Onkyo Double Ought Receivers Preview


Starting at $1599, the Onkyo TX-NR5007, TX-NR3007, and TX-NR1007 will have 9 channels of amplification with two independent subwoofer outputs all with THX Ultra2 Plus and new Audyssey DSX processing.

All three of these receivers, the TX-NR5007, TX-NR3007, and TX-NR1007 will be in stores by the end of September. We expect they won't be on the shelves for very long. With the feature sets and at these prices, they look to be a hard act to follow. Once...

Onkyo TX-NR5007 AV Receiver Reviewed


Like all "00" models from Onkyo, the TX-NR5007 has enhanced surround fields with more speakers to create a more enveloping sound experience. When playing music, our reviewer found it "the guitar licks were lively and dynamic, with solid bass depth and...

The new Onkyo TX-NR5007 is a wonderful-sounding receiver with more features and connectivity than anyone could ever need. The nine channels of amplification are customizable to power a full 9.2 system in one room, or a 5.1 system for the main theater...

Onkyo TX-NR5007 AV Receiver Preview


The TX-NR5007 is the flagship model in Onkyo's current receiver line, also known as the "Double-0" series. The features 9.2 channel output allows for customizability in home theater setups. While a 9.2 speaker setup is possible, it's more likely than...

Excellent reference-level surround w/low distortion.


Excellent reference-level surround w/low distortion combined with superior video processing. All the HDMI inputs you will need for the foreseeable future - unless you plan on going to (notice I did not say 'upgrade to') 3D Updated on Jul 12, 2010

Every input/output needed for 9.2 pre-3D connectivity! Good on-screen setup. Clean sound in all processed modes, even when driving 4-ohm front speakers. Runs cool-warm with adequate ventillation

Universal remote is not as handy as Harmony One, but still not bad for an included item! HD radio not included - need to buy an additional component

Excellent Feature Rich Powerhouse


Amazing power and quality of sound

A little complicated with so many different sound modes

Very Nice


I have owned this one since Oct 2009. I had an Onkyo 706B prior to this and have used Yamaha's for last 10's. (The newer Yamaha's just did not have the Features/connections I needed when I bought this. I am a huge Yamaha fan!). I love this reciever!...

Great on screen display. The Calibrated setup mic worked very well. (and very easy) ; Very powerful. 8 HDMI's in and 2 out, (simultaneously). Front HDMI connection. Front and Rear USB connections. Ethernet port ; Very high end Video upscaling for your...

It has a few second delay when switching input resolutions. (minor annoyance). Generates lots of heat even with sound on moderate volumes. (Even has a sticker on top saying "this reciever gets Faily Hot...Don't block the top.." Very heavy, (I...

Onkyo HDMI boards


I bought a different brand with less known issues. And that being said, there are a lot of good Onkyo units out that will not need HDMI board replacement service. DOA's are few.

A lot of pro's but, read below

Some Onkyo's, what percentage, who knows, Onkyo units 1007, 3007, 5007's have faulty HDMI boards & have to be sent in to Onkyo to get them replaced, U pay shipping in. And the DOA's, paperweights, more than there should be that's just poor Quality...

Very Pleased!


- I have to agree with the other reviewers, this unit is heavy (50 lbs). You need to plan ahead with where you will place this. My HT cabinet has glass shelves, and I ended up placing this at the base shelf (below the glass ones). While this worked...

I'm very, very impressed so far. I replaced my Sony STR-DE985 with this unit, and there's just no comparison. The 5007 is a huge step forward for me ; 145 watts/channel ; Front speaker bridging ; THX certification ; HDMI switching ; Ethernet for media...

Runs a little warmer than I had hoped ; Not really a true 'con' for the 5007, but initially I couldn't get my Denon 3910 DVD to play nice with the HDMI switching. After a couple days of searching the web on this, I finally narrowed it down to outdated...

Make sure you OPEN THIS AND RUN IT for a couple WEEKS straight as SOON as you get it. That way you can RMA it if needed. We were moving and didn't get it unpacked for 2 months (sat in my front room in the orig box) and now I can't RMA it.

NewEgg FAST Shipping and standing behind me

The unit. It just shuts off...all by itself. Went thru several tech support people...finally...Onkyo decided the unit is BAD. Really??? The best unit out there (supposedly) and it just shuts off...even with NOTHING plugged into it. I used to like...

Excellent HT Centerpiece


There are some bugs that require the unit be turned off then back on, but the ability for Onkyo to address those bugs have provide a firmware update makes the annoyance tolerable.

Outstanding unit with way more features than I will probably take advantage of. NewEgg was having a great deal and I took advantage of it. The Ethernet port is a real benefit if you have a home network with Internet connectivity. I can update the...

Size and weight are the two biggest factors. Most shelves seem to have a limit of 50 pounds and this is a 55 pound unit. The size of the unit alone will take up most shelves, but you also need to factor in the space requirements for all the connections...
