  • Summary: This unit is easy to set up and use. I had a problem with this unit and shipped it back [...] I am waiting for the replacement. I have 100% tile, which makes it difficult to understand the TV. The Onkyo set up, and remote mic that is used to set up speakers works great. You can also adjust the sound on the fly, which I like. The sound is clear and powerful, even with a home that is all tile.

One great receiver!

  • Summary: This receiver delivers as promised, it has settings abound and it was easy to set up and to get working. It makes my klipsch rf-82's sing, music and movies sound great. The main reason I wanted this unit was for the HDMI uses and the processing chip it contains. Some reviewers talk about it running hot, I have not noticed that much different than my pioneer elite receiver.

Superior value, but has a few quirks.

  • Summary: This receiver does nearly everything perfect in my book. On the audio side of things I can only sing its praises. Power is solid, clean, and controlled, in other words transparent. On the video side everything works as it should and you have flexibility in how you would like your video signals processed by the Reon chip.
  • Pros: Accurate Controls, Clean Sound, Good Power, Good Reon Implementation, Intricate control of inpu, MultEQ-XT with Dynamic EQ, Robust power section
  • Cons: Cannot choose Audyssey ta

Great warm sound, odd volume levels

Paulie Walnuts, J&R

  • Summary: This receiver is a pretty good fit for most applications. Great, warm, Onkyo sound and with very nice depth. Volume contols are a little funky in the fact that you need to turn the unit to 30% of volume to even hear the source material (Onkyo says this is normal). Other than this minor issue, this is a pretty good little machine.
  • Pros: Clean Sound, Durable, Easy To Set Up
  • Cons: Weak

Good ZDeal !

Deputy155, J&R
18 February 2009
  • Summary: I had a onkyo 674 @90 watts and moved it to a bedroom . There is a quite a difference in output, moving to 130 watts ! Same clean sound just more of it ! I run my OPPO DVD directly to a 55" Samsung LN950 so don't use the upconversion of the 876 but it's nice to know it's there ! I can manually set the speaker outputs and they stay the same each time I turn it on wheereas my 674 needed to be reset everytime you turned it off !

  • Summary: I enjoy mostly concerts with this piece and I have to tell you impresive gentlemen. I am Klipsch all around this thing and and pound for pound,just look at the weight,this is the best a/v reciver I have ever bought. Do you homework like I did and you will see that this piece is the best bang for your buck.140 watts by 7,take your head off cleanly.

Not For Me

***IDONTLIKEONKYO***, J&R
28 January 2009
  • Summary: Well I bought this because on paper it had good specs! Boy was I wrong. The Auddessy setup made my klipsch rf-7 speakers sound way to harsh! Even if all the audio setting set to flat, the sound stage was just, too bright, and not natural sounding, I even found myself turning it down........That never should happen with a good audio source. After abut 2hrs of music and video playing my front room was about 10 degrees hotter!
  • Pros: Good Power
  • Cons: Harsh sounding, Poor Sound, Runs Way Way To Hot, Video switching issues
