Pros: WIFI plus and Bluetooth a must. Huge power able to handle any speaker
Cons: huge and bulky. remote needs back light
WIFI plus and Bluetooth a must. Onkyo seems to have all the bell and whistles. I had a TX-SR805 for 6 years and only bought that receiver because I had a Yamaha and Harmon Kardon that did not live up to the power to handle my speakers. I loved the Kardon clear un-distorted sound. It just couldn't power my Klipsch sound system. I have had this receiver for about a month and love it. It has 130 watts per channel of TRUE power. The bass delivered via this Onkyo 828 is the best. I love the on screen display very user friendly. The Wifi and bluetooth was a great add-on for this receiver. I give this receiver two thumbs up.
