Summary: I had a Pioneer for nearly 20 years and it finally succumbed to too many F1 races and heavy metal. I had high hopes for this integrated piece of sophisticated technology...only to be disappointed...the thing hasn't even lasted a year.
Summary: Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice... This was the second Onkyo unit I have owned in which the HDMI circuit burned out pretty soon after purchase. Very annoying. The sound quality was excellent, and still is for everything except HDMI. My advice: buy a comparably price Yamaha.
Summary: this unit works great when it works. problem is I bought this less than 2 years ago and now it is not working no sound, and searching online, I found that this is a problem with this particular receiver. I had a Kenwood for 12 hrs, no problem.
Pros: Easy setup, plenty of options, good sound, performed perfectly for about a year.
Cons: Only worked for about a year. Video signal comes through still, but I am no longer getting sound through any of the channels regardless what input it's set on. Not even the FM input is working. All speakers still work. I tried to install the firmware update via USB, but the receiver is not readin...
Good sound, lots of HDMI inputs, but this thing is really quite basic

Summary: Pros: - Lots of HDMI inputs - Good (but not great) sound - Access to many different internet radio services, more than any other line of receiver I could find. - Inexpensive, compared to other receivers. Cons: - A BORING user interface. Made me want to sleep.
Summary: It is a good receiver - perhaps I just received a copy that had a defect from the point of assembly. I will try one more time if the RMA is accepted. I would suggest that people who own this model of receiver not stack components as heat dissipation might be an issue with this base line model of...
Pros: A good base line receiver for the price. Good sound and performance right out of the box.
Cons: I noticed during the first week that as the receiver warmed up with use, the surround channel output signal to noise ratio was not good. Monitoring signal to noise on the output with a scope and plotting it against heat of the unit verified this. After 10 days of use, the right surround channel w...
Summary: Forced to purchase a digital HDMI capable receiver to replace my very good legacy analog 5.1 Kenwood which had no digital inputs. I reluctantly bought the 414 as there were a plethora of down-side reviews, particularly regarding software and reliability.
Summary: Update: Im Rahmen des Customer Care von Onkyo wird das Gerät auf Kulanz repariert! Auf der Onkyo Seite einfach die Seriennummer eingeben und prüfen lassen, ob auch Ihr Gerät betroffen ist. Leider hat Onkyo immer das selbe Problem. Irgendwann kommt kein Ton mehr - Hardware defekt.
