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 am writing this review not so much about the receiver, but its compatibility. Looking through the reviews I couldn't tell for sure if I would have issues using it with my TV, so I am writing this for others with the same question.
Summary: First, I would like to preference this by saying I am giving this a 5* rating for what you get for the money. Are their better Audio/Video Receivers (AVRs)? Of course, but no better for the money.
All the bells and whistles I was looking for at a great price.

Summary: Got my Onkyo TX-NR626 7-2 receiver hooked up today and I have to say I love it. Although it’s last year’s model it’s a steal at this price and it sounds terrific. Set up was a walk in the park, the Bluetooth works great, smartphone controller app works great.

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: Previously had an Onkyo TX 600 bought 10 years ago, decided to upgrade the home theater setup to HDMI and the benefits of upgraded sound tech. Its obvious right away things have come a long way in 10 years.
Excellent product, great variety, challenging setup

We had some challenges setting everything up - the instructions were a bit confusing, and not everything worked exactly as...

Summary: Buyer's Remorse on this purchase. I bought this unit in December. I did the basic hookup and planned to complete the work in the Spring. I can't say how disappointed I am with what I discovered while trying to further setup this unit.
