I don't doubt doing this will greatly reduce the risk of failure, but expecting everyday consumers to do this is too much. If Onkyo only sold high end products at high end stores, that would be one...

How do they define the actual seller? If it's who you pay or whose name in on the invoice then the seller would be amazon.

I asked a few weeks back if the legs can be removed and was told they can be. So you can always take the back legs off and put something like checkers or a large bottle cap on each side where you...

I would be shocked if they didn't honor a warranty for a product ordered from Amazon. Regardless of who does the actual fulfillment. It would be a PR nightmare.

They have 1 left.

My heart wants one, but my brain is telling me to wait and see what the Denon 6200 has to offer. Stupid brain.

You used a dremel for that? You must have steady hands. I would have drilled holes in the corners and used something like a drywall saw.

I just ran 4 atmos wires and have to agree. Running the wires wasn't the problem. It's repairing the drywall. I admit I'm terrible at drywall repair. No matter how many youtube videos I watch, I just...

I agree. The 7200 isn't worth an extra grand. Maybe $200 extra. The big selling point for the 7200 was it could be upgraded to hdmi 2.0a and DTS:X. It was a good selling point last year, but now that...

I would get the Denon 7200wa (Get the wa model. Not the a model) or wait a month or so and get the Yamaha 3050.

Onkyo's give you the most features for the $, but they're the most unreliable. At least that's the impression I get from reading this forum and from owning one that had a bad HDMI board. I think they...

Yes, but a 300 watt PSU will be able to deliver more peak power than a 200 watt PSU.

Most receivers don't have manual eq because the purpose of eq is to create a smooth response across all frequencies and they have automated systems that do this now.

If dts:x will work with any layout as they claim, then you should go with a recommended Atmos layout as that will work for both.

I question their claim about any layout as in order for it to be...

If you're going to use 11 channels, then you have to get an amp. If not, try out the receiver and see if it works. If it doesn't, then you can always buy an external amp later.

Of course not, but a receiver cannot deliver more power to the speakers than the PSU can deliver, so the PSU power puts a cap on how much power the receiver can deliver. Generally speaking, the best...

I don't think there's an error protection protocol. Things like file transfers use a checksum to make sure everything arrived OK, but I don't see how that would work with a live stream.

There are many factors. That's why I prefaced my statement with all things being equal.

The 7200 is a better receiver IMO, but getting the 2.0a upgrade sounds like a huge PITA. I think the 7200wa models already have the 2.0a upgrade so maybe look for one of those instead.
