Sounds great, Looks good, Easy to use

 

Great product really enjoying my time with it, Love the internet radio feature however online radio stations need to broadcast in higher quality.

This is a great AV Receiver I don't have the most expensive speakers with this receiver but it sounds great, audio quality is super weather it's music or movies. Easy setup, I rather like the look of the on screen GUI easy to navigate and find what your l

Navigating an iPod with the remote could be improved

Useless receiver - Do not buy.

 

DO NOT BUY THIS RECEIVER! Since I took it out of the box, it's been non-stop issues. On the initial setup, most of the HDMI ports did not work. After reading around, I come to find out that this is a common issue on Onkyo's receivers. Because I ......

Great Improvement in Sound Quality!

 

The sound quality is a great improvement over the TX-SR706 and the older series. Sounds more refined ,which is the hallmark of well known AV brands. Addition of USB port, additional HDMI output are appreciated. Not yet verified quality of 3D HDMI...

Improved Sound Quality, Network connectivity, Connectivity Options

Could improve on it's display which retains the same old format! Could be bigger! WiFi netwok access would have been great

Disappointing 3D effect

 

I've just got this 808 because of the 3D-ready. What a disappointment. Before I got this receiver, I've hook up the 3D Blu-ray directly to Samsung 8000 55" series 3D TV. The 3D effect is awesome. After I got this receiver and hook up everything with...

Sounds great, Easy setup, lot of speakers output to choose from, so you bi-amp some of your speakers

3D effect decrease when HDMI out from receiver to TV ; Wish there are 2 HDMI output instead of 1 ; you have to crank up the volume to very high in order to hear Theatre like sounds

This unit offers everything you need for the house

 

you can use your wifi to listen to internet radio, usb port for your iphone, many hdmis, 2 subs and the amazing oddessy automatic EQ that calibrates all speakers automatically. What else you want? Ah?

Sound quality is like a Nakamichi ; Onkyo did not leave anything behind on this one

Only thing I would prefer is a bigger remote control. With so many controls, why not

A bit disappointed

 

I replaced a Sony surround sound with the Onkyy and put the Sony down in my sound system down stairs and the Sony is still going. Onkyo is aware of the sound board problem and are addressing it fairly so I didn't give it a worse rating. It is a bit of...

Very capable receiver, easy to set up, great sound and video

after about 2.5 years the sound board suddenly quite functioning

Follow up review 2.5 years later.

 

A lot of the network connectivity issues were taken care of by a software update a while ago, which is good considering I control it through the network a lot. Overall this was a great purchase, and I would buy another Onkyo in a New York Minute.

All things I said in my earlier review 2.5 years ago are still true, though I can now say that iPod connectivity works for iPad 2's as well

The biggest flaw this receiver has is the remote. Slowly over time, the volume up function has failed. I can only get it to work maybe 10% of the time now. Luckily there is a solution for me - Onkyo makes a remote control App for iDevices, so most of...
