Excerpt: Nice entry level receiver. I purchased this to replace an older Onkyo receiver that did not have HDMI connection. The old receiver was several levels pricewise above this one but using my old Onkyo speakers the TX-SR313 out performs my previous one in all aspects. I went from 7.1 to 5.1 surround and this works beautifully.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Good Remote Control, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: Easy to set up, amazing sound quality. Another great Onkyo product. Don't let the watts per channel fool you - this thing rocks. I don't live in a nightclub, 100+ watts is overkill and is a trade off for sound quality.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
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? I'm sure it'll last me for years to come like my Sony from 1994 did until 2014.
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. After re-checking, customer support said, "Yes it does work." I am taking a guess here. The unit I received had a sticker on the box reading BlueTooth ready.
Summary: two of the HDMI outputs are DEAD ! replaced a $ 500 Pioneer receiver that the sound had died on, UE22 code... with another piece of JUNK ! Going Sony next time. The rest of the functions seem to work fine.
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. I have HD DTV and an Xbox plugged into this unit with nice Yamaha and Sony surround speakers etc. Sound quality is GREAT. Full manual comes as a PDF on the CD that is in the box. Also read people complaining about this???

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?I dont know why but so far its the only fault Ive found.It pushes my 5.1 great.
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 Apple TV produces horizontal video glitches on my projected display.
... many years ago and was very impressed with the good sound at a reasonable price

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. I have HDMI inputs for my cable box and blu-ray player, and use the digital coaxial coming from my sound card on my PC (Asus Xonar Essence STX card), and the sound is superb.
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.
