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

James Tee, Amazon
16 May 2014
  • 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.

Great receiver. Worth the spend

Tenac182, Amazon

  • Summary: Great power. 2nd channel for subwoofer really pushes bass. Easy setup, almost plug n play. Only downside and it's being picky is no built-in Wifi.

Beware that Onkyo AV receivers have well-known HDMI board problems

Jeff Bramel, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • 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.

Onkyo gets it right

Phillip G., Amazon
29 November 2013
  • 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.

Just about perfect...

Worf101, avsforum.com
29 October 2013
  • 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

awesome receiver to boast off

Dunston, Amazon
19 May 2013
  • 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...

Careful - expensive for short life span.

Sam "CDx", Amazon
21 March 2013
  • 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.

Great sound but some flaws with video

Horace Crenshaw, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • 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.

The best receiver to use so far

Jose Manuel Canchanya Taipe, Amazon
10 February 2013
  • 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: Лучший доступный по цене усилитель, который мне приходилось использовать. Для прослушивания в типовых условиях (т.е. обычная жилая не подготовленная акустически комната) это максимум на что можно рассчитывать как в кино, так и в музыке. Ранее один из коментаторов упоминал о том, что связка из преда и мощника Densen порвала данный ресивер "как тузик грелку", забыв напомнить, что указанная пара стоит около 10 000 евро, т.е. более чем в 4-ре раза дороже Onkyo 5010.
  • Pros: доступная стоимость для топового Hi-Fi (или начального Hi-End, кому как нравится)
  • Cons: не "Made in Japan", что лишает аппарат ореола вещи высочайшего качества, все таки "Made in Malaysia" звучит слишком обыденно для агрегата с претензией на эталонный звук в своем классе, пахнет стандартным ширпотребом...
