Cons: Had no problems with the receiver up until about 3 weeks ago. Receiver shuts off and will not power back on. Usually takes a couple of hours to reset itself and power back on. I have owned onkyo receivers for 18 years now and still have the tx-sv727 and the tx-sr804 along with the tx-hcr360.All h...
Cons: Main issue I have come across has to do with down conversion and outsourcing to tertiary receivers. No optical out, and zones 2 and 3 only output line OR powered if there is an analog audio connection on that input. You can sort of trick it by jumpering the front pre-outs into another source, but...
Pros: Nice for an update from my old separate 5.1 The receiver is DNLA and HDMI friendly. Sound is good if not great (depends on complete system and what you like.) The up-scaling and other features I am still learning that this thing carries is amazing.
Cons: 280 plus page instructions.. heck I am old school engineer and at the point I want to just press one button. But once you get this thing set up it is great.
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.
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: Receiver arrived with 8 inch hole in side of box plus other damage to the box. The side of the receiver was completely visible. My luck was holding...no damage and the receiver seems fine to boot.
Pros: Great Sounding, quality built, feature galore, Value for the money. Fantastic deal from Newegg for $560 brand new! 30% off $799 (they sold in one day)
Cons: GUI with too small a writing, not enough info stream music, "stripped down" version of Audyssey Multeq XT32. Denon has full version with more options
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...
