Summary: Had this about 2 years, one moring went to turn it on, no speaker icons, no sound, no network. HDMI board has fried and from searching the net seems to be a recurring issue with this modle. No upscaling with ipod Universal doc.
Summary: This is a good HD receiver for casual TV viewing and audio. It has many features that can easily be accessed through the on-screen menu. Audio and video pass-through quality are on par for this price range. However ...
Summary: This unit was great but the remote receiver stopped working in less than 6 months. Luckily I have a local Onkyo service center to try my luck for warranty repair. This seems to be a pattern with Onkyo in my experience.
Summary: bought this with Polk monitor 70. so I don't think it's the speaker.
Pros: easy navigation menu and setup procedures. button selection are nicely label.
Cons: had to crank volume up to 50% before it's audible. at 60% then it was loud. no sure what wrong. I've updated the firmware but did not help. Hear other on A@zon had similar issue. debating whether to return or call Onk%o tech.

Pros: Setup using HDMI really cleans up the cable mess that I had before. Audyssey MultiEQ setup with the supplied mic made speaker configuration a breeze. The internet radio worked well and I might actually use it. Great deal of connection flexibility and input assignment. I setup to upconvert to 1080...
Cons: Coax input from the SPDIF of my PC's Sound Blaster Audigy card intermits (drops out) frequently. I had to switch to a multi-channel hookup to get acceptable audio continuity playing movies with PowerDVD9. Several times on start up the unit has had no output until I pull the AC power for a couple ...
Excerpt: Na jaren luisterplezier van Denon overgestapt naar een Onkyo 708. Het geluid is super, vooral bij films. Na bijna 2 jaar valt af en toe het geluid weg. Blijkt een bekende klacht te zijn van dit type. Sta op het punt om de 708 naar de repair te brengen.
Summary: Das Gerät ist eigentlich wunderbar kleine Mängel hat es aber. Die drei Sterne kommen Zustande da dieses Gerät recht teuer ist. Ansonnsten könnte man mehr Sterne geben. Ich gehe garnicht auf die Positiven Dinge ein das Gerät hat genug davon.
