Summary: Would I buy another Onkyo receiver given what I know now about the HDMI board issues? Time will tell...I'll have to see if Onkyo will repair the receiver a second time, and this time out of warranty.
Pros: I have owned this receiver for over two years now. Awesome video and sound playback, features, etc.
Cons: Do some research online - Onkyo appears to have a known HDMI board issue with a number of their receivers. My unit started having intermittent sound problems and over a period of time the sound failed totally. I had to pay near $100 to have the receiver shipped to a service center while it was un...
Summary: This is a very nice network receiver which was quite a bargain at $800 on sale on Amazon. One big issue though, the processing of the audio from my Uverse box was abysmal. I had a Sherwood-Newcastle P-965 (was a great unit) that stopped working just after New Years and had to be replaced.
Summary: I bought a different brand with less known issues. And that being said, there are a lot of good Onkyo units out that will not need HDMI board replacement service.
Pros: A lot of pro's but, read below..............
Cons: Some Onkyo's, what percentage, who knows, Onkyo units 1007, 3007,5007's have faulty HDMI boards & have to be sent in to Onkyo to get them replaced, U pay shipping in. Or return unit to etailer if it happens soon after purchase. This is well noted in popular Audio Video Science forums.
Summary: I was into real high end audio at one time. Today, I just need something to make my TV sound good. Problem is, once you know what good sound is, it's hard to go back. This unit strikes a happy medium on cost/performance scale. It delivers the goods.
Pros: Awesome sound. Good up-convert quality. Lots of inputs and outputs.
Cons: Broken within 24 hours. HDMI inputs went south almost immediately, leaving only component in working. Audio section started failing the next day. What a disappointment.
Summary: I was a bit worried when the unit came without the customary double packing I’m used to from newegg but box was handle nicely and not damaged.
Pros: Does everything it’s advertised as capable of. Noticeable sounds and video improvement in my setup. As for the "clicking sound" I don't notice it unless I'm trying to hear it. Also, Onkyo has provided new firmware to speedup the switching and lessen the clicking sound.
Summary: Full 7.1 speaker system (going to set up the last 2 channels upstairs when I get around to it), so i don't use the highs or wides, but I have high end speakers (Definitive) that fill the room anyhow, so its not necessary. Mitsubishi HC5500 1080p projector on 100" screen.
Pros: This unit is very easy to set up (easy being a relative term of course), has a very good calibration system, lots of options, and very good features. One of my big reasons for getting this one over some of the cheaper ones is the streaming music - its so easy to just log in to your pandera accoun...
Cons: If you use it for a very long time it does get a little hot. At the very min. never store something on top of it to keep the vents clear, but I actually bought a little computer fan to sit on top of it (which I don't even turn on unless I'm going to play FF13 for 16 hours straight).
Summary: What I have: Review - Onkyo TX-NR1007 Receiver - hooked up to my home network (wired) Front: Definitive Technology Mythos STS Speakers (Remember each speaker has a 300w powered subwoofer built in) Center Def Tech Mythos 9 Surrounds - Def Tech Gems Emotiva XPA-5 Amplifier 200WPC Sony BDP-N460 Blue...
Summary: This is one of best 9.2 receiver available in the market. But my question is What kind of speakers your people used for this unit, because i called onkyo regarding this issue they said they are not making any speakers for this unit, they have 130W speakers max.
Summary: The reciever is working as described. I've been very pleased with it's performance. A little tricky to set-up, but once you've spent some time in the menus to know where settings are making modifications to the system is not difficult. I've been very pleased with the performance.
