Summary: after used some receiver throught more tham 25 years like sony ,hamarkandon panasonic pioneer jvc yamaha i found the best for my ears onkyo if you can effort to pay onkyo receiver like 875 or the sense that i have 5007 and 3007 with one pair of klipsch rf7 and rf3 or you can get rf82 ,you never going to change to another receiver and speakers ,according to what can you effort to pay , onkyo is what you need i recommender for my experience
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: 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.
Does not overheat, excellent receiver for the price

Summary: Whoever has been posting reviews claiming that this receiver runs way too hot, or even catches fire, is playing games. Yes it gets quite warm on top, it does put out 7 by 130 watts after all, but no more than normal for a high powered receiver. I bought it to replace an older seven series Onkyo in order to have the HDMI connectivity. Musically it is excellent and, as other reviewers have pointed out, has a very full set of features.
Summary: After conducting an incredible amount of research on AV Receivers, I became confused. In the end, in the $1,500 price range, it came down to the Yamaha RX-V1800 and the Onkyo TX-SR875. I almost went with the Yamaha, because of all of the reviews about the Onkyo running so "hot". This receiver, like most receivers, does run warm, but not as hot as those reviews would lead you to believe. This is an AWESOME receiver.
Summary: I purchased the 875 for the high def component switching that my 801 couldn't accomplish. The Reon processor is great, once I figured out how to get to the menu and adjust the edge enhancement. Naturally, the receiver also puts out terrific sound. I haven't had any overheating problems whatsoever. The 875 is not running any hotter than my old 801.
Summary: I've had this receiver for about 2 weeks now. It set up quite easily using Audyssey and the included microphone for sound; connections were easy to use and assign; video upscaling was simple as well. The receiver does run rather warm (45 degrees C according to the receiver), though I've added case fans to the top of the receiver. It no longer runs warm (25 degrees C).
