Summary: I have long been a fan of both Integra and Onkyo products for about the past 12 years. I recently purchased the 626 based on it being a Sound and Vision Top Pick for 2013. It worked great for about a week then the audio signal dropped out of the HDMI connections. Even switching it to 2 CH PCM only didn't fix it. Had to switch it to Analog only in order to hear my 3 HDMI sources.
Summary: If your using this receiver for for advanced Home Theater set up please take note. This receiver is not compatible with many Samsung smart TVs and would not sink with new Samsung 7050 65" inch smart 3D TV. Home Theater company I hired to set up theater room found out this receiver is not compatible with the PRO CONTROL REMOTE CONTROL THAT USES RF & IR FLASHERS.
Summary: This is receiver number 2. The first one was DOA since it would not play any form of sound through an HDMI input. Amazon promptly sent me a new one which worked for almost 6 months before it developed the exact same problem as the DOA one. The receiver is awesome when it works. Unfortunately, they seem to be poorly built and extremely unreliable.
Summary: The remote completely stopped working after 1 month. I discovered online this has been an issue with Onkyo receivers. In the process of trying to have it replaced. The outcome will determine whether I ever buy electronics online again! First time in dozens of purchases from Amazon the product failed.
