Summary: Onkyo's TX-NR525 is a solid AV receiver value, especially considering its affordable accessories, but competitors offer integrated wireless features for not much more.
Pros: The Onkyo TX-NR525 is a solid value, especially considering its affordable wireless accessories for Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. It also has six HDMI inputs, plus extensive networking features, including onboard streaming-audio support for Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, Slacker, and Internet radio.
Cons: For $50 more, Sony's STR-DN840 offers built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and AirPlay. And while the option to use accessories is nice, you can only use one at a time.
