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. It has great sound quality and really put my JBL speakers through their paces.
Summary: Bought this receiver after reading some rave reviews from users. I wasn't dissapointed one bit considering I upgraded from Denon and lot of my friends swear that denon makes best receivers. However I now disagree. I am using my Onkyo with the same set of speakers as I was using with denon (Polk CSi A4 center, Polk RTi 8 front and Polk FXi A4 surrounds and Velodyne DLS 10" sub) and the difference is phenomenal!!
Summary: I've owned this receiver for about a year now and haven't had any complaints. I use it primarily for blu-ray and DVD movies. Running a 7.2 set up, it pushes plenty of power through the speakers with tons on reserve. The heat isn't too much of an issue but I have a small receiver fan on top and this keeps it nice and cool. The clicking issue, not one for me.
Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR 807 is a game changer. It is truly an awesome piece of audio equipment. Compared to the old receiver I bought in the 1990s, this thing is light years ahead. Before making the purchase, I agonized for months. I was looking for a receiver which had networking capability (meaning the ability to play music from my PC's hard drive), separate zones to play music in my back yard and the ability to play Windows Media Lossless.
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. not the one to talk to about sound clarity. As far as the common complaints such as firmware problems or networking music from your pc issues, I've had none.
Summary: After extensively researching this receiver, I was a bit skeptical about my purchase considering the number of negative reviews it has, all I can say to those negative reviews in retrospect is; try opening your eyes and actually look at what you have. I will try to address the negative reviews but lets take a look at what was delivered to my door, the TX-NR807 A/V receiver. My Blu ray source is connected with HDMI to receiver, HDMI from receiver to flat panel plasma.
Pros: 11 point 2 capability, Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Fine tune ur audio option, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality, Plenty of audio options, Relay switch
Summary: I love this receiver. It is built to last and has a ton of inputs and speaker options. I can't wait to install my in-wall speakers for the extra high speaker option. I had an older Onkyo home theater receiver which I loved but it didn't have the hdmi inputs. This receiver lasted for years and now my son is using it at his home. I would recommend this receiver even to the serious audiophile and video enthuiasts..
Summary: I purchased this unit through Crutchfield and everything was great. It was an upgrade from a ~10 year old Harmon Kardon AVR35. WOW are you friggin kidding me? The sound is excellent and the Audyssey microphone setup worked great. As soon as we did the Audyssey setup surround sound movies sounded just like they were supposed to. Worthy things to note are the simplistic interface with TV display setup screens and video signal upgrade/merge capabilities.
