Great receiver, but dual HDMI out can have issues.
 
The unit is treasure trove of features, but there's one open issue over an HDCP error when the two HDMI outputs are both active. This problem only occurs with the cable box, not Blueray or other video sources, so it may be an issue with the Comcast/Motorola STB, as some generation Motorola STBs have been known to fail through any receiver repeater, let alone two.Since Onkyo's tech support is so obtuse, it's hard to conclude if it's their problem or not. Their answers tend have the bi...

best home receiver to me
 
straight to the point. My beloved kenwood receiver of 10 years got too old and couldn't keep up. I kept the kenwood speakers and I thought they wouldn't be able to sound as good but they came a live. the onkyo sounds great, the setup was a breeze. The on scrren display made it even easier. My setup is with 5 speakers and I had to buy a powered sub klipch. I also used the one of the zones for the backyard rockspeaker which sounds incrdible. When I'm outside I play the internet radio and make wate...

Tame the confusion of audio and video in your home; but with no warranty
 
EDIT: Downgraded from 5 to 2 stars for spectacular warranty service failure on the part of Onkyo. See below.You know how it is. Take a look at your entertainment area. How many pieces of hardware are sitting there? A TV, a cable box, maybe DirecTV; a CD player, maybe an iPod dock. DVD player? Blu-ray disc player? Old VCR? An Airport Express for AirTunes, perhaps? How about a PS3, an Xbox, a Wii? Apple TV? Slingbox? Hulu player? Mac mini media station? How many speakers...

Great price for features, if you want them all but still lacking basics
 
After years away from the nuances of the home audio field, and receivers specifically, I recently returned with the purchase of this Onkyo to discover what has and hasn't much changed. I found this promising unit a very well made physical box, with solid knobs and plenty of features for the price. However, the inexplicable inability to provide Zone 2 and/or Zone 3 with digital audio was ultimately, especially at this price point, a deal breaker.Further disappointments were the onscre...

Onkyo TX-NR1008
 
So far this receiver has worked wonderfully. The sound is great, the audyssey setup worked pretty well. I wrote down the configuration that the audyssey came up with, after manually adjusting the system to what I thought was the best, I compared it to the audyssey and determined they were pretty close. The Video output on pass-through is accurate. This is all that I can say at this point, I will continue this review later.

Great receiver, until you need more than one zone
 
I loved this receiver... for a few weeks. Then I discovered a weakness that, at least to me, makes it utterly worthless (and of course it can't be returned at this point)...to wit:If you're buying it for it having 3 zones, don't bother. Heck, I'd settle for two actually-functional zones, but it doesn't even have that. What do I mean? Well, Zones 2 & 3 can ONLY be used if you're using analog audio sources. This means no AppleTV or any other modern box that doesn't have RCA ...

Annoying design misses
 
The good: BD to 1080p display is great. Surround sound calibration is sweet.The not so good: Composite video up-converted by the receiver to HDMI has flicker. Not a huge problem, but I had better quality running a separate composite video cable. So much for HDMI being able to reduce the cable count.The bad and really annoying: No digital sources to zones 2 or 3. This means no PCM from my PC, no HDMI from the BD player, no internet radio, and no media server. So the m...

Defective out from the box
 
I never had true chance to evaluate it. It could not be turned on. Customer support at Onkyo could not help , suggested returning the receiver to Amazon.com which I plan to do

Great receiver, BUT...
 
Overall: B+The Positives:I love Onkyo. My Onkyo CD changer, purchased in 1995, is still working perfectly. My Onkyo TX-DS575 receiver has worked flawlessly for 10 years and I expect it to keep working for years to come (unlike the several Sony products I've owned), but the TX-NR1008 had so many cool new features that when I saw it on sale I jumped on it.Internet connectivity is great. That was my primary motive. Now I can get stations from all over the world! ...

Update: Fails early!
 
I'm not going to cover what's already been said, but I have a few things to add.The input selectors on the remote and front panel of the receiver are a stroke of genius! It makes it possible for even my mother (no disrespect intended, but she just doesn't get technical things!) to operate the thing. It also discourages users from inadvertently changing settings as she constantly used to do while trying to switch inputs. In this regard, the receiver is definitely superior to the De...
