Great sound and features

J. Holmes, Amazon

  • Summary: I replaced an older Yamaha (non HDMI/HD) receiver with this one. The Onkyo was easy to set up although it took a while to figure out how to set all the options I needed. Sounds great. My biggest complaint is with the manual and Onkyo support. Since I am new to HDMI devices I had alot of trouble in making all my components work since my old DVD player and new Onkyo iPod dock are not HDMI.

A good receiver but with a few quirks

  • Summary: I bought this receiver to replace my Sony 5.1 receiver, primarily because I wanted a dual room/dual source receiver but it needed to fit into a tight space, less than 6.25" high, so my selection was already limited. It's a good receiver, don't get me wrong, but I'm not super-impressed. For starters, they don't really tell you that when you are using the dual room/source feature, the primary listening location cannot play 5.1 surround sound.

Zone 2 Feature Disappoints

  • Summary: Bought this to power home theater as well as zone 2 whole house audio speakers. Was disappointed that zone 2 won't accept digital inputs, so hdmi hookups won't play through zone 2 speakers. Have also tripped the internal breaker when powering main speakers and zone 2 simultaneously.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Weak, Zone 2 Limitations

  • Excerpt: What appealed to me about this AV Receiver mainly is the vast amount of HDMI ports it has on the back! Once I received and un-boxed it I noticed the stunning display and beautiful design. However it is a bit big and looks old fashioned compared to other devices such as Playstation 3's and Sky Digital Boxes. It let's off massive amounts of heat but is an absolutely fantastic amp. I connected a set of 5.1 Onkyo speakers to it and I'm amazed at the sound.

Man kann nicht alles haben !

  • Summary: Der TX-SR507 ist ein Gerät, dass für wenig Geld sehr guten Klang bringt, vorausgesetzt die richtigen Boxen sind angeschlossen. Die Leistung ist ausreichend für einen Raum von 30qm. Die Optik passt auch, hat jedoch den Nachteil, dass die Beschriftung der kleinen Schalter und Knöpfe in einer dunkelen Ecke nicht mehr lesbar sind.
