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: I can't believe the bad reviews that got put on this receiver... I think everyone needs to go through the manual first and also remember that not all equipment is compatible with all equipment.
Pros: - 7.1 Channel w/Bi-amp capable 5.1 - High frequency ranges, good quality - Easy terminal hook-ups - HDMI 1.4 (3D) Capable - On-screen (HDMI overlay) controls/menus - EQ2 Auto Sound Adjustment (Microphone included) - HDMI control/TV control
Cons: - Runs hot (Expected of the power) - Cannot rename inputs - No Digital Coaxial Sound input
Summary: Great receiver. I found that many negative reviews here are user's faults (except for some factory defective units). I was able to fix many problems by googling and reading the manual. 1. REAR SPEAKERS in 7.1 configuration DON'T WORK. Dolby EX is off. Reason: Zone 2 is accidentally turned on.
Summary: Had it 3 or 4 months now and after reading the reviews I was a little worried. So far, no problems, works like expected. Hope it stays this way for a long time.(*knocks on wood*) Seems to be a very good product. Great sound.
Summary: Okay, if more must be said, then how about this: 7.1 channel audio and full HD picture (even supports 3D picture) handled effortlessly. All devices connect to the sound system, with just a single cable being needed to link the receiver to the television to provide high quality video.
Summary: I live in a small condo, so I did not need anything that was super loud. I wanted something that I could listen to at low volumes and would still sound great, and something that would not break the bank. This unit fits that bill very well.
Summary: I got more than I bargained for. I had a 7 year old Sony, and the difference was amazing. I thought it was a good value at first. But the sound was so much better that I bought some Onkyo speakers.
