. No need to worry, it best what I had especially when combined with Audassy pro 32. Very pleased.
Hdmi board died after about 5 mins, customer service clueless

Summary: I bought this pre pro secure in the knowledge that it was a solid performer. It was getting a little long in the tooth but the feature set was good and the AV8801 was still just that little bit out of reach. Anyway , yesterday the ups guy turns up with my big box of joy. Nicely packed and secured and I took my time with the setup via xlrs and dual subs in a 9.2 configuration with 2 power amps.
Summary: I tested an NAD pre/pro and Marantz 8801... I actually like the Onkyo more than the other 2. I can tell that the other 2 are really good with music, but I use my system mostly for movies, so the Onkyo won.
Summary: I did not buy this unit from amazon but I got to hear it and I did not care for the sound but a friend bought one and brought it to my house so we hooked it up and this one was the best I have heard so far and that includes McIntosh Marantz Yamaha and others for the first time I can hear the dialogue clear as can be the auto set up is greate but what realy sold me was the dolby volume setting at a wisper or at thx seting the sound is spectacular and the audyssey eq works...

Summary: First, I should mention that I'm what's known to the consumer electronics trade as an "early adopter". I've been a home theater nut for over twenty years, and I've owned, in no particular order, processors from Yamaha, Lexicon, Theta Digital, Adcom, Denon, Arcam, and Integra. As the industry and technology have advanced, I've upgraded with it. And if I ever totaled up what all of those processors have cost, I'd probably commit sepuku.
Summary: Detta omdöme gäller egentligen Integra DHC 80.3, som är samma maskin men med vissa komponenter i bättre tolerans. Använder en Onkyo TX NR 807 som försteg, över tiden tillsammans med olika slutsteg. Var nyfiken på om ett dedicerat bioförsteg kunde lyfta ljudet främst när man lyssnar i stereo. Vissa recensioner gör gällande att Onkyo's hemmabioreceivers i 800-klassen låter mycket bra till film men att de inte är så förfinade till 2 kanal stereo.
