Onkyo TX-NR818 - Best Combination of features at a moderate price Edit
by bclarkeva Combined Rating: 4.5
Bought this receiver last Black Friday (2012) replacing a Denon 3803. I wanted a bit more than the Denon's 110 WPC, and HDMI, and Audessy XT32. Paid about $699 which was a great deal. Using it...
Pros Cons
  • High Power, 7.1, Audessy, HDMI
  • non-intuitive manual, non-backlighted remote
Bought this receiver last Black Friday (2012) replacing a Denon 3803. I wanted a bit more than the Denon's 110 WPC, and HDMI, and Audessy XT32. Paid about $699 which was a great deal. Using it in 6.1 configuration with Legacy Signature 3s and Silver Screen center, and Celestion 100s in the back.

This was one of the best buys I've made over several years in the home theater hobby. Everything works well on this unit - though to figure out how best to use it I've spent a lot of time on AVS Forums and other sources as the manual is not clearly laid out. It tells you everything you can do with the unit but it doesn't tell you why you would want to use one setting over another.

I do with the remote had backlighting on the keys - hard to use in low light.

Overall I'm very pleased with it.
