Summary: I bought this to repalce an older model Onkyo and it has performed wonderfully. Although as of 2013, it's starting to become outdated, it still performs excellent. I may move up to a newer model but only if they Onkyo comes out with something mind blowing. As for now, I'm a very satisfied customer with the SR804.
Summary: In my estimation, for the money, this is the greatest sounding receiver. We had one that needed a new board. The board cost more than the receiver so we bought another brand. What a mistake. A real piece of junk. When I found this on e-bay, I jumped right on it. What a JEWEL. Works and sounds like a dream. Watched "Black & White Night" last night with Roy Orbison, What great sounds.
The Absolute Best! My Most Favorite Ebay purchase, by far.

Summary: I bought this to put in my garage/workshop but it was so nice that I put it in my house and put my old receiver in the garage.This Onkyo is very powerful, my old Klipsch KG 5.2s were just waiting for a unit like this. This unit has small dents and a couple of scratches, but I did not buy it to look at it. This Onkyo retails for $800-$900, the $300 winning bid was a steal. I could find no products for comparison.
Summary: lets face it onkyo has been making great receivers since the begining and this one is no exception it has true power and beautiful sound quality. It can be very easy to operate if your not familiar with how these things work, for example:it has the setup mic u just plug it in and it sets the sound up for you doesnt get any easier than that or if you like you can set it up manually.The zone 2 feature allows you to listen to two different things in two different rooms as...
Summary: I had been using a smaller onkyo receiver, klipsch fronts and rears, a non-powered 10 in sw sony Blu-ray deck, toshiba HD player, I decided to upgrade my Receiver to an Onkyo 804, WHOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA, that was by far my weakest link, this receiver was putting out the kind of basss that you could walk on it,,,,hope this helps somebody equipment wise if they"re in the hi-fi market, I almost forgot my yamaha cd player, I've had that since 1995, never a complaint from...
Plenty of power, crystal clear sound, great features, great price

Summary: For the price, I think the Onkyo TX-SR804S is a great piece of equipment. I use it in a home theater that doubles part-time as a family room for watching TV. The video upconversion and numerous inputs allow me to connect every piece of video and audio equipment I use into the receiver so that I only need only connection to the TV.
Summary: I purchased this receiver a while back after months of searching for a receiver that would fit all of my digital needs,and a receiver that would not be obsolete in six months. Let me tell you,this receiver rocks and am I ever glad that I made the decision to purchase the Onkyo TX-SR804 7.1 Channel Up-Converting THX Certified A/V Receiver!First off the price is hard to beat for all that you get what with the HDMI,upconverting, 1080p video,and hdmi upconversion!
Summary: Time came to upgrade the AV system again. after exaustive research the conclusion remained the same. Onkyo. Having previously owned a 797, the precurser to the 804, I have been very satisfied with onkyo's build quaity and clean sound. But now I needed to supply a new hdtv system with all the latest hdmi connections. I really wanted to try to consolidate all the anolog wires for the DVD AUDIO into a single wire.
