Sound Goes Out

Anthony K., Newegg
22 July 2015
  • Pros: Works great when it works. The sound output goes out entirely for all channels. Even out of warranty Onkyo has recognized this issue is widespread. If your unit was shipped within a certain date you can still get it fixed for free. On their website there is a place to enter your part number to se...
  • Cons: Broke, but they fixed it

Not bad but can get much better!

Jamie S., Newegg
16 June 2013
  • Pros: Price and easy setup.
  • Cons: random blue screen flashes. Only happens when receiver warms up and I have had to do a factory reboot to correct this issue once. Seems to be common and caused by a overheating issue.

Nice features but buggy

  • Summary: This receiver had most all of the features I was looking for in a home theater receiver. 7.1, HDMI support from multiple sources, nice sound when listening to music, ability to hook up an iPod to the USB port and ability to add HD radio through the Port input.
  • Pros: Flexibility - lots of features
  • Cons: Buggy firmware - often requiring a reset

User Review

Daniel A., Newegg
17 October 2012
  • Pros: I bought one over a year ago and loved it so much I bought another. I was not impressed with the reviews on the TX-NR616 so went with this.
  • Cons: The box showed up with a boot sized hole, and one of the styrofoam supports inside crushed. The unit looked OK and powered on but the HDMI inputs were all dead. Sent it back for a refund. I must have got the last one because they are discontinued now. Maybe I'll try a Yamaha this time.

Great Product, Cheap Parts

Vin, Amazon
25 April 2012
  • Summary: Purchased this product in at the bgining of November 2011. Has worked great and very pleased. But then I have started receiving flickering and problems with the video. This has not been consistent but happens off and on now for a month and from what I have read this is common.

Burning Plasma

Mark L., Newegg
3 March 2012
  • Summary: I was excited getting this unit expecting a great experience. It does have a steep leaning curve, nothing the manual doesn't cover. Much of my use will be Zone 2 audio out for my whole house stereo speakers. The first unit received Zone 2 output was DOA on both powered and un-powered outputs.
  • Pros: Full functions with plenty of options.
  • Cons: NET source screen saver function missing. Remote has a lag.

Solid Platform - Needs UI Redesign

Michael F., Newegg
25 January 2012
  • Pros: Great platform/amp/specs/features/sound.
  • Cons: Some things I didn't like in order of annoyance - Slow to boot up (60 seconds? - too long I really hate slow devices - this should be a really simple device to boot - might need a faster chip for $10 but I'd have paid extra for that). The Onkyo WiFi dongle can't even stream pandora without skippi...

Onkyo TX-NR609

Drawband, CNET
8 January 2012
  • Summary: This unit should be plan B if you are going to buy a reciver. I whould look at some others first. I have call the company left my phone along with the problem. Been 4 days now no return. I call back 1/7/12. This time it would not let me leave a number.
  • Pros: Plays will with my Tv that is all I can say.
  • Cons: THE SUPPORT COULD NOT BE ANY WORSE. I have a PS3 and every time I go to use it withe the 609 I have to go back and forth from game to dvd button until it clears up.It is like I have to track it just like the old VCR's .
