Summary: I am disappointed with how erratic the video switching is executed through this receiver. I have been living with this subpar aspect of this reciever for too long! All other features are fine. I am the proud owner of 3 other Onkyo receivers. TX-SV525 (15 year old refurbished unit still kicking), TX-NR609, HT-RC230. I am tempted to replace the 707 with a Denon 4311CI. The online community has documented HDMI board issues with the 707.
Summary: I purchased this receiver about a year ago and I have no complaints in terms of sound and capabilities. If I did not run in to problems I would have given the receiver 5 stars. A few months ago the receiver died, it was most likely due to it over heating. The receiver was however in a glass rack with no front or back doors so air flow should not have been a problem.
Summary: I purchased this receiver from Vanns.com through Amazon.com to replace my Yamaha RX-V757 receiver, which was getting a little long in the tooth. I wanted it mainly for the HDMI port switching function. The Onkyo is a solid and attractive looking unit. The HDMI switching section is excellent and it comes with a ton of external hook-ups. The sound is great with plenty of horsepower to drive a big home theater system.
