works well..until it doesn't

Hoyt H., Newegg
9 August 2012
  • Pros: Sounds great, hdmi switching,
  • Cons: stopped working in 8 months. Now I have to rewire everything back to the old reliable Sony and rewire again when unit is returned from repair. HDMI board prone to failure per service center. Next time it will be Denon or Sony.

Superb product...for awhile

David M., Newegg

  • Summary: When it works, this receiver is better than my old Kenwood and current Denon AVR-1912. The Denon is much more consistent though. Research the Onkyo issues and buy if you are willing to accept the possible issues on your unit. Would definitely recommend an extended service plan.
  • Pros: Very difficult to find a more capable receiver for the money. Onkyo definitely packs their receivers with a wide variety of listening modes/ inputs. Very powerful 7.2 amp with a multitude of speaker wiring options (impedance/bi-amp/ multizone/ etc.)
  • Cons: After 11 months of perfect performance, the receiver "locked up"-- no response to remote or front panel buttons. Queried Onkyo customer service and received inconsistent information. Eventually Onkyo paid to have the receiver shipped to an authorize repair facility. Took three weeks to receive th...

Works...Till it dies...

Skawonk, Amazon
4 January 2012
  • Summary: Bought it. Hooked it up. Loved it. That's how these things should work. It is pushing a 5.1 line of W-Series Klipsch and an Energy M8 sub. Super system in all ways, movie watching is a dream on the Epson 8350 projector.

High end features, low end quality!

Brent, Amazon

  • Summary: Head this warring, it may look like a good deal, just be prepared for multiple tries to get a unit that works. I bought this product during the "Cyber Monday" sales for a good price. Unfortunately the product I received was defective.

Disapointed

Brent H., Newegg
1 December 2011
  • Summary: New Egg's RMA for a defective product that was shipped with free shipping requires you to pay to send it back. This is rubbing salt in the wound. Not only did NewEgg (through no direct fault of their own) send a defective product, they make the customer pay to send it back.
  • Pros: Great Price for the holidays. Has every connection I needed including PC and s-video (my PS2 is happy once more). 4K video support/upscaling for under $750 is just flat out awesome. Holds down just about any warped peace of wood. This thing is heavy and rock solid! For the speakers channels that ...
  • Cons: The unit I received had a faulty center channel. It astounds me that this unit could leave the factory without being tested. I have read a few different accounts of a similar failure with this model, but I had hoped these were just early defects that would be corrected quickly, apparently hope do...

Warning before you buy!

Joel M., Newegg
20 October 2011
  • Summary: The receiver always took a while to properly handshake with my HD projector. Then one day a couple weeks into owning the receiver, I turned it on to find the HDMI wasn't even recognized. Despite unplugging for an hour as well as a factory reset the unit stated "no input" from any of the HDMI inputs.
  • Pros: power output customizing features network features
  • Cons: quality control

Technisch toll aber schreckliche Bedienung

Maxel, Amazon
1 February 2012
  • Summary: Tolles Bild, toller Klang, viele Anschlussmöglichkeiten - aber wehe, man will das alles umsetzen. Die Bedienerführung ist großer Murks, keine kosenquente Belgung der Fernbedienung, mangelhaftes Feedback über das Display.

Der Videosektor ist enttäuschend

D. Mark "MuseFan", Amazon
18 November 2011
  • Summary: Nach dem ich sehr viele Tests gesichtet hatte und fast immer nur positives lesen konnte. Habe mich entschieden und mir diesen Boliden bestellt. Dabei ging es mir in erster Linie um den Videosektor. Auf diese beziehe mich auch fast ausschließlich in dieser Kritik.
