great

KYLE, Amazon

  • Summary: Would never consider anything else for sound. Whenever this gives out (I use it quite a bit), another Onkyo it would be.

Love This System

Mark A. Grumet "labman", Amazon
1 September 2011
  • 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.

Great Receiver

Thomas F., Newegg
13 March 2011
  • 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

Important troubleshooting tips

Albanets, Amazon
26 February 2011
  • 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.

Great so far

R. Janzaruk "Mofro", Amazon
21 February 2011
  • 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.

It's an Onkyo, need I say more?

Tyson Wilcox "Carhothion", Amazon
21 February 2011
  • 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.

Nice for the price

Rick P., Newegg
2 February 2011
  • Summary: Very happy with the reciever.
  • Pros: For the price, this receiver is a very good buy. It has a lot of features. Easy to setup. Can be used to bi-amp the front speakers in 5.1 sound environment.
  • Cons: Unit runs hot. The specs call for a good deal of clearance above the unit. Be aware of this requirement when placing in a cabinet.

Just What I Needed

Marshall, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • 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.

Slippery Slope

sailor, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • 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.
