Looking to upgrade my surround reciever, I currently use a Yamaha htr-5740. I have Infinity primus setup with 250 mains, c25 center and 150 surrounds and a Def tech Supercube 1 sub. I love my yamaha but have always heard Onkyo is great also. Help me decide between the two, the Yamaha rx-v675 or the Onkyo tx-nr626.

The Onkyo has better room correction IMO, but Yamaha receivers always prove reliable. Any reason Denon isn't in the running? The 2113 or its replacement, the X1000, use Audyssey MultEQ XT and prove reliable as well.

Yup check them out and I would want the x2000 as I already have a 7.1 speaker setup. The x2000 runs about $100 more than I want to spend.

Keep your eyes open for a sale, the X2000 was going for $499 this past weekend at Paul's TV. (That's the model I'm very much favouring as well, and damnit, I missed that sale not knowing it ended Sunday night.)

I know it's easy to say when it's not my money, but better to spend a little bit extra and get something you WANT, as opposed to saving a little bit and getting something you may or may not be satisfied with.

Hi, any input on the original comparison request? I'm looking for Wi-Fi, bluetooth support and powered 2nd room support in the $500 price range. It looks like the Denon does not support Wi-Fi and bluetooth so it's not in the running for me. I also liked the STR DN840, but that does not support POWERED 2nd room.

I like the Onkyo as it has built in wi-fi and Spotify support (which I use often). But it doesn't have a front HDMI port (which is very annoying to me) and doesn't have Airplay support (though I probably wouldn't use this often and could get an AppleTV to support).

Any other features/issues/comparisons to note between these two? Thanks!

John

My dad has an older Integra DTR-6.1 he is going to replace with the TX-NR626. We tried out an Onkyo TX-SR608 this weekend. It sounded really good, but it had a problem passing through HDMI from a Sony Blu-ray player so it went back. We also picked up the Yamaha V675. Compared with the old Integra or the Onkyo, I was very unimpressed by the sound. It lacked depth and had a sort of muted quality to it. This was after running the YPAO setup. It could be that the EQ settings out of the box need adjustment. I'm not sure. This was with matching Infinity Alpha mains and center channel and Def Tech 8" in-wall surrounds.

After the problems I had with my 707 and 616 HDMI failures I still like Onkyo, for the features, but not for the reliability. Of course this could just be unlucky me.

Could you explain what "the peq" is? I just purchased the Yamaha RX-V675 and noticed it doesn't have quite the same sound as my old Onkyo TX-NR708 did.

On that note (and the purpose of this thread), I can't comment on the TX-NR626, by I had my 708 for maybe three years. I loved it, but it died just before the warranty period was up so I sent it in to get serviced ($75 in shipping and more than a month without my receiver). Just last week it went up in a bright flash of light (I think a capacitor blew). After reading some feedback on the web about Onkyo reliability, I've switched to Yamaha for the time being. Hopefully this one lasts longer.

parametric equalizer...its explained in the manual. You can adjust the frequency response from 31-16khz on all speakers except the sub.
