Summary: This is a great Amp. I have several hi-end amps and this one ranks right up there. The set up is very easy. I'm using it a home office with 47" Panasonic led tv and u-verse cable. Using the 'smart' part of the tv works great with the amp. The Focus surround system of speakers handle the power well.
Summary: I bought this receiver to replace a Denon 3801 that I have owned for over 10 years. The Denon still works fine, but I needed a receiver with HDMI capabilities. The Onkyo is a large and heavy unit. It generates quite a bit of heat so it needs to be placed where there is sufficient space above and around it to allow the heat to escape. The advantages of this receiver are: 1) lots of power.
for clarity and awesome power this is the best receiver I have owned.

Summary: If your looking for the most powerful receiver going ,this is it.I have Infinity Quantum 2 speakers,they don't evn wake up until you feed them at least 250 watts. This beast of a receiver has been tested at 369 watts at 1% distortion driving 4 ohms (exactly what the Infinity's need).

Summary: If you get a chance to see this in action, take it. I know Onkyo was really on the ball when they made this receiver. Yeah I had to download the manual and it was kind of spacey, but in the end I set it up and think it really rocks! This is too big for my room but the room is hugely exciting to be in now that the system is set up. You just want to listen to the sound, whether it is music or TV. Who gives a crap about what the neighbors think!
