  • Summary: This receiver has a solid sound and, paired with decent speakers, sounds awesome. I have it in my living room and it mainly serves to power my video setup so that my family can enjoy TV, DVDs, etc. Zone 2 is set up to provide audio to speakers in other parts of the house. In general this works fine. - Occasionally, the left channel goes out on Zone 2.
  • Pros: Power, sound quality
  • Cons: Net tunes, On-screen programming, flaky Zone 2, memory loss

Onkyo 801NR

  • Summary: Bought this new back in 06 for 800+ dollars and worth every dollar. I see they are going for under 200 (used) which is a steal. This beast has high watts and more important, amps to drive high imp speakers. I have thought about upgrading to a newer AVR but the only thing I would gain would be convenience of a modern interface when using OSD for setup and such. The power the 801 puts out is significant. Again for under 200 bucks will be a major upgrade!

  • Summary: so far so good. Very complex unit, has so many options. Lots and lots of power. Love the universal remote. have not had a chance to use the net tune but can't wait. This receiver is way more than needed for the average home theater. If you want power, great sound, tons of options, oh and power this is the one for you.

Excellent Receiver

  • Summary: an excellent receiver. Quality construction, excellent sound. The Net-Tune features work well with a minimum of setup fuss. The unit is probably a little pricier per feature than some other units, but the trade-off in sound quality and ease-of-use is worth it. Highly recommended...

Excellent Receiver

  • Summary: I run the Onkyo with: Samsung DVD-HD931 DVD player Samsung HPN4239 Plasma AudioSource Amp1 Amplifier Sony CD changer The Amplifier was necessary to drive my passive subwoofer. Buy an active woofer if you don't own an amp. The NetTune system works great. You need a Windows PC on your network to use this feature. Sound quality is great. Video quality through witched components also very good.
