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.
Cons: the left side of the tuner is low. Amp section is fine, power supply has to be grounded, mine has lf hum if connected to PC and TV and SUB.. They're all on the same powerstrip, and still has annoying hum. Definately needs a grounded plug and true PS ground
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: Sounded GREAATTT when it worked but it just didn't work for long. Maybe try a different company if I were you.
Pros: Sounds amazing, great HDMI pass-through video quality
Cons: It broke within a year. Not sure what's wrong, but it only stays on for 1 - 5 minutes before it turns off again. Only plays through 1 channel and at a very low volume. Trying to find a repair center to see if this is worth salvaging...really disappointed as a first time buyer of Onkyo
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.
