Summary: I bought this for my wife and it resides in our bedroom, and it also runs the speakers in the office. This receiver could easily run a system in a much larger room. Power is great everything works great and it is very intuitive to operate.
Summary: I was excited when I bought it a few years ago. I have to admit I didn't know much about HDMI cables but I wish I did. It has no audio via HDMI which in my mind is the second most important thing, picture quality being #1. I was so mad when I finally found out that it didn't provide HDMI sound.
Summary: This receiver is powerful and gives good sound. It can also take 2.1 and 5.1 channel sound and turn it into 7.1 surround sound (great sound). If you do not use HDMI cables then this is a good buy. If, however, you do use HDMI cables then this model is of little value.
Summary: Has all the features required for a 7.1 channel Home Theater System. Although cannot decode formats like DTS-MA, Dolby True HD, 8 channel analog inputs can fill this gap if the BluRay 8 channel analog inputs are connected to it. I like this receiver every much for the price, performance and features
Summary: Having an older Onkyo receiver prior to this, I knew I wanted another Onkyo. This receiver is so easy to hook up with the HDMI hook ups and has an incredible sound! All sound fields are easy to scroll through for each component attached.
Summary: After looking for a reasonably priced HDMI capable home theater receiver and comparing features, I decided to go with Onkyo. The Onkyo TX series receivers I've found to be feature-packed and have great performance and reliability.
Summary: i purchased this receiver to primarily play music, with movies on the rare occasion. this receiver was my first choice because it does 7 channels or 5 with the front main speakers bi-amped. i've never had a bi-amp setup so i was really wanting to hear the sonic benifits claimed was true...
Summary: It amazes me how people don't do their research or read a products description before buying. And then are dumb enough to let us all know that they are unhappy with their dumb mistake. So many complain here that the HDMI is Pass-Thru, yet its stated in the products description.
