Summary: I absolutely love this receiver!! Has amazing sound and everything that I need for a reasonable price. With 7 digital audio inputs and 2 digital outputs, you shouldn't have to worry about having enough hookup spots like on many cheaper receivers or those from a year or two ago.
Summary: This is my first serious A/V receiver. I own a Bose Lifestyle 12 (Series 1) since 97 and then upgraded to Lifestyle 12 Series 2 two and half years ago by paying a $500 upgrade fee in order to hook up with HDTV and Dolby 5.1. I didn't do enough research at that time.
Summary: This was the heart of my audio-video system for two or three years and I was very happy with it when it was working. Unfortunately one day it simply stopped outputting sound. No power surge, no abuse, didn't even touch it -- it just failed. It still powers on, but won't give me any sound.
Summary: I just bought this receiver used off of Craigslist for a very good price. It replaced my Denon 2802, which I've been somewhat unhappy with for the past 4 years due to distortion at high volumes. This Onkyo TX-SR702 blows the doors off my old Denon. Louder, with clean power all the way to the top.
Summary: About 150 years ago, I use to be quite proficient with gadgets and new technology. Sadly, my brain hasn't kept up with today's leapfrogging pace. My personal requirements haven't made that necessary.
Summary: I have this receiver for more than 5 years now and never fails to amaze me every time I watch a movie or listen to my music. Even without the HDMI, getting the full use of digital-in (Coaxial and Optical Cable) of this receiver gives you great surround sound.
