Summary: Purchased the TX-NR828 to replace my older NR-TX901. Nothing wrong with the 901....new enough to have an ethernet port for playing tunes off my computer, but it's just old enough to be lacking HDMI inputs, and I wanted to be able to switch all my devices through the 828, rather than choosing the...
Pros: Awesome sound
Cons: HDMI and composite video upconversion issues
Summary: Having been a previous owner of old Onkyo's receivers I have become particularly fond to its sound quality and reproduction. I believe Onkyo reproduces depht and quality of sound with sheer clarity that amazes the best audiophile.
Pros: Great sound quality and depth perception. Beautiful musicallity, and price!!!
Cons: HDMi not 2.2! Big and heavy, requires space!! Hope video card does not crash!! I am using a surge protector and line conditioner.
Summary: Good mid-range receiver. Plenty of connections, options, and power. I'm using this with a single room setup - primarily for streaming video and audio services. iOS app is average but usable. The network audio options like spotify work well and are easy to use.
Summary: I haven't had a receiver for over 17 years. So I had the salesman pick me out a system. I knew I would have to cough up some cash to get anything with any performance. I'm still getting used to it, so I can only say from what I know so far.
Pros: Easy to figure out installation if you have experience with audio, I had to call in for some help on some speaker usage, but other wise a breeze(I'm not a audio pro). With some miner tweaks here and there you'll have a nice sounding and not to bad at power receiver. I'm pushing 4- Infinity Primus...
Cons: Cant hardly see the buttons, would be nice if they were back lighted, the directional pad is really hard to use if you have big worn out fingers like me. I'm constantly hitting the wrong thing. I don't think it has enough fan to it. I put a little 10" house fan on it, they say it doesn't need it,...
Set up is pretty straight forward once you pay with it

Summary: did my research to find the right receiver for my needs. this arrived on time and was exactly what I needed. has all the functionality and specs required for my theater. replaced a 13 yr old Integra peice and has been doing the job admirably. Good buy.
