Summary: I found this receiver on sale at a local store for really really really cheap. Otherwise, I would have purchased it here. Oh yah, its really heavy.
Pros: Really great receiver. I upgraded from an Onkyo tx-sr505. What a difference! The clicking noise that others have complained about is barely even noticeable and it only occurs when watching tv. Honestly, with the firmware upgrade the clicking noise is not noticeable. The power produced by this rec...
Cons: The video up conversion does not seem to make a difference on my low definition cable. I think it might have something to do with my cable choice. I heard that you can use standard composite cables as components, but I am not so sure. Also, the receiver has locked up once or twice while using Pan...
Summary: The set up with the Audyssey is a must do and it really, really makes a difference, especially with the rear speaker volume levels in relation to your favorite chair.
Pros: We replaced an old Onkyo with this unit and I was a bit nervous spending twice what we did on our ancient 5.1. So far we have played DVD movies and CD music, but let me say that the sound is incredible. I have never heard such great separation and we are hearing tones out of our old speakers that...
Cons: The hook up is very involved and there are so many features to learn about. My husband has very high + understanding and it took him 4 hours to get it all hooked up properly and set up with the tv, satellite and PS3. Another hour for the Audyssey and still have yet to install permanent hook up to...
Summary: Setting up Logitech Harmony 880 (also new to me) has been a challenge to get full functions on the receiver -- but it does work.
Pros: Lots of options with the heavyweight. Internet connection worked fine of firmware up-date, Internet Radio and DNLA server (even on my Mac). Many different listening modes, and plenty of connection options. Audyssey set-up was easy--movies sound great (Transformers 2 last night).
Cons: Didn't buy the iPod add-on because of the cost, so I miss that feature. Fairly complex if you're new to using a full feature receiver, but the manual isn't bad (not great either).
Summary: I researched my AVR choice for months, read plenty of reviews, both pro and consumer, and settled on this one. There are several home theater forums as well that were very helpful- although realize that on any internet forum you tend to concentrate those who are having problems with the unit.
Summary: After my Outlaw Audio 1050 broke, I researched and got this receiver. The pros are: 1. Superior audio amplifier - I listen usually from low to moderate levels and the quality is noticeable still after a few months. I'm using Dynaudio speakers. 2.

Summary: I just replaced a Pioneer Elite with this new Onkyo 9.2. This new Audessey DSX technology is awesome. I have all 11 speakers (Def Tech) hooked up plus 2 subs and I can tell you that the front high and front wide speakers do make a huge difference.
Great Receiver!!!! But not all 9 speakers can play at once

Summary: This is a fantastic receiver. I thought my last won was great but this is in an entirely new category. Sound is phonomenal and to watch/hear a Blue Ray through this RX astounding. But, I purchased 4 more Def Tech speakers for this; 2 each BP7004's and 2 Mytho's XL's which were another $2500.
