Summary: To put it simply, Onkyo makes a great receiver. You can use either banana clips or wire your sound system directly to the receiver. Both are easy options. I didn't need a lot of instruction to set it up, and the HDMI video/audio tranfers perfectly through the receiver.
Summary: I bought this unit for parts to fix an existing receiver. I like that it was the same exact model and that it was black while mine was silver. It has RS232 which will allow for 2 way communication for my custom remote control.
Summary: The Onkyo TX-SR705 provides incredible versatility and outstanding sound quality at an exceptionally affordable price - if you can find one! This receiver is perfect for a small to medium sized home theater using a large flat-screen.
Summary: I have a TX-SR705 with the terrible HUMMM problem. The noise started 2 weeks ago, about a year after I bought it. I hear a low level hum in all speakers on all channels (DVD, CBL, AUX, GAME, etc.). Seens to be a huge sistemic problem with +/- 1 year of operation in a lot of units.
Summary: The sound quality from this Onkyo is amazing. The room is about 18'x25' and sounds as much like a mini-theater as I could ever imagine. I'm going to do a pro/con list as far as my experience has gone: Pro: 1. Wiring was really easy to hook up.
Summary: This receiver has decent power, tons of inputs, and proper HDMI switching. Speaker calibration is a snap using the included mic. The only minor complaint I have is that it sometimes does not respond to commands from my Harmony 670 remote.
Summary: I have been into home theater for well over 5 years, but this receiver, my first Onkyo product, has pulled everything together for the first time. The Audyssey system quickly evaluated my listening room with the tiny microphone and arrived at a perfect sounding equalization, balance and matching of...
Summary: It is hard to rate products like this. It is a super duper feature packed product. You get a lot of bells and whistles. Integrated amp has three main parts, 1) Power supply 2) Pre-amp, processor 3) AMP 1) Power Supply: 3/5 stars It creates lot of noise. It doesn't have very good isolation.
Summary: I got this receiver in Sept 07 and here it is July 4 and I have problems. Two of the three HDMI input ports do not function. The third ports sometimes works. I have reset and reprogrammed this thing repeatedly. I installed a DSP firmware upgrade with no benefit.
