Internet connectivity is POOR.

E. Hall, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: The receiver itself is above average for its price range. However the internet connectivity is very poor. It either will not connect at all, or after connecting will disconnect without any discernible reason. Additionally, when trying to search on Soptify, the receiver constantly locks up requiring that you shut it down and restart. ARRRGGGHHHH! Since I purchased this primarily as an internet connection device, I must give it a 2 star rating.

Great sound. Wireless functions no good.

Sean, Crutchfield
30 August 2013
  • Summary: I bought this unit to play music over 4 ceiling speakers in a large living area. Sound is excellent. The wireless control of the unit is consistently terrible. Most times I need to re-establish a connection with the router. And I know it's not my network because I have several other devices connected that never have a problem.
  • Pros: Sound quality
  • Cons: wireless integrity. features.

Clunky operation

Lincoln, Crutchfield
22 July 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this receiver because of the network capabilities (mostly for Pandora) and the fact that I can control it with an iPhone App. I use this to power a pair of speakers on my roof terrace, the recvr is 2 floors down in my living room so the App working correctly is a must...the problem is the App doesn't work well at all. I even purchased the MUCH BETTER non-Onkyo App (oRemote) but one major problem still remains and makes this setup NOT USEFUL for me.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: too many to list

Purchased for Internet radio, has been a failure

T. Thompson, Amazon
1 June 2013
  • Summary: Had Roku sound bridge that died after 5 years of service. I loved my Roku but they quit making them. Looked for a replacement and it appeared the best way to go was with an Internet compatable receiver. Purchased the onkyo with the USB wifi attachment. It worked initially after some work to get it set up. Then it lost the signal and could never pick up the wifi signal for more than 5 min after that if I could get a connection at all.

Question the reliability

MarkP, Crutchfield
28 June 2012
  • Summary: I have owned this unit for 2-1/2 years. Overall, I am not unhappy with the functionality of the product. Streams music over my network and the internet successfully, plays FM and AM when I want it, sound quality is decent. A little unstable about staying connected to my network. It needs to be restarted periodically. My real beef is that it has now stopped working for no apparent reason. Have been through what remedies are available to no avail.

Suttuinen ja samettinen soundi

EmppuV, Verkkokauppa
10 March 2014
  • Summary: Edelliseen vahvistimeeni (16 vuotta Technics A900) verrattuna bassot erittäin pehmeät (basareita ei saa esille ilman bassokuminaa) eikä laite pysty diskantin erittelyyn ja näinollen soundi kokonaisuudessaan kuulostaa hieman suttuiselta, tasoitetulta. Kuuntelen pääasiassa metallia mutta huolestuttavaa on että myös kevyempi tavara country, filharmonia jne kuulostaa liian samettiselta ja lämpimältä (eivätkä adjektiivit suinkaan ole kehuja), siis vaikea saada eri soittimista...

Hankala ja hidas

XX55, Verkkokauppa
11 December 2013
  • Summary: Nykyisiin nopeisiin ja helppokäyttöisiin laitteisiin verraten yllättävän alkeellinen laite. Säätömahdollisuuksia niukasti, toiminnot toteutuvat isolla viiveellä ja näyttöön ei tule tietoa esim. siitä, ovatko Repeat- tai Random-valinnat päällä vai ei, mitä Internet-asemalta soi, eikä edes säätöasetuksia. Myös USB-laitteiden ja Internet-radion menuiden hallinta kohtuuttoman hankalaa. En ostaisi, jos olisin tiennyt paremmin.

Nicht glücklich

Cannaris, Amazon
20 July 2013
  • Summary: Ich habe den Receiver nun seit 1 Jahr in Betrieb und man kann es drehen wie man mag, es gibt einfach eine ganze Reihe von Funktionen, die nicht funktionieren wie sie sollten. Keine Frage grundsätzlich sind Preis, Ausstattung und Verarbeitung in gutem Verhältnis. Dennoch hängt das persönliche Glück mit diesem Gerät von der Art der Verwendung hab - aus meiner Sicht. Ich habe das Teil gekauft, um Spotify, vTuner und DLNA zu nutzen.

Nach 3 Monaten schon defekt.

liberty, Amazon
1 September 2012
  • Summary: Ganz ehrlich! Dieses Gerät hat mich schon leicht zur Verzweiflung gebracht. Ich kaufte das Gerät Anfang Mai auf Grund guter Bewertungen in der einschlägigen "Fachpresse". Es wurde schnell und prompt von AMAZON geliefert. Nach ausführlichem Vorab-Studium der Bedienungsanleitung habe ich das Gerät in Betrieb genommen. Als Eingabequellen fungierten ein 160 GB iPod-Classic, ein Philips BluRay-Player, USB-Sticks und ein 47" Philips Fernseher.

Ganska dålig

RytmDoktor, Prisjakt
19 June 2012
  • Summary: Ljud läcker igenom mellan vinyl- och cd spelare, enligt Onkyos service så ska det vara så. Ljudet låter väldigt "skrikigt", som en för högt inställd diskant, hur man än försöker ändra på inställningar. Onkyos service bekräftar att ljudet ska vara så dåligt så jag fick tillbaka receivern men som tur var så bytte butiken ut den mot en annan av ett annat märke.
