Summary: Be afraid if you are not a geek and want several years of reliable service.
Pros: Sounded great out of the box.
Cons: Complicated set up. Internet interface is square wheels on a Porsche. Up and puked no sound after 18 months. No customer service from Onkyo local. To much to ship for diagnostic. Video still works but no sound.
Pros: This a very nice unit , it sounds pretty good , lots of inputs & outputs
Cons: I had to take 1 egg off because of the remote , it only works half or less than half of the time , sometime you can turn the unit on with the remote but the rest of the time you have to turn it on by pushing the power button
Summary: This is my 3rd Onkyo receiver.. the other two stopped working (including the high end 7.1). I should have learned my lesson.. hope this one works more than a year. Be warned, their support stinks.
Pros: Has WiFi, USB hub
Cons: Net Radio interface is like DOS.. so lame. For the $$$ you'd think Onkyo could improve this. Makes it hard to navigate, took forever to set up with their stock remote that has no keyboard.
Summary: I consider myself to be an audio / visual professional and a gear snob. I DJ in night clubs and worked as an A/V Tech at 5-star resort hotels. That being said, I definitely got more than what I paid for on this unit.
Pros: - Great way to centralize all your entertainment - More outputs than I need to allow expansion later - Crisp sound - Awesome frequency range - Lots of ways to connect - No proprietary audio or video connections - uses standard wires and cables
Cons: - Less than intuitive on screen setup menu, but still useful - No built in "Custom equalizer settings" to set to your own liking
Summary: Uses my existing Harmoney remote without having Geek squad to come out and cost me $100. This unit replaces my 13 year old receiver. I think the old transformer just died and I just paid the Geek squad $100 to program my remote because I just bought a new 55' TV from HH Greg.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: To the reviewer that says: No Digital Analog Converter? This receiver is equipped with a Burr Brown DAC. Burr Brown makes some of the best DAC's on the market. In order to get the full effect from this receiver you must output "Bitstream" from your Blu Ray player or other devices.
Pros: Great Sound, Lots of HDMI inputs
Cons: For the money, I cant find much to complain about.
Summary: I ranked myself as average tech knowledge as this is my first receiver I have purchased. I was unaware that this receiver could not input from my Wii (composite) or VCR (component) and output thru the HDMI cable to my TV.
Pros: Good price, good sound quality, lots of HDMI inputs. Included Composite & Component inputs. 4K pass thru. HDMI video/audio can pass thru receiver when it's turned off.
Cons: Not most straight forward setup, Zone 2 only outputs analog inputs (doesn't output from any HDMI in). No digital-analog conversion. Composite inputs can only be output to composite outputs. Same with Component ins/outs.
Summary: Awesome product...My husband was a different brand user for years and we decided to try this brand this time. Awesome quality for a reasonable price! Highly satisfied with product! Exceeded our expectations!
