Terrific receiver, has multitude of options and easy PC or smartphone control
20 February 2013
Summary: I've had receiver for well over a year now and have not had a single issue with it. It has great power for my large power hungry speakers. I also have an outside zone setup that I ran some speaker wire to and that works great too. The sound is very good.
Summary: I have had 2 Onkyo's which were very nice, but a third that failed. Two Pioneers, descent, One Sony fair, and a Harmon Kardon which was a good receiver. The Yammies rule. I still have an old rxv 2092 flagship receiver built back in 97 and it still rocks.
Summary: I'd buy this again in a heatbeat. No regrets even though it was expensive. Use it every day and love listening and watching through it.
Pros: Purchased in November and while expensive this is a great receiver. processes ANY type of video input - using it with my Wii, PS2, PS3, Xbox360 video scaling - hdmi/1080p easy to upgrade android remote control app on-screen display is very helpful internet radio stations are great FM and HD recei...
Cons: UI can be a bit challenging to learn - lots of features to map to various buttons. took me a while to figure out i had to move 1 hdmi connector to a different port due to needing to map something else to one of the first ports.
Summary: Had this cranked LOUD for 4 hours during a college house party playing music videos. No problems. Everyone thought they were seriously at the club! I would highly recommend this AV Receiver for a long-term solution to any mid to high end Home Theater system for both music and movies.
Pros: Has enough power to crank all 7 of me floor standing speakers. Everything about it exudes quality. Solid build and parts. Even the remote weighs a ton! Pandora radio is sweet (after easy firmware update) and easy to add and remove stations. Music sounds unbelievable. The precision and ridiculous ...
Cons: No iTunes Air Play. Since Pandora is added via update there is no direct button on the remote so you must scroll the the menu every time to select it. Remote is great for setup but I wouldn't recommend as a universal for your whole setup. Use a Harmony One.
Summary: Just got it a week ago and the sound is great. I moved up from a Onkyo 6.1 1000 watt and this blows it away. I haven't gotten to use many of the features but I'm looking forward to it. I am very satisfied. It sounded great with my old speakers but I upgraded anyway and now I'm set for life.
Pros: Great sound, lots of power,many inputs, two out, so many features, good price and good looks, easy to update firmware.
Summary: If you're not a self professed tech geek, it could be very difficult to properly setup. I'd like to say not having a printed manual is an issue, but truth be told, the included PDF is nicely formatted. The linked indexes and chapters make finding information easy enough.
Pros: Plenty of HDMI ports and inputs, networking, it can be controlled by an iPad or iPhone. This receiver can also send audio / video to another room / zone.
Cons: You really do need an iPad or Android device to get the full enjoyment of this receiver, especially if you are using multiple zones.
Pros: Best receiver I have EVER owned! My sound spectrum widened 3 fold! My Klipsch Synergy speakers never sounded better! Sound is pure and crystal clear! Cranked it up and haven't noticed ANY distortion! 2 HDMI outputs! Inputs out the wazoo! HDradio is very cool. Picture quality on my Panny even impr...
Cons: Setup is easy, but you will have to dig around to find specific settings to tweak. AVSForum helped a lot! It will take you a long time to really get to KNOW this receiver, but initial setup is pretty straight forward. Fine tuning the settings takes a little research if you don't find what you nee...
