Summary: Previously had an Onkyo TX 600 bought 10 years ago, decided to upgrade the home theater setup to HDMI and the benefits of upgraded sound tech. Its obvious right away things have come a long way in 10 years.
Summary: After retiring my old TX-NR800 Series because of the infamous HDMI board issues, I had sworn to never buy another Onkyo receiver, as everyone to whom I had recommended an Onkyo receiver had to face HDMI board issues.
Excerpt: added this to a SONY 52XBR, POLK RM surrounds, XBOX 360, Apple TV & Harmony remote. Very easy plug and play setup. The microphone audio setup was quick & effective. Much fuller sound than with my old HK247. A powered Zone 2 is great for kitchen/outside speakers.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: although as with probably all devices that are connected to other devices , with their own settings and remotes, for example , this device connected to a Samsung smart tv , and an xbox. ,for me anyway it , it gets complicated, particularly if you are trying to use a common remote.
Summary: This is the second time I've purchased this unit. Pros: It was the only one that I could find that had 2-zone so I could send music to another room while someone watched movie, Bluetooth, WIFI. 7.1 turntable hook-up. Now $299! Paid $449.00 six month ago. Cons: Its a little big and heavy.
