Summary: I bought this for my newly finished detached garage where I store my fantastic 74 Corvette roadster. Makes a great addition to where I spend my time fussing with this toy. Looks good sounds great with the Polk speakers and Onkyo sub. All I need now is a flat screen and I may spend the summer here.
Summary: This is a low end receiver not a lot of bells and whistles, the sound quality is EXCELLANT it has all the basic features is easy to use (no menu searching) . If you want a basic unit with just a few things hooked up it's great , has fiber optic input (dolby digital) I had to assign the optical input (no sound unless so) it took a second . It has no A/C plugs on the back no HDMI plugs (basic 5 ch).
Summary: This receiver is an excellent buy if you are looking to drive most speakers under 100 watts. Easy to configure and sounds good with little tweaking. Great for the armature listener. I was runing my Bose speakers off these and it sounded superb. Now I am using B&W DM302s on them and it's great! For the price, there really is not much to compare or complain about.
Summary: I purchased this amp for my tv in the living room. I don't have surround sound in that room so I was looking for an amp that had very good stereo and the potential for surrond sound if I so desire in the futre. The amp is a good fit for that. The clarity of sound and ease of use are perfect for my wife and family to use. My media room also has an ONKYO amp but is a much higher powered system since that one is used for surround sound.
Summary: I got this unit just a few days ago and I love it. I bought this to replace brand name pre-amp and amplifier separates, so I was wondering if this would compare to them in sound quality. It surely does compare to them. I'm very impressed with this Onkyo unit. I had an Onkyo AM/FM tuner once which I liked, but this is my first Onkyo receiver. The sound quality of this thing is super.
Summary: This was my first AV receiver and I was intimidated at first by the huge tangle of wires leading from my speakers to this box, but the manual was clear, easy to follow, and I had everything hooked up and working in a couple hours. The speaker set up was easy to work through and manipulate, and the sound is very impressive. It also automatically determines what kind of sound is coming in (stereo, Dolby Digital, DTS, etc) and adjusts accordingly.
