Summary: This is a great receiver. Although it only has 2 hdmi ports. Since I have multiple devices I should have gone with a unit that has 2 hdmi ports. Other than that I enjoy the receiver very much.
Summary: So far it works very well. Better than my newer Demon unit that was sent back for repair. The sound is just as good as the Demon unit with better features available. The only down side I have experienced is that any change of listening modes is not displayed on my TV.
Summary: Overall the reciever work well. I upgraded from a 25 year old reciever so I would have the hdmi connections, ect. I also wanted to have a second zone to listen to music in, this unit has that feature, so we can still listen to the stereo in the sun room without needing anothe full system.
Summary: I've had this receiver for a couple of years now and it's worked very well. I knew about its limitations prior to purchasing so they don't bother me (e.g. only 2 HDMI inputs). Sound quality is quite good with plenty of volume to fill my 20x20 theater room.
Summary: Plenty of inputs, except for phono. If you have a conventional turntable, you will need a pre-amp. Involved set-up, but not diffficult. Good sound. I am using the A/V receiver with a blu-ray player, cd player and tape deck.
Summary: Compliments - the sound balance mic is cool, receiver drives decent power, has a ton of different audio formats accepted/decoded, sound field is pretty egg-normous with some big speakers. Giant, flawless, theater-like sound from blu-ray uncompressed audio.
Summary: I am using this unit with a Tivo and a Octigon 3X8 switch all on HDMI. I could not get the HDMI output to my TV to work with the switch however it worked great connected to the TIVO. I connected the Onkyo HDMI input to my switch and the connected the TV also directly to the switch.
Summary: I have been very happy so far with this receiver. The various listening modes are great, it has a healthy number of input/outputs, and it was relatively easy to set-up. The only fault I can find with my Onkyo receiver to this point is that it really runs very hot.
Summary: I like this reciever. It really gave an added dimention to my TV sound. I do have one problem though. I am a cable subscriber with a HD Box, with HDMI out put to my TV. Non HD chanels look great but HD chanels over load the upscaling circuits.
