Terrific Value and Performance
 
We have owned this receiver for ten days now, and I am blown away by the incredible value Onkyo has packed into this truly great product. I got this receiver to replace a Denon 3802 which could neither process nor switch modern HDMI 1.3 compliant components, nor decode. As sources, I have the new receiver hooked up to a DirecTV HR-21 hi def DVR, a Panasonic Blu-ray (DMP-BD30K, one of the VERY few players which can transfer all the current and future audio formats over the HDMI ...

Awesome! This is one BIG DOG with some bark!
 
I just got this receiver 2 days ago. The first thing I noticed was how heavy it is. Wow! It's actually hard to lift, which to me is a good thing. Upon inspection, it appears that this amp is 100% pure quality. I bought this amp to replace my 6 year old Denon. The Denon is a great amp but this one is as good or better as far as quality goes. I can really hear more coming out of my speakers. Voicing is excellent and the timbre is terrific! This amp also has many more levels of adjustment. The vide...

Excellent Receiver
 
It did not take me long to replace a similar receiver from Harmon Kardon, so, installation was quick. I like the cord id tags that Crutchfield included. The only thing that gave me any trouble was that Onkyo in their documentation did not state categorically that if you hook up a 5.1 set of speakers the rear speakers MUST be connected as the two side surround speakers and not the rear surround speakers. That little omission cost me a lot of lost time figuring out. Otherwise it is an excellen...

Featuring a true 130 watts per channel with all 7 channels driven you can't buy a better receiver. With a $30 discount I got my first 805 brand new for $639 & change. I researched the Onkyo 875 & couldn't justify spending another $360 for a USB port & 10 more watts per channel. Likewise I couldn't justify spending $760 more for HD radio & the 140 watts in the Onkyo 905. But that 905 is a steal at $1,000+ with the toraoidal transformer. & I was tempted. Basically I looked at Yamahas, Marantz, Den...

I approached the purchase of this receiver with quite a bit of trepidation after reading numerous reports of it being very hot, and after seeing how hot it got in a local Fry's. I believe the key is the air circulation you provide for it. At the Fry's where I saw it, it was in a tight box, with no good air circulation, and the top got really really hot.However, here in my house, several days after installing it, and running it almost non-stop for days with a mixture of music and HD-DVDs playing ...

Received my 805 Monday at 10:30am (next day shipping after a Friday evening order). I've not bought a new receiver in 10 years. My original receiver was a Kenwood 1080AV and I thought that was amazing when I heard it. Now, it's being used as a "subwoofer" to drive my 2 - 12" Rockford Fosgates (8 Ohm).If I had to pick just one word it would be "WOW". Even with my 5.1 setup (805 supports 7.1), it's quite a bit different from my original receiver. More modes, more sound and the auto speaker se...

I replaced an aging Denon receiver with an Tx-SR805. I have waited for HDMI 1.3 for almost a year. I expected to pay more, probably another Denon or Pioneer Elite. When this became avaiable I listened to it at Fry's and checked the features, I concluded that it had everyting I wanted in a receiver. I ordered one from Amazon, I can't tell you how good it is, because it still, after almost 2 months is still far better than any other receiver I have owned. My brother has two Denon receivers tha...

This receiver is awesomE! It has everyting I could want in a surround sound receiver. The automatic sound mode detection is flawless. The only thing this unit doesn't do is upconvert to 1080p If you have a 1080p TV, get the TX-SR875. I always dreamed about having an amp like this. I can run all of the components from one control ( If you want to record via your satelite receiver or cable HDVR, you will need to use the satelite or cable box control, or you will have to program the applicabl...

Finally slid this beast into my equipment cabinet over the weekend. Other reviews are correct, this thing is heavy (probably 40 lbs) and runs hot. Be sure to leave space for ventilation. Setup was quick, but have the book handy as it was not as intuitive as previous Onkyos that I have owned. Tons of Surround Sound options and of course, THX. I loved the 3 HDMI inputs (I actually didn't use all of them for once) and the HDMI 1.3 support for my Playstation 3. I haven't tweaked my projector y...

Guess which company managed to get True HD and DTS HD into their next lineup of high end receivers. Onkyo of course!! Cutting edge technology filling your room with beautiful sound.I received my Onkyo TX-SR805 in the mail yesterday and I couldn't be any more thrilled! The behemoth weighs in at 61 lbs. and you can tell it means business. Daunting as it may look, the setup is a breeze due to the fact that everything you plug into the receiver's many inputs, can be output to the TV through one s...
