Summary: This is a high end receiver with enough options to satisfy anyone. Very easy install and setup. First receiver I've had with Zone 2, and I love that. This isn't my first Onkyo, so I expected it to run hot, and I wasn'r disappointed. Nothing an external fan from CoolerGuys can't handle. It's a heavy unit (darn near 60 pounds) and is quite tall. Be sure to give plenty of ventilation. Power to spare, very clean sound, and great versatility. Very pleased.
Summary: I am not Audio Engineer but everything you read about this receiver is true. It is simply a wonderful piece of equipment, the picture and sound that it reproduces are unbeatable. Great Bang for your Buck. I didn't want a receiver that streams radio off of the computer or anything else on line that is why I chose this verses the 876. I found it easy to hook-up since being an TX-SR701 owner, they are somewhat close in configuring the system. This one reaches temp.
Summary: I only have component video (older 64" Pioneer Rear Projection TV I can't part with), so I can't judge HDMI or up conversion. That said, this unit sounds great, the set up is so easy with the Odyssey, and has loads of power for the most demanding source material. The video is slow to change from source to source, but tolerable. Make sure you have plenty of ventilation as this unit really runs hot.
Summary: When used in conjunction with a universal remote such as the Harmony 880 it is truly an outstanding product.Had a few problems with the initial setup but the Onkyo help desk was great. Every single issue was resolved quickly and expeditiously.It runs hot but I found a great fan [...]Product code: A01_ACDC_HD-CW that does the job perfectly.
Summary: Great sound, I love all the different DSP settings, and the all channel stereo really does fill the room with sound. THX movies sound great also! The pre-amp outputs are particularly usefull since I already have a power amp. As for the video, it is abit hard to see the difference between upscaled or non upscaled video; But it does not hamper the image. The 4 HDMI inputs are very usefull also! Very easy to use and setup, GUI is easy to follow.
Summary: I went to the 875 from a Pioneer 120w per channel. The difference may not be the power rating so much as the 875's ability to decode all the latest audio formats, such as Dolby TrueHD, DTS HD Master, etc. Before I had the appropriate equipment Toshiba A35, Samsung 1400 which offer the above-mentioned audio formats, the bar had been raised for the sound, but with the newer equipment, WOW! Sensational!
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up, Good Power
Summary: I have had my 875 for two weeks now. It is excelent. Sound is very clean on all levels. There is a slight delay in the inputs. I purchased for the HQV circuit. Not sure yet if is worth the extra money over the 805 though. Would like to see a better remote. Would by this model again.
Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Durable, Good Power
Summary: I have my TX-SR875 hooked to 7.1 speakers Bose center, pioneer fronts, JBL surround, Aiwa surround back, and a custom made 300 watt 15" powered sub. Even though the speakers don't match it sounds awsome! Blows the doors out of my old pioneer system. It's easy to set up.I have no complaints, Definitely worth the money.
