No HDMI video output

Adam G., Newegg
4 June 2014
  • Summary: Seriously considering my loyalties to Onkyo after getting one of their problem receivers and finding out how they deal with customer product repairs. When the product works, I love it but there is absolutely no excuse for any company to make something and then not support their own...
  • Pros: Great receiver up until it decided to die overnight
  • Cons: After a year of the unit working flawlessly, it decided to drop all HDMI video signal. I purchased this receiver to replace an older model without HDMI connections; the HDMI connections were the primary reason for buying it. I've always used Onkyo... I love the sound they put out and up until thi...

The pleasure and the pain

  • Summary: ** This review sounds pretty positive to begin with but trust the second line. Too burnt out on this crap hardware to rewrite this whole mess ** DO NOT PURCHASE THIS RECEIVER!! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Now you can read over the rest. I'm starting to get used to this receiver. Finally.

  • Pros: This has the Pandora Radio feature where you can listen to music from the Net. I have it hooked to my old Pioneer receiver and have sound pumped throughout the house.

Would not recommend this product!

GT "GT", Amazon
8 February 2013
  • Summary: We like others were hesitant to buy this receiver with all of the bad reviews. We decided to take a chance with it. We can tell you it is not worth taking a chance. The first indication of problems was when we turned it on and there was a loud buzzing/ humming noise coming from the unit.

Great when it worked...

Mr. S., Newegg
2 November 2012
  • Summary: At the time it was a good price and when I hooked it up it sounded fantastic. I was thrilled. Now I see why it was so inexpensive. You get what you pay for.
  • Pros: Easy setup, great sound.
  • Cons: Died after a bit more than a year of use. And I hardly used it! It sits in our basement and is used when we watch movies...maybe a few times a month. It started to act up when turned on it wouldn't produce any sound. Changing the channel somehow triggered it to turn on so it worked. Now it doesn'...

Lots of features, not fully baked yet

Tary, Amazon
28 August 2012
  • Summary: I am on my second TX-NR616 now, I sent the first one back but both units have the same problem. If the receiver has been off for a while, I am unable to turn it on with the remote control. Once I turn the unit on using the power button on the receiver then the remote is fully functional.

Disappointing

Margaret Hanson, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this receiver . I have waited for years to upgrade my old Pioneer. I was ready to pull the trigger on the predecessor to this receiver, the TX-NR606 about a year ago, when I saw the release stats on this one. I waited for 6 months to order.

Sounded great for a hot minute

Kevin F., Newegg
16 August 2012
  • Pros: While it worked I was in aural heaven. The sound was crisp and full and it filled the room like I've never heard before. I put on a Freeland CD and the quality of the music was truly amazing. The Auddysey calibration was wonderful too - I loved having it work that out by itself.
  • Cons: After about 2 hours the receiver shut off. I turned it back on and it shut off again. I turned it back on and it said 'Check SP Wire'. So I assume I had some exposes wiring or something somewhere. I ran through all of my connections and decided to get some banana ends for my rears since there was...
