This amplifier is not worth the investment, even at $500.00. Very poor designs. Professional reviewers only spend a short period of time with these units and the real test of quality is longivity. It runs super hot and over time burns out interior boards. This happened to me(and a couple of others I know who have this model and the 5007). Yes, you will likely get a couple years from this unit but then it will likely breakdown. I have called Onkyo 3 times and wrote 2 emails over a four week period without a response. I have been very friendly and cooperative, yet I can not get a returned call or an email, let alone service. This company's customer service is non-existant. I don't get mad but live by the old saying, "burn me once shame on you, burn me twice shame on me". I will not be purchasing any other Onkyo products and I suggest if you want to avoid headaches, stay far away from this company as you can. If you do some considerable research on these receivers you will see a pattern, one which leads to disappointment!

With HDMI for video and audio out to my current 4 yr old Pioneer elite and I can't get anything but just plain 2 channel stereo. I was told that it was because of my old receiver. Will this Onyko be able to handle other audio formats vai HDMI when I play movies back through the media PC? Thanks

I have seven speakers connected to this receiver with two subs. My speakers are B & W 683 towers with Klipsch rears and they are 6 to 8 ohms. However my subs are 4 ohms and the receiver manual mentions to set the receiver to 4 ohms if ANY of your speakers are 4 ohms or damage can occur. The other option is 6 to 16 ohms, I think. My question is this: since my subs are 4 ohms should I set the receiver to 4 ohms? I currently have it set to 6 because I'm not considering my subs as speakers. I assumed the manual was only refering to the front/rear, etc. speakers and not the subs. Please advise. Thanks!

Yes you are correct. The sub is connected via Line Level Out (RCA Connection). The sub uses its own amplifier matched for the speaker. Truly not part of the speaker package. Enjoy your
