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: 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.
Summary: I purchased this product to replace an older Onkyo Pro-Logic unit, it being approximately 17 yrs. old. I researched receivers on line for about a month, went to the local stores, and read as many reviews as possible. I finally squeezed the trigger on the 807 and could not be more pleased. I'm sure that people with a better vocabulary and technical knowledge can pick apart this review. I've seen it many times and do not concern myself with such banter.
Summary: Connected this TX-NR807 receiver to a 5+1 environment. Five speakers and a powered subwoofer. Found the correct connection option in the manual to match my speaker setup. Connected an Oppo blu-ray, and Comcast DVR (latest small size Motorola) via HDMI 1.3a cables. Ethernet connected to a gigabit switch, part of a Comcast broadband network. Over the past 30 days we have updated the firmware without incident twice.
Summary: Upgraded from a twelve-year-old Yamaha with lots of oomph but little in the way of current sound processing and of course no HDMI. Did a massive amount of research in advance, but in the end decided that the NR807 gave me everything I need for now and well into the future. One of the fullest and most immersive soundstages I've ever heard, a comparatively intuitive interface, auto firmware updates and PC audio streaming via its Ethernet port, more setup and configuration...
