Onkyo 2012 Midline Receivers Preview

 

It is easy to get excited about the $1000 TX-NR717 until you see what the extra $200 for the TX-NR818 gets you. Audyssey XT32, 13.5 extra pounds and 25 extra watts per channel, and lots more.

Onkyo has long been known for having the most features for the money in their receiver offerings and the TX-NR717 and TX-NR818 receivers are no different. It is easy to get excited about the $1000 TX-NR717 until you see what the extra $200 for the...

Onkyo TX-NR818 - Pocket-lint

 

Home cinema audio is often neglected, with TVs getting all the attention. The truth is though, that you could spend less on a TV and more on your audio

Movie and TV soundtracks are brilliantly rendered, music sounds fantastic, some great online features, Android and iPhone apps,

Expensive, Onkyo just keep making better ones, menus can be slow and text input is a pain

Onkyo continues its yearly rampage of home AV. The 818 is brilliant, and the best-sounding AVR we've ever heard from the company. We're a little weary of saying this, but we honestly think this £1.000 model outperforms Onkyo's own £2.000 receiver from...

Onkyo TX-NR818

 

Onkyo's feature-packed AV amp is an absolute knockout

Extensive network features ; Potent movie sound ; Excellent picture processing ; Top-drawer build quality

No AirPlay support

Also on the back are eleven sturdy binding posts. These include terminals for the front, centre, surround and surround back channels, as well as front wide and front height channels for the built-in Dolby Pro Logic IIz, Audyssey DSX and DTS Neo:X...

Onkyo TX-NR818

 

Impressive power, features and functionality from this new Onkyo receiver

Solid build; looks good in silver; thorough specification; eight HDMI inputs; good picture processing; powerful yet refined sound; fine sense of scale

Unintuitive control app

Make no mistake, the TX-NR818 is a very capable amp for the money, but the bar hasn’t been raised to quite the same new heights as last year. Rival machines are waiting in the wings, so we’ll be interested to see how they stack up against this Onkyo in...

Onkyo TX-NR818 Review

 

The Onkyo TX-NR818 is a powerful AV receiver, with some impressive options

Consumer review by: N/A (newegg.com)

almost perfect

 

Still an exceptional product.... just wish that it could have internal circuitry to convert digital signals down to analog as well considering it is necessary for some external functions.

Upconvert, power, clarity, input sectability, etc

Main issue I have come across has to do with down conversion and outsourcing to tertiary receivers. No optical out, and zones 2 and 3 only output line OR powered if there is an analog audio connection on that input. You can sort of trick it by...

ONKYO TX-NR818

 

I purchased the Onkyo TX NR818 due to its mass amounts of features it has at this sale price. I dare you to find another receiver at this price with something even close to these specs. Setting and configuring up is a breeze using the onscreen guide. I...

24fps bug is fixed, no more stuttering. Excellent receiver.

 

Just an upddate to the review I made before where I complained about image picture stuttering - Onkyo finally released a firmware update and fixed it. Apparently receiver was switching to a strange 24 fps mode instead of 23.976 (anytime you reffer to...

Great upgrade !

 

After many years of great service, on two different continents, shipped around and bounced around (and even dropped once- H A R D !), my Onkyo 805 finally failed - HDMI card died. I had a choice: Pay the $$$ to repair the HDMI card, or purchase a new...

Delivers fantastic clean low end ; Quiet cooling fans ; Seven HDMI connections ; great tools to fine-tune sound ; futureproof: 4000K and 3D

Only seven HDMI connections ; no S-Video connectors
