The pleasure and the pain

Apollumi "Amazon is USPS hell", Amazon
11 October 2013
  • 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. I was about to throw it in the yard yesterday. It sounds "awesome" and I have been very impressed with the noticeable improvement in sound quality over my very dated old receiver.

What the heck is C-net thinking.

  • Summary: The receiver keeps loosing HDMI connection to my PC. I don't understand why Cnet gave it such a good review. Even after FW update that was supposed to fix the issue, nothing got fixed. Never buying Onkyo again.
  • Pros: not very expensive
  • Cons: This receiver has major issues with HDMI

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. We turned the unit off and turned it back on and it cleared up. However you had to turn the volume up to 60 to 70 out of 99 when you watched a bluray, just to have good volume.

Disappointing

Amazon Customer, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: I really wanted to like this receiver Onkyo TX-NR616 7.2-Channel THX Select2 Plus Certified Network A/V Receiver(Black) . 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.

Lots of features, not fully baked yet

Tary, Amazon

  • 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. I have been dealing with Onkyo support and there have been two firmware updates since I got the receiver about a month ago but neither update has fixed the problem.

War mein letztes Onkyo Gerät

Eric "richyb42", Amazon

  • Summary: Über die optische Qualität lässt sich streiten, ein anderer schreibt hier was von „Edel“, da kann ich nur lachen. Optisch ist das kein Highlight, Allein der Lautstärkeregler eiert und schaut billig aus. Wer Onkyo von früher kennt weiss das. Aber auch technisch, und das ist eigentlich wichtig, taugt der absolut nicht. Meiner ging von Anfang an nicht gescheit, rosa stichiges Bild, manchmal gar kein Bild, Tonstörungen bzw. Aussetzer.

Wahnsinns Funktionen, aber äußerst aufwendige Installation

Jan-Malte, Amazon
11 March 2014
  • Summary: Nach dem ich den Reciever ausgepackt habe, war ich schon beeindruckt von der Größe und Optik. Ich habe Schritt für Schritt alles installiert, und nach etwa drei Stunden war er betriebsbereit. Da ist mir aber schon aufgefallen, was der Reciever für eine Hitze macht! Das Gerät dient als kleine Heizung und wird wirklich sehr heiß. Von der Leistung war ich am Ende auch nicht sehr begeistert. Der Reciever ging zurück.

Viele Features aber Fehler an der Basis

HPZ "freak02156", Amazon
22 September 2012
  • Summary: Nach langem hin und her und dem Lesen einiger Testberichte etc. fand ich den ONKYO eingentlich die richtige Wahl. Ein Freund betreibt den Receiver ohne Probleme so konnte ich Ihn ohne weitere Bedenken auch bestellen. 1. Minuspunkt - das erste Gerät das Amazon lieferte war defekt. Das kann vorkommen. Gerät wurde anstandslos ausgetauscht. Super Amazon! 2. Als dann das funktionierende Gerät in Betrieb ging war ich zu Beginn vom Klang etc. schon beeindruckt.
