Summary: This receiver was great for a year and a half. It progressively started having trouble with the HDMI SWITCHING until one day it would not switch at all and the hemisphere connections were unavailable. That was an essential feature for me since the Tv was a ways from my components.
Summary: I read a great review of this receiver in Sound&Vision magazine. I bought it. It sounded great for a couple of months, then BLAM. It started making horrible noises when in certain listening modes that were loud and nearly blew all my speakers.
Summary: UPDATE 2: Got the replacement finally. Hooked Cable box via Component to Receiver and HDMI from receiver goes to TV. Same issue. After heating up a bit, gives blue screen. All HDMI is having no issues. This cannot be a TV issue.
Summary: As per the previous reviewer, I also had a bad Audyssey mic, and thus couldn't use the auto room setup. Onkyo customer service insisted that it was because I had my system bi-amped and wouldn't work under that setting. I doubted it, and undid the bi-amp, and of course same problem.
Summary: Wer Mehrkanalsound über 5.1 oder 7.1 Lautsprecher hören möchte,der wird vergebens nach einem Mehrkanalverstärker suchen. Es gibt nur sog. Stereo- verstärker für 2 Kanäle von mehreren Anbietern. Wer also mehr als nur zwei Kanäle betreiben möchte, der muß auf einen sog. AV-Receiver zurückgreifen.
