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: This is an excellent receiver for the A/V buff for the price. It's loaded with features for handling both audio and video signals. I've got mine hooked up to an Optoma HD72 projector for use in my home theatre. Via the HDMI output the receiver will pass signals of 1080i or 1080p or it can upscale lesser quality signal. This allows you to plug in lower end components and still get good video.
Summary: Great unit-set up with Bose AM 7's; Sony NS-75H DVD; Charter Box by Scientific Atlantic 3250; and Harmony Model 8800 remote. The set up was easy and the results were GREAT. Love the Onkyo TX-SR804, and AMAZON WAS TOP NOTCH- GREAT PRICE/NO SHIPPING OR TAX, and QUICK delivery.LIFE IS GOOD. HOORAY FOR HDMI too.
