Summary: For the money this unit is hard to beat. Great sound, but setup is not for the technology challanged . Love the HDMI capability...if you are going to buy this receiver , don't throw low end speakers on it.....spend a few bucks more on some higher end speakers. The difference is worth it !
Pros: Accurate Controls, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Got this receiver for its dsx feature. When set-up according to directives, it adds a far more expansive area of sound. Although this feature is dependent upon source, most of my dvd's are sounding far different and far better than before.
Pros: Clean Sound, Easy Setup, Great Sound Quality
Summary: Upgraded from older Onkyo 777. Love the new remote. The only CON: Remote is not back-lit, like my old onkyo one, and cant see it in the dark. Love that the TV channel, power, and volume are in a section of there own, and always work (or dont have to choose TV to make buttons work, like most universal remotes). Love the on screen setup menu TV output. Especially the remote setup code lookup, on screen (vs, looking up in manual).
