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!
Summary: Do yourself a favor and go with the SR608 because this thing is useless for anything but small junky speakers. Low quality quit working after a few days and Onkyo warranty sucks as far as service goes.
Summary: WATCH OUT!!! THIS UNIT HAS HORRIBLE AUDIO/VIDEO HDMI HANDSHAKE ISSUES WITH ANY COMPUTER, ANY MAKE OR OPERATING SYSTEM. CAUSES PROVEN BOOT FAILURE AT SOME "SUPPORTED" RESOLUTIONS AND MAY EVEN DAMAGE COMPUTER EQUIPMENT!!! DO NOT BUY!!. You will regret it! Onyko TX-SR508 is the ABSOLUTE WORST $248.00 EVER spent on Home Theater Equipment from AMAZON. Advertising is deceptive, and unit DOES NOT PERFORM AS EXPECTED/ADVERTISED.
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: To say this is a great deal is an understatement. Factory refurb with all manuals and a remote plus the mic necessary for speaker setup included. 4 hdmi ports handle your high end components. OS display makes setup easy.A great value at twice the price.
Summary: This reciever is so good I can hardly believe it. It is perfect for my surround sound system for my 55" Hdtv and 7.1 Onkyo speaker system. It is perfect for a relatively high end system for low end money. You would be crazy not to look at this receiver.
Summary: Purchased the sr508 in May 2010. Setup was easy, up running in about an hour. Has worked well but with a quirk. All in all this is a great receiver, great sound and great functionality. However on occasion the sr508 doesn't transmit the picture from its source only producing a blue screen, turn receiver on and off and that fixes the problem. Up until last week that was the only problem and that happened so infrequently it didn't really bother me.
