4K pass-through and 7.2 surround works great, when it works.

Summary: Bought this when I went to a 4K TV and immediately it was having problems with HDMI audio dropping every 5-15 minutes. Then one day it just wouldn't output any sound (HDMI, tuner, nothing). Took it to the factory authorized repair place and they did a factory reset and sent me on my way.
Pros: 4K pass-through, Wifi (can use app to control), upscaling.
Cons: No OSD while using 4K, and keep having to send in for factory warranty repair.
Summary: Worked fine for about a year, until it realized the warrantee expired, then it decided to stop working. At first, the HDMI would go out after about 10min, but the problem got worse until none of the HDMI inputs worked at all.
Summary: I know that I could have had the 636 or even the 646 -I purchased this as sort of a trial to see if I like Onkyo products. As you can see by my middle of the road review, I have mixed feelings.
Decent hardware, great sound, some strange features.

Summary: Great sound, fair price, plenty of versatility. It's a little slow on startup. It doesn't handle usb hard drive media especially well, often times excluding files that should play, or just hanging up while trying to initialize.
Summary: Would be nice if the menu was better. You really need to have a TV connected to this to easily navigate through the menu. Perhaps this isnt an issue for most setups but I was just using this to drive outdoor patio speakers (so I do not currently need video) but I ended up attaching a small old LCD...

Summary: I probably should not have bought this item in the first place.. I do not have a home theater set-up, only two speakers. When this item was hooked up it caused "booming" sounds that were very disturbing. I labored on for awhile. The next thing to happen was it was causing my tv picture to break up.
Pros: THE MIC SETS UP ANY ROOM PERFECTLY.GREAT SOUND FOR THE PRICE
Cons: SLOW RESPONSE WHEN YOU SWITCH FROM ANY SELECTION,LIKE DVD TO CABLE,YOU CAN HEAR THE RELAY SWITCHING. SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO TURN YOUR TV OFF AND BACK ON TO COMPLETE THE SWITCHING, OR YOU GET A BLANK SCREEN

Summary: The receiver is fantastic! I love all the audio options and the variety of inputs this product can handle. It's fun to find just the right sound for every audio experience.
