I'll just chime in and say this is the last day for the refurb special from Onkyo. I bought the 616 and really love it. Although the www.shoponkyo.com site warns the device may have cosmetic issues, lack stickers, and batteries; mine came with everything and it sure seemed as good as new to me. IMHO it was even better since it already had the latest firmware update. 1 year factory warranty with an extended factory warranty for an additional $40 (I didn't bother...
I just setup my 616 today. I carefully made all my connections and turned it on (along with the TV). The screen guides you through the entire process. I believe it started with Adyssey (I did the full version), programmed remotes, and then completed setup. I skipped networking, because my wireless dongle won't arrive until late today. I then watched a blu-ray movie and enjoyed the sound! I believe I had read your settings might be lost after the update. At this point I...
I'll just say that my Onkyo 616 arrived in perfect condition and with the latest firmware update. Everything setup and working. Very pleased! In hindsight, I would have been more frustrated over buying...hard to beat for the price.
Well, I just got my 616 from Onkyo refurb this morning. It was in perfect condition and even had the stickers on the front and came with batteries (website warns this may not be the case). It also came with the latest 400 firmware. Setup went extremely smooth and I am very happy. Of course reading the PDF manual prior to arrival certainly helped! I ran the full Audyssey mode and it went off without a hitch. Afterwards I adjusted my subwoofer distance (which seemed about...

OK, are you saying you would do the Onkyo 809 over the Pioneer 1222 if they were the same price?
I just ordered an 616 refurb for a great price directly from Onkyo. However, I am getting cold feet and the order hasn't yet processed. Although I am trying to watch my budget, I don't want too many regrets. This will be replacing a Yamaha 663 that failed prematurely. I am using a 5.1 system and want the ability to run a second zone. I am an Android/Windows guy. - Pioneer SC-1222K: Price seems right and would mainly upgrade for reliability and intrigued by D3 amps. -...
They are exactly the same. Personally I chose the Canon HF-S100 since I believe it offers a better value...especially as memory card prices keep falling.
I have the problem occasionally. Every few months are so...I have always chalked it up to the order in which things may be turning on/off. If it does happen, I turn everything off, then back on, and it goes away. - Harmony remote - PS3 - V663 - Sharp 52" LCD - Panamax Power Conditioner - Scientific Atlanta Cable Box from Comcast Only HMDI connections
