Summary: I've had this for a little over 2 years and have had intermittient issues with no sound output. In the past, cycling power by removing the plug has temporarily corrected it but that is no longer the case. There is a KNOWN issue with the HDMI board failing on these receivers and all my symptoms match those exactly. [...] I've always been an Onkyo fan but having a $900 receiver with this kind of reliablity is forcing me to change brands.
Summary: This unit has been problematic since I purchased it. And last week, just before my Super Bowl party, the unit decided it would fail; all of the THX, DTS, NeoCinema and other advanced signal processing just quit working on five speakers in my 7.1 speaker configuration of my home theater. The only speakers that worked were my woofer and my left front channel. I immediately thought it might be a problem with my DVR so I tested the amp with my blu-ray and dvd players.
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.
Summary: I previously had been using an old Yamaha RXV-1000 in a 5.1 system. It was puchased 7 or 8 years ago for about $1000. I recently purchased the TX NR807. The Onkyo's Faroudja Hudson-Edge video processor greatly enhances the video coming out of my Comcast Motorola DCX-3400 dvr when the receiver setting is set to 1080p. With the Onkyo, the video on my new Sony 52-inch is fabulous- much better than if I obtain video just from TV to DVR-cable box.
Summary: I bought this receiver as the core of an AV system. I had a speaker problem that I could not resolve from the graphical user interface, so I followed the instructions in the trouble shooting guide - reset to factory defaults! After resetting to factory defaults, the Audyssey equilazation, network functions, remote control setup, and who knows what other functions were no longer available. I called tech support, and they told me to send in the receiver for repair.
Summary: Video processing is excellent, but audio quality is terrible. At low volume levels, there is distortion and hiss as loud as the music. Onkyo Customer Support said "do a master reset" which did no good. I have not heard from them since. This unit sounds nowhere near as good as the Sony I am replacing it with.
Summary: Kommer myrornas krig ibland vilket inte går att få bort utan att gå fram och stänga av den med huvudströmbrytaren. Jag har haft den inne på service men dom hittar inga fel, mjukvaran är också uppdaterade i den till den senaste även där utan framsteg.
