Exactly what I was looking for!

 

This is replacing a 5.1 surround receiver, which had blown all channels except "center". That one never sounded that good even when new, because all the surround modes made the speakers hard to hear, had to play it in "multi stereo" to get any...

Great sound, lots of useful features, simple to set up and use, plays very loud without distortion. The network and USB features all work very well. Build quality is excellent, very solid and heavy. Did I mention that it sounds fantastic?

None I can think of...

Unit failed

 

This was my first experience with Onkyo. It will probably be my last.

Fit a niche need for my home network. Newegg's service as always was superb

Motherboard failure after 2.5 years of ownership. The cost of repair from the authorized Onkyo Service Center is more than purchasing a new unit under full warranty

Great bargain

 

I am very happy with this product.

Very easy set-up, great sound with my JBL outdoor speakers. I am probably under-tasking this device as I am only using it to play itunes/ipod and internet radio on two speakers, and it can certainly do much more. I am very pleased with how quickly I...

The interface via the remote can be a bit tedious and cumbersome. It would be great if there were a way to program the receiver with favorites and such once it was on your network with some software

Stereo for the 21st Century

 

I love this receiver. It sounds great. Onkyo makes other ones with more bells and whistles for home theater but I was really just interested in listening to music so this is perfect. I did upgrade the firmware right away.

Network connectivity: I have this connected through a Linksys WET610N wireless ethernet bridge. The unit can be accessed through a web interface. I have set up several internet radio stations. Anything that has a URL and streams can be setup as a...

Price is still a little on the high side but it does exactly what I wanted. I was considering dedicating a computer to my stereo so I could enjoy internet offerings and my digital music collection.

Can't Go Wrong

 

This is a great piece of equipment and it does what it does quite well. Volume control is smooth and the remote is laid out & organized well. Hook up literally took minutes. I have a graphic EQ and this receiver does not have inputs to recognize...
