My house has built in surround sound and speakers in every room. When my old receiver went out I wasn't sure what to get. The old receiver was an Onkyo so I decided to stick with what had worked before. Being a novce, I couldn't believe how easy it was to hook it up. The sound quality is excellent. I also have all of the video going thru the receiver and the HD quality it great. With everything going thru the receiver it makes it all very convienient. Can't go wrong with this receiver, great price, easy hook up, great sound and video quality, and so easy to use. I would defintely recommend this receiver.

With all of the traditional high end brands switching to cheap parts these days it was nice to see that Onkyo still makes quality receivers. The HDMI ports make for a fast set up for newer components but keep in mind if you have older electronics you may have to purchase seperate adapters. For example my sub uses traditional RCA jacks (2 audio outlets) and the receiver only has 1 outlet but the adapter works great. Also I could not run my old PS2 through the receiver with the high resolution jacks (pre-HDMI) for what ever reason. I doubt there are many people still using their PS2 as much as their PS3 so overall this a great product for the price.

I got this receiver to replace a Technics 930 receiver, which had no issues. When I upgraded my tv to a large HiDef set, I wanted a receiver that I could use as an hdmi switcher to match to it. I've read some of the other reviews of this receiver and must say that the receiver itself pushes enough power to deliver, but you've got to use at least passable speakers to go with it. I use Technics SB-T200's as my mains and sats, and a Technics SB-HTS250 as my center channel, along with a Sony 12" sub. It's expansive, room-filling sound. For the price, this is an excellent buy. Setup was easy, and the on-screen menus were intuitive and easy to follow. Even if you're not an audiophile, you won't have any real issues setting this up.

Very affordable, hook up is an ease right out of the box, has all inputs and outputs that I was looking for, sound quality definitely exceeds my expectations, specifications on receiver match up to specs on my speakers (not included) so all works well. One thing is that you must have a powered sub to use this receiver otherwise you'll have to use the front speaker output to power a sub. It would also be a plus if the receiver had a built-in cooling fan. Overall, a great quality product for a low, low price!

While I probably would not have chosen this receiver at the regular list price, the sale price at Walmart made it a great value. This is an entry level unit with reasonable power but is perfect for my apt because Im not pushing a lot of high powered speakers, but easily handles my 5:1 setup. It would be a good bedroom unit as well. The manual supplied on the disk is thorough and detailed---perhaps too detailed. Would have been better if it was easier to find what you need instead of having search into several different areas. However, with a little patience it was up and running in less time than I expected. Speaker hookups and equipment such as my blu ray were installed in no time. There are three things I love about this--the head phone jack is easily accessible, it is audio sound reversible, and the USB input allows me to use this in many additional ways. Buy it!!!!

If this is still priced at one hundred sevety eight dollars you should jump on it. It does not have networking capability so if you are need to connect to a media hub you will have to use a blu ray player with networking functions, but for this price you will not find a better value for what you get.

Unless you're trying to shatter windows with volume, this unit does a very good job. Of course, a good set of speakers is required to get good sound (with any amp.). It has ample HDMI inputs and is easy to set up. Took me about 20 minutes and I had the HDTV, DVR, and 2 Blu-Ray players connected to a 5.1 system. I doubt you can beat it for the price.

I am very happy with this purchase. The set-up was easier than I expected. I decided to use the optical sound for my DVD player and cable box. I use it for sporting events and movies. My room is 20X14 and the sound is spectacular!!! Love the FM radio to listen to my local sports announcers during the game!!! I also love the easy access to hook up my Iphone in the front panel!!! I mostly don't do these reviews, but I enjoy this so much!!! It's a great buy!!! Highly reccomend!!!!

Easy to set up and so far its been working as expected. I have a very small living room and I did not want or need a high powered high end receiver for my surround sound. This has plenty of HDMI hook ups on back and works great. Only down side is it has no hookups for a subwoofer that hooks up with speaker wire. It only accepts a powered subwoofer. It would have been nice if it accepted both and my speakers that I was using from my old surround sound did not have a powered sub so $100 later and a trip to wal-mart again I finally got my surround sound working again.
