Onkyo TX-NR414

 

Our only hesitation is about reliability, with the conventional wisdom of the Internet (see forums and user reviews ) being that Onkyo's receivers are a little flaky. It's hard to determine whether that's true (there are a lot of reasons why user...

The Onkyo TX-NR414 is an extremely affordable receiver with six HDMI inputs. It has built-in networking with extensive streaming-audio support, including Pandora, Spotify, Rhapsody, and Internet radio. Wi-Fi functionality can be added with a tiny,...

The TX-NR414 lacks several features that would have been nice, such as a graphical user interface, 7.1 channels, automatic speaker calibration, and AirPlay. User reviews of Onkyo products sometimes complain about unreliability, though the TX-NR414 has...

The Onyko TX-NR414 offers the best AV receiver value for those with a tight budget, although the step-up TX-NR515 model is worth the extra cash if you can afford it.

Onkyo 2012 Budget Receiver Line Preview

 

Onkyo's new 2012 line of entry-level receivers sport upgraded amps and tons of networking and streaming features but leaves out room correction under $500. Silicon Image's InstaPrevue is available.

All in all, the 2012 budget receivers look to be a solid offering from Onkyo. It is clear that they have chosen, when possible, to go with networking and compatibility features rather than with upgraded room correction systems. Having a $500 receiver...

Onkyo TX-NR414 A/V Receiver

 

Last year I had the pleasure of reviewing the Onkyo TX-NR609 AVR (Home Theater, August 2011), which offered a boatload of features, including seven channels of amplification, firstrate video processing, THX-Select certification, and many of the goodies...

The TX-NR414 won’t satisfy the needs of a serious enthusiast for his main system, but then, it’s not intended to. What it offers at its attractive price point is the ability to easily connect up to six HDMI components (with InstaPrevue to choose among...

"For the money it is outstanding"

 

I have had this receiver for a short while so this review started with first impressions and I am adding to it. My initial reaction was entirely positive and remains so. First, the background stuff ... The receiver is a little taller than the unit it...

+ Sound is crystal clear, bass is not booming and the treble is sharp and clear

No Sound After 3.5 years

 

I will not buy Onkyo receivers ever again.

Worked well most of the time. No issues for 2.5 years.

After about 2.5 years, started having sound issues. It would drop out and come back on. As of 4/2/2016 (Today), I have lost all sound completely

ONKYO TX-NR414

 

This is an Onkyo problem and not just with this model.

good sound when it works

First of all this is not Neweggs problem. Had I known about the sound issue I would not have brought this receiver,the sound slowly takes longer and longer to come on and the network connection quit working and no sound at all now.

TX-NR414 struck dumb

 

Top marks for customer service.

Excellent performance all round. Versatile. Plenty of inputs and outputs ; Plugs into the network for internet radio ; No magnetic phono input - seems only low end or high end receivers have them - but we have a preamp which does the job nicely

Limited control over EQ, but this turns out not to have been much of an issue ; (Con and Pro) After a little over 2 years, the sound went yesterday. After Googling the symptoms, I found that this is a known issue and Onkyo will repair it free of charge...
