I bought the Onkyo 616 but due to problems with the unit I'm thinking I should return it before the 30 days are up. The biggest issue is that I have to unplug the power and plug it back in to get picture from the receiver.
Like others, I was sold on the Onkyo due to the price range and features.
Powered Zone 2 for patio speakers and possible a pre-out for zone 3 for bedrooms (not decided on this part yet but maybe)
I don't have an iPhone so I hoped to get something I could use my Android on without having to physically plug it in.
I currently only have 5.1 speaker setup for my primary viewing area but would like 7.2 for future upgradability.
Good sound of course
A remote that controls the TV & Cable box
My budget has flexibility up to $1000 but I would prefer to keep it below $800. The 616 was below $500 but it seems it was too good to be true. I like listening to Slacker radio so I hoped to use it through my Android. Maybe I should bite the bullet and get an iPod. Thanks ahead of time for any input. If Onkyo would get their unit to working right I would be happy.
