Do yourself a favour and get the TP-Link wireless adapter for this

Summary: I have last year's nearly identical model (the TX-NR5009). We use the receiver to power 2 other zones (as powered-zones vs pre-amped unpowered). When the speakers in the other 2 zones (in addition to main room) are all on and at higher levels, it does cause the receiver to power off - maybe too many amps. But it does work at decent volumes in all 3 zones simultaneously with different sources.
Beware that Onkyo AV receivers have well-known HDMI board problems

Summary: For what it's worth -- I also have had problems with my TX-NR5008 (previous flagship model). The sound dies after about two years due to a well-known HDMI board failure issue. It's now happened to me twice. But don't take my word for it, Google it and decide for yourself. Or check out the Onkyo tech support forums.
Summary: I purchased the 5010 to replace my earlier Onkyo TX-NR5007 that was cursed from the start. Onkyo treated me well with free, after-warranty service on the 5007, and I liked the similar app-based remote control and streaming features I had grown to like with my TX-NR616, so I pulled the trigger. Very pleased so far. Very natural, open sound common to all the TX series receivers, excellent phono preamp as well.
Summary: I had thought about getting a new AV Receiver for a long, long time. I'd had several down through the years... mostly Onkyo's of various stripes. My then current receiver in my main living room system was the venerable Onkyo TX-NR905 that I'd bought used off the Bay almost 7 years ago. It was a "beast" but it gave great sound, particularly in 2-Channel mode. I live in a 1934 Sears Kit House.
Pros: Extremely Flexible. Torroidal Power. Relatively Easy to Set Up. Powered Zone 2 for ALL Inputs!
Cons: Heavy as all get out. Does NOT have the most popular streaming channels. Still have to have a WiFi Dongle to Connect to the Net or Home Network
Summary: Well i did not buy this receiver from amazon, i picked it from a onkyo distributor where i live by. Just wanted to share my review about this awesome receiver, using a 7.1 channel setup with Focal audio Chorus 836V, Chorus SR 800 V, Chorus CC 800 V, Chorus SW 800 V , i have to admit never had the best movie viewing experience for years after i got Onkyo TX NR5010, every detail is so crisp and real bang and thump no loss of detail of the movie even at low volumes, when...
Summary: I find it interesting that so many people have down voted my review here. Wouldn't others like to know the truth concerning others experiences with a company and their products? Anyway - I bought the 5008 from Amazon in May 2010. ~2 years later - no sound. It appears that a lot of people are having this problem with multiple models of Onkyo products. Google Onkyo no sound. This is my second top of the line purchase from Onkyo.
Summary: Great sound with movies and music. There is just one thing I have found wrong. When I set the Video to Custom, the picture is not solid. There is a flicker when there is a fast motion. It's kind of hard to explain. You'll need to see it to understand what I mean by "not solid". I upgraded from the TX-NR905 and this box pumps out a heck of a lot more sound. It's not just louder, it's loud and clear.
Summary: Good product, once calibrated the speakers the sound is spectacular both in music and movies. Sound programs are specific, easy to program, front USB port is handy for the iPad turn listening to music with great audio quality, convenient remote control computers control everything with it. I'm using two subwoofers is impressive surround sound.
Excerpt: Кино: долго и мучительно выбирал AV-ресивер для просмотра именно концертов: рок, джаз, акустику с хорошим звуком, и только потом для киноэффектов. После 200 часов прогрева могу с уверенностью сказать - достойно. Акустический концерт Воскресенья и юбилейный концерт TOTO в Амстердаме, наконец, зазвучали, эффект присутствия ошеломляющий. Для этого монстра ценовая категория колонок должна быть соответствующая, иначе будет непонятно, за что платили.
Pros: серьезная, добротно собранная модель, шикарный звук в кино, неплох в стерео
Cons: с настройкой придется повозиться, но не сильно-), требует пространства, нет своего (хотя бы и простенького) встроенного медиапроигрывателя (хотя, видит и подключается к медиа-библиотеке домашнего NAS без проблем)
