Onkyo TX-NR414: A great AV receiver for $280?

 

Onkyo's budget TX-NR414 offers six HDMI inputs and extensive networking features for under $300. Is there any reason to spend more?

The ; 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, inexpensive USB...

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 TX-NR414 review

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.

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...

Onkyo TX-NR414 A/V Receiver

 

This time, I'm taking a look at the $499 Onkyo TX-NR414 5.1-channel network A/V receiver, a new 400 Series model added to the company's lineup for 2012. THX-Select certification still starts with the 600 Series in the TX-NR616, which now carries a...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

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 + Remote control unit is clear + Numerous HDMI inputs + Automatic firmware updates + Set up was easy

- AUX input in front - No phono input

Consumer review (newegg.com)

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
