elmer 1024/ u should be extreamly happy with 705. i wouldnt have any doubts about that purchase, especially at that price. it is a wonderful receiver. setup is easy, i could do it, and i recently just learned to set the time on my alarm clock! sound is awesome, nothing else out there that compares and the price- remember 705 is just barely step below 805 they list about 1k.

For the price I paid its a no-brainer. Jump on it.


Good to see mrgribbles on board with the 705, and his in-depth knowledge with the 605.

Finally got my 705 Friday. I won't be much help for reviews since I sold my old surround speakers and I'm upgrading, right now I'm only running a 2.1 setup. There is a light pop when the AVR is changing inputs or audio signals, my older Adcom amps may be the cause of this and thanks to a forum member I can fix this by adding a decoupling cap on the input. The Onkyo 705 does seem a little bright with slightly dead middle tones, what this does though is make for good separation, surround and voice clarity, but not so good for serious music listening. I was able to correct this somewhat with Onkyos excellent manual speaker adjustments. And yes this baby does run hot. I don't see this as a problem as long as you leave plenty of space above the AVR and allow for natural air flow.

Hi again

I was going to buy the 805 on line for 899.00 at Vans but for the price at CC is was a no brainer , and it was easier to convice my wife.
It shoudl go well with my chorus , focal speakers and FX monitor audio rears .
For a little less power and saving 250 less the 705 seemed like the right choice for me

I just CC again for the status on my order and the 705 is at $749.00 .

I wonder why they change the price so much in 48 hr period ?

Keep up the good review on the 705

Probably because they didn't have a 7.1 setup. If the back surrounds aren't there or aren't configured then you get PLII, no X.

PLIIx works fine. I'm settling in with the Neural THX 7.1 meself. Very interesting.

Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.

Yes i did receive my 705 and opened that baby up. Now THAT is a manly feeling remote. Alas, i have no info yet about it other than that as my speakers don't arrive until tomorrow. Also basement is due to be finished with remodel on wednesday and working basically all day and until late thurs so won't really be able to set up well until weekend. may have something by wed evening though.

oh and i ended up getting the 170s for surround - i'll be running a 5.1 set up. I currently have an old polk psw350 for my sub which will continue until christmas or so i imagine. then am debating between the Hsu VTF3 MKIII and the SVS PB12 NSD. actually somehow already got the ok from the "boss" for this for that time amazingly enough. I'll update with info once I get it set up.

Well, I missed the CC deal of the decade. Ouch. I'll be looking for sales and coupons for a while I guess until they become cheap again. If anyone sees it for a deal again, please let me know.

For those of you with Harmony/universal remotes. I just programmed my 659 without a problem, the only command i had to teach it was the Cbl/Satellite input.
Everything else i tried works without having to teach it, pure audio, all channel stereo(i prefer this for 2 channel music), THX, surround mode. I just wish there was a button that turned neural 7.1 on without having to scroll through surround modes as so far this is my favorite source for matrixing 5.1 -> 7.1.

This is a very cool feature! So when I am watching DirecTv the display reads:
DVR HR20 which I put in there. And when I am watching the HD-A2 is says: HD-DVD.

Of course you can't make is say: DD TrueHD

For those of you who use the 705 with a Toshiba 2nd generation HD player here are some tips from the 805 thread on how to set up the HDMI:

"Toshiba HD-A2 and the 705/ 805, make sure you set HDMI MONITOR to ON, and HDMI AUDIO to OFF; on the A2, make sure you set Audio to BITSTREAM=PCM and HDMI=PCM (or, preferably, HDMI=AUTO if you're also planning on playing SD DVDs...this way it will pass the standard Dolby Digital and DTS bitstreams of SD DVDs while passing the high-res audio tracks via PCM on HD DVDs without having to always manually change it). These settings seem to be the most common oversights with 805 owners. Congratulations on your new purchase! If using HDMI for audio you do want to set the optical output to PCM. As you discovered this is the only way to get the A2 to ouput 96k LPCM. Bizzare - yes - but that's the way it is."

(Sorry for all the posts in a row but I am catching up on few days worth.)

After using the 705 for a few days it is great!

SOUND:
Finally ran Audessey and it improved the sound quite a bit. Although the dialog still seemed muted. On my old AVR I had cracked up the center channel cause I hate having to strain to hear the voices over the background. So when I watched Sahara HD-DVD on the 705 I had to keep increasing the volume during dialog (friends were over for the movie) Later I manually set the center at -1 dB and then it was good and clear. Audessey had set the center to -5 dB and the fronts to -2 dB.

REMOTE:
I love the joystick in the middle- very easy to navigate when doing set up. Won't really need it cause I programmed my Harmony 659 to run the whole theater including X10 controls for the lights. I only saw a backlight on the "receiver" button but haven't played around to see if I can get all the buttons backlit.

POPPING:
NONE. But there is what I call a mechanical CLICK inside the 705 when changing inputs or On/Off. It is rather loud, at least much louder than my old AVR. It is a little annoying. I assume it is normal.
There is no popping coming out of the speakers if that is the popping people are talking about. It is silent in the speakers when changing inputs or DVD menus.

HEAT: No hotter than my old AVR. They need to give off heat so they don't burn up.

HANDSHAKE:
I have one issue with analog component upconvert to HDMI from my Polaroid DVD recorder to my Sanyo Z3 720p projector. I tried 480i/480p to 480p and 480i/480p to 720p but the Z3 wouldn't accept either one. I will just have to use components direct to the Z3. My other two sources use HDMI to HDMI for audio and video through the 705 without a problem.

IMPRESSION:
WOW. Letters from Iwo Jima sounds awesome such as when the planes fly over and drop bombs, machine guns everywhere...
Sahara- dialog was low till I increased the center channel.
The features and price for this unit are great. Learning curve.. there is a lot you can do and a lot to figure out. We can figure it out together.

Is the "705" too much for this type of in-wall speaker?
http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=300-282
Speaker Specifications: *Power handling: 50 watts RMS/100 watts max *Impedance: 8 ohms

I do not understand how to choose speakers for receivers.
I bought 6 of these speakers for front,rear(side), and back surrounds; thinking that I was ok, but, I may have to settle for the "605" if the 705 will "blow" them out.
Thanks for helping out a total speaker to receiver relationship novice.

Too much power is generally better than not enough power.

The 705 will be fine with those speakers. You will have plenty of amp headroom.

Good Review Tim Sly, many thanks.

You said, "HANDSHAKE:
I have one issue with analog component upconvert to HDMI from my Polaroid DVD recorder to my Sanyo Z3 720p projector. I tried 480i/480p to 480p and 480i/480p to 720p but the Z3 wouldn't accept either one. I will just have to use components direct to the Z3. My other two sources use HDMI to HDMI for audio and video through the 705 without a problem."

What are your ins & outs. I believe you are coming in component but how are you going out? If component or HDMI did you do the correct assignments in setup? It seems that every time I do this I have to cycle through the assignments a few times to get them matched correctly, but thats me I suppose. Shouldn't be a hand shake issue with component in & out.

Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.

Since I'm somewhat new to this thread, I thought I'd pass on some info from the 605 thread that should also apply to the 705.

In the 605 "New Onkyo 605 Owner":

Post 592 & 594 has info on video resolutions for Analog & HDMI ins & outs of the AVR and how to access the "Hidden Video Menu". There are also some work-arounds on how to set it up to use video processing or not when you choose SD material or HD material.

Post 2437 and down has info on how to update the 605/705 firmware via CD. Not that we'll ever see it, but good to know.

Post 2490 has some undocumented Button Combinations that you may find useful, or not.

705 owners may also find it useful to peruse or keep an eye on the 605 thread as these AVR's are very similar in operation and I would guess that much of what will be discussed here has already been hammered on over there.

Good luck and remember that if you break it you own it.

Some days it's hardly worth chewing through the restraints.

Just bought my 705 on CC's website $674 ... i wish i got it on sunday for the low low low price some of your guys managed to get. However, I am still happy with this price.

I also bought a set of KEF KHT 3005 5.1 surround speaker package... later in the month ill buy 2 more sats and finish the 7.1 effect. I think this should be a nice 1,2 combination for a sweet bedroom surround setup..... I think my living room is getting jealous

Going to pick up at 10am when they open. Wish me luck

I have just found this thread, and am another who has taken advantage of the CC price of $719 minus the $50 coupon on the 705. I picked up the unit from my local store but am leaving it the box for at least a couple of weeks, until I pick up my surround speakers purchased off Craigslist, but also in the hope that an even lower price may appear as the units reach retailers in greater numbers, since CC will match within 30 days.

However, this is my question. I was reading this morning about how all television must switch to digital in 2009. Is this significant to current receivers such as the 705, because my assumption is that the signal passing through my DirecTV HR-20 to my Samsung HD DLP TV is still analog. Thanks for any info or internet references.

Did you buy it before 8/12. If so CC should price match their advertised price on 8/12 of less than $550.

Edit; I could be wrong but I think the analog vs digital signal thing is already in place. Comcast Atlanta is 100% digital. I thought the 2009 thing had to do with SD vs HD? Maybe someone will square me away on this.

Your 705 should be fine no matter what signal you'll wind up dealing with.

Not sure when it was so cheap one day and the next back to $749.00

It should delivered be at my house on Wenesday.

I want to step up from my 603 to the 705 (mostly because I'm tired of fighting to EQ my SVS 20-39CS+ with a damn ART-351) and may snag one after work today, but I have a few questions:

1) Can you set front left and right at different distances? And does it allow for .5 increments or just whole feet? My right speaker is unavoidably 6 to 8 inches further away than the left, but the 603 only allows one setting for distance to mains.

2) Can the 705 matrix 5.1 from the analog multichannel inputs to 6.1 (like with DPL-IIx)? I'm running a Panny S97 for the occasional DVD-Audio disc.

3) Does analog multichannel get passed through equalization, crossover and delay? Wondering if I would turn off the delay times and crossover for DVD-Audio and let the receiver handle it, or just leave it as-is.

4) Does the Audyssey implementation on the 705 let you pick Flat for the EQ curve, or are you just stuck with Audyssey's rolloff of the highs? I read the user manual, but didn't see where you could choose like you can on other brands.

Any answers would be appreciated. Thanks!

I can't believe I missed that sale I was mad to myself because for everyday
I have been checking CC website I saw their 799.00 minus 80.00 plus another 50.00 that they have until saturday last week but I don't know why I did not check on Sunday morning and to make the matter worst I was awake since 7 am pst so I am sure if I open up my laptop I could have bought one already.

Stu--d me.
