Excerpt: I have the receiver hooked up to my computer via the HDMI port on my ASUS GTX660 TI-DC2O-2GD5 GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card. The speakers being used are my Klipsch 5.1 surround sound speakers. (The amp on the Klipsch Pro Media 5.1 apparently had a power surge and doesn't work anymore.) So I hooked the speakers directly to the Onkyo TX-SR313.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Great bang for the buck! Get a nice set of Bose AM speakers to match it!

Summary: I got one of these on eBay, because it was not working, and the price was "dirt" cheap! Got it fixed, for less than $70.00! All told, I now have a "Newly Recondition" TX-SR313, for less than $90.00! Shipping not included! I got it home, set it up, and was instantly pleased with it! I have a set (3) of KLH Model-09, cubes, matched with a Bose Accustimass 3 speaker system, (2 single cubes, with a floor bass module).
This is the go to receiver in this price range: Perfect

Summary: So far this receiver has done literally everything I've wanted it to and more. If you're looking for something to hook a surround sound system up to a projector, then buy it. If you want to hook your computer up to it so that your computer is working out of a surround sound system, then buy it. If you want to put surround sound on literally anything, then buy it. I have some ridiculously demanding speakers hooked up to this thing and it just blows my house up with glory.
Summary: I've always had good luck with Onkyo products and this receiver did not disappoint. Easy hookup. I'm using quality cables (very important; to me anyway) I have this in my man cave (which is the size of a bedroom) with a 5.1 Surround Sound setup with subwoofer. This puppy really delivers. For a budget receiver this is a no brainier. Lots of different choices. This really makes a huge difference with my 32" LCD TV. I have everything hooked up to it.
Summary: One thing I like and don't like. A popup comes on the screen when you change the volume so you can see what it is set at. My last receiver I had to try and see the little led on the receiver to see this from 20 ft, so this is convenient. However, sometime it covers up critical info like foreign language captions and the popup stays up too long.
Summary: First off, I am not an audio guru. I just wanted surround sound with my big screen and I don't have powerful speakers as I am using the ceiling speakers, so I don't need tons of power. The product came very well packaged, got it in a timely fashion, it was in perfect condition and I found it was easy to set up and to operate. What a big difference in sound from the on board TV speakers! Since it was on sale, I think it was a very good bang for the bucks.
Excerpt: Great amplifier sound.I am a older audiophile.Would have got 5 stars,except,where onkyo had to cut corners on it's budject set,they did it on FM.This FM is O.K.e but falls short in sound,from other brands,such as Sony.I would recomend this onkyo for dvd-bluray use .Sound can be astonishing.
Summary: Great so far and exceeded my expectations. Doesnt have YPAO but easy enough to setup without it. Doesnt seems to have passive HDMI sensing so i must turn off the receiver manually when finished. Other than that great little receiver. My yamaha broke so i decided to get this as i didnt want to shell out alot cash. very comparable to the mid range yamaha units.
