Summary: I like the receiver auto set up only took minutes. It sounds great!! I was able to easily hook up all my components. I would recommend the system to anyone who is looking to achieve an excellent home theater. The only dislike is I wish it had more then two HDMI inputs, But definately not a reason to pass on this.
Summary: I bought Bose Acoustimass 16 speakers to go with this reciever. The set up took over 5 hours to hook up. Then it took couple of hours of teethig problems like bad conncetions etc to get the caliberation done. Then the sound level was very low at the default settings. Called customer service and changed levels and shazaam everything worked beautifully. I connected all my inputs including video and audio and onkyo remote interactive ipod dock through this reciever.
Summary: This product has worked out great for me. I have it hooked up through some polk monitor speakers and the sound is great. The video upconversion for evey device through HDMI is also wonderful. So nice not having to change inputs on my TV. The sound was great at first and then i plugged in the speaker calibration unit and it was twice as good. Highly recommended.
Summary: Nice Receiver, all my component hooked up easily. Manual not to bad, but it can't cover every component. Everything works great, I'm very happy with its functions. The 2nd zone is awsome to have. Souround sound in the livingroom and tuner in the other rooms.
Onkyo 674 7.1 Receiver-GREAT right out of the box!!!

Summary: Bought this unit at a great price on Amazon last month. Every is working great as advertised. Auto speaker set-up worked flawlessly. Sound is clear and colorful. So far, no complaints. Have it hooked up to a 5.1 speaker systen along with my DirecTV HD-DVR, my Pioneer PRO-FHD1 50" 1080p plasma and an old Sony DVD player which will be upgraded once the BR vs. HDDVD battle is settled.
Summary: I am a Yamaha fan by history but they did not have the features that this one does in this price range. Its easy to setup and works with HDMI great. No complaints or problems at all. I am VERY impressed with this product, check C/Net's review of it you will see...
Summary: I've only had this unit about a month, and I'm still getting the setup tweaked, but so far this AVR rocks! It has every sort of input/output you could want and is quite configurable. Read the manual carefully, or you'll get no sound here and there. The digital inputs have to be mapped to sources, but the manual and on-screen guide make it easy.
