Summary: Bargin price. Easy set up. Sound is okay. Runs very hot. Ample capabilities. However,..........sound drops out about 6 to 7 times per hour for about 3 seconds per event. Shipping this product back just out of fear that it will soon go out permanently. Not to mention the annoyance.
Summary: HDMI out stopped working after 3 weeks. No audio or video will feed to the TV. I missed my window to return, so I had to deal with Onkyo Customer Service; not a good experience. Obviously a lemon, but Onkyo would not exchange.
Onkyo surround is Junk and still in the repair shop and Onkyo doesn't care!! Its 2 months old.

Summary: What a Lemon or Piece of Junk!!!!!!!!!I bought this surround receiver on December 24 and not even two months later some of the TV channels would go way up and down in volume. Also some of the speakers would cut off. It was not the show format as it would change form time to time with the same show.
It's like being at the drive-in without the car or mosquitos or strange bathroom smell or those people next to you making out

Summary: Runs warm. Plays loud enough for the family room. 5.1 is nice, I enjoy it immensely. The passthrough works as well. There is no way to use a digital audio input and an analog output. Then again, this unit didn't really cost all that much, so what do you really expect?
Summary: Satisfied! Good product. The Onkyo UBT-1 Bluetooth USB Adapter works with my unit. Some reviews say, "UBT-1 does not work." I called Onkyo customer support before purchasing the UBT-1. First told it would not work and then after more discussion was placed on hold while a double check was made.
Summary: BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK! For the price you cannot beat this. I read a review someone said the HDMI connects weren't good - everything works perfect for me. I Purchased this for my (finished) basement TV/Gaming room.

Summary: Had this for about a year and it works great except for switching between inputs sometimes has to be done multiple times(to fix) although the input switches and its recieving the signal sometimes the color is off and the screen image for the game or cable doesnt fit correctly if that makes sense?
Summary: Like many others who have been burned trying to use Onkyo receivers for video use, I have found this thing mostly useless. Sound is actually pretty good for most sources. But for video using the HDMI with a Sony Blu-Ray Player (all sources, both disc - DVD & BD, as well as all streaming media) or...

Summary: My dad bought an Onkyo receiver many years ago and was very impressed with the good sound at a reasonable price. I originally bought a 2 channel receiver from Onkyo just for music, but when we got a TV and Blu-Ray player, I realized I needed something more. This one sounds just as fantastic.
Summary: Works flawlessly as a base unit for a system in my barn, which serves as the centerpiece to my "National Display Garden"... and frequent weddings. I'd prefer it had more zone ability (comes with only two, A & B), but have added 4 more with a peripheral device, and this system handles it beautifully.
