Great receiver

  • Excerpt: Bought this receiver to replace my 15 year old Sony receiver that finally started to falter. While this unit has way more features than the old one, the best part is the sound quality. It is outstanding, very clear with a great punch. I use it mostly to watch blu-ray movies, many of them in 3D.
  • Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up

  • Summary: I had only owned Onkyo receivers for 15 years before this purchase but when the last one had heat source and circuit issues 3 years in and then total went in year 5, it was time to go in a different direction. Setup was easy and sound quality is good.
  • Pros: Easy setup and integration Cost
  • Cons: Air play can drop easily

  • Summary: I have had the receiver for about a month in a half and it works great
  • Pros: It works well with my Samsung smart tv, play station and cable box.Connecting everything was easy because of the one hdmi for the tv and everything else went to the receiver
  • Cons: I didn't understand how the pandora work when you have a smart tv and both are wireless.I would like a better manual for clear instructions for connecting to the hub but I can say customer service walk me through everything with no problem

  • Summary: Dollar for dollar you'd be hard pressed to find another receiver with this many features and sound this good for the same price. Set up was easy, despite no owners manual in the box. The sound is so much better than the Yamaha I upgraded from at around the same price.
  • Pros: Sound quality, features, number and type of available connections.
  • Cons: No 120 volt switched outlet on the back. No owners manual.

  • Summary: Great so far. Wifi is rock solid and I love using it with Spotify from my phone (surprised how good this sounds). Plenty of power for my moderate size living room, no need to turn it up that much if you want to rock the house or listen to a movie. Simple to run and connects well with all my devices.
  • Pros: Plenty of Power Ease of use Wifi/Bluetooth solid
  • Cons: Wonder if at some point I will miss the lack of HDMI input from the front?... Not so far....
