Buy it NOW ! I'm more than happy with this unit ONKYO one of the Best
19 June 2013
Summary: Great sound for this the price tons of HDMI'S and other put in . No ubs port for ipod cost $35 to add their dock on ebay. But still a very good buy. All in all I love it for a smaller room . 12 by 14 more power than I needed .
Summary: Bought this used locally from craigslist for $100 in "as new" condition, all accessories, manuals and box - really like brand new. At $1.11 per watt, it was a GREAT bargain. It worked mostly fine for the first month, but lately the video signal cuts out to my projector through the HDMI connection - this may not be the receiver, but rather the cable or line voltage drops which I am reading HDMI is sensitive to (something about losing the handshake between).
Pros: Features to $$$ benefits, 2 subwoofer pre-outs (7.2)
Summary: This is my first Onkyo amp, and my first HDMI equipt amp also. Works great for me. Almost every Input is filled with a HDMI device (this amp made me a true believer in the greatness of HDMI). Antec Veris cooler has been on it from day one ... turns pretty hot into "luke-warm". We run it about 6 hours a day, everyday (TV speakers are never used). Nowdays, it's running a full set of full-size Polk Audio Series II speakers.
Pros: HDMI 1.3a, good power, Audyssey 2EQ, 630 watts
Summary: The operations and functionality of this unit are awesome for its price range. The sound is incredible and it makes watching movies and shows in surround sound an entire new experience compared to the old 5.1 surround. My only complaints are cosmetic. My unit is in an entertainment center on a shelf about knee high and reading the labels on the button requires kneeling to the floor to read them.
Summary: This is a great receiver from a great buyer. I took a chance purchasing a refurbed product, but it has paid off thus far. The switching and upscaling capabilities of this receiver are wonderful.
