    Not what I expected....

    I picked this up to replace the Sony 5.2 DH550 that I had for a few days. Personally the Sony had a volume scale of 0-73, between 30-60 there was little noticeable volume increase till about 60. Anyways, I figured I would step up the game a little bit and try this Onkyo. I read the reviews from various websites and it seemed to be a 50/50 mix on the good and the bad of this stereo. The specifications didn't seem that bad either..... I brought it home, hooked it up and I was even able to hook up my wife's older WII as this unit has the RGB component connections! I went through the basic setup procedure following the prompts. I used the microphone for the sound calibration and once everything was setup and ready to go I started checking things out. My PS4 was working, my media center, then I switched to the component connection for the WII. The WII main page popped up, then it went blank like the WII was disconnected. I checked all connections and everything seemed fine. So I disconnected the WII and reconnected it to my TV and now it does not put out any video. I reset the WII, replaced the CMOS battery on the WII and nothing fixed the problem. So now the WII won't put out any video anymore. So I would recommend being cautious about hooking up any RGB devices. The sound quality was my biggest concern though as I would have assumed that the higher priced model stereo would make better sound quality, yeah I should have known that wasn't true. As mentioned above, I went through the setup wizard to configure the speakers like I did with the Sony I previously picked up. Now it's time to see how this receiver sounds. Keep in mind I'm using large speakers and there rated at 8ohms. I cranked the volume up slowly while listening to the sound quality. When I got to 50-75% volume the sound was starting to distort already. The sound quality was getting bad, the bass response was getting worse. When I was just about to 90% volume I just turned it down. My wife on the second floor of my home heard how bad the speakers were distorting. She stated they sounded horrible and the cheaper Sony sounded a heck of a lot better. I manually changed various settings from DB increase and decrease, EQ settings, Surround settings, etc..etc... Nothing seemed to help the fact that the louder I increased the volume, even if it was at 50%, the sound quality was horrible. I would definitely take the Sony DH550 over this receiver any day based on the quality of the sound. Note: I understand that the louder the volume is increased chances are the sound quality may diminish, but the Sony DH550's sound quality was better in my case

    An outstanding receiver - not just "for the money"

    I am a pretty discerning audiophile, but when my Yamaha receiver recently went out after a few years, I didn't have bottomless pockets to put into a replacement due to having just purchased a Sony 4K TV a couple of months ago. So when I needed a replacement, it was back to the drawing board because I knew I wouldn't be able to afford what I REALLY wanted, which was a Yamaha in the $1,000 range. I also have a ton of components to connect through HDMI so a puny 4 HDMI inputs was not going to do it, which is what I saw from most of the receivers in this range. So started looking online for reviews and it seemed I read a lot of reviews about the recent ONKYO line that indicated it had great sound and lots of inputs. So I decided to take a jump at it. Lo and behold, upon getting this thing set up in my home, I was blown away. I don't know where a lot of the people on here are getting on saying this thing has mediocre audio, no way. After calibrating this thing using the included mic and tweaking a couple of things like dialing down the sub setting and some VERY minor EQ fiddling (my room is a bit oddly shaped), I couldn't believe the clarity, depth, and warmth in the sound this unit offers. I'm thinking people just don't know how to set up this kind of unit properly or encountered some kind of issue with the sound calibration, because I don't see how anyone with an ear for audio could say this unit has sub-par sound. It also includes a ton of features. Someone also put in a review "the built-in Chromecast is a joke"... OK. What does that even mean. It works extremely well, has a quicker connection time than the one built into my TV and it does exactly what it is supposed to. After all that, I have enough inputs to connect all of the devices I need without an issue or having to connect a hub or anything like that. It even has component inputs - two of them! - which allowed me to connect my PS2 and Wii directly into my receiver without having to mess with the TV. Very nice. I highly recommend this unit. It's definitely a "bang-for-the-buck" unit where the sacrifices do not include sound quality. Perhaps the only things I don't like about this unit are that for some reason, as others are saying, it does have an odd "very low sound until 40" issue, but then after that, it seems to grow exponentially. I think this is largely because it's not doing its volume on a true 0-100 scale, but rather is using the traditional -/+db scale masked with the 0-100 scale. And for some inexplicable reason there is no option to switch the volume to -/+db. Also, there is no Dolby Pro Logic II decoder, which I find odd but am learning that it is becoming more common in newer receivers to not include. There are some, though, that continue to include this such as Yamaha and Sony, so I found it strange. This means that I cannot use surround in some older video games on PS2 and Wii that support Pro-Logic II surround, and am relegated to using those older games in stereo. I also had a problem using the Nintendo Wii in 480p with component cables. I had to reduce the resolution to 480i to get it to work. I'm thinking this is an issue with the way the Wii outputs its video rather than with the receiver itself, since I had no such problem with the PS2, but it was still a minor annoyance. However, I don't think the value in a modern receiver should be in its support of aging codecs and consoles, and therefore I am not letting these issues degrade from my overall score here. This is an enormous buy with excellent sound, a ton of included apps and capability, and a bevy of inputs. I'm quite happy and it will make the wait until I can purchase a beefier receiver down the line far from urgent.

    Degrades Video image, needs video bypass setting

    Posted
    Beast

    I currently own Onkyo TX-NR636 and really like the sound but it does not pass through HDR so I'm looking for an upgrade that does. I tried the Yamaha TSR-7810 (same as RX-V781BL), sound was decent, not as good as Onkyo TX-NR636, but it only passed through HDR at 30 fps not the advertised 60 fps and yes I did try the fix of switching the video mode setting from default mode 2 to mode 1, that is supposed to pass through HDR at 60 fps - it didn't. So then I tried the new Sony STR-DN1070, it sounded hollow compared to my Onkyo, and it did not pass through HDR at 60 fps, even though it claims it will. Then I tried the all new Onkyo TX-NR676, sound was good, comparable to my current TX-NR636, but its not ready, its processing of video degrades the image. They don’t have a download available for advanced manual, only the basic. I updated the firmware to latest available (did that with all others too). There is no video setting to choose to pass through and not try to upscale or process the video in the receiver but leave it to the TV. If you have a good TV then the TV does this processing better. The older TX-NR636 has that option but they haven't yet got around to making it available to the TX-NR676. I wouldn't mind if it was not having a significant negative impact on all my video sources, even my 4k sources were not looking as good as they did on the older TX-NR636 that did allow bypassing video processing at the receiver. An AV receiver has two primary goals, sound good and not degrade the video, but the Onkyo TX-NR676 receiver currently fails on the latter. I would pass on this receiver until they have a newer firmware that gives this option and its documented as such in an advanced manual download from Onkyo site.

    I unfortunately, exchanged the first one I bought because I thought it wasn't working right; I called Onkyo 3 times and the end result was they said it must not be working right, that the video was bleeding through one input to the next. So I returned it. Turns out there was nothing wrong with it, I just didn't understand the functioning of the remote and how it switched from one input to the next, and to the TV. You can't switch directly from one of the HDMI inputs to the TV channels, you have to change to the TV input (I use the TV antenna) using the TV input selections. The TV video signal isn't sent through the ARC HDMI cable, only the audio is. And the TV button on the remote isn't for your main TV, it's for a secondary TV plugged into the AV receiver, which I don't have. So after fooling around with the second unit, getting the same symptoms as the first time, I realized what was going on. Too bad the support people at ONKYO never figured out what I was explaining to them - it would have prevented an unnecessary exchange. I can't imagine I'm the first person to have a similar experience setting this up for the first time; they should be better prepared to help people with what I think is a common situation. After all that, it's a nice unit, what you would expect. No complaints there.

    Fine receiver brings out the best in your media

    This is my third Onkyo receiver. It is connected to a quality 5 speaker (PSB) setup. I play records, CD's, DVD's, I have digital media and the usual streaming sources (Netflix, PBS through Roku, Spotify and Google Play Music through Chromecast). For every source, this Onkyo brings out the best in the sounds and video. I spent some time getting to know the receiver, downloading the firmware update, and calibrating the audio with the included microphone and this really paid off. The fact that a 1980's record or a recent Blue-Ray with DTS audio all sound so good is a sign of the design quality of this receiver. The receiver's modern Wi-Fi features makes it unnecessary to use Ethernet, as was required for the previous Onkyo. Switching between HDMI sources is effortless and quick and it is more tolerant in handling different HDMI sources than others. The remote is much simplified but a wide variety of settings is still available. Power is generous and the receiver has no problems with 6-Ohm speakers. If you have 5 or more quality passive speakers and are willing to perform the setup, this receiver is in an very sweet spot in terms of quality, capabilities and value.

    Lots of features for the price

    Tons of features and sound options. The setup took several hours of fiddling and testing but was relatively easy. I'm pretty impressed by the sound, but this is my first 4K receiver so I really don't have anything to compare it to besides the ancient Kenwood that it replaced. My only issues so far: A/V sound desync is a constant problem for me when it comes to watching stuff online, and the desync modifier doesn't seem to do much but exacerbate the problem. I'm going to assume that my sluggish internet is to blame for the desyncing; it bothers me that manually adjusting it does nothing to resolve the issue. Also, I'm getting a lot of clicking and popping during playback -- I haven't been able to find a solution yet, but the fact that it started a couple weeks after I purchased this receiver has me concerned that internal parts may already be failing. A great receiver otherwise, but I wouldn't suggest paying full price for it.

    I Really Wanted This Receiver to Work, But....

    This receiver had everything I wanted - 4k, 7.2 channels, Bluetooth, wi-fi, and 7 HDMI inputs! However, with my current home theater set-up and my LG 4K TV, I could not get the video to work consistently on the Satellite/Cable input. I went through a significant amount of troubleshooting - I replaced EVERY HDMI cable, even replaced the receiver with the same model, factory reset EVERY device that connected to the receiver, updated all firmware, etc. Eventually, I gave up and purchased a Yamaha receiver just to see if there would be the same issue. There was not. The Yamaha worked on every input, although it has much fewer options than the Onkyo. I chalked it up to just a compatibility issue with my system (hence the four stars) and have no grudges against Onkyo.

    “Upgraded” for 4K

    I upgraded from a Yamaha A1010 that was fantastic for sound quality, but would not allow 4K pass through. This Onkyo receiver causes a popping sound in my speakers when my mini-fridge compressor turns on/off. It is annoying. The Yamaha A1010 did not do this, and the only change made was the receiver. I tried A/C line filter surge protectors on all outlets, but they have not helped. Looks like I will have to add another breaker (hope this helps). I should have known there would be issues, since a Yamaha A1010 price for a used model, is still more than the Onkyo price brand new. Other than that, everything else seems fine...
