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: 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: 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.
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: This review is written by my son as he uses it more than I do and can give a better review for it. His words are as follows: "As long as the THX audio decoder is not really important to you, this is one of the best and cheapest receivers you can get your hands on.
Summary: I won't pretend that I'm an expert audiophile or anything, had one of my friends help me hook up my system and explain several things to me, but after a few weeks of use this receiver is doing an excellent job. First one I've ever purchased and I'm using a 5.1 Jamo speaker system with it.
Summary: Did a lot of research and I am glad I purchased the Onkyo TX-SR507. Mostly looking for good sound with the proper connections to hook up blu-ray, dvd, game console, HDTV, etc. For the price this receiver makes the grade.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a 6 year-old Sony that did not have HDMI input, and could not decode DTS. It fit the bill - with most A/V components now running HDMI, the 4:1 switching feature cleaned up a lot of cabling and source switching complexity.
