A mixed bag

Wayne, Amazon
3 August 2013
  • Summary: Since the time that this came out, Onkyo has come out with several newer generations. In some ways, the features have improved, but in many ways they haven't. You can go to the Onkyo website to compare multiple models to see how the features compare to something like the newer 828 model. For practical purposes, this has the features I need, is far more capable than lesser models of its generation, and lesser models of the current generation.

2 months after the warranty expired it turned into a silent brick

Charles C. Hall "theccrider", Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: 2 months after the 2 year warranty expired the unit started having problems playing audio after changing inputs. The problem worsened. Two months later it would not play audio at all. I called Onkyo support twice but never talked to a person. I left complete and detailed messages. No one has called me. I started looking on the Internet and found lots of other owners having the same problem getting the unit to work and getting Onkyo to respond.

Excellent receiver!!!

  • Summary: I've had this receiver for about 3 months now and I love it. I'm actually writing this to help anyone who's having network error DNS-013. Not sure if you will receive this error with a wired network connection but if you are using an Onkyo wireless adapter and your receiver freezes up and no longer recognizes the wireless adapter or no longer recognizes a flash drive, etc. on your front USB port, try this: In the last 3 months this has happened to me 3 times.

Wonderful receiver, terrible support

Jeremy Stein, Amazon
9 August 2011
  • Summary: Like many others here, I bought a new 809 because my old Onkyo was so good to me. Going from a SR501 to the NR809 is an absurd jump in quality, convenience, sound ... you name it. I love this receiver. And there's no way I'm giving it five stars. Because Onkyo's tech support is horrible. ASUS is embarrassed by Onkyo's support system. Like another reviewer, I called in with a minor problem. Basically, the sound was cutting out on certain channels from my STB.

Mycket bra

  • Summary: Gick från en Pioneer VSX-LX60 till denna. Liknande ljudupplevelse, dock mer kräm i den här och kul med internetradio och firmwareuppdatering över internet. Gedigen konstruktion som väger bly. Den känns relativt sval för att vara en Onkyo, som ju vanligtvis brukar bli så varma att man kan steka ägg på dom. Den kommer inte så bra överens med min Philips-TV via hdmi. Tar lång tid att handskaka med min htpc och xbox360. TV:n klarar inte att synca med ps3 alls via onkyon.
