Summary: I looked high and low for a component audio receiver and finally found one! The only thing I don't like is that this gets a little hot, even at low volume. Even so, for the price I paid, I'm very satisfied. I can play my DVD-Audio and SACD's without having any problems, which is fine with me.
Summary: Quite a bit of performance and many different user-selectable options with this receiver. I am very happy with my purchase. My (video) family / entertainment room is about 20' square, and has a 7.1 speaker setup.
Summary: This unit has all the things you need and none of the extra bs many of the others cram in. The sound quality is as good as your going to get in this price range. The only extra I wish this had was a EQ. Worth every penny!
Summary: After going through 2 Denon 160"X" receivers that each failed after a couple years of moderate use, I decided to try Onkyo. This is put together very well and sounds great through by Bose Acoustimass 9 set up. The remote is so much better than Denon.
Summary: This is a nice receiver. The sound is good. Setup was easy. The remote is pretty nice. Makes my lousy cheap speakers sound more expensive. I'm looking forward to upgrading speakers to make this receiver really sing.
