Best home theater receiver with HD Radio

Theodore de la Mare, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • 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 .

Great Receiver - If you can get it used now do it!

Hoof Hearted, Amazon
7 January 2013
  • 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. The home theater will rock with this output.

Surround sound receiver

Carl G. Koplin, Amazon
23 November 2012
  • 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. It seems to be built to go into the future - as it has the mid back channels, where all the movies seem to be in the 5.1 format. You can tell each of the system imputs what audio format you want it to use, and it remembers.

Onkyo's HDMI switching is its downfall

Marty in Oz, Amazon
8 October 2012
  • 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. It's already been in for work under warranty to replace the HDMI board, which apparently is unreliable.

Best Bang for Your Buck

B. Eckert, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • 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. At the time it was retailing at most online, and brick and mortar stores for over $2,000, occasionally finding it for a couple hundred off. But I got lucky and saw it on sale on Amazon for $987.52 a steal of a deal at the time.

HDMI issues after 1 year.

Eric D. Snyder, Amazon
14 May 2012
  • 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.

Fantastic

Raman, Amazon
27 April 2011
  • 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. Con: Does not connect wirelessly to internet this would help to update software which company releases from time to time.

Arrived Defective - HTML "No Signal" message

J. Beakley, Amazon
28 November 2010
  • 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, but, if I connected the cable box to the receiver with an HDMI cable, the receiver would malfunction - the receiver would display a "no signal" message.

HDMI input

DMD Ranch, Amazon
4 October 2010
  • 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. Yes, it generates heat in my closed cabinetry; but nothing dramatically more than any other high powered unit.

Great Receiver, Great Deal

J. Day, Amazon
14 February 2010
  • Summary: Let me start off by saying that I'm not really buying into the 2010 receiver lineup. I don't believe that DSX is that great of a feature, I don't believe that HDMI 1.4 will be that necessary. Therefore, I purchased last year's 876 for a STEAL. I am upgrading from a 2006 mid-level Denon receiver and really needed HDMI scaling. I appreciate that this receiver will let you choose what setting to apply on each input.
