Onkyo Receiver number 2

Angelo B., Newegg
19 May 2014
  • Summary: .This is the second Onkyo product I bought through NewEgg. While the first one became a disaster with in the first few months with all the HDMI inputs beoming loose, or unable to recognize the HDMI while connected.
  • Pros: First, it supports a 7.2 speaker set up which at the time I bought it was one of the few available at the time. It supports a nice number of HDMI, Component, and other inputs and outs. It supports a number of settings, such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD, Audysse...
  • Cons: Like the ONKYO TX-SR606 7.1-Channel Black Home Theater Receiver this one also has issues with clear dialog. As in if your watching a movie with a lot of sound effects which come across as LOUD which sadly drowns out the dialog. So you may find yourself having to turn it up & down as the film play...

HDMI is good!

James N., Newegg

  • Summary: We're using a 60" Sharp LED TV, Bose speakers, DirecTV DVR, Xbox Elite & Blue Ray with this system. We also sometimes plug in our digital video camera in the front HDMI slot. Works great. The one thing I'm struggling with is the video delay when playing Band Hero on the Xbox.
  • Pros: Reasonable price, audio & video switching
  • Cons: Not a sexy remote & seems to be delaying our Xbox video

You';ll be happy despite...

  • Summary: Cont. Downside. Onkyo customer support is worthless. And I mean big time. You get a reply every ten days and that's if you're lucky. The onscreen programming completely failed. Twice. Neither my original Onkyo or the RMA worked. Is it my tv?
  • Pros: Quickstart: When you plug in your receiver, plug in the microphone, set it where you sit and press enter a few times. It'll set your levels and give you the baseline you'll need. Then do your tweaking (if needed). Some of the features won't work until you complete this step. If your source input ...
  • Cons: Cont. Another feature on this receiver, and a priority reason I selected it, is Dynamic Volume. You can select light, medium, or heavy. If you're using your home theater for hd television, it puts obnoxious volume firmly in it's place. And it truly sounds right. No more "volume up" for conversati...

Great except for audio to TV

Carlos G., Newegg
15 March 2011
  • Pros: Good sound, setup was simple
  • Cons: bought this to connect to my new Vizio XVT553, using all HDMI. All worked well, except when turning off the receiver. I couldn't get audio back out thru my TV. Some glitch exists with HDMI pass-thru

  • Summary: I replaced my Onkyo TX-SR605 with this unit mainly because it supports 3D. Some of the additional features that I like... Pass Through HDMI even when the unit is in standby is an excellent addition. Some adjustments can be viewed while watching movie etc.

Great receiver for the money

FYB, Amazon

  • Summary: I've had this receiver for a month now and it works great. I have Fios, a Wii, an Xbox360, and a Panasonic Blu-ray player all running through it and have had no serious problems. Picture is great from all inputs. I haven't seen the upscaling problems other reviewers have mentioned.

Absolute best bang for the buck.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: All the receivers I have ever owned have always been lacking some missing feature or other that only the higher priced receivers would have. I love my music and movies, but I don't want to spend thousands on a receiver.

good for the price

Swam, Amazon
20 February 2011
  • Summary: I have had it for about 4 days now and have liked the way it operates and the on screen display in the TV. The sound is awesome, my previous onkyo Reciever got fried by lightning and my speakers are for 130watts. The audessy did a excellent job of calibrating the speakers for the room setting.

Very nice package

Dave, Amazon

  • Summary: The main reason why I swapped out my Harmon Kardon receiver for this one was because the HK has no HDMI ports. Other than that, the HK is an incredible system. I chose the Onkyo over many other receivers because it has an HDMI port in its front face - handy for plugging in a laptop.
