Lasted 4 years, now deceased

Moraine Lake "an explorer of mindscapes", Amazon
18 October 2013
  • Summary: This is a very belated review on a product that I replaced yesterday. The replacement is NOT an Onkyo. I went the Denon route, another 7.2 channel receiver very similar to this one. I tested the Onkyo several time to confirm that it is in fact dead and is going to the trash. Seems like the amplifiers are burned out, probably due to the excess heat, which I noticed right away and concerned me a bit and I took precautions not to allow it to get too hot.

Horrible Quality

R. Hermann, Amazon
1 September 2011
  • Summary: After a year or so my tx-nr807 spontaneously lost all sound output. From reading on other forums, this is a relatively common problem and is extremely expensive to fix out of warranty. Several years out now and I just received the unit back after having the replacement HDMI board replaced. Onkyo replaced the board for free, just cost me $30 and hassle to ship it to the repair center. Turn-around was fast and they updated the firmware too.

Network feature not as smooth as hoped.

R. Reed, Amazon
2 February 2010
  • Summary: The features I found most beneficial/annoying given my perceived needs and use for this receiver: (+) Pros - 135W per channel (on paper) - under $700 (Amazon Warehouse Deals) - network capabilities - firmware update via ethernet - THX Select 2 certified - Burr Brown DAC - Audyssey DSX / PLIIz processing (future proof) - Audyssey setup is a breeze - nice GUI - macro functions on remote (-) Cons - sluggish network connection and lousy interface makes feature more of a...

Honest

Lee the Builder "rarely fooled twice", Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: The idea is to dl the unwashed facts. I am not an audiophile. I can and do build my own computers as well as just about anything with wheels and this is the 4th AVR I have owned. This machine replaces a dead 6 year old Onkyo. It is a drop in into my 6.1 living room setup although it did not just "drop in". The good: Connectivity, the global kind- .

Basic functionality is great. Falls short on some advanced settings.

John "John", Amazon
27 January 2010
  • Summary: I'm not a real audiophile, but I've got a fairly decent ear. I have this hooked up to a set of Klipsch Reference speakers and the sound quality is great. That is, to me, the most important thing here. The remote has some activity functions like "watch tv" that mostly work well and make life easy. The above comments make up 70% of my opinion on this thing so far. Now for the not so great stuff... The interface and menus are notably ugly.

Don't reset to factory settings! If you do, you now own a TX-NR801!

Haris G. Bruch, Amazon
19 December 2009
  • Summary: I bought this AV receiver and had some problems with speaker output. I finally ended up resetting to factory defaults via reccomendation of Onkyo. When I did that, I ended up with a TX-NR801. All of the functions of the 807 were gone. auto equalization, "NET", and remote setup were all gone. I now have to send the reciever back to have it repaired, meanwhile my entire system is down. Onkyo couldn't provide any help without sending it back.

Leider mit Schwächen....

lpz3sn "Lpz3sn", Amazon
1 June 2011
  • Summary: Einige Schwächen die man vorher wissen sollte: * Kein durchgängiges Bedienkonzept. - Manche Eingänge verfügen über OnScreen-Ausgabe, andere nicht. - Das UP-DT1 zum Bespiel, kann nicht am Gerät bedient werden (nur über die FB). Eine bildfüllende Benutzerführung gibt es nicht (Die Displayanzeige wird nur als Overlay geklont).

Kraftwerk mit leichten Schwächen

Leines, Amazon
30 July 2010
  • Summary: Über die stärken brauche ich nichts mehr schreiben, denn der Receiver tut das was von Ihm angegeben wurde, und dies aus meiner Sicht perfekt. Daher wären 5 Sterne fällig. Aber nun von Anfang an: Eigentlich wollte ich einen der kleineren Brüder kaufen, aber die Netzwerktechnik hat mich zum Kauf des TX NR807 bewogen. Zudem bekam ich ein sehr gutes Angebot (II Wahl) daher kann ich mit dem Kauf gut leben. Dennoch möchte ich auf ein paar schwächen aufmerksam machen.

Eigentlich nicht schlecht...

H. Weber, Amazon
29 November 2009
  • Summary: Klasse Gerät. Leider ist der Standby-Verbrauch zum durchleiten des HDMI-Signals mit etwa 50Watt entschieden zu hoch. Ich verwende einen externen HDMI-Splitter. Der schafft das gleiche mit etwa 1 Watt Leistung. Wenn es in dieser Preisklasse etwas Vergleichbares gäbe (Internetradio), wäre der Standby-Verbrauch das KO-Kriterium.
