Summary: Count me among the many others with no sound a few months after the warranty expired. The receiver was excellent until then. I contacted Onkyo support, and they agreed to cover the repair! I was ready to swear off Onkyo forever, but now I'm a happy camper again.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a 7.1 Sony receiver. The Good: This unit is a considerable upgrade from the Sony. The sound quality is excellent making for a night and day difference from the Sony unit. Not that the Sony wasn't a decent home theater receiver, this one is just that much better which accounts for the difference in price.
Summary: When you are looking to buy an AVR at this price point, only Denon can compare. The onkyo edged out the Denons and it is a bit more feature packed for the price. Although Denons have better video quality and handling. The onkyo looks great and sounds great too, good clean and clear power will drive nearly anything you would hook up. Setup was a breeze and tweaking thinks later on is simple as it's all done through the gui.
Summary: Connected to Eosone home theater speakers (901 series). Sounds amazing. Replaced a 10 year old Pioneer reciever. Technology has surely advanced. Purchased originally for the Dynamic sound correction and the network connection to stream music. Dynamic sound processing is nice. No longer searching for the remote every commercial break. Set the volume at one level and it stays. Played the 5th Element using the optical digital input.
Summary: Once you updated to the newest firm ware this receiver works very well. The power and tone are wonderful and the video pass though works well for most applications. My only problem with the unit is that my htpc doesn't pass though at the full size of my screen. The streaming audio and the ability to see network file shares both work very well.
Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR808 is an excellent choice for your audio video needs. Superb video upconversion and superior audio make this a great AV receiver. However, I am at a loss as to why Onkyo would feature pack this receiver and leave out Zone 2 video functionality? This is an important feature for those who would like to feed composite audio video signals to other areas of their home while watching a different program in another room.
Summary: I purchased a new Onkyo TX-NR808 Receiver from Amazon in November 2010. I checked a number of locations and found the best price at Amazon. This receiver is feature-laden and you get a lot of bang for the buck with it. Onkyo has always been a quality company with reasonable prices, and this receiver is no exception. I liked the auto-calibration feature named Audyssey MultEQ, which helps you set up the surround sound for each speaker using a microphone.
Summary: Onkyo TX-NR808 7.2-Channel Network Home Theater Receiver (Black) My goal was to simplify my electronics collection by consolidating a few pieces into one. I didn't want to give up my Adcom GFA-5400 2- channel amp, but I was willing to part with my GFP-715 preamp, as long as I could find a mid line receiver that supported a pre out zone. This Onkyo fit the bill. My love of the Adcom amp is that it neither sounds too bright nor too warm. The amp sounds just right to me.
Summary: I just purchased this receiver (from Amazon who had the best price, BTW!), and I have to say that the unit is really awesome. The long list of features is exhausting, and we haven't begun to explore them all yet. I will update later as we do that. But I wanted to post one thing that people should know about this unit, and Onkyo in general. While Onkyo hardware is technically spectacular and gets great reviews, their product documentation sucks!
Summary: Ich habe mir zum Ersten Mal so eine Anlage gekauft! Angeschlossen habe ich das Lautsprecher System Teufel System 5 THX. Gerade im THX Modus klingt das ganze noch etwas lasch. Nach Reset und Update ist es schon wesentlich besser geworden. Die Erstinstallation ist sehr umfangreich, weil auch mein Sky Programm nicht über den A/V Receiver laufen kann (entschlüsselt nicht schnell genug bei HD Programmen) musste ich eine optisches Kabel legen und dafür einen anderen Eingang...
