Works well... until it doesn't.

CheekyMonkeys, Amazon

  • Summary: We bought this unit in Feb 2013 and, other than finding that zone 2 did not support digital inputs, all has been fine... until now. Over the past week, we lost audio service completely, and the receiver would have to be powered off and unplugged for about a minute, then started again before any audio would come through when using either cable or appletv as the audio/video source. Finally, the audio died completely.

Probably would have been pretty cool

  • Summary: I've always prefered Onkyo and Yamaha when it comes to receivers, I decided Onkyo this time. Probably would have been pretty awesome if the thing had come fully assembled. In their defense, I bought refurbed, but I didn't think they could miss unconnected circuitry.

Thought I dodged the bullet....

  • Summary: Purchased the 515 unit after researching receivers for quite a while. Looking for both features, value and dependability. Well, two out of three ain't bad. Read about the HDMI issues, the firmware update created to fix it and figured I'd take the gamble. Purchased the unit for myself as an early Christmas gift the first of December 2012 and when I received, immediately applied the latest firmware update.

First 100 hours

Mark Fitzpatrick, Amazon

  • Summary: I researched AV Receivers here on Amazon as well as by visiting several local retailers and extensively reading online reviews at CNET.com and other sites. My needs were pretty basic: at least 4 HDMI ports, internet connectivity, and 5.2 surround sound in a single zone. I wanted Airplay capability but knew I could get it via Airport Express or Apple TV device so I did not make this a "must have" capability built into the receiver.

Could be a killer problem - HDMI Main Out fails at times

Valley League Dad, Amazon
15 May 2012
  • Summary: There is a problem that some of us are currently experiencing that we hope Onkyo will fix with a firmware update. Intermittently, the main HDMI out will just go dark when it goes from standby to active. It can be "fixed" by either using the second HDMI out (but you lose your onscreen displays) or by unplugging the unit and plugging it back in. I am just leaving mine on, muted, to prevent the problem, but that is not ideal either.

Not bad, but the second output has it's limitations

John A. Giannangeli, Amazon

  • Summary: I think a lot of people will be interested in this receiver for the low price point with a secondary HDMI output. While it does work, there are some limitations that I wish I was aware of. First of all, here is my setup: Room 1 Samsung PN64550 3D Plasma Onkyo NR 515 Direct TV HR24-100 Original PS3 Room 2 Samsung LN46530 LCD (Non-3D) Issue #1 with second HDMI output You can't get sound out of your receiver speakers and your internal speakers on the second TV at the same...

Not bad, but not without issues

  • Summary: I waited and waited for this unit to be released for the dual HDMI monitor out. Unfortunately, it works much differently than I expected it to. I wanted to drive my theater speakers and HDTV in one room, and an additional HDTV using its internal speakers in another room. It turns out that it will not work in this manner. You can enable AUDIO TV OUT to get audio on two HDTVs simultaneously but you would have to use the internal sound on both TVs.

Zone 2 - na ja, nutzbar ist die im Grunde nicht

cache "cache", Amazon
30 July 2014
  • Summary: Das Gerät gibt's vermutlich schon länger, was soll ich sonst von dem Satz aus dem Manual halten: Es werden nur a n a l o g e Eingangssignale von den ZONE 2 LINE OUT-Buchse und ZONE 2 L/R-Anschlüssen ausgegeben. Digitale Eingangsquellen werden n i c h t ausgegeben. Wenn von der gewählten Eingangsquelle kein Ton wiedergegeben wird, prüfen Sie, ob die Quelle an einen analogen Eingang angeschlossen wurde.

  • Excerpt: В целом аппарат неплохой был выбор между ним и Пионером 626 также с двумя выходами, сейчас взял бы его.
  • Pros: Пользуюсь чуть более 2х месяцев. Качество звука хорошее, автокалибровка звука, не нужно настраивать вручную, вручную только подстроить частотный диапзон в авто неправильно опредилил.
  • Cons: Подключен по HDMI к двум источникам телевизор и видеопроектор . Если не отключить предварительно от розетки на видеопректор видео не выводит только на телевизор, установка последней прошивки с официального сайта не помогла. Вывод настроек на монитор тоько через один выход не удобно.Уровень зука в центральном канале после каждого выключения сбрасывает на минимум.Нет полного обесточивания с кнопки нужно выдергивать из розетки. Ощутимо греется. В инструкции написано чита...

excelenter Klang, miese Bedienung

Swen, Amazon

  • Summary: Der Sound mit meinen Teufel-Boxen ist schon hervorragend. Der Receiver nimmt alle möglichen Quellen entgegen und das Abspielen von mp3 vom NAS und Internetradio klappt hervorragend. Wenn, ja wenn da nicht die grässliche Bedienung währe. Hier ist nichts aus einem Guss. Anscheinend hat sich hier keiner Gedanken über ein harmonisches, sinnvolles und integrales Bedienkonzept gemacht. Mal erscheinen Meldungen im Display, mal auf dem Bildschirm.
