"Quality for the money! Better than Elite!"5.0 starson by bpseal
Pros: Great build quality and workmanship. Excellent sound production and video processing. Nicely equipped sound calibration microphone with great processing power. Nice on screen menu that isn't over done.
Cons: Might be heavy for some, not enough HDMI ports,
Summary: I have now had Yamaha, Denon and Pioneer Elite receivers and my judgement overwhelming concludes that the Onkyo 805 is best for the buck. It not only gives you great sound and processing power, but gives you a clean look to your home theater set-up as well as perform better than higher priced models out there. It beats back the Pioneer Elite VSX-82TXS or 94TXH back with a stick. I would recommend any future home theater enthusiast to try the Onkyo and shoponkyo.com to get the best deals.
