  • Pros: It works well with speakers and bass. Easy to setup. Loud. Lots of input HDMI connections.

First Onkyo ANYTHING

  • 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 -...

Oops Again

Travis M., Newegg
16 May 2010
  • Summary: I originally purchased the Sony STR-DN1000 which was completely defective upon arrival. I sent that back for a refund and purchased this Onkyo. Everything worked flawless until I tried to hook up an extra set of speakers to the Front High channels and noticed no sound.
  • Pros: Great price, tons of options, 7.2 channel (dual powered sub capable), Audyssey EQ.
  • Cons: Unit does get quite hot you have to give it plenty of room to breathe, no 1080p upconversion which isn't huge but still notable for anybody who needs something to upconvert for their older devices. The Audyssey EQ tunes everything very low and does not adjust the frequency cutoffs. Unit arrived w...

Very nice for the $$$.

Alfred L., Newegg
25 March 2010
  • Summary: I also have a TX-SR805 that I have had for a couple of years now. The 805 started dying after about 3 months. It took Onkyo 3 more months to fix after sending it in 3 times for the same problem (replaced it finally). They have quite possibly the worst customer service I have ever experienced.
  • Pros: Sounds great. Good feature set. Relatively easy to set-up. This reciever does almost everything right. Even my wife can tell a difference between this and my old receiver. The video switching for all my devices is most welcomed. (PS3, 360, DVR) Still have room for other devices.
  • Cons: Slow on format changes. Onkyo customer service is the worst.

SR607 problems with HTPC

Eric H., Newegg
1 March 2010
  • Summary: So my problem was with my win7 connect to my 607 by sp/dif. The sound would cut out on certain channel and certain shows. It seems there was an issue with the DSP processor on the 607 working with certain signals. I do not know if the problem is with the 607 or with the signal being sent or the PC.
  • Pros: Sounds excellent, easy to use, looks good. Very pleased with the product.
  • Cons: Tech support. I had an issue with SP/DIF and getting my PC to work with the 607. I contacted Onkyo 2x by email and had not received a response. This is why I rated this a 4 rather then a 5.

Mostly Good

  • Pros: Excellent feature set from a solid company - fast and free shipping from newegg. Audyysey is awesome - I love it.
  • Cons: Every speaker I plug into the surround back left speaker is not recognized by Audyssey and there is no output - I have contacted Onkyo for support on this issue - hopefully they come through in fine form - I will follow up after this is resolved.

Impressed so far!

  • 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.

My Initial Impressions

TW Flash, Amazon
30 December 2009
  • 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.
