Summary: my third onkyo receiver since 2010. bought less than a month ago and just returned it with similar HDMI board audio loss as my previous purchases. to onkyo's credit they did repair my previous receivers and I do like all the features and they sound great when working.
Summary: I have 2 of these and also a TX-NR828, I love them,well the TX-NR929 a little more. My setup: Onkyo TX-NR929 Emotiva XPA-2 External amp Jamo D-450 Fronts Jamo D-430 Surrounds Jamo D-430 Wides Jamo D4 Center Jamo D4 Sub Onkyo C-7000R cd player Sony DVD BluRay Player Sony 50" Bravia LCD XBR First of all I'd like to add that ONKYO Remotes and Receivers are the best!
Summary: One of the great things about modern AVRs is that they can be upgraded after purchase. If you check out the Onkyo support website (http://www.intl.onkyo.com/support/firmware/tx-nr929.html) you can see that the company has issued four firmware fixes for the 929! Not bad, eh? Fixes to a product after you purchase it. How satisfying. Did you know that In June 2014, Onkyo and Dolby announced a new surround sound format called Dolby Atmos?
Lots of power, lacking latest 4K features, read below about powered Zone 2/3 caveats

Summary: I purchased this to power my whole house audio system - as it turns out I ended up using it to power my home theater. This is a monster of a receiver with a ton of power. It has some great features, but it is already outdated, but not terribly. Why Onkyo hasn't released the TX-NR939, I don't know. Why it's outdated, and does it make a difference? Primarily, this receiver is outdated because it doesn't support HDMI 2.0, which provides 4K video at up to 60Hz.
Summary: Everything is great except the net music feature.When playing Sirius radio the music will cut out for 5-10 seconds 3 times an hour. Very frustrating when having a party. This appears to be a known issue with this receiver due to buffering. Would love a fix for this issue.
Summary: The display on my TX-SR805 went out (I have since found a possible fix and will attempt later). It is a great AVR and I had no reason to upgrade at this time. I decided to step up to the 929 and I am glad I did. The wireless capability works perfect. I actually found my favorite old radio station that moved from DC to Baltimore several years ago and now I can listen to it on the internet. Now to the most important part... the sound. IT IS WONDERFUL!
