Onkyo TX-NR616 was a cautious buy but so far It's working fine.

  • Summary: First let me say that price was the main reason why I purchased this unit. I needed a new receiver to replace a non networked Yamaha unit in my bedroom which is setup for 5.1 but at under $320, this was a steal.

  • Summary: First I want to say I love this unit, for the price it can't be beat. I upgraded from a budget 7.2 onkyo unit that died after four years. (I think something was wrong with it however. The thing got so hot you couldn't even touch it.
