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: I bought the TX-SR875S from amazon.com on 3/13/08. No problem until 10/12/09 when I found the led front display was not working. I attempted to reset per manual suggestion...unsuccessful. I called onkyo and was referred to 2 service center in Dallas. I brought the merchandise to K.O. Electronics and was told it was going to take about 4-6 weeks and that they were the only service center in Texas (inferring I have no choice).
Summary: Great Sound and Video at a low price! Make sure you give it plenty of room to breath because it will run hot! Compare the specs on this to anything priced close to it and you will see what a great deal it really is.
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: 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.
