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.
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
Excellent product, great variety, challenging setup

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.
I paid $299 for this unit and feel like I got well worth my money for the product

Summary: I've used this receiver for about a week now and I have no complaints with it, especially with the over 50% off retail price! I paid $299 for this unit and feel like I got well worth my money for the product. I've owned ONKYO in the past and never had any issues. Only issue is heat.
Sound quality is good and FEELS like a step up from my old ...

Summary: I replaced an older Onkyo 6.1 channel receiver with the TX-NR626. The older Onkyo had zero HDMI ports (just optical audio), which had become a major hindrance with the proliferation of devices.
