Summary: I absolutely love this receiver! Onkyo did a great job when they made this unit. So much you can do with it with optimum power. I have this hooked up to Onkyo SKS-HT 540 7.1 130 watt/per speakers. The sound is phenominal, watch a war movie and your in the middle of the battle with the real sounds of the war.
Summary: I am using the Onkyo TX-NR808 in a medium size family room with front, center and surround speakers. I like the bi-amp feature. The picture quality is awesome after I discovered that I needed to change pass through setting to 1080p. Using the home key on the remote to access the audio settings and letting you easily swithch and hear the different sound options is a great feature. I haven't found any cons. I would recommend this product.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I bought this to replace my previous SR701 to increase power (needed for a large room and to drive my Polk RTiA7's) and to incorporate HDMI. WOW! There are no downsides. Plenty of clean power; Ease of handling 3 different zones; Top shelf stock remote. The list goes on. Onkyo is, without a doubt, the leader in the mid-level A/V Receiver market. The quality and options you get for your $'s can't be matched.
Pros: Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
