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: 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: I bought this receiver to replace a six year old Yamaha that developed a nasty short circuit. The sound quality of the Onkyo TX SR607 is excellent and in fact an improvement despite somewhat lower power than my previous unit. I have two complaints. 1) the on screeen interface only works through the hdmi video. It does not work with component video or analog. I can see no reason for this as a user interface is hardly HD. So user setup is not as simple as it could be.
Summary: I bought this receiver after looking for a while and negotiating with the wife for weeks. It does what it claims with a few glitches along the way and reading the manual will put you to sleep. As I guy I really did try, but learning by experience is priceless. Now, when setting up the receiver using their own microphone and on screen menu be sure to have your speakers connected correctly and tight at the connection or the test will stop to find the optimal settings for...
Summary: I bought this to replace an Onkyo TX-SR674 (silver), which developed problems in the HDMI circuitry shortly after the warranty expired (go figure). I used the 674 another 6 or 9 months, until it got so farkled it wouldn't wake up my TV anymore. Having paid $550 for less than 3 years service out of the 674, I was tempted to try Denon or Yamaha this time around.
Summary: This is a very nice piece of equipment for the money. The sound quality is impeccable and it has many features. There are several items it doesn't have which disappointed me. There is no switched AC outlet. The panel is VERY difficult to read because the print is so small and there is very little contrast of the labels against the black cabinet. A digital audio source cannot be played through zone 2 which is a major setback for me.
Summary: I have owned and counted on Onkyo equipment for over thirty years. I tried other brands and always wound up disappointed in comparison. If you are looking for a high end receiver with all of the extras, this isn't it. Next to my 876 this is a pretty basic AV unit. BUT, it does exactly what it says it will do and does it very well. The sound is very clean, the setup is easy, it handles 7.2 channels very well and it has the same Onkyo quality I have come to respect.
