Summary: Works well, though there are a few bugs I have noticed. The Audessy XT setup is great for getting the best sound with minimal effort. It also has to option to run your main left and right in a bridged mode to pump more watts to each.
Super happy with this product. Great quality, amazing sound and power.

Summary: I bought this receiver to replace and older Onkyo system. I was looking for a system with networking capability and HDMI connectivity. I love being able to listen Slacker and Pandora at the touch of a button and this is the first system that has provided enough inputs to connect all of my game...
Summary: Works great and the administration is very easy. The only complain that I'll have is related with the peripherials to manage, for example, I have a WD TV Live, and I can't manage it form the Onkyo remote.
Summary: The receiver is great in every way but one. And that one is on zone 2 or 3 you cannot play digital format on them. Sure you can use hdmi for video but it will not pass audio nor will will it pass digital audio via spdif or spdif/optical. Fix that and you would get 5 stars.
Summary: So far this receiver seems to work great so far. There have been a few quirks that are annoying but nothing serious. The first thing is when I use the pc hdmi hook up, the bass doesn't seem to work off it which sucks because I listen to my music off my computer so I tried it on a different hdmi...
Summary: The best thing about this receiver is the remote options. The physical remote that comes with the device will learn any other remote. You can put the remote in learning mode and tell it what button you want to program, then point another remote at it.
Summary: Just got this installed. Replaced a lower-end unit. I was surprised how much better this one sounds. I was planning on upgrading my speakers next, but it sounded quite good with the modest ($300/pr) speakers I have now.
Excellent receiver best bang for the buck. You can do 9.2 with external amp clearly in manual

Summary: This receiver is the best bang for the buck in its price range . As a prior owner of denon, Onkyo, and Sony flagship receivers this unit is a culmination of them all. I am not interested in internet playback so that is not important to me ,only complaint I have is you do not have a discreet power...
