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.
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.
Summary: The sound quality is really impressive and I really like the remote. The set of features is incredible for the price. - Dolby TrueHD - DTS-HD Master Audio decoding - THX Neural surround processing - automatic speaker calibration - multiroom functionality for two more zones - Many inputs such as HDMI...

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

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.
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...
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.
