Summary: Very happy on par. And video & sound, very good HD radio But can get hot when pushing it so plenty of ventilation a must they do make a great unit. I run it with Maggie's and a Boston accoustic sub..
Summary: Onyko no longer makes the SR876 receiver. The tuner went out on my orignal unit and Onyko no longer carried the replacment tuner. So you can imagine how happy I was to find a referbished 876 on Amazon . Not sure why Onyko no longer makes a top of the line with HD radio (which is what I wanted)
Great Receiver - If you can get it used now do it!

Summary: I bought this via an avid upgrader type person on craigslist for around $250. Even at $400 used this reciever is a steal. 140W per channel, 4 HDMI inputs and a 2nd Zone if you want it. THX and Dolby plus Audyssey 2EQ XT is a HUUUUUUGE bonus. Pro's: *140W per channel is ridiculous.
Summary: I've had this for a couple of years. I use the Bose cube system speakers and sub for $1,000. I am totally happy with this. I have unlimited power, It has great fidelity at any volume I've dared to use so far.
Summary: Yes great sound, great features, but when HDMI switching is very slow, and then stops working altogether it's very frustrating. As they don't have shop fronts in Australia I have to go through a distributor and their repair people. So no contact with Onkyo themselves.
Summary: I have been interested in A/V equipment for a long time, starting out on equipment much older than me, and working my way up to newer and newer as I got older. After my first real tax refund I blew it out on this sucker.
Summary: The HDMI began to have problems after 1 year, though it would work fine 50% of the time. Realized it needed repair beyond warranty and nothing is covered. Otherwise great receiver. Apparantly the HDMI board is a known problem too.
Summary: I had been waiting to find a good price for this, once I found this at Amazon I bought 2 of these, one for my nephew. It is awesome product and music reproduction is just fantastic, I love this and hope this serves me for long.
Summary: After much effort and frustration, I was never able to get the unit to work. The receiver had trouble with the HDMI handshake with other home-theater components. I could get, say, audio to be processed by the receiver if I used the regular RCA/phono connections from my cable box to the receiver,...
Summary: I've had my unit for a little over 1 yr, and overall I've got to say that I'm happy with the purchase. The biggest problem is that one of the HDMI inputs has gone bad (nonfunctional). This is causing me some headache with switching the HDMI cable when I want to change to my XBOX 360.
