Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR 807 is one of a long line of high value receivers from this firm. It has very good, if not best of class power, to drive most Home Theater Sound Systems to impressive levels. A solid performer in this respect. The Video processing features are acceptable though most new Flat Panel TVs will do just as well with their internal circuits so the need for up scaling features in the receiver are debatable for most users.
Summary: Warning! Hostile review by bitter engineer. Where I make direct accusations such as lying and the product being crap; I am expressing my opinion. I don't hate Onkyo, I merely wish they were forced to relocate to the black hole in the center of the milky way. The toxicity and blatant greed of this kind of manufacturer would be less obnoxious from there. Pros: most stuff works as advertised.
Summary: When you buy a receiver with a small embedded computer in it, I guess it may be reasonable for some people to accept weekly crashes, however, it's a bit frustrating that I'm reduced to having to "reboot" my receiver by pulling the power cable out of it about once per week. It loses audio aka no sound... the fix? A "simple" hard reset. Weak Onkyo, weak. It's got updatable firmware and even on the current firmware, no fix in sight.
