Would be nice if the menu was better

Jeffrey M., Amazon
2 weeks ago
  • 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...

Good, but not for 720 TVs

Dan Janson, Amazon
7 March 2015
  • Summary: Best functionality and features in it's price range. However, it does not seem to be able to properly display my PC screen in the native resolution of my TV. I have a 720p TV, which is unusual.

easy switch between any audio (blue tooth) or TV sources

Natali, Amazon

  • Summary: I tried to use it due to its convenience. Single entry point to TV and audio signal, easy switch between any audio (blue tooth) or TV sources, managing volume output and data source with remote control . For testing got only one Pioneer SP-FS52-LR - loudspeaker. Testing results: 1.

Strange behaviour

Alan S., Newegg
1 February 2015
  • Summary: I have a problem with my TV not picking up the signal when i change sources. If i switch from one to another the TV will show no source. It can be resolved by switching the receiver off and then back on again, but i get the feeling that is not a "feature"
  • Pros: Great price, nice features
  • Cons: You need to pay attention to the wiring of the speakers, not as simple as you think.

Good Product - Could Be Great

Thomas Z., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: Overall, at the very initial stages of ownership, I am satisfied. For the price it’s hard to beat the sound combined with all of the features provided. That said, it definitely has areas where Onkyo probably could have tightened up their build standards just a tad in order to have made this a no...
  • Pros: - Sound quality; Once I was able to find what I was looking for in the fairly confusing setup/configuration menu it turns out to be very nice sound. It simply took me awhile to get to the speaker level calibration window. It’s simply good and with more than enough power to push my Energy 5.1+Bose...
  • Cons: - Bluetooth: I got you. How can BT be a PRO AND a CON? Easy. While it’s nice to be able to connect the phone to it, it is not a transmitter, only a receiver. This means that I can’t connect my trusty, much loved Sennheiser MM400s so I can listen to my sports or whatever at 2am Saturday morning wh...

Onkyo, Thank you for a great receiver, but please improve zone 2 abilities.

MarioV73, Amazon
20 January 2015
  • Summary: First of, the good stuff. Would I had the need for an inexpensive 7.1 receiver with lots of HDMI inputs, options, and power to be the centerpiece of my home theater system, I would have given the TX-NR626 five starts.

good value with some missed connections (no pun intended)

nate357159, Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, I'm glad I got this, it has a lot of good features and is a well-engineered piece. Sound and video quality is great, the amount of tuning and customization is nice, and the overall unit I consider a good purchase. Having said that, this receiver fell short for me in a few areas: 1.

I bought this for the great price and A/V controls

Benjamin, Amazon
13 January 2015
  • Summary: I have always had onkyo products. The ARC technology is new and is not as straight forward as one may think. Other sound inputs are usually set by the user, but the arc depends on a handshake with the TV.

Amazing features, simple bluetooth, complicated settings and options.

IntenseLemon, Amazon
22 December 2014
  • Summary: Has everything I could imagine needing. More ports and features than I know what to do with. But the sheer number of controls, options, and equalizers is just mind-boggling. The software has so many ill-described options I can be sure I don't have my sound optimized.

Mostly good for a reurbished unit - but the sound has dropped out randomly, for short periods, more than once.

G.Britt, Amazon
10 November 2014
  • Summary: Lots of options on this unit - I bought it refurbished and notice that too often the sound drops out. It could be to excessive over-heating as others have noticed, but the infrequency is baffling. It's possible the culprit is another electronic device, but I suspect its the Onkyo.
