Summary: Great piece of equipment. Does everything you will ever need it to do and with plenty of power for bookshelf speakers. It is an old model so expect no HDMI hookups - only digital optical, which is not a big deal.
Summary: I must say, this receiver surpassed my expectations. The channel separation is excellent. I am hearing details in movies which I have never heard before. I previously owned an Onkyo TX SR805. I was using that receiver as a pre-amp. However, there has been some discussion for Onkyo's safety in regards to heat and the use of the receivers chips overheating while pre-out.
Summary: The only thing I didn't like was getting the speakers setup. Even though it has a microphone and you can auto calibrate the speakers, it just didn't sound quite right to me. Other than that, I love it!
Summary: Excellent Amp, plenty of Digital audio inputs, Powerfull, programming can be done on your tv via the screen menus, makes itreally easy for setting up. 6.1 config works flawless, Unit is very stylish but very heavy, good and sturdy built. Plenty of Audio Modes and Effects.
Summary: I have a beef with the remote on this unit. All remotes included with units above entry level must have learning capability. This remote, sadly does not. The quality of the reciever is pretty good. It seems well built. The front control panel is well placed and the rear jacks are intuitively placed. The volume increases and decreases in TINY increments....which is a good or bad thing depending on how you look at it. The e-z setup was pretty easy to do.
Summary: Excellent transaction. Delivery was prompt with the product as expected and in new condition. This was especially appreciated as the first selected Amazon reseller did not respond to any of my emails and I had to cancel that transaction.
