Summary: Great value for its price. It does everything I need it to do. I use my PS3, U-verse, karaoke machine, PC, CD player, VCR, etc... One caveat is sometimes the video doesn't come up initially. You have to switch to a different input then switch back at times.
Summary: This has gotten everyday use for over 2 years, still going strong. I use it for the 4 HDMI inputs, headphone jack in front, and 2 sony speakers in front. IMHO that's all you need, and it has more features on top of that.
Summary: This was my 1st ONKYO brand. In the warranty period I had numerous failures with HDMI issues but each time was walked through ways to attempt fixes. Had TERRIBLE luck with customer service but LOVED that they were USA based and spoke perfect English (SHOCK!).
Summary: After a year, the HDMI out started working intermittently; I took it to an authorized service center (2 year warranty on the unit) and they told me everything works find. Took it back home and, good enough, the HDMI out was still making troubles. I gave up and ordered an Yamaha 5.1 A/V receiver.
Summary: I'm a huge techie, but I just recently entered the world of surround sound. The reason being cost and space. Having moved in to a bigger apartment, i decided to go from 2.1 speakers to a 5.1 set-up. The first thing i looked for was a good, but cheap receiver.
Summary: Zone B does not work with digital input. We can only listen to the radio tuner on our 'patio zone'. I think they over engineered it by making the zones discreet. If I want to crank the tunes outside, I am used to just pressint the B button.
Summary: I have had my Onkyo receiver for about 8 monoths and am pretty happy with it. Here are some details if you are looking to purchase, without getting into all the technical specs that you can already find on the sales page: PROS: *3 HDMI inputs.
Summary: I wanted some nice basic surround sound using HDMI. With this receiver you CAN send your HDMI into the unit and play the sound out the receiver while the video continues to the TV. Perfect. I have NO issues with any humming or buzzing or HDMI problems.
Summary: I just hooked this up to a set or Energy RC Micro speakers and I am amazed. Of course, the speakers are not the best money can buy but they are very nice and fill our family room with precise sound, not just noise.
