Summary: Everything it is supposed to be. Lots of features with good sound. Although it is rated as a 7.2 system, it will actually support 11.2 speakers and gives you options for the amount of speakers you want to use in the directions. The automatic sound set up worked great.
Summary: Does this receiver does almost everything I could want. But to get everything I would have to go to something 4 times the cost, so I'm very happy with it. Tons of features, including the ability to do do the new sound-fields using rear surround, front wide or front Height, but only 7 speakers total...
Summary: I bought it online two days before X'mas at a great price but the next day the price dropped another $20. What a bummer, though no complaint here. I received it in five working days as promised and in good shipping condition without any issue.
Summary: Audessy dynamic volume works great. No more jumping for the remote to turn down commercials. THIS OPTION ALONE IS WORTH THE PRICE OF THIS RECEIVER!
Pros: My background: I was a high end audio salesman for 2 years. I sold Meridian, B&W, B&O, Marantz, Mac, Adcom, Denon etc. I have heard many, many speakers on many different amplifiers and receivers. My equipment: Onkyo 707, Polk Monitor 70’s, Kef Q55, Polk RT55b, Energy Sub and Boston Acoustics HD5 ...
Cons: Cons: On screen display is only in white. When a light or white background is being displayed you cannot see the on screen. Onkyo a chance to change the color of text would be very nice. The unit runs VERY HOT even at normal listening. Onkyo please install a FAN!!! You cannot adjust the speaker l...

Great sound and wonderfull update to my 5.1 Technics

Summary: Originanlly purchase a Yamaha 465 for the HDMI switching. The Yammi was great, as compared to my 10 year old Technics 5.1 system, but when I found this Onkyo with 7.2 and THX, I just had to get it. Sounds even better than the Yammi.
Summary: The receiver was delivered on the date as was promised with free shipping. I am quite pleased with the product except I would have preferred it in silver to match my other components. There was no choice in color/style offered when I ordered it.
Pros: Great Value, Sleek Design, and it's ONKYO! Great sound with Uverse, BluRay, PS3, Sports, Movies, etc! Easily mountable without additional hardware!
Cons: I need help using the 'Audigy' setup, as I have my speakers setup with the front high, and it won't do the auto speaker setup since it won't recognize the middle surround left and right? If I can get this figured out, it would be an EASY 5!
Summary: Powers my 7.1 system just fine, but lacks the ommpf of the 805 I also have. An execellent receiver that I got at Newegg with a great price, no taxes and free shipping.
Pros: Easy setup. If you're familiar with Onkyo receivers, this should be easy. Plenty of connectivity. Plus, it sounds great and has the power you need.
Cons: Not really a con. I own a TX-SR-805, which has 130 watts a channel. There's a noticeable difference between the two. Would have liked to had 7.1 audio inputs like the 805. The newer receivers are all moving away from that now.
