"A great receiver with loads of features."5.0 starson by philwilks
Pros: This is a superb receiver and excellent value. I love the networking features and the vast array of connectivity options. It drives my DALI Zensor speaker system beautifully and with ease - I rarely have it above 55%.
Cons: Very few. The networking interface looks aged and isn't easy to use without the mobile app. Zone 2 connectors are low quality. Other buyers have reported HDMI issues.
Summary: I am extremely pleased with this receiver. It is a perfect replacement for my old Yamaha RDX630 which served me for many years.
It provides more than enough power for my DALI Zensor speakers, driving them with ease and beautiful clarity. The Audessy EQ setup was easy and effective, and a USB key was supplied containing the latest software release along with clear instructions as how to install it.
The networking features are excellent, although the interface is dated and awkward to use with the factory remote. Download the Onkyo mobile app and the experience changes completely. It's far easier to use and delivers a much more enjoyable networking experience.
I have not experienced any of the quality issues regarding power output or HDMI that have been mentioned in other reviews, but I too have seen a large number of complaints on forums.
However, based on my own experience I'd highly recommend this receiver - It's amazing value for money and performs brilliantly.
