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: 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.
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.
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: 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.
