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. We had some challenges setting everything up - the instructions were a bit confusing, and not everything worked exactly as...
Summary: I have ONKYO receivers in the past and this is a pretty good one for the money. The unit may get hot and it will be the end of the sound experience for you! so, I recommend NOT to stuck up the unit; if it is possible use open / grill shelves, or use one shelf for the receiver and make sure the...
Pros: one compact design. It doesn't get hot as I thought so (make sure to have well ventilated shelf, do NOT stack the receiver(s) with other equipment). The set-up was very easy with the basic set-up page instructions. The supplied set-up microphone and TV-base instructions were clear and easy to fol...
Cons: I am not too much satisfy with the Audyssey speaker calibration, I done my own manual set up later on. The remote control capabilities are great however there is no back-light and it is enough to drop an egg for me.
Summary: Since I am a fan of audio equipment, I usually replace my receiver every 2-3 years. I purchased the Onkyo TX-NR626 on WOOT a little over a year ago. This unit replaced a Yamaha RX-V671. I will try to leave things out of this review that other reviews have already talked about.
Now it is Chromecast or Roku which will not give me audio like the MHL

Summary: Fits my surround system perfectly, however, I was not told that it is INCOMPATIBLE with my Galaxy S-5 phone for a MHL connection. I have a flat screen Samsung tv that does not have mirroring capabilities so the wire MHL was very important.
Summary: This thing sounds great — my bookshelf S38s (JBLs with 8" drivers) sound are really shining with this amp. I also really like that they have real binding posts — unlike other amps in the category that you have to use bare wire connections.
Pros: Clean Audio, Easy Setup, Room Acoustic Calibration Easy, Solid binding posts, Plenty of HDMI ins and outs, WiFi setup easy and feedback continuous, When connecting to BlueTooth-receiver automatically switches to BT connection.
Cons: Turning on or off TV while audio is output will cause audio to pause monementarily, Can only pair Bluetooth while in BT mode (minor), When disconnecting BT receiver does not revert to prior input

Summary: It met most of my expectations. The speaker setup program worked great. I use the receiver with a wireless headphone at the same time as my wife listens to the sound system. It took a while to determine that I had to hook up my wireless headphone base set to the analog output.
Everything about this receiver is great, especially the OnSale $299 price I paid

Summary: Everything about this receiver is great, especially the OnSale $299 price I paid. The only complaint, and this is relatively substantial, is that the powered Zone 2 does NOT pass through HDMI sources.
