I'm a novice and I love this receiver
 
I won't go into details; I actually have not gone into much of what this receiver can do.I set this up in one evening with 5 HDMI sources and 1 Component source as well as set up the internet radio, AM/FM radio, DLNA connection to media on a home server, and the automatic tuning. All of this goes to a single HDMI (upconverted) out to a 46" TV. My set up is a 5.1 system at the moment.I almost had no problems installing the above and have connections to spare. I have not messed with any settings y...

Nice mid-level AVR
 
I've really been enjoying my 708. It runs cool enough to be fine inside my tv console with the door closed. Another thing I like is it comes with RIHD (disabled by default) which basically means it talks to my Samsung TV that also has RIHD. I can control the AVR volume with my tv remote. The TV automatically turns off it's own speakers and outputs sound to the 708 if the 708 is on. Otherwise, it just uses it's own speakers. Also, if I turn off my tv it automatically turns off the 708 for me.N...

Supurb Receiver
 
Synopsis: The TX-NR708 is a great value in this price range. It has THX Select 2, three 7.2 sound fields; they include 7.2 discrete HD/EX, Dolby z, and Audyssey DSX wide. There are connections for up to 11 speakers (excluding the 2 subs. Note that the 7.2 specification means that there are 2 preamp outs for 2 powered subwoofers). There are more than 50 listening modes to obtain the perfect sound for your room and source. For video processing, there are a total of 7 HDMI inputs (along with 2 comp...

Pound for pound - best mid-range receiver out there
 
Purchased this in July 2010. Crutchfield had it to my door in 3 days. Awesome. Anyway, what can I say about this receiver ---- very happy with my decision. I wouldn't say i'm a pure audiophile, but i would say i'm definitely more in-tune with home audio than the average consumer. This is replacing a 2004 onkyo receiver which worked great. it just wasn't able to decode any of the "next-gen" sound formats. so anyway, for a mid-range receiver, this has it all. The...

3D Interface with DirecTV NOW works
 
February 1, 2010 update: My HR-21 problem appears to have been corrected by a DirecTV software update. Today both DirecTV channel 103 and 106 work through the Onyko TX-NR708 HDMI connection.I bought this TX-NR708 to replace an excellent performing TX-SR804 to gain the new 3D capability with DirecTV's added 3D offerings. However, it will not pass the DirecTV's 3D HDMI output to my new Panasonic TC-PX65VT25 Plamsa. If I connect the DirecTV receiver directly to the Plasma input it works as adve...

Stopped working after 4 months
 
The NR-708 was a fairly robust receiver for this price range, and I was very satisfied with its performance, features and functionality overall...until it became unuseable after 4 months. At first it began switching inputs at random. But I was able to simply revert back to my original input choice. Then within a week it all the sudden became completely unresponsive to the remote or to any inputs on the front panel. In fact, it would not even shut off, and the problem could not be resolved by...

Onkyo 708 Very Disappointing
 
I'm replacing an older Yamaha. I was going to go with the Pioneer 1120 but the 708 got great reviews and was more available. I am using the same B&W speakers I had previously. When I first hooked up the 708 I though it was odd that no sound came out until level "50". It never got very loud. I ran the auto set up and it worked for 2 hours. Then no sound came out at all using the cable, blu-ray or VCR. I called support. First call rang and rang then stopped. The second call a guy picked up...

Warning: Powered Zone 2 is effectively worthless - analog only
 
I had a prior Onkyo reciever which I purchased for a number of reasons, among them the powered zone 2. It was a great receiever - loved the features, the sound quality, looks, everything. However, powered zone 2 was a priority for me. I found that the powered zone 2 was flakey - some things would play in my zone 2, others wouldnt (in my defense, it happened to be a very busy time in my life and I didnt have time or mindshare to figure it out.) Eventually I found hidden in a footnote 3/4 of th...

Onkyo NR708 reviewed by computer geek
 
Recently bought this amp based on features and reviews from others. As an off-the-shelf amp for the average AV nerd, this one is pretty decent. It will decode most standard AV streams such as AVCHD, MKV and NTSC. I/O assignment, while user-hostile, is very flexible and functional. Poor codec support, PAL playback yeilds "unsupported format". It won't play a 48khz 2ch mpeg2 audio stream either. Most HDMI inputs I had to turn the sound all the way up just to be able to hear anything. The...

Outstanding sound / Many unusable connections
 
I purchased this Onkyo to replace an older Onkyo which did not support HDMI. Pros This receiver is very simple to set up onscreen menus are easy to navigate The automatic speaker set up worked amazingly well, and provided balanced surround sound No Ipod dock is needed, plug your ipod right in, the onscreen menus are a little clunky, but you can control your ipod remotely. Con Only one con this receiver has a ton of connections, but you cannot cycle between HD...
