Good Receiver but Zone 2 Falls Short

L. Kennedy, Amazon
3 August 2008
  • Summary: Agree with the previous post about the deficiencies of Zone 2. To only accept analog inputs is just ridiculous. I fumbled around for quite some time trying my DVD player (HDMI) and my cable box (HDMI) before I discovered this little fact when I finally tried the FM tuner (and later confirmed from...

Great purchase

George Greenstein, Amazon

  • Summary: The Onkyo TX-SR674 is an excellent home theater A/V Receiver, with all of the features I was looking for, with only one exception.....no phono input. However, that was an easy work around with a seperate pre-amp to one of the extra inputs.

A reasonable price for a truely fine receiver with HDMI up-converting.

Bruce Elting, Amazon
3 August 2008
  • Summary: I'm running my Toshiba DVD into it with component video and coax audio, my old RCA VCR with video and stereo rca jacks and my Dish HD DVR with HDMI. Video output is the single HDMI to a Panasonic 1080i plasma. Picture quality is great.

Works as advertised..almost

M. Boniface, Amazon
3 August 2008
  • Summary: As reviewer R L "A father in Pennsylvania" pointed out, this is a great receiver, but Zone 2 is definitely flawed. Not being able to play digital sources in Zone 2 is a big disappointment. I didn't plan on using any analog sources till I discovered this.

Almost perfect!

Jacinda, Amazon

  • Summary: The *only* thing I would add to this to make it a perfect scoring product would be to include HD Radio capability. Very happy with the upscaling, and is easy to set up. Highly recommended.

zone 2 clarification

ftz, Amazon
4 March 2008
  • Summary: To the top reviewer. Zone 2 amplifiers in all onkyos are 2 channel stereo amplifiers. just hook up a red white rca cable as well as your digital cables for each device you have connected to the receiver and you will have the joy of independent sources for zone 1 and zone 2.

Good for the money & does everthing well

Knuckles, Amazon
4 March 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this unit for $399 about a week ago after returning a defective Yamaha 2700 which was double the $$. I've never owned a Onkyo (always denon or Yamaha) but I wanted to give Onkyo a try after all the good reviews and I needed a reciever my wife could figure out without having to read the...

Nice receiver for the money

Amazon Customer, Amazon
4 March 2008
  • Summary: Pros: Zone 2 can play a difference source than the main receiver. Up-converting works well, even for my 4:3 HD-Ready TV. Sound setup was easy. Volume control in small increments. Surround sound works way better than my old Dolby Pro Logic receiver (worth doing an upgrade).

Great receiver for the price

Roger A. Scott, Amazon
4 March 2008
  • Summary: I just hooked this receiver up and it worked great right out of the box. No problems with the automatic speaker set-up. My only complaint is the receiver requires two seperate remote code commands to turn it on and off. As a result I had to get a new remote.

Awesome Receiver

K. Hoang, Amazon
4 March 2008
  • Summary: I really like this receiver and it's my third one, my first one was a Denon, lasted about 2 years, then I bought a panasonic, that lasted a year, I was ready to by a Sony when I read that this Onkyo is a good receiver and the pricing is pretty good too.
