Don't buy Onkyo

Michael D. Jones, Amazon
6 March 2009
  • Summary: I was disappointed that there was no up converting the inputs to hdmi output, but that was my fault for not doing a better job reviewing the product. I was happy about the features like the zone 2 which I promptly hooked up to my outdoor speakers on my patio.

Disappointing

Chris White, Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: The hdmi video output does not work. The Zone 2 out does not work. I've tried both a direct speaker connection and the output to secondary amp connection - neither work. I would not recommend this unit. Onkyo's solution is to take the unit to the nearest service center - 700 miles away.

BE CAREFUL

  • Summary: I bought this to hook up surround to my tv. This model has HDMI video only, so will not play sound from a HDMI source. I returned product and bought something else. Was very heavy well built unit, would be great for a stero setup, but is not for your new tv setup!

HDMI--what's the point?

Lisa M. Guess, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this HDMI receiver thinking it was a great deal. When I started hooking it up, I realized it wasn't such a great deal!! This receiver DOES NOT extract the audio from the HDMI cables. All info is sent to the TV.
