So FAR Thumbs up

  • Pros: Nice for an update from my old separate 5.1
  • 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.

Good Reciever

  • 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. I also like that you can program the volume it sets itself to when you power it up. This is an excellent feature if you forget to turn it down before turning off the unit.

Nothing beats it for the price

  • Summary: Audyssey XT-32 Ability to have Heights + Wides with an extra AMP, 3D pass-through. Use HDMI 2 Sub out for the cleanest pass-through signal as that output has no video processing on it. There can be issues with Deep Color on this receiver, most sources have Deep Color, like PS3, so you can turn it off on the receiver. Or just use HDMI 2 Sub out.

  • 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 consoles, my blueray player, my CD changer, my laptop, my MP3 player....and I still have inputs I have yet to use. The sound quality is amazing and setup was very easy.

  • 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.

Onkyo txnr818

  • 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.

Works great so far

  • 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 setting (tv/cd) and it works great on that. Not sure if it's a problem with my receiver or just how it's made, but that was one annoyance.

Great sound, love the app, zone2/3 not so hot

  • 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. I'm no audiophile, but I wanted to step up to the next wrung and decided to start with this unit from Onkyo. Very hard to find just the right knee in the curve, so I went with this one when the priced dropped $200 just before Xmas.

  • Summary: Onkyo track record a previous unit died after about 2 years and hard to get worked on which is why I bought this unit to replace.
  • Pros: Bi-Amp
  • Cons: Shortage of legacy connections, but if you have modern equipment who cares.
