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: Great Receiver Until The 25 Cent Display Diode Blows-Then You Must Locate a Qualified Onkyo Repair Electronics Shop That Will Replace It With an UpGraded Part. I just sent mine out Advanced Audio Service, Inc. in Litchfield, Ct. all the way from Alaska. That was [...] bucks with insurance, and that's just One Way! Luckily I bought my receiver for a real good price & it was less than year old.
Summary: Excellent unit...excellent sound reproduction. The unit has a 1080p upconversion for your Plasma TV. I deem it a great buy, and very feature rich. I am no amplifier geek, but I can tell you that I have connected a lot of equipment to this unit and it functions very well. Disadvantages: 1) High heat output. 2) When connecting the video output to the TV, there is a time delay in getting the video signal to the TV when the system turns on. 3) The unit is heavy.
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: Really solid video processing. My objective was to improve performance while reducing cabling by using only HDMI cables. Does a beautiful job feeding 1080P to a Sony 60A3000 SXRD. Tuning down the SXRD's brightness allows a virtually artifact-free image.
Summary: I have had the 875 for a month now and it has performed flawlessly in my main home theater application. The initial set up was very easy to follow and it tweaked my B&W speaker arrangement with precision. The Onkyo 875 replaced a 2 year old Denon 2807 unit primarily because of the extra HDMI inputs allowed me to connect a Direct TV DVR, Sony PS3, DVD all via HDMI. The 875's power and greater ability to drive my B&W speakers is amazing and noticeably better.
Summary: this is the best receiever. dont believe in when some review say that onkyo sr-875 get hot and ... . it took me more then two month to decide after reviewing lot of comments about receiever's from sony, onkyo, denon and more. most of the receiever has more then one problem and only onkyo had only one comments about heat. so i picked this one and i just put one small fan and this receiever is cool. no problem . you can tuch it no harm.
Summary: Purchased the TX-SR875 new from Amazon on Dec 12, 2007. On 17th of June 2008 the HDMI output failed. It was returned to the Onkyo DTR Service Center in Denver, CO and they received it July 1, 2008. They stated the expected turnaround time would be up to 3 weeks. It is now August 13th and each week I get the same answer, parts on backorder. I contacted Onkyo USA and they followed up with DTR. This time they said it would be SEVERAL weeks before the parts would be in.
Summary: I have used my TX-SR875 for about seven months and have been very happy with the performance. I was concerned about the heat and have been using an external fan to create some additional cooling. However, the front panel LED display has failed completely with no warning. Web searches have revealed that this is a common problem. I am fortunate enough to have an authorized service center within a reasonable drive and it is covered under warranty.
