Summary: After my Onkyo TX-SR606 literally caught on fire, I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Best Buy had sold me on the GeekSquad warranty, (which I have never purchased in the past), and wound up taking three weeks to service my reciever.
Summary: Just hooked - up this receiver. Replaced a Denon 2312ci which was decent but does not compare with the sound quality of the SC 55. Where there was a significant price difference originally, I have found the 55 price to be very good at this point.
Summary: The receiver is full-featured to say the least. It is probably too much machine for most people who are not audiophiles because it is complicated to set-up and operate. But if you are an audiophile, this is certainly the receiver for you.
Summary: Sound is fantastic (natural / warm) and always cool to the touch..The remote is thin and the buttons are very small. It easily falls from your hand. My wife and I are always hitting the wrong button.
Summary: I purchased my SC-55 about 3 months ago. Setup was easy. The MCACC worked great except the sound was a bit bright so I went in and flattened the equalizer for each speaker. After I did that, the sound was perfect with very balanced sound and not too harsh on the ears.

Summary: This receiver will exceed all of your expectations. Both my tv and speakers have improved 50 fold. Everyone who has heard my prior hook up are amazed how the new receiver sounds even better than the old. Great buy!
Summary: BUY THIS RECEIVER! If you want ungodly sound and complete control! Just got this receiver on Friday 6/15/2012 and started setting it up immediately! Got everything up in about an hour. Using the mccac automatic set up it was a breeze.
Have Mine too! SC-55 review--no complaints! Repeat buyer!

Summary: Received my SC-55 after a LOT of research. Bounced back and forth between Denon high end ($3,000) model and this one. I had an Elite 94 a couple years ago and loved it. This one appears to be nearly identical except for a few connections on the back and this one appears to have a few...
