Pros: Features to $$$ benefits, 2 subwoofer pre-outs (7.2)

Cons: Will it last?

Bought this used locally from craigslist for $100 in "as new" condition, all accessories, manuals and box - really like brand new. At $1.11 per watt, it was a GREAT bargain. It worked mostly fine for the first month, but lately the video signal cuts out to my projector through the HDMI connection - this may not be the receiver, but rather the cable or line voltage drops which I am reading HDMI is sensitive to (something about losing the handshake between). All sources produce this same problem. Video cuts out after a few moments and screen goes to snow, then the pj displays a signal not recognized message, then the video comes back, and repeats. ALSO, pressing the video button (to change settings) has no effect, not sure why. Overall I like the receiver. Wish it did upscale to 1080p instead of just 1080i. I'm reading that the HDMI boards go out, as does the front display on this model. Knock on wood this one lasts. If not, will probably go back to Yamaha.

Pros: HDMI 1.3a, good power, Audyssey 2EQ, 630 watts

Cons: Lacks internal cooling fan

This is my first Onkyo amp, and my first HDMI equipt amp also. Works great for me. Almost every Input is filled with a HDMI device (this amp made me a true believer in the greatness of HDMI). Antec Veris cooler has been on it from day one ... turns pretty hot into "luke-warm". We run it about 6 hours a day, everyday (TV speakers are never used). Nowdays, it's running a full set of full-size Polk Audio Series II speakers.

 

Maybe one day I'll finally install some speakers on the deck and put Zone-2 functionality to use.

 

I'm a function over form guy, but I love the full metal face and the visible badges (tech logos). Comparable 2009 Pioneer back then had neither.

 

My next amp will also be an Onkyo. Just helped my brother buy and install a Onkyo 609 in his den, and a Onkyo 3D-HDMI HTiB before that (for small bedroom).
