Summary: It may be a moot point by now for this model however, I have enjoyed my Onkyo 807 for around 5 yrs now! After 3 yrs, the HDMI board went south. Onkyo gave me an out of warranty fix, I was out of pocket only the cost of shipping one way. It's been a champ ever since.
Pros: Pre-outs, Rated at 135w per 2ch, Audyssey, multiple listening modes, Ethernet port, plenty of analogue and HDMI connectivity, 7.2 availability, even more features
Summary: I've never put much stock into the unit. It has handled anything I threw at it for years now. The digital switching is great, though sometimes a little slow to handle new input frequencies / sources. OSD is great and works as needed. The effect on my home theater was immediate and welcome.
Summary: I love this system. It's my first home theater project and a follow up review after owning it for just over 6 months now. LG390 bluray is the source and LG50PS30 is the final. I have everything connected with HDMI. With 2 subs and 7 speakers hooked up, I have theater quality at the push of a button.
Pros: Very powerful unit, multiple listening modes, firmware upgradable via Internet, easy to use, feature rich, lots of adjustability, detailed owners manual, plenty of connectivity options.
Cons: At this price range, no need to cry over spilled milk, you're getting more than you bargained for.
Summary: I had read about the "no sound" issue but I ordered one anyway. I received the 807 and proceded to connect and run through the setup. First thing I did was update the firmware which Onkyo makes easy with my wired network connection.
Pros: great sound unmatched features price internet radio DLNA easy firmware update great looks
Summary: Leave the equalizer on and zero out everything else. Keep the THX settings. You can make more adjustments if you want to. Put on a DVD and fasten your seat belt. You will have a ride you won't believe.
Pros: I have been an audiophile for 60 years and in to home theater for 25 years. I have 5 receivers plus separates. This Onkyo brings new life and spirit to movies. I never heard so much power and life in a movie until now. This is a receiver you must have if you love all kinds of movies.
Cons: The first one I got from Newegg, crashed. Onkyo said to send it back to Newegg. It was replaced ASAP. Less than a week. Both receivers have audyssey problems. I gave up using it. You don't need it anyway. It sounds magnificent without it.
Summary: Ok I ordered this receiver about a week ago. I received it very promtly a few days ago. I'm currently just running 2 front speakers DV64s by BIC America and also a center, the dv-62clrs. I will start out by saying I am in no way an audio expert. I think the sound, sounds AWSOME. But I'm def.
Summary: I spent a review defending the negs. Let me tell you what's cool about the 807: What I have is; Input source, LGBD390 via HDMI. Final source, LG50PS30 via HDMI. The speakers are Onkyo SKS-HT870 7.1 130w with the Energy ESW-8SG sub, 200w. That's 490watts of total sub-woofer!
Pros: Very powerful. Biscuit tin?, I think it's very solid. 11.2 surround sound?, FANTASTIC!! Unit dimmer switch. 135watts per channel. Audyssey MultEQ takes all the work out of setting up the sound.
Cons: Unable to reverse the direction of the listening mode menu.
Summary: For the past 9 years newegg has delivered great products, support, fast shipping, and great prices.
Pros: Had internet radio up as fast as I could plug in the cable. My house is wired with cat5 from a media box in the garage (wired router) with a wireless router above the entertainment area and the receiver had no issues syncing up through both routers. All menu's are straight forward and easy to nav...
Summary: Aside from flat panel T.V.s (DVD and Blu-ray players), this was my first big electronic purchase. To make sure I get the most for my money, I do TONS of research. This site gave me quite an insight, thank you for the all the positive reviews, it definitely helps others.
Pros: Multible listening modes. Remote is easy to use. Lots of tweak-ability of listening modes. More features than you can shake a stick at. Unit is heavy and solid. Once you've studied the manual, operation is easy and fun.
Summary: I have always wanted a reciever that had enough inputs, and that allows you to label them. This Reciever does everything I want and in addition supplies incredible audio performance! Highs are crisp and clean, mids are clear not muffled, and Lows are deep yet do not lack definition.
Pros: Everything! Finally a reciever with enough inputs! One HDMI Cable to the TV, everything else to the reciever, decodes audio from HDMI, Can hook up my PS3, 360, WII, HTPC, Laptop, and Cable Box! On Screen Interface is easy to understand, navigate, and configure.
