Excerpt: My husband and I love to watch movies and listen to music hooked up to a home theater system. We bought a speakers set with subwoofers from Polk Audio and we bought a 7.1 Channel Home Cinema Receiver from Onkyo electronics. I have heard good reviews from Onkyo products. I …
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...
Summary: I was really torn about getting this vs. the 608, but after reading about some issues with the 608's signal processing, I decided to save some dough and get the 508 (I really only need 2 HDMI inputs for my media room anyway). Boy am I glad I did.
Summary: I hooked up the new Onkyo in about an hour and it sounded great! The next day it wouldn't work for anything hooked up through the HDMI input/output. I called Onkyo service and was greeted by an unhappy tecnician (well it was a Sunday)who told me to reset the Receiver.
Summary: 2-MONTH UPDATE: I'm downgrading this from 5 stars to 2 because it's already starting to choke on us. Namely, the sound sometimes cuts out entirely, forcing us to cycle through the inputs (i.e. from DVD to VCR back to DVD) to get it working again.
Summary: The sound from my ten year old Onkyo TX-DS474 was now inferior and I had read very good reviews of the Onkyo SR 507, so decided to pre order the brand new SR 508. It arrived from Amazon on April 29th.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Sony receiver I purchased from Amazon 3 years ago (almost to the day). While there was nothing "wrong" with my Sony receiver, I quickly realized once I plugged the Onkyo in, that my surround speakers were not being utilized as they should be.
Summary: I have had two onkyos before this and they were fine. This one however, aims high for a low budget and obviously does not have good enough quality components to do the job. I am exchanging the one I bought and am getting another one hopefully soon.
