Summary: I was very happy to see my computer not having any sound formats that it couldn't play. Also that I no longer have to use an optical cable to get surround sound.
Pros: • Excellent support for surround sound formats • There are many ports for your devices • The setup was very easy • The buttons and knobs feel really nice when you use them • The wifi and bluetooth seem unnecessary, but actually are very convenient and cool. • The remote has different modes for each input. Very nice if you have more remote than you know what to do with
Cons: • It's big and heavy. • There are no ports for a passive subwoofer (although its to be expected with a higher end receiver) It would have been nice to have the option. • It's detailed instructions are on a CD. This may not be a con, but most people like to have physical instructions to read when needed.
Summary: The bomb. I love this receiver, particularly at the price point. Wifi and bluetooth work wonderfully with my phones and tablets (android). It's awesome. I did a ton of research before purchasing this unit. Suffice it to say, I'm really glad that I went with this one. All of the equipment for the theater is in a separate closet, so being able to use my smartphone to operate everything has made the experience unbeatable. No wires, no cabinets, nothing.
Summary: This unit is marvelously engineered! I began as a hifi nut in 1958 with mono Marantz tube equipment and have never been without at least hifi stereo ever since. This 7 channel receiver sets up the speaker balancing all by itself. Its 4 ohm speaker capability lets me use my vintage AR speakers and that was a necessary factor in selecting it.
Summary: New to this brand; but it looks and is has great sound production. Many feature; some of which I am totally lost to do to my lack of knowledge with todays technology. After a short time; rate it 5 stars.
Pros: So many feature; a lot of which are new to me.
Summary: This TX-NR727 3D receiver allows me to truly enjoy my home theater. To spare you the bore of the details of my setup, suffice it to say that I have speakers and a projector which I consider excellent. Your A/V equipment setup will be as good as your weakest link. This receiver is anything but weak, that's why I'm so happy with it. One of the most useful features of the Onkyo receivers is the Audissey speaker set-up.
