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.
Summary: I purchased this because my older, rock solid, Denon did not do 3-D pass-through and I just got tired of that and sold it. This receiver does everything you need it to do basically, however, as others mentioned while it can support Wi-fi and Bluetooth, they're not included features. It does have a built-in Ethernet port.
Summary: For the money, this is a good receiver. I love the internet connection. The remote is frustrating. It took me over a week to get things figured out. Most of my confusion has to do with the Zone 2. Press Zone 2 and receiver for zone 2. This was the big frustration for me. How to get back to zone 1. Press Receiver in Mode and then the Receiver button by Zone 2. Here is my tip. Download the Application for your smart phone.
Summary: I bought this receiver since about a month. I hooked all my devices to it and It works well so far and get best of my existing Yamaha home theater speakers. So the sound quality seems to be good. The remote control is a bit light in functionality or maybe I don't know how to program it. I could not find a way of turning off/on multiple devices with the power button. I also bought the Bluetooth USB key a week ago. Now I can play music from my phone and tablet.
Has most of what you ask for and expands if needed.

Summary: I've always been curious how many people use all the 7.1, 8.1 etcetera, use all these surround sound speaker arrays in their home. A full media room is a relative rarity for a typical house, and since the standard in the past has always been two speakers, how'd we get to so many. Here we have a 5.2 system, maybe a little more than needed but at least modest by today's standards. It has what I think is the right combination in inputs and outputs.
Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR525 and TX-NR626 are very similar receivers. The 626 has the addition of Wi-Fi-Certified Wireless LAN Capability, Bluetooth Audio Streaming, 7.2 Channels instead of 5.2, 4K Upscaling, 2 HDMI-Out instead of 1, and 95W of power output per channel instead of 80W. The price premium of 626 over 525 is $100, and I deem it is worthwhile to consider the 626 if you desire more than two of the above six "features". Otherwise, save the money and buy the 525.
Summary: I bought this to replace my old Yamaha home theater (HTR5930) since it lacked HDMI inputs and basically, my home theater components grew out of it. The decision was simple - went to Amazon and was looking at a receiver with the following "must-haves": 1. Under 90W per speaker output 2. 5 channels (5.1/5.2) 3. Connect to my home network so I can play my media files 4. Speaker hookup through a banana plug 5.
Summary: Also, an sich handelt es sich hier um einen super 5.2 AV-Netzwerk-Receiver, jedoch sei gesagt, dass er mit den neuen Internetfeatures sich noch etwas schwer tut. Das Buffering von Internet-Streams funktioniert leider nicht immer 100%ig. Manchmal puffert er 10 - 20 Sekunden nach bevor es weitergeht. Ein schlechtes Netzwerk kann definitiv ausgeschlossen werden.
Summary: Звучание у ресивера хорошее без нареканий , но есть один нюанс: если этот ресивер использовать с напольными колонками, то на пике после 3 минут прослушивания появляются сильные искажения! В результате этого приходится ресивер убавлять делений на 15. А причина этого бюджетные комплектующие , что та в нем перегревается! Эта проблема всех бюджетных онкио. На аппарате другого производителя даже на бюджетном такой проблемы замечено не было, но качество звука намного хуже!
