Summary: My trusty old stereo receiver was providing my surround sound in my Man Cave through the traditional red and white AV cables. However, when my wife presented me with and xbox 360 Christmas present, I found my self unable to enjoy the game through my surround sound system. The Onkyo fits the bill perfectly. It was easy to connect even with my technical shortcomings. It is so convenient to select GAME, CABLE/SAT or BD/DVD as all the components are now connected via HDMI.
Summary: For price, quality, performance this is an excellent receiver. It was easy to set up and other than all those wires having to be reinstalled and/or moved I got it done. Two things I didn't know in advance...there's no switched or unswitched outlets on the receiver. That makes it impossible to turn the receiver and cable box on at the same time. Also the remote is not intuitive and I still find it difficult to figure out.
Summary: I bought this receiver because I replaced a TV with speaker terminals for my speakers with a TV lacking speaker outputs. One thing that led me to the Onkyo was its audio output jacks, as I have wireless headphones for late-night listening while my wife is sleeping, which I needed to connect to the receiver.
Pros: Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Bought this to replace a 12+ year old Yamaha receiver that finally packed it in. Sound is great - once you have it set up. I had some difficulty getting my audio/video source and the receiver to agree on everything. At this point I cannot reliably use the HDMI connectivity for audio and video - the receiver appears unable to handle a 1920x1080 stream reliably. 1280x720, no problem.
Summary: Not a lot of power, but didn't need a lot. Seems like a good receiver and I am happy so far. Easy to set up and use. Powers my Polk audio rm7's, polk center and 2 velodyne impact mini's (powered subs) just fine.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Nur zu empfehlen! Habe das Teil gebraucht bei Ebay ersteigert für 73Euro:-) Bin total zufrieden mit dem Gerät. Ich betreibe den Receiver mit einem Tangent 5.0 Boxen-Set. Für mich ist der Bass hier schon völlig ausreichend da mein Wohnzimmer etwas kleiner ist. Einen Subwoofer schließe ich vielleicht doch noch an:-) Sound lässt sich sehr gut an die entsprechenden Bedürfnisse anpassen!
Summary: das gerät habe ich jetzt zwei jahre in betrieb. ausstattung und anschlüsse sind überduchschnittlich. einziges manko ist, daß das gerät immer im standby modus ist und keinen extra netzschalter besitzt.
