Affordable entertainment and a name built to last...
10 May 2012
Summary: Sophisticated look and compliments our entertainment components. HDMI and Fiber-optics is superb and the back panel makes it easy to hook up everything for a flawless Home Theater look and sound. Playback is realistic and sound takes your breath away!
Excerpt: For only $300, this is a very smart buy. I really like the quality of the music and the clarity of the movies that this receiver processes. The 3D HDMI ready ports are also my favorite features of this product because eventually I will not have to purchase a different receiver if I decide to buy a 3D TV. I highly recommend this product because for the price and the features, this is surely a good buy.
Summary: had this same model in the philippines, been using it for 9yrs now. the durability n physical built is bulletproof as they say onkyo is for audio as yamaha is for blockbuster/effectmovie, lately though my unit is having a memory problem, once the power is off, all the settings goes back to reset mode, damn i hav to put it in standby mode even if i'm out of town for the weekend,anyway at 9yrs that's already a steal considering i bought it new for usd399.
Summary: This is a great entry-level, HDMI 1.4 capable receiver. The Audyssey auto calibration of your speaker setup is truly impressive. I owned an old model Onkyo receiver without this feature, and this improvement was well worth the upgrade. One note: the receiver does not upscale component sources to 1080p, but if you're using the HDMI connections then it's a non-issue.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality
