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.

Works great - has done everything I've needed

C. Gill "Man En Route", Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this unit after reading reviews of several units in the same price range that had the features I needed. So far, it has worked well. The included remote has replaced seven other remotes that I have, including a learning 'smart' remote (Philips Prestigo SRU8008).

  • 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...

Everything it is is supposed to be and do

  • 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).

Onkyo TX-NR708

oysterhead, Amazon
19 March 2011
  • Summary: Retracting my previous rating, in part. The remote is now not working, and I'm very concerned that these recent postings are indications that this great deal and great sounding receiver with so many great features will not prove to have been the deal I was looking for.

Pleased So Far

R. C. Little, Amazon
20 January 2011
  • Summary: Had this a couple weeks and watched plenty of movies / listened to plenty of music. Pandora and Internet Radios can be slow sometime. The iPod and Pandora image output is pretty old-fashioned, and could use an update via firmware upgrade.

Works great for me

Sonic Vision, Amazon
17 January 2011
  • Summary: I think this is my first review, so sorry if it's not too detailed, or good. Just want to say I got this receiver a few weeks ago, and I love it. I would have given it 4.5 stars if that was option but it wasn't, and I can't give 5 as that would imply it's perfect, but nothing is, as far as my...

  • 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.

Very Satisfied

fcWA, Amazon
23 October 2010
  • Summary: It was time to replace my older Onkyo unit with a new receiver to decode the new blueray formats. Of course I had to look at Onkyo but I also looked at Marantz. I agonized for months to decide...Marantz music quality vs.
