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 ...

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.

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.

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...

Excellent HT Centerpiece

Andrew H., Newegg
30 April 2010
  • Summary: There are some bugs that require the unit be turned off then back on, but the ability for Onkyo to address those bugs have provide a firmware update makes the annoyance tolerable.
  • Pros: Outstanding unit with way more features than I will probably take advantage of. NewEgg was having a great deal and I took advantage of it. The Ethernet port is a real benefit if you have a home network with Internet connectivity. I can update the firmware easily, listen to 14760 Internet radio st...
  • Cons: Size and weight are the two biggest factors. Most shelves seem to have a limit of 50 pounds and this is a 55 pound unit. The size of the unit alone will take up most shelves, but you also need to factor in the space requirements for all the connections on the rear and adequate ventillation.

The Home Theater Beast

Thang Nguyen, Amazon
1 April 2010
  • Summary: I purchased the Onkyo TX-NR5007 in February 2010 to replace my Onkyo TX-SR806. Going from the 806 to the 5007 was like day and night. The sound from the 5007 is easily the best I've heard from any receiver.
