Onkyo 450 watt 5.2 Home theater receiver

AVON RON, h.h. gregg
13 January 2015
  • 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. Very user friendly and even the radio works without an expensive antennae.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality

Solid Receiver

nicholas l., Newegg
28 November 2014
  • Summary: I currently have 1 month of use on this receiver after finally upgrading from an old Onkyo 6.1 receiver (that's not a typo, I had a 6.1 system). The now 10yr old receiver's features were far outdated and I wanted to have a setup that would allow me to ditch a lot of extra components (Bluetooth music receiver, media PC and all the component video out cables for HDMI).
  • Pros: Solid home receiver with lots of features and options. Built in Spotify player (not just a Bluetooth streaming feature), phone or tablet app support and a lot of cool setup and customization settings.
  • Cons: App support is a bit slow, and not as seamless as I hoped for. Setting up speaker settings took some effort.

Great Receiver for the money

Mike T., Newegg
24 November 2014
  • 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.

james d., Newegg
3 November 2014
  • 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.

Terrible products!

Andrew L., Newegg
15 October 2014
  • Pros: There are no pros to going with onkyo. Google what has happened with all of their previous receiver models.
  • Cons: No sound comes out of all units after a very short time. Good luck getting it fixed?

Great A/V Reciever

Michael C., Newegg
10 September 2014
  • Summary: Very Happy with the Receiver I'm getting great sound from Pandora via the Net which is a plus. And the audio and video is outstanding .
  • Pros: Great A/V Receiver Does a very good job with the sound and video. Connected with my network w/out a problem and has successfully reconnected whenever I have turned it back on. Installation was easy when you are using only HDMI cables. I did connect up my old CD player using analog cables w/ out a problem, not sure I will use it as my Blue Ray DVD player does a better job
  • Cons: Only thing I was not able to hook up to it was a very old cassette player which I do not use any more so not really a con.
