  • Summary: My receiver made it 1 month over 2 years and now experiencing frequent internet connectivity issues and intermittent sound output issues. Up until this point it was a good receiver that met expectations.
  • Pros: Multiple HDMI ports, internet connected
  • Cons: Outdated UI, apparently not durable.

Don't buy Onkyo 616 or 515 if you use HDMI

Larry Buzzell "Macintosh Evangelista", Amazon

  • Summary: It has a chronic problem just like the NR616 I replaced it with. It loses HDMI connection. You have to unplug it to force hdmi startup to reconnect. This particular one didn't respond to that procedure either!

  • Summary: I bought this receiver despite reading in the reviews that it had issues relating to the HDMI output because it had all of the features I need and was way less expensive than the alternatives.

** Updated: HDMI problem persists despite new firmware **

Zoli, Amazon

  • Summary: UPDATED: This started out as a 5* review on discovery that I did not need to update the firmware, my unit came with the 400 version installed. But things went downhill since then - now I wish I could assign zero stars, not one.

Awsome

  • Summary: The only thing that would make this a PERFECT system would me a HDTV tuner built in.
  • Pros: Works much better than expected. Replaces my PC and/or video converter box. Aux HDMI input in front is also a nice feature. Good GUI
  • Cons: None

  • Summary: Pondered a Yamaha, Denon, Pioneer, Sony, even a Marantz. None could beat this receiver for features vs price. Yamaha would have been my second choice. Their on-screen display was a little 90's for my taste.
  • Pros: Price!! Features - You cant get better features under $300.00 Wi-Fi - Pandora easily connected. Adapter purchased separately. Nice On-Screen Display - GUI not outdated Good remote if just a little light and slick. Controls everything, SAT, BluRay, TV. One Remote.
  • Cons: Delay in switching source to actually viewing it. For example loading a bluray. It will take 30 sec or so to get the receiver to output the signal from the bluray through the receiver, to the tv. Kind of annoying but minor.

Decent Receiver

Nicholas M., Newegg
6 February 2013
  • Pros: Easy setup, I like the on-screen guide and controls. Loud clear output.
  • Cons: My only real gripe with this receiver is that takes too long to switch modes. When I'm using my HTPC, I only hear about 1/2 of the startup sound and the first few seconds of audio are missing from everything while I listen to the receiver make its loud audio source switch clicking noises.
