Great while it works

Joseph Monnone, Amazon
27 March 2013
  • Summary: This receiver is great insofar as sound reproduction, it tends to run pretty hot; very, very hot. I gave it two stars because about 24 months after I purchased it the sound stopped working, completely. I checked online and found others who had the same problem, sound mysteriously just stopped. Everything else turned on and looked fine, but the indicator that displays how many speakers are connected is blank and there's absolutely no sound.

Have been using for over a year

NOVA, Amazon
22 October 2011
  • Summary: I came to Amazon to check the price of this receiver after a year of use. I was very surprised to find such bad experiences with this particular model. I wont go into specs here but as a piece of equipment that has been used extensively in my house for over a year, I am very happy thus far with the use, feel and quality of the product.

Everything it is is supposed to be and do

paulcesq, Amazon
9 April 2011
  • Summary: The 708 is pretty much everything I expected it to be, and does all that it says it will. Setup was a little complex (I had printed out the manual before delivery, but reading about it is not the same as getting it up and running). First, I hooked it up wo my network (via Ethernet cable directly to router) to check on the latest software (it had arrived with the latest update). then into the media room, for the slow process of connecting.

3D Interface with DirecTV NOW works

William O. Wood "Bill Wood", Amazon
6 December 2010
  • Summary: February 1, 2010 update: My HR-21 problem appears to have been corrected by a DirecTV software update. Today both DirecTV channel 103 and 106 work through the Onyko TX-NR708 HDMI connection. I bought this TX-NR708 to replace an excellent performing TX-SR804 to gain the new 3D capability with DirecTV's added 3D offerings. However, it will not pass the DirecTV's 3D HDMI output to my new Panasonic TC-PX65VT25 Plamsa.

PC IN issue and 3D issue

Andy Milne, Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I chose the TX-NR708 because of its video de-interlace and up-scaling features. Who'd have thunk a modern flat panel Samsung PN63C7000 63-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (Black) would display 480i as 480i? It looked awful! My old PRO-510HD would de-interlace 480i and display it really well. The TX-NR708 certainly resolved my Samsung's 480i issue. The TX-NR708 can up-scale everything to 1080p - but interestingly not everything looks better at 1080p.

Er hat nur EINEN (1) HDMI- Ausgang

superdummy2001 "Doing something right means n..., Amazon
13 November 2010
  • Summary: Hallo, die anderen Rezensionen, die bis zum heutigen Tag zu diesem Receiver geschrieben wurden, teile ich. Fehlerhaft ist leider die Beschreibung der HDMI- Ausgaenge, der 708 hat derer nur einen, nicht zwei. Dazu muss man den 808 bemuehen. - Zum Netzwerk noch eine Kleinigkeit, zumindestens bei mir hing der 708 eine weile und aktzeptierte nach dem StandBy das Netz gar nicht mehr. Dauerhaftes aktivieren von HDMI und Netzwerk ist ein Work-Around...

Top-Gerät zu Top-Preis

Peti, Amazon
4 October 2010
  • Summary: Top-Gerät zu Top-Preis, neueste Technik vorhanden (7.2-HDMI1.4-Internetradio...), viele HDMI-Eingänge auf der Rückseite ermöglichen Anschluss vieler Geräte. Sehr gute Beschreibung für rückseitige Anschlüsse. Nachteil: Internetradio ohne PC nicht editierbar, im Gerät selber nicht möglich bzw. schlecht beschrieben (hab`s noch nicht gefunden)...Kleines Manko: Beim Umschalten der Quelle hinkt das Bild dem Ton ca. 3sec nach.

Onyko TX-NR708 Top Sound mit kleinen Schwächen

Robert Geisler, Amazon
26 August 2010
  • Summary: Ich habe mir vor einigen Tagen den Onkyo TX-NR708 gekauft und möchte an dieser Stelle einige Worte über das Gerät verlieren. Vorab sei eine Liste der Gründe genannt, warum ich hier nicht alle Sterne geben kann: - Die 'Dynamic EQ'-Funktion verbessert zwar die Klangfülle, verursacht jedoch sehr starkes und deutlich hörbares Grundrauschen auf allen Kanälen, was den Höreindruck negativ beeinflusst. - Es gibt keine Möglichkeit, die eingemessenen 6 Hörpositionen umzuschalten.
