Summary: It worked right out of the box, beautiful picture and great sound. I was replacing an older Marantz that was w/o HDMI video, and this sounds every bit as good. Hookup was a breeze, and now I'll install 3 additional pairs of speakers (2 front & 1 side) to go from 5.1 and fully utilize the 7.2 capabilities. One important note: after mucking around in setup, I could not get my Sony BD DVD to display.
Summary: My experience with the Onkyo 707 has been a pure pleasure. I endorse it wholeheartedly. It is being used in my home theater. I think it is very important that I spend a moment describing my theater room's dimensions and speaker set up in order that you, the reader, determine whether my experience with the Onkyo is likely to be yours as well, should you be considering purchasing this particular receiver.
Summary: I compared the Onkyo TX-SR707 to a Marantz, a Denon, and the Pioneer VSX-1019AH-K. I didn't want to invest in a high-end receiver that cost thousands of dollars since technology changes so fast (which is the reason I am replacing my previous receiver - apparently bluray no longer requires both Dolby Digital and DTS to be on every disk).
Summary: I bought a TX-SR601 back in 2002 that has given me incredible service for many years. Decided to upgrade to the SR-707 and give the 601 to my 17 year old son (lucky boy!) I wanted more power, TrueHD and better DACs. Once again I am blown away by the quality of this unit. It has breathed new life into my home theater and I find myself revisiting old music dvd's to marvel in the difference. I am a hard sell as I am very picky about sound quality. Buy one!
Summary: I purchased this receiver on Black Friday through Amazon.com. It was delayed until late December / early January but thanks to the magic of Amazon, it somehow shipped early. Not only that, it also arrived 3 days before it was scheduled to be delivered on the tracking number. Needless to say, very pleased with the shipping process! I hooked it up the next day and I must say, I never expected to be able to notice this much of a difference in sound quality!
Summary: I originally purchased the Onkyo TX-SR507 and was unhappy with it.. I thought it would be the right model because I only wanted 5.1 support and that model also had the universal port for the Onkyo iPod dock. I decided on the Definitive Technology Mythos and a Definitive Technology Supercube 1 as my speakers and sub and I found the 507 to be somewhat underpowered plus the 507 did not support on screen display which at the time i didn't think was that bid a deal.
Summary: Kan inte säga mer en wow. Är så otroligt nöjd med denna reciver! Mycket goda möjligheter för inställningar till allt. Ett riktigt kraftpaket ! Kör denna reciver tillsammas med Yamaha NS-555 frontar,NS-C444 center samt Audio Pro B1.35 bas ! Låter kanon !
Summary: Rejält med kraft och redigt stor ljudbild :) Levererar suveränt ljud vad jag än pumpar genom den, och det finns inställningar så man kan pilla i evigheter om man så vill. Äntligen, fick jag all den kraft jag ville ha i hemmabion igen :) Rekommenderar starkt!
Summary: Köpte denna för 5490:- och ersatte en Denon avr-2105. Kör den som försteg/processor till Ino och Rotel och sånt. Fungerar superbt. Låter mjukt, väldigt rent, detaljerat och aningen kraftigare i basen än Denonen (som också låter väldigt bra ska tilläggas). Driver surroundkanaler som blendar ihop jättefint med Rotel 1080-steget till L/R. Har läst att Onkyo är bäst till film och lite tråkiga till musik. Denna låter jättebra till allt.
