Receivers & Amplifiers
“I purchased a refurbished unit from the Harmon Kardon store on Ebay. That was probably a good thing as these receivers had a defect with the HDMI boards. There was a service bulletin out for it and all the refurbished units after a certain date had it. The I purchased is good to go. I don't use this thing for video processing as my near top of the line 60 inch Sony does a great job of...” --cwhite4455
“I have owned this receiver for about three years. It is a real workhorse. It has performed every task I have thrown at it. This AV receiver has: 7.2 channel sound 7x 90 watts YPAO room equalization Optional iPOD and Bluetooth capability 4 HDMI inputs plus many audio inputs 1080p up scaling capability Setup is pretty straight forward. Connect all of the speakers and then all of the inputs. I am...” --dschlic1
“I've had this AMP for 3 years now and I absolutely love it. It produces beautiful sound and decodes everything that I throw at it from simple Dolby Stereo to DTS-MA 7.1 and everything in between. My setup is a a full 7.1 setup and I push this thing to its limits with high action packed movies and it performs like a champ. It does occasionally cut out and go into HDMI handshake in the middle...” --jboo43
“I've had this receiver for a few years now and I can say I've been pleased with it. It replaced a Adcom GTP-740 and Kenwood KMZ1. Still using the Kenwood LS-X1F LCR's and LS-X1S plus SW-X1 for my speaker setup. I don't have speakers for side surround which won't allow for auto setup. That's not a big deal since I have a pretty good knowledge of time-delay and the like from my car-audio...” --allnpt0
“I picked this up from my father, to run the radio during Washington Redskins games and play all my old console games. Since the NES/SNES/Genesis etc. don't have HD, it makes a great media switcher. Great unit for all those old VHS tapes.” --89GLH
With new features to make a brilliant-sounding package even better, now's the time to update to an Onkyo home theater. InstaPrevue technology - a system that makes content selection easy - is one such Upgrade to the receiver, along with an HDMI-enabled GUI featuring overlaid menus for fast in-program adjustment. Uncommonly good Audio and Video Processing is complemented with Connectivity...
“Home theater upgrades are often an adult "Christmas", usually ending up in a lot of time peering over manuals, tweaking settings, and ignoring "eye-rolls" from your spouse wondering what the big deal is. Few upgrades mean as much to videophiles quite like a receiver upgrade since they affect so much of the total system's performance. But like many of us, receiver upgrades are rare due to...” --Sevenfeet
7.2 Channel Network Ready AV Receiver featuring, class D3 amplification, AirPlay, Pandora, iPhone and ipad Certified, and Multi-Zone AV.
“I don't need much in an AVR. I need it to route AV signals from my components to my TV over HDMI. I need it to connect to my home LAN so that I can control it over IP using the Roomie iPhone App. I need it to make good-sounding noise come out of my 7.1 speakers. And I need it to not bug me. By these standards, and considering the blockbuster price I paid for it, I'm thrilled. There's one thing...” --spblat
“This AVR is relatively easy to setup using the on screen GUI for the Audyssey MultEQ XT32 auto EQ program which can EQ up to 11 speakers (playing up to 9 at a time with an external 2CH amp) and 2 or more subwoofers. With dual processors (as opposed to only 1 on the lower Denon models), I can run an entire 7.2 setup Audyssey EQ in about 12 minutes from start to finish. As the majority of...” --jdsmoothie
