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. Thanks Amazon for the price I paid.
Summary: this reciever has everything you could want in a home a/v unit. i'm not going to regurgitate product specs, just state fact and opinion i haven't seen on this thing. first, you'd better have a hell of a cabinet for this reciever. it is insanely heavy. make sure all your wires have plenty of slack so you can get everything connected then slide it into your cabinet. it does get a little warm, make sure you have adequate ventilation.
Summary: Easy to set up. A little time consuming. I run it 9.2 and it replaced a 5.1. Get a 12v computer fan controller and a 12v fan and it will stay nice and cool. This is in my living room and normally is run at about 30%. Running Audyssey is a little time consuming and after wiring I ran it 3 times and the sound just got better and better. Everywhere you sit the sound is the same with no hot spots.
Summary: Bought one to replace my Onkyo TX-SR875. I thought that sound and quality was not going to be too different, but NO! the quality and power of sound are truly amazing. Compared with a top end Denon or Yamaha this receiver has a much much better price/features relation. Setup was piece of cake, despite after running the Audissey I didn't like the configuration, so I changed it manually.
Summary: Best Receiver I've ever owned. It's the Ultimate!! The only feature that it lacks is an a/c outlet (switched) on back of unit. The receiver is extremely versatile and fulfills all my power and accessory requirements. I highly recommend this Receiver!
Summary: I did need to do a firmware update to this unit, but once accomplished.... Fantastic performance. The video processing and audio capabilities of this unit are unrivaled at this price point. No regrets whatsoever. Two things... 1) Make sure your firmware is current and is installed correctly- follow the instructions, 2) Make sure you have room for adequate air circulation- the unit runs warm and MUST have ventilation.
Summary: When you compare specification amongst receivers, this Onkyo model is unrivaled. Its not an inexpensive receiver by any means, however, if used properly, it can server as the central hub to your entertainment. When I first received the receiver, I was shocked at how heavy it is. Make sure you have a sturdy entertainment stand/rack for this receiver. Being an I.T. guy by trade, I dove into the manual and all of the features.
Summary: This purchase was made more than 3 months ago to replace a great functioning Onkyo 805. The 805 was passed down to family as a gift and they loved it. The 5007 is even better in many additional aspects. I have used Marantz, Yamaha, Pioneer Elite, Dennon, and Harmon Kardon in the past and this unit by far beats them all in quality, user friendliness, and price.
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. I work in an electronics store and I hear many units daily from the Denon AVR-4810CI and the Pioneer Elite SC-27 and they, in my opinion, can't match the Onkyo in terms of sound and features.
Summary: This receiver will not disappoint you in any way. It has all kinds of features that are very unique. The sound and picture quality is excellent. Setup is pretty easy to do. If you can afford this receiver, I strongly urge that you buy it. You will be glad that you did.
