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: 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: 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 researched and investigated a lot and when I seen a great price on this I jumped fast and was able to do more additions for upcoming needs with all my gear. Very happy with where my system is at and after all my comparisons with most of the competing units in this "midrange" level, my final result...
Pros: Easy to set up. Nice interface. Great audio and clear video. (Upscales great!) Plenty of connections for the future.
Cons: Does not have Airplay.....will have that taken care of with an Apple TV unit that is needed anyway.
Summary: This box does not support the upcoming need for Apple's Airplay but.....an Apple TV unit will make it happen and the additional uses with that makes it so worth it. (These are inexpensive and Apple is going to be pushing some incredible advances within this format.
Pros: This receiver has a lot for the money and is really easy to do the initial setup. Compared it in a large local sound/video room and it compared SUPER favorably to much higher priced stuff. The projector is now shooting super clear images to the screen and the audio has taken a huge leap forwards ...
Cons: Cons....I researched heavily and knew what this receivers strengths and weaknesses were (All products have their own set of these.) and at the price we purchased this for, I'd be a fool to whine and will put my observations in "other thoughts".
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: I got this receiver back in the beginning of August. I love it! The sound quality is incredible, options are aplenty. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does not come with a pre-out; whereas a lot of similar even lower-end receivers do.
Pros: -Incredible sound quality. -Easy to use on-screen setup interface. -THX certified. -7.2 -Network capability
