Summary: I had bought an HTRC360 a few years ago and wanted to replace my father's old Yamaha with something that does hdmi. The receiver sounds much better than what he had previously thanks to Dynamic EQ and the Dynamic range set to medium. They actually enjoy the surround formats now instead of just constantly leaving it in all channel stereo. The menus however are very bland. They are not like my HTRC360 at all.
and performing great. I love the network connection

Summary: I just unboxed it after the New Year. So far it's sounding, and performing great. I love the network connection. It easily updated the firmware via the network as well. I'm a big Pandora guy, so it's great having that mainline to the 'net. Not overjoyed with the B&W network menu however. My cell displays the album cover associated with the song that's playing. Not the case with this Onkyo. It's a fairly ugly B&W screen.
... with regard to sound quality and it was very easy to set up

Summary: This receiver works well with regard to sound quality and it was very easy to set up. My only negative remark is that it seems to never really shut down completely. There is an audible humming noise coming from the unit after the power has been turned off. At first I thought it was a cooling fan but the noise was still happening even after the unit had been shut off all night.
Summary: It took a little while to understand all the functions of this receiver but so far it has surpassed all the previous ones I have owned.The only problem ihave is with my internet provider which is to slow to get on line and receive internet radio and other streaming activities.
