Great Receiver
 
I just purchased the TX-NR905S to replace my old (7 years) but still fully functional Onkyo TX-DS989. The main reason was to get the advanced codecs. The unit performs flawlessly. I have not seen any of the audio delays people have discussed in different forums. The Reon HQV scaling makes watching my old SD DVD's a new experince. The Audyssey MultEQ XT auto setup helped fine tune my 7.1 system. At the price point the 905 is at you'll be hard pressed to find an equal.

The primary reasons for me choosing the TX-NR905s were:1. 4 HDMI 1.3a inputs and 2 HDMI 1.3a outputs2. video upconversion to 1080p3. usb port4. internet radio and hi-def radio built in5. ethernet port6. THX certificationIt's been great for me on all these points. I haven't noticed the time delay the others talk about. So far, the sound has been amazing perfect and right on queue with my video equipment.I haven't needed the firmware updates, but then, I JUST got it 2 weeks ago, so maybe the firmw...

WOW!!!
 
Crutchfield got my order on a Monday about 11:30am and this TX-NR905S was sitting in my living room by 2:00pm Wednesday. The black model picture is posted for some reason, but I must say the silver model is an awesome looking unit; very classy design. There is no model at this price point from any manufacturer that can compare to this model. Even the $4,000 Denon can't touch this model. THX and the newest HD processors means this unit will not be outdated too quickly.My only complain...

After a lot of research, I purchased the 905 last year. Onkyo had some production issues (strong demand) and so I waited MONTHS before one became available. On paper, the specs look very good.Ultimately, Onkyo bought-back my receiver from me because of several design flaws that firmware updates could not fix. For example, the DSPs are poorly designed such that there is a delay of 2-3 seconds when locking onto and audio stream. So every time I fast-forward through a commercial, the video plays fo...

A couple of years ago I bought a Denon 3805 for $1,000 - it was perfect for my needs at the time, but it didn't have HDMI.A couple of months ago I replaced my wonderful Denon with the Onkyo 905 - for $2,000. I didn't take this purchase lightly - after much research, I decided that the dual output, HDMI 1.3a, Reon HQV, and better DACs than my Denon would be just what I needed. On paper, the Onkyo was head and shoulders above everything else (in the price range) on the market.It isn't that great...

WOW!!! (continued)
 
I have looked for an HD DVD player that works with the trueHD on this Onkyo and can send digital signals through the HDMI interface. Currently, the Onkyo website says there is not one out there, but there is one and only one that I have found. I bought and returned HD DVD players for the last two months trying to get the trueHD to display on my Onkyo 905. The one HD DVD player that will do this is the Toshiba HD-A35. Enjoy!!!

Onkyo 905
 
If you use the 905 through the Reon processor it severely alters your black levels. The only way to get the black levels back on your display is to set the unit to through (with not Reon upconversion) and turn the OSD off.

Just sold my Denon 4306 and I can't believe how much better this is. The sound is smooth and natural and the OSD is a refreshing change.

The Onkyo TX-NR905 is the best receiver that I have ever owned. I replaced my previous Onkyo receiver which was a TX-DS989 and at the time was a excellent receiver. The setup could not have been simpler. I loved the on screen menu which was very intuitive, I did not have to open the manual. The most incredible feature is the Audessy speaker setup. I plugged in the included microphone and immediately the setup screen popped up and told me where to place the microphone and after about 20 min ...

Unbelievable!
 
It does upconvert the video but it's not going to transform your VCR tapes into a blue-ray picture. It does however make your standard DVDs look awesome! It does an ok job with my standard def satellite picture. It also gets very hot under normal operation. I've got a small fan sitting on top to solve that problem. You better have a sturdy shelf to support it too! You will however forget about these small negatives when you crank this up!! Super loud clear detailed sound like you've never...
