Solid Bang for Buck at $300 - get a USB fan...

Hans L., Newegg
1 week ago
  • Pros: Onboard streaming audio clients(Pandora, Spotify, etc) Excellent Android/iPhone clients for remote control Web GUI for configuration and favorite web channel addition. 2nd speaker output zone with independent source and volume control Supports command line commands from a unix host for volume and power and other things. Max volume setting... nice if you have kids. Auto speaker level tuning with the Audessy mic.
  • Cons: Gets warm when operational. This is normal per Onkyo however I connected a USB fan to the front USB port and stuck the fan behind the receiver to pull air out the back of my TV stand. This is only powered when the unit is on. No more heating up. I ordered an AC Infinity unit from Am.zon. This is my only con with this unit for my use.

Onkyo TX-NR626

Frederico F., Newegg

  • Summary: Great receiver for the price. Everything works and got it up and running with the rest of my home theater gear in 30 minutes. If you are familiar with Onkyo receivers, this is very easy to set up and work with This is my first network-enabled receiver and I love all the options it gives me - Pandora, Spotify, etc. Newegg sent this to me in the plain factory box - so the whole world could see what was sitting on my doorstep.
  • Pros: 1. Price - Black Friday sale at $275.00 made this a compelling purchase 2. Easy Audyssey setup - hook up the included microphone and position it in 3 listening spots and you're done. Of course, you can tweak it manually too. 3. Network connectivity (wired and wireless) very easy to work with 4. 6 HDMI inputs give me a lot of room for expansion. 5. Front panel is well laid out and fairly intuitive, albeit kinda boring 6. Back panel has connections for everything you ma...
  • Cons: 1. Wish it had HD Radio 2. Very sparse paper documentation (full manual in PDF provided on CD) 3. Remote looks like it did 5 years ago 4. Runs a bit hotter than my previous receiver (Onkyo TX-SR608)

false ad

  • Pros: honestly I havent tried this receiver out yet since I have just received it
  • Cons: On monday 11/16 I went looking for receivers and ended up getting this one since they had an add for a free mtx surround sound system which was a $200 value I believe for free which swayed me into going with this unit. When buying the unit I figured I would use 2 prepaid rebate cards that I had gotten in the mail when I bought tires a few months back. The system wouldnt let me use the cards because it was trying to charge everything to a card with $70 so it kept getti...

In response to Cheri W's review

Geoffrey L., Newegg
19 November 2014
  • Summary: I thought Cheri's review was a bit harsh! Anyone who's been "in the know" with Onkyo receivers over the last four years knows it's common knowledge about the HDMI board issue. Not every Onkyo receiver suffers the HDMI plague but it's common enough that Onkyo will do what it takes to clear up the problem. My TX-NR807 ran great past it's 2 yr warranty, in the third year of ownership, the HDMI board went south. Did Onkyo blow me off?? NO!
  • Pros: Great customer service
  • Cons: NONE

Onkyo was once a great product

Cheri W., Newegg
19 November 2014
  • Summary: Take the time to call onkyo's customer support before you purchase. See how well they take care of there customers after The Point of Sale. Each time I have called it was over an hour wait. (I have called 6 times total) 3 times for my unit. 2 times for friends unit and 1 time for are churches unit. (all of which I recommended Onkyo to them).
  • Pros: It works great till it fails. Typically the hdmi board stops working within the first year of use.
  • Cons: Onkyo used to be my go to brand. In the last 10 years there product quality has gone down to the point that I would never purchase another onkyo product again. Please do some research before you buy.

Excellent sound quality!

  • Summary: Excellent, high-quality stereo receiver. Very powerful. Excellent sound quality. My only concern is that the documentation is a little hard to follow and takes some trial-and-error. But overall, an excellent buy.

Milo01, h.h. gregg

  • Summary: Home theater system. I like the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It was an open box and did not include manual or DVD disk. Downloaded manual from Onkyo website. Finally got it going after about 3 hours. Dvd's look good with 1080p.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
  • Cons: Confusing / Bad Remote Control

Had a problem with internal power protection but working fine after 1 year

Vinicius, Amazon
14 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this and it had its protection system (internal fuses) with issues. Not sure if the system was damaged during installation, but after a couple of days, it makes the system to turn off few seconds after power is on. I could not return the item as I took it overseas... Sent to a local maintenance shop and they charged me something in the range of $100 to fix it. I have this for a year now and is heavily used and works perfectly after the repair.
