Too many problems

Vipervick "Metal Enthusiast", Amazon
22 May 2015
  • Summary: Great receiver, horrible design. I bought the 5007 in May of 2010. The HDMI board failed in 2011, but it was covered under warranty. It only cost me the gas to drive to Huntington Beach and back two times. Not terribly far from San Diego. It has just failed again May 2015.

Eggcellent Receiver!

Cody w., Newegg
29 November 2012
  • Pros: I upgraded from a Pioneer Elite VSX-90TXV to this Onkyo TX-NR5007 a couple years ago, and couldn't be any happier with results over-all. Mostly and originally because of the HDMI audio and connectivity I would gain, but I gained more than just that. Toroidal transformer inside for the amplifier w...
  • Cons: HDMI Board does get hot, so I always ended up keeping a fan on top of it, even though it's not in any cabinet of sorts. I always tend to play it safe with my audio equipment. I do wish Onkyo would include a Optical out on their receivers, and a main 12 volt trigger that turns on and off with the ...

Needs Work...

RT, Amazon
29 September 2012
  • Summary: This receiver has major annoying audio glitches that cannot be fixed. It sounds like a clicking noises. I don't know how that got past the engineering quality control department before they mass produced these. It is also not nearly as competitive as other products in its price range.

Super Receiver

Alberto Villarejo, Amazon
15 March 2011
  • Summary: After two months I'm happy with the quality sound and the conections from the Onkyo TX-5007. My speakers KEF iq90, iq60, iq8 and Martin Logan Dynamo subwoofer, sounds spectacular with my oppo SACD and Sony BD-1000. The only problem with Onkyo is the bad package, arrived broken.

Like it so far!

mikewiz, Amazon
7 October 2010
  • Summary: I've been a loyal Sony consumer for years, and I started getting tired of their hard to read/understand manuals, and issues I've had with a tv. I was searching for a new receiver that had HDMI ports on it and wanted something that had Audyssey. I was stuck between an Onkyo and a Harmon/Kardon.

Very Nice

Mark J., Newegg
18 August 2010
  • Summary: I have owned this one since Oct 2009. I had an Onkyo 706B prior to this and have used Yamaha's for last 10's. (The newer Yamaha's just did not have the Features/connections I needed when I bought this. I am a huge Yamaha fan!). I love this reciever!
  • Pros: Great on screen display. The Calibrated setup mic worked very well. (and very easy). Very powerful. 8 HDMI's in and 2 out, (simultaneously). Front HDMI connection. Front and Rear USB connections. Ethernet port. Very high end Video upscaling for your old DVD collection. I can pull video and audio ...
  • Cons: It has a few second delay when switching input resolutions. (minor annoyance). Generates lots of heat even with sound on moderate volumes. (Even has a sticker on top saying "this reciever gets Faily Hot...Don't block the top.." Very heavy, (I reinforced my AV rack for this guy.

Onkyo HDMI boards

Anonymous, Newegg
16 July 2010
  • 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. DOA's are few.
  • 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. And the DOA's, paperweights, more than there should be that's just poor Quality Control. Return unit to etailer if it happens soo...

Very Pleased!

Mike W., Newegg
21 June 2010
  • Summary: - I have to agree with the other reviewers, this unit is heavy (50 lbs). You need to plan ahead with where you will place this. My HT cabinet has glass shelves, and I ended up placing this at the base shelf (below the glass ones).
  • Pros: I'm very, very impressed so far. I replaced my Sony STR-DE985 with this unit, and there's just no comparison. The 5007 is a huge step forward for me: - 145 watts/channel - Front speaker bridging - THX certification - HDMI switching - Ethernet for media sharing and firmware updates - USB ports - A...
  • Cons: - Runs a little warmer than I had hoped. - Not really a true 'con' for the 5007, but initially I couldn't get my Denon 3910 DVD to play nice with the HDMI switching. After a couple days of searching the web on this, I finally narrowed it down to outdated firmware. So this fix this, I downloaded a...

An Expensive PAPER WEIGHT

Matthew H., Newegg
7 June 2010
  • Summary: Make sure you OPEN THIS AND RUN IT for a couple WEEKS straight as SOON as you get it. That way you can RMA it if needed. We were moving and didn't get it unpacked for 2 months (sat in my front room in the orig box) and now I can't RMA it.
  • Pros: NewEgg FAST Shipping and standing behind me.
  • Cons: The unit. It just shuts off...all by itself. Went thru several tech support people...finally...Onkyo decided the unit is BAD. Really??? The best unit out there (supposedly) and it just shuts off...even with NOTHING plugged into it. I used to like Onkyo...not so much anymore.
