                For the price, you'd be hard pushed to find another receiver with as many first-class features as the TX-NR616. Features like THX certification, video upscaling, networking and much more. Unfortunately, expecting them to all work is more of a challenge.

                I fell in love with the 616 as soon as I saw it and what it could do. I was mis-informed by the salesman that I could upconvert to 4k and get a great picture out of my Mitsubishi 65" DLP (1080p) TV, which of course, is not true, but the ...

                  I bought the 616 in the spring of 2013. The bad press from the early firmware issues drove the price down but all of the firmware issues leading to many of the malfunctions were corrected. In short us late buyers got perfectly functioning units at severely depressed prices. I designed my entire Whole House Audio around the 616. It works perfectly in every respect. I wished I had a need for a second one. Having been using it for two months, I can not find fault with it given its use for my main ...

                    Judging from the early reviews, it appears this unit has seen its fair share of issues at introduction. Firmware updates seem to have completely solved any of the early reported issues, as I have yet to experience any video or audio glitches at all. What really makes the TX-NR616 stand out as a bargain now, is the price. It now sits at a near-entry level price for a THX certified receiver with excellent options typically found at nearly twice this price.

                      The Onkyo TX-NR616 is a 115W 7.2 channel THX Select2 certified network A/V receiver. It features Audyssey 2EQ room calibration, ARC, cloud audio streaming, internet radio and a remote app for iOS and android devices. It includes 8 HDMI inputs and 2 outputs with Qdeo 4K upscaling. I purchased the TX-NR616 to replace a 5 year old Onkyo TX-SR575 without HDMI audio support. After applying the latest firmware straight out of the box via USB everything is working as intended. I haven’t had any of t...

                        I had the receiver for 14 months and the HDMI switching board went out.  I was warned about the problems after I bought the unit.  If you buy it, get a extended warranty, if you own it, find a extended warranty.


                        My warranty sent me a refund check back, as it was $325 to fix it, and I only paid $299 for it.
