Summary: Would give 5 stars if they allowed the ability to reassign the speaker output channels.
Pros: Amazing video processor. My Oppo BDP93 also has the Qdeo but the Onkyo dramatically improves the picture quality. XT32 makes a significant improvement in sound over the older plain-jane MultEQ. My 8 year old Jamo's have found new life with this receiver. Running in 7.1 config with front-high spea...
Cons: You can not reassign the output channels. I planned to run 9.2 config with F, C, Sur, FH with the 8th & 9th channels to bi-amp the F speakers. Onkyo has designated the Front High channel as the bi-amp channel for the Fronts. So I have two channels that become worthless to my particular (and commo...
Do yourself a favour and get the TP-Link wireless adapter for this
James Tee, Amazon

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...
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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".
