Summary: I purchased Onkyo HT-R590 7.1 system 2 years ago. Then 2 days ago, sudden sound to speakers and headset stopped working. I went through all trouble shooting guides, power on/off, reset to factory. unplug for 1 hour to clear capacitors. Then I googled... On NO!! Now I see everyone complaining... ALL ONKYO receivers have same problem, after 2 years the SOUND and HDMI board goes bad!!
Summary: Bought this to substitute my 8 years old hifi stereo composed of a Vincent SV226mk amplifier, a Vincent CDS1.1 cd player, a Logitech Squeezebox Touch stream box and a pair of Quad 11L speakers. For those of you who may not know, these equipments are of very good quality and together cost about 2000$. Unfortunately I just needed to sell them, basically because I needed some cash.
Summary: The audio quality of the Onkyo Mini System is very high for such a small format and price, I was pleasantly surprised. Important is its ability to play audio files from hard drives or USB flash drives, this is the future of playback. However, Onkyo does not like hard drives with a mixed content, for instance, audio and photos. I apparently tries to read photos as audios and gets stuck.
Summary: Easy to set up. Deep rich sound. Easy to connect to Internet. Don't purchase the wireless adapter for the internet. It does not give a good connection, instead just connect directly to the internet and you will immediately be able to hear Internet radio. I love this stereo system!
Excerpt: I bought through the phone becasue I wanted to make sure the item was of the same color as the listing photo. I was assured that it was...but it wasn't.I was very annoyed at that salesman. But the next costumer servicewoman was courteous and helped me return the item with little fuz. Issue resolved.
Summary: The Onkyo CS-N755 is an excellent value. The quality of sound from such a small set of speakers has to be heard to be believed. It easily out performs sets costing twice as much, and fits in a quite compact foot print that easily fits on most bookcases.
Summary: Very happy after a few weeks. Tried Onkyo's WiFi adapter and it connected from 25 feet one time--useless Kind of shocking that Onkyo would put out such a low quality adapter. Then tried the other brand recommended and could never connect, although many swore by it. Used ethernet hard-wired connection it I was in business. One bit of advice: Use your PC to organize your Spotify, Aupeo, etc.; then the NET menu is pretty easy to use, despite its tiny screen.
