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.
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). Dave

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!
Summary: *Note* This is an older generation product. Just reviewing now because I forgot... First Impressions: Like all high wattage AV receivers, its big and imposing. For those of small or petite frame, you'll want two people to handle this.
Summary: Featuring a true 130 watts per channel with all 7 channels driven you can't buy a better receiver. With a $30 discount I got my first 805 brand new for $639 & change. I researched the Onkyo 875 & couldn't justify spending another $360 for a USB port & 10 more watts per channel.
Summary: I upgraded from a yamaha/energy home theatre "bulk buy" deal, which was ok for $1,000, but after upgrading my speakers to B&Ws, a new home theatre amp was required. After looking around for at least 6 months, I settled on the Onkyo 805.
