Summary: For the price, I could not be happier with my purchase. Design: Pretty much standard design, nothing fancy, standard run of the mill appearance for an AVR. Volume knob lights up when display is set to bright, I have this feature turned off. Features: Loaded with features, see product description.
Summary: You gotta be high tech person for this receiver. It does just about everything you would want in a receiver. Got this receiver pushing a set of polks and are they sweet , the sound is so clear and rich.
Summary: After two months with this product I can definitely state that this is an excellent receiver. I would consider myself to be a novice user and, so far, I have been able to use the unit with no issues.
Summary: Very good product BUT!!!! It differs from European models =(( I've known it only from manual... 1. It has no "pure audio" mode. 2. It doesn't support 4 Om speakers! (European model does) And I have 4-8 Om speakers... Well, be accurate when buying smth like this...
Summary: We were very excited to receive this AV receiver since we're well aware that ONKYO is a good brand. We actually bought ONKYO TX-NR609 7.2 Channel Network THX Certified A/V Receiver to replace a 20-plus old unit.
Summary: This is the first time that I have written a review, but I felt it was necessary. This is a great receiver. I upgraded from a 11 year old Sony V333ES. I have been researching 7.1 Receivers for a while for an upgrade, and my Sony started crapping out on me I knew it was time.
Summary: I had a Yamaha RX-V1800 that lasted four years. It probably could have been repaired, but it would have cost more than buying this Onkyo so what was the point? I have a 52" LCD (Sharp), an Oppo BDP-93 BD/DVD, Cox HD cable, a Denon CD changer, a Wii, and Aperion Audio speakers (5T, 5B, 5C) and an...
Summary: I was looking for something that a guy in his mid-60s could connect and operate a 5-speaker home-theater system without investing hours of study. I compared the Sony, Yamaha and Denton mid-range A/V receivers before choosing the Onkyo TX-NR 609 to replace my TEAC and SONY units.
Summary: It was time to upgrade and I wanted networking with my next receiver. That was my deciding factor along with a decent price for this NR-609. It had enough juice to power my Infiniti towers and surrounds and Polk center and sub.
Summary: A good product. Of course it is complex, but then audio visual media is complicated. The set up is easy and I followed the firmware update via USB without problem. Quality is good video output on HD is superior to the Sony 720 that it replaced. The Sony having failed after just 18 mths.
