Great Receiver for the money

Mike T., Newegg
4 weeks ago
  • 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. If you output PCM that means that the player itself will decode the audio track. Not the receiver.
  • Pros: Great Sound, Lots of HDMI inputs
  • Cons: For the money, I cant find much to complain about.

TX-NR535

james d., Newegg

  • 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. I wanted a single point to change between my inputs but now I still would need to change my TV source to HDMI, composite or component in. This is partially my fault as I am still learning what receivers can & can't do.
  • 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.

Good consumer grade AV Receiver and decent value

  • Summary: i recently started having audio problems with the 2010 version of this receiver,  so I needed to replace it.  This receiver is very similar to my old one in terms of controls, inputs, outputs etc.   So I decided that it would be easiest just to get this updated version - and hope that I get more than 4 years out of this one.   So far it's working great.  The thing I most like is the auto setup for surround sound using a supplied mic in a special input for that purpose.
  • Pros: Actual front panel controls, straightforward config, auto balancing on surround sound setup, good sound, lots of inputs
  • Cons: TV onscreen interface is equivalent to DOS 3.0 or Windows 3.1 - yikes. More Network Apps would be nice.

Onkyo TX-NR535

JimP, Crutchfield
12 July 2014
  • Summary: This is the third Onkyo AV receiver that I have purchased from Crutchfield. I have found these receivers to be reliable and a great value. The 535 was easy to set up. The unit joined my household network easily. The Bluetooth also was seamless in detecting my iPod. The sound is terrific in the room where it is located. I have built in very high quality surround sound speakers with a Boston Acoustic subwoofer. The delivery was flawless and rapid.
  • Pros: Easy set-up. Great sound. A very good value. I have purchased many items from Crutchfield and they have not disappointed.
  • Cons: None, yet.

Nice Receiver

jon doe, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I'm using it in a 15 X 15 foot room with 5.1 small surround speakers and sub. It works for my needs. It has some things I'd change, like the universal remote functions not controlling all of the functions you need on your tv/dvd/bluray units. But if you're looking for a decent receiver and don't want to or have the extra money to, put into a more expensive receiver then this one will do the job.
  • Pros: Has plenty of HDMI plugins Good display on front with dimmer Like that it can stream radio through multiple online radio stations, and the ability to add them as favorites. Bluetooth works well, but there's no adjustment for bass/treble at all really, and only by accident did I find the button that is only ON The Unit itself that's called Music Optimizer, which helped some. but why manufacturer's don't add the ability to control mp3 or streamed music's bass and treble...
  • Cons: Though it has many HDMI inlets, it has some component and other video inlets but no outlets for pass through. Which is specifically why I wanted this unit, so that if I wanted to watch tv, blu ray, or play console games that i could just use the tv speakers. which I can, if I manually turn them back on. Problem is the receiver looses it's cec link and you have to go in and set it up again in the tv menu. Partly my tv and partly in linking the 2.

A good deal!

  • Summary: Many, many features that come with it. Good value.
  • Pros: The pros include the self calibrate which works well, the blue tooth is easy to use and the Net connection can connect via DLNA to my 1 Gb hard drive
  • Cons: The app for remote control works OK but is very basic. The DLNA only included my music, not pictures or videos
