5 out of 5 eggsGreat receiver when on sale

Pros: Plenty of HDMI inputs, you can hook (2) TVs to it, (2) subs. I have yet to run into anything I couldn't connect.

It's even future proof with Dolby THX & 4K support.

Everything on this receiver is a pro! You will not find a better receiver at this price point.

My brother has had an Onkyo for years in his garage. It sees every weather possible and is still working.

Cons: The main con and I'm not sure it's Onkyo's fault, is the HDMI control with other components. When I turn off the TV to listen to something that doesn't require it, the TV goes off and switches to TV speaker for some reason. Pressing up or down on the receiver volume switched it back to the Amp. Not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: The best part is, if you run into trouble, Onkyo's support people actually work from your receiver and they easy to understand.

Something like this needs good supports.

4 out of 5 eggsSeems like a solid performer

Pros: Nice to look at. Sounds good when paired with the correct speakers, like the infinity primus 363 which can be had for one hundred seven shipped each. Selectable impedance of 4 ohm and 6 ohm.... not sure why there is not on for 8 ohm...? Any comments on this?

Cons: I have some questions concerning video output size when set for cable signal.... there is typically a small black bar on either side of the screen, regardless of the tv aspect ratio setting. This is not so for blue ray disc though. I have it on a $1200. SOLA power conditioner, to make sure it is protected. There is some delay when switching video signals or when turning on the TV.

Other Thoughts: As I stated, it sounds very good when paired with a good set of speakers. I have a classical music background and I am enjoying it.... I would recommend pairing it with infinity primus 363 which can be bought at Fr** for a little over 100. each. I bought five Polk Monitor 60's and they definitely do not sound as good to my ear. I can't speak for how the Monitor 70's or above sound. With Primus 363's I do not really need to run my Klipsch powered subwoofer as there is enough bass in the sound for my ears.

5 out of 5 eggsOnkyo TX-NR717

Pros: Great AV receiver. Got all the bells and whistles and save more than 50% off because it's a last year model. This receiver is better than most receivers in the market now at the same price. THX feature is great.

Cons: None so far. Some reviews said there is HDMI issues...but mine worked great out of the box. And was box in a separate box for shipping. Great service and product.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't say enough good things about this receiver

Pros: * Incredible sound; well balanced and clear
* Very easy setup (I'm pretty competent and didn't even need the manual)
* EZ integration with home music server via wired Ethernet
* Pandora sounds great

Cons: * Remote is somewhat confusing and could be improved; buttons are small and hard to see in darkened room
* Can only access music not videos and pictures on home server (this is spelled out in manual); need to copy to USB drive for access
* Spotify requires premium subscription to use
* On screen UI could be more modern

Other Thoughts: I've only had this for a few days but it is a huge improvement over my previous Onkyo with excellent functionality, clear and rich sound. I'd highly recommend this. Was planning on buying the Onkyo TX-NR626 but at $429.99 (this price was only available for about a week) this was less expensive and had a lot more features. I have wired Ethernet at my stereo console so the lack of built-in wifi wasn't an issue. Just hooked it up to the 2nd Ethernet port on my DirecTV DVR and it immediately connected.

1 out of 5 eggsOnkyo

Pros: It sounded great great options were great the first 23 months one month short of warranty! I really loved it best receiver I ever had, and then the problem started HDMI port when bad

Cons: Onkyo has no customer service you must package your receiver up send it to an independent repair shop they do not have a factory warranty service it will cost you at least $50 to ship it depending on how much insurance you want to put on it only to get back and not have it work would not recommended hope you don't receive it to anybody's and if you read the reviews on the independent shops he wouldn't send a toasted to them needless to say I don't have to buy another receiver and it certainly won't be oykno

Other Thoughts: If you do a search you'll see this problem with the HDMI ports is a problem with just about every Onkyo receiver made I hope this review will help somebody make the right decision

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Choice

Pros: I realized that this receiver was a major upgrade for me when I heard the sound. It supports a wide range of high end formats. It was easy to setup. It let me know that one of my speakers had an issue when my last one didn't.

The auto sound management features make a huge difference. I no longer need to up the volume to hear dialog and rush to lower the volume before the explosions blow my speakers. I always hated that.

It has two HDMI outputs which was the deciding factor for me. I have a TV and a projector. I would have had to pay about $300 more to get 2 output by another brand.

Cons: The only issue I have is the delay with format syncing. When the input signal changes resolution (for example, 1080 to 720 or Dolby to DTS), there is about 3 seconds of no screen or sound until it figures out what the output should be. This usually only happens when you first start a movie, but it will happen when Netflix dynamically downgrades or upgrades the quality during a showing. That is when it gets annoying. Doesn't happen often and it may not happen to you if you have a better Internet connection.

There is also a 1-2 second delay for the sound to return after pausing a movie. The video continues, but the sound has that short delay.

Other Thoughts: I only broke one egg for the cons I stated since all other aspects of the receiver are awesome. Perhaps Onkyo can fix it with a firmware update, dunno. I would buy this receiver again.

1 out of 5 eggsZone 2/3 are analog only

Pros: All the HDMI inputs, there is no drop of video quality from source device through the receiver

Cons: I bought this unit specifically for the Powered Zones 2/3 I read many write ups but Onkyo fails (purposely) to mention that Zone 2/3 will not work on Digital which means all the HDMI inputs I have will not play Zone 2/3. Having multi zones is why I bought this unit as we do entertaining and I want to isolate the party music in the game room, deck and pool side. If having multi zones is important I would pass on this one...too late for me to return.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful receiver

Pros: 1. Price - unbelievable value for the money.
2. Powerful, clear sound through my KEF speakers.
3. Nice looking menus (compared to my 2008 Denon).
4. DLNA! Love Play To option from my notebook.
5. A bunch of internet radio stations if you need them.
6. 2 year warranty.
7. WiFi ready.
8. Does not support AirPlay so no Apple tax.

Cons: 1. Network navigation on the device is cumbersome if toy have hundreds of CDs.
2. Takes quite a bit to initialize the network.
3. Gets a bit warm. Don't keep it enclosed.

Other Thoughts: I updated the firmware from the usb right away and I had 0 problems with the unit.
