Summary: For the money it does what it says it should do. Nothing outstanding but...... does everything I have asked it to do. I recommend this for anyone looking for a stereo replacement or first amp. The spotify works great.
Summary: We enjoyed it while it lasted, but it began having trouble with DVDs flickering and flashing and cutting out, as well as cable tv. We tried different cables and hooked them up to different ports. Nothing worked except switching to a different receiver.
Summary: MY REVIEW ACTUALLY PERTAINS TO TX-NR 609. This is a great amplifier or at least it was until it worked. As you will read in innumerable forums etc, Onkyo install(ed?) faulty HDMI boards which sooner or later will let you down completely. It happened to mine just outside warranty period and the repair cost is just not worth the effort. Horrible experience - DO NOT buy Onkyo until they thoroughly own up to their mistakes!
Summary: Crap crap crap. Bought it off Woot. It has approximately 15 hrs of use. The last time I used it, I had to reboot my devices for HDMI video to work. Now HDMI video out stopped working. I called Onkyo and they are "happy to fix it", provided I drive 3+ hrs to the nearest service center. Dumping it on craigslist since it works as a regular audio receiver and buying something other then Onyko.
