Excerpt: Easy to set up, basically ran through the onscreen wizard prompts and was up and running in no time. I did re-adjust the speaker volumes a little but the default settings were good and I tweaked it to my ears.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
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: We bought a Sony receiver before this that was a nightmare & we returned it. This Onkyo was on sale when we were looking for a replacement and ended up being the same price. So far it has been great.
Pros: Everything so far has worked and it was easy to set up. Smartphone control, network connectivity are great. CEC control actually works with our tv & satellite receiver. Zone 2 output to our home speaker system works well. Sounds very good after tweaking the Audyssey setup.
Cons: Manual is on cd rather than printed. (At least better than referring you to a manual on their website as some do).
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.
