  • Summary: I replaced my 6 year old Denon that failed on me with this receiver. I really like this receiver! The sound quality out of the same speakers is much better and I can definetly tell the difference. The wifi and bluetooth features are amazing.

HDMI problems

bts, Crutchfield
27 April 2015
  • Summary: Worked great, for about 4 months, great sound, etc. Started having audio dropouts at about 4 months after purchase. Tried the "turn off deep color fix", and it'll work for a while, but this unit will need to be serviced.
  • Pros: Great sound, picture, and user interface.
  • Cons: Needs service at 4 months of use. When it drops out, it is totally worthless.

Onkyo is tough to beat

Ryan W, Crutchfield
23 April 2015
  • Summary: When it comes to home amplifiers under $1000 the Onkyo TX-NR828 is truly hard to beat. From the sleek styling to the copious amounts of inputs, to the powerful 130w per channel, my home theater experience has never sounded so good.
  • Pros: Plenty of inputs, Bluetooth connectivity, powerful per channel output.
  • Cons: I can't think of any at the moment. I suppose you could find something but at this price I don't think so.

Onkyo AV RECEIVER TX-NR828

DanE, Crutchfield
19 April 2015
  • Summary: Excellent AVR. 8 HDMI outlets is awesome and more than any other brand. On-screen controls are very convenient.
  • Pros: 8 HSMI connections. Powerful. Versatile with many listening configurations available. User can connect many devices.
  • Cons: It was a little hard to connect devices correctly for me. It has been a long time since I have attempted this. But I finally got it right. It was all operator error.

WOW !!!

MrFitz, Crutchfield
17 April 2015
  • Summary: I never write review so here it goes... I have never been so impressed as I am with the ONKYO 828. Crisp clean sound with plenty of power. I had a Sony THX receiver for the past 9 years that I thought was ineradicable but this ONKYO kicked it's butt.
  • Pros: Fast Delivery, The best sound I have heard in a home receiver.
  • Cons: NONE...

Impressive!

NBrown, Crutchfield
14 April 2015
  • Summary: Impressive appearance. Impressive performance! Easy to setup! Love the ability to Manually set up the speaker configuration on screen! I have the 5-Speaker Surround Sound set-up with 2 tall, front, floor-standing Definitive BP 2000 tower speaker configurations, with center channel and surround...
  • Pros: Impressive appearance. Impressive performance! Easy to setup!
  • Cons: My only wishes would be that the Aux Input would have been accessible without having to open the flip-down door on the front panel, or at least had its own separate flip-down door. And, it would be nice if the tiny switch labels were illuminated.

There's an ok in onkyo but not a fantastic.

ClLy, Amazon
10 April 2015
  • Summary: Was excited at first because I kept hearing good things BUT I'm now thinking I should have kept with a THX Pioneer receiver. Apparently the first issue I came across was the problem with the remote not working, yep, apparently it happens to most people but luckily there is a wifi app to control it...

BEST VALUE

Bill, Crutchfield
7 April 2015
  • Summary: I was worried that spending less than $600 would I would get a sub par receiver. IF you have a similar concern DONT. This receiver execeeds all of my expectations and pushes my Polk Audio ATi 9s to their limit. I love the ease of use and the multitude of connection options.
  • Pros: Power, Ease of use, Customer Support, Blue Tooth, WiFi
  • Cons: NOTHING AT ALL
