Love Onkyo overall, but can't recommend this model line of receivers.

  • Summary: This receiver sounds, looks and works great. At least for awhile. This particular model of receiver can have 2 serious issues. First, the HDMI card goes bad and you can't get any audio out of it.

Complete waste of my time and money

  • Summary: The product works well, when it is actually functional that is. I purchased the receiver in early 2013, within a few weeks I started to experience intermittent loss of picture and sound.

Spend the $ on the 717... unless you want a campfire.

  • Summary: In August 2013 I purchased the Onkyo TX-NR717 7.2 receiver for my home theater and LOVE it. I was replacing an older Sony 5.1 Dolby receiver which has done the job for more than 10 years. The Onkyo 717 has a clean sound and does a nice job of driving 7 speakers and 2 subwoofers.

One very bad experience.

  • Summary: I have read lots of reviews from one to five stars, but decided to take a chance despite some reviews stating similar problems. The features for this machine were very attractive. It arrived very fast and I was excited to open the box at 1AM to work on it.

The HDMI outputs keep going out.

  • Summary: I just got my 616 out of the box today. I was super excited when I finally got everything plugged in and completely went through the speaker setup. I started watching my DirecTV through receiver and after a few minutes my TV lost signal.

Buyer Beware

  • Summary: The receiver is loaded with features at a very reasonable price. The major problem is with the HDMI port to the TV. Between one to three months after purchase, the picture to your TV will lose it's signal. There is a firmware update from Onkyo that supposedly fixes the issue.

7 Months – 400 $ -- Amazon to rescue – Price of wisdom 80$

  • Summary: I got this receiver after a tonne of research online. Even CNET rates it as one of the best in 2012 . I must say that I enjoyed the receiver for the 7 months I used it. Easy to configure, awesome sound, nice GUI and great network features. But one fine morning..

Do not buy

Jebidiah, Amazon

  • Summary: I took the risk and it was not worth it the HDMI inputs still do not work even with the new update. Customer service sucks I ended up buying a Pioneer SC-61 Elite and couldnt be happier. Do yourself a favor save time and frustration and do not buy this product.

Worst experience ever!

Amazon
21 September 2012
  • Summary: The sound was good on this unit and I loved the feature per price ratio but it has to actually work to be of value. The 616 was very easy to setup and sounded great but it took only a day or two to realize that this receiver was not ready for prime time.

Nice features, but, at a minimum, it really needs to work.

Michael S. Dempsey "mike from lincoln", Amazon
1 August 2012
  • Summary: Like many others on the blogs, and here, the unit was a lemon on arrival. It's a nice unit in terms of setting up and operating. I spent considerable time running wire for the speakers (Fluance plus two older paradigm floor speakers), only to hear a loud pop when I turned on the unit.
