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.
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.
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.
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
Summary: Got my receiver last week and I must say I am beyond impressed. This is my second Onkyo receiver and will never be without. Had a Sony receiver in between my two Onkyos and wasn't ever really happy. Plenty of power. WiFi works great. And the remote is easy to program.
Summary: The Onkyo TX-NR828 was one of 2 receiver s that I was looking at. In the end it won out, because it had exactly the features I was looking for, built in Wi-Fi and bluetooth right out of the box. The setup is easy in my opinion and it sounds great.
Pros: Easy connectivity, built-in Wi-Fi, bluetooth, GUI, Price oh and did I mention Sound
Cons: None other than maybe a little heavy for some.
Summary: Best receiver for price. OK..You've read them, good reviews,bad reviews. Most say OMG it's a downgrade from the 818, or it's not as good as the 838. Well let me say, that both statements could be true.
