pure beast

S. Whitaker "superman1979", Amazon
20 December 2012
  • Summary: this thing is expensive. but it has a ton of hookups and more power than the average consumer would probably use. the only problem is it doesnt pass 3d. but there are work arounds for that .

Great Receiver from Onkyo

Alisa M., Newegg
27 July 2008
  • Summary: Heavy.... REALLY HEAVY didnt buy from the egg.. paid a bill more in dec 07
  • Pros: Great sound and looks. A lot of inputs. Reasonable price
  • Cons: Overheats... when using over the 74dBA volume setting, in a loud part of the movie the receiver shuts down. Looking inside you see a large basic aluminum heatsink. A quiet 120mm fan or two would have alleviated this issue. Opening the case though would probably void the warranty.

Decent 5.1 Headphones

Pamela W., Newegg
19 June 2008
  • Summary: Decent for Gaming if your not doing alot of chatting online, but the headset part for 360 was hard to hear at times, could use a seperate speaker just for voice playback during chat.
  • Pros: Sounds great, easy to hook up.
  • Cons: Rumble is a poor substitute for Bass.

Great Product with speedy shipping

C. Grimaldi "Dimensional Astronaut", Amazon
18 May 2008
  • Summary: I purchased the Onkyo TX-SR805 7.1 Channel Home theater receiver to upgrade my Sony 5.1 (which I was never happy with because it sounded weak). I have to say that this Onkyo has surpassed my expectations in sound quality.

Exactly as expected.

Joseph L. Childress, Amazon
7 February 2008
  • Summary: This Onkyo product is just as advertised. I owned an older 6.1 channel Onkyo receiver that served me well for about 5 years (it lacked HDMI). Immediatly after setup of the TX-SR805, I played some material that I am very familiar with.

Onkyo 805

Firewagon, Amazon
6 February 2008
  • Summary: Receiver is more than adequate for sound. Questions remain concerning how well it operates as a component switch. I have yet to upgrade to an HD TV so my eval on that score will have to wait.

An outstanding Intermediate Level reciever at a sub $1000 price point

Myron W. Taylor, Amazon
6 February 2008
  • Summary: I would recommend this receiver to 75% of the audio/videophile population. For beginners, the amount of "Bells and Whistles" may seem staggering to learn about and actually use, but this unit breaks the functions down logically and with step by step instructions.

Very good receiver

D. Pauley, Amazon
6 February 2008
  • Summary: If you buy this receiver, you're in for a lot of good features, easy setup and a hernia picking it up. The connections are very easy to set up on this receiver. I especially like the little tags that Onkyo provides to let you label the wires for you speakers, so you'll know which ones go with the...

High Learning Curve

H. Miller, Amazon
6 February 2008
  • Summary: Coming up to speed with this model Onkyo receiver must be like someone trying to learn to use a computer for the first time. You learn by playing around with it for many hours to understand all of the features because you certainly are not going to figure it out by the manual.
