5 out of 5 eggsSuper Awesome Sound!

Pros: The sound and options are amazing. This receiver has everything you could ever want. It's 3D capable, 9.2, multi-room/zone, streams internet radio without a PC, will connect directly to Windows Media Server, has multiple HDMI inputs, and has on-screen settings.

Cons: The only thing I don't like is the remote, it seems clumsy and awkward. With all the features packed into this receiver, a nicer remote control would have been appreciated. Not that the remote is horrible, it's pretty standard, just wish it would have been something flashier.

Other Thoughts: I fell in love with this receiver as soon as I set it up. The sound is crisp and clear, amazing detail in quality. Definitely well worth the investment, and an even sweeter deal for me, I happened to get it on sale.

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware

Pros: Very nice unit when it works.

Cons: Only had mine 30 days when things started to go wrong. I must have gotten one of the lemons. Started out with remote not responding, then audio/video problems to not even being able to manually change the volume. You would think for the price you'd be buying top of the line in Onkyo quality. Hope to get mine fixed soon.

Other Thoughts: Be sure and purchase an extended warranty. Think I'd look at Denon or another brand if I wasn't already stuck with this unit.

5 out of 5 eggsThis Reciver Rocks

Pros: Outstanding sound
Tons of opions
More inputs than you can use
Two screen output

Cons: None that I can find

Other Thoughts: This is a very heavy unit - 63 pounds. I did not want to list as a con, since that is part of why this is such a quality receiver and produces the best sound I have ever heard. If you are in the market for a Top of the Line reciver ... look no further ... there is none better than this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood power, fairly clean

Pros: This receiver has good power. Lots of nice features, and configurable. Remote is fine, but I only used it once before I got my harmony one programmed. Surround modes seem decent quality. Well laid out back panel. Clean sound, good stage, Pre outs are decent quality, even the sub outs.

Cons: Puts out some heat, not a big deal for me, but might be for others. Deeper than my old receiver. Can't do 2 ohm in bridged mode...but then not many amps can.

Other Thoughts: I was also looking at a N.A.D, but the Onkyo is about 2.5k cheaper. Being *really* picky here, the highs are a little ragged and the mids could be smoother on my Martin Logan Aerius II, and Theater i, but its definitely much better than I expected. I have a 12" powered sub, so not sure how good it could drive fronts that are bass demanding. I am running it in 7.2, and I used the bi-amp option for the fronts. That gives them more power than I cared to test. No appreciable distortion before I gave up. Rear Polk dipolars (older model) sound great for the first time in years. I am using an old pair of Infinity's for the front high, and they do well enough for that. Overall I am pleased with the receiver, and would recommend it to anyone needing the options or power it can deliver, but don't want to pay for the expensive alternatives.

5 out of 5 eggsElite Receiver

Pros: The receiver has tremendous reserves and virtually no distortion. I have never owned a receiver with so many settings, even including a variable mute setting and crossover settings for each speaker pair. The Bi-amp feature is also a first for me. My Polk speakers work very well with it and the sound is good enough to fool my pets.

Cons: The receiver lacks switched AC outlets, necessitating purchasing a power console to deal with my subwoofers. The unit also gives off a large amount of heat, possibly being a heat load during the summer

Other Thoughts: This is my second flagship Onkyo receiver and I have found no better receivers in this price range

3 out of 5 eggsHMDI interface issues

Pros: Lots of HDMI inputs, Great sound, easy surround set up. Still playing with it so will let you know.

Cons: Has HDMI interface issues. HDMI will not work with my Motorola QIP72161 FIOS box. IT worked with my old Yamaha. Sad thing is Onkyo claims it is Motorola's problem and Frontier says Onkyo's. Seems one or both must be out of spec and suspect Onkyo since it worked with the other receiver. Don't like the finger pointing back and forth and I believe onkyo should step up on this one. I am considering sending it back and going back to Yamaha

Other Thoughts: Little bit of confusion sending anything but receiver sound to the zone 2 speakers

5 out of 5 eggsScrumtrulescent!

Pros: Such clean, high power. My speakers have never sounded as good to date. No matter how loud I turn it up, the sound is always clear and detailed, and no distortion. When I first got my 5008 the tuesday before Thanksgiving, I took my time hooking up all my speakers, my fat PS3, and my TiVo Premier into the Onk with hdmi each, and then hdmi out to my Pio elite pro-151fd. To date I have not had any problems that some have described. I was able to update the latest firmware through the network connection the very first try, took only 5 minutes. Pandora sounds amazing and easy to use, as is the media sharing feature. The 5008 recognized my home pc through the network immediately and was able to stream songs off my pc instantly. There are more then enough inputs, outputs, features and sound modes that any one person could need. As for the MultiEQ XT32, didn't think my room, which could be considered very bright, could ever sound as good as it does now.

Cons: Really I have no dislikes of this beast and no cons in my eyes. I know there are some that have or are having problems, unfortunately there are a few defective units in every batch, and hopefully they get an exchange for another that works, cause I have had no problems so far (knock on wood) and I absolutely love this thing. I have had no issues with lip sync, speaker hiss, audio dropouts...anything!

Other Thoughts: Took advantage of that great weekend sale price that newegg has been running for the past month or so. Ordered it on a saturday night, was at my door tuesday afternoon. Love how fast my order was processed and shipped. Though I read, and re-read time and time again the features, manual, dimensions and weight online, when I unboxed it I was still floored at the size of this thing. Be sure you have the space and a strong enough shelf for this thing. It has all the connections you could ever need now and for years to come.

3 out of 5 eggsAwesome except for a few fatal flaws

Pros: More inputs and outputs than you could ever need. Good clean power. Extremely versatile. Very reasonably priced for what you get.

Cons: (1) Audio delay via HDMI causes lip-sync problems, not correctable in the receiver, even in Pure Audio mode. (2) There is no way to adjust volume levels of individual channels without interrupting playback. (Center too soft? Surrounds too loud? Sorry, you can't fix it without drilling down into the setup menu.) (3) Finally, my unit stopped outputting from the Subwoofer line-level outputs after 2 days for no apparent reason. I tried everything, including factory reset, to fix it, but the outputs remained totally dead. I would have kept it longer during the return period, and tried to live with problems 1 & 2, except problem 3 was the last straw.

Other Thoughts: Loaded with features most people will never use, including around a dozen surround modes. Runs so hot that the TV cable box several shelves above it in my rack turned its fan on for the first time ever.
