3 out of 5 eggsGood Product - Could Be Great

Pros: - Sound quality; Once I was able to find what I was looking for in the fairly confusing setup/configuration menu it turns out to be very nice sound. It simply took me awhile to get to the speaker level calibration window. It’s simply good and with more than enough power to push my Energy 5.1+Bose 301s to shaking the walls while maintain very well defined frequencies throughout the spectrum.
- Bluetooth; Very simple to connect my android phone. Press the BT button on the front panel, initiate scan on the phone, the Onkyo initially pops up as a new mac address, hit connect on the phone and that was it. Sound was good. Connection was solid even as I traveled around the house. I know my droid has a very good BT range, but some of the headsets/radios I’ve connected to in the past have been pretty pathetic. I was well over 40’ and on the other side of a drywall and the connection never faltered.
- Plenty of HDMI ins for all of your sources. Configuration of each input’s video and audio sources was easy enough. I was surprised that there are two HDMI outs. I doubt that I’ll ever find a use for the 2nd output but you never know. Nice to have.
- ARC; I was glad to see this especially after finding that there is only one optical audio input on this receiver compared to the two on the rear my old Onkyo. See CONs.
- Remote; Ok. This is under PROs but if I’d written this when I first started doing the installation of the receiver, it would be firmly ensconced in the living room wall. It’s busy. Man, is it busy! Lots of buttons and options. And this actually becomes a PRO after coding in the TV, Sat dish and Blu Ray player. One of the things I found lacking in the Harmony 300 was that there were simply a couple of functions that it would not pick up. As far as I can tell so far, the remote transfers all functionality for the other devices onto this remote and so far, so far….it seems to be complete across the board. Now I haven’t had a chance to go over everything and I may edit this review later.
- $299 and free shipping from Newegg. What more needs to be said.
- I ordered it on standard free shipping and it got here in two days. Newegg. Gotta give them their due.

Cons: - Bluetooth: I got you. How can BT be a PRO AND a CON? Easy. While it’s nice to be able to connect the phone to it, it is not a transmitter, only a receiver. This means that I can’t connect my trusty, much loved Sennheiser MM400s so I can listen to my sports or whatever at 2am Saturday morning while the wife is sleeping. And 2, it doesn’t stream video to the receiver, just audio. Caveat….maybe that’s a good thing at this stage of development. The music videos I was streaming lagged by almost 2 full seconds compared to what was on my phone. Does that mean that the audio and video channels would have necessarily been out of synch by the time they reached the receiver and got pumped to speakers and tv respectively? I can’t make that claim because it’s not a feature that exists. Seriously though, Onkyo. Look, I understand it’s a bargain price 7.2 with solid sound and a lot of features, but if you’re going to add BT then add the whole tamale and not just one of at least three possible features. I would sure love to see an update that addresses those issues.
- Optical Audio In: My RC260 had two optical audio ins which was great because I could hook my sat box as well as my Blu Ray player to the A/V using optics. As it now stands I either go out and buy a coaxial audio cord, or I hang with the ARC feature. I just wish I had a place to install the 2nd of my two optics cables.
- At first I thought the remote was damaged because while I could change sources and adjust the volume, I couldn’t get it to go to any menus to include Home and Setup. Seems you have to press “Receiver”, “Setup” “Enter”. Why? I was already in receiver mode. And that’s not the only unintuitive, multi-button combination that they have encoded into the remote. Just think there has to be an easier way (like, I don’t know, push a button and the A/V responds).
- Audessey Auto Calibration was ok, but plugged the volume levels way too low. I had to go in and calibrate the levels myself based on my ears. The menus are hard to navigate, so pulling down the ops manual from the Onkyo site and printing the nav map out was necessary for me to get to where I wanted to go.
- Heat: Finally, this thing is a furnace! It gets very hot very fast. I have a usb powered computer fan en route and may update, but I have read that a good one will keep temps down significantly.

Other Thoughts: Overall, at the very initial stages of ownership, I am satisfied. For the price it’s hard to beat the sound combined with all of the features provided. That said, it definitely has areas where Onkyo probably could have tightened up their build standards just a tad in order to have made this a no kidding great buy.

4 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good

Pros: Clean Audio, Easy Setup, Room Acoustic Calibration Easy, Solid binding posts, Plenty of HDMI ins and outs, WiFi setup easy and feedback continuous, When connecting to BlueTooth-receiver automatically switches to BT connection.

Cons: Turning on or off TV while audio is output will cause audio to pause monementarily, Can only pair Bluetooth while in BT mode (minor), When disconnecting BT receiver does not revert to prior input

Other Thoughts: This thing sounds great — my bookshelf S38s (JBLs with 8" drivers) sound are really shining with this amp. I also really like that they have real binding posts — unlike other amps in the category that you have to use bare wire connections. The Onkyo Remote 3 (just came out 2015) is even easier to use on iOS.

I got this at a blowout price, new, and unless it fails within 2 years, I will have gotten a great near Xmas deal.

I have read about Onkyo’s HDMI going out after a year. I have seen 3 different models where this happened and in every case the user put another component on top of the receiver — partially blocking the air vents. The manual specifically shows not to put anything in top of it, and the standoff common to audio components does not allow enough airflow. I think this is probably the reason for the failures because I recommended a 717 to my sister 2 years ago, and made sure to tell her not to put anything on top of it, telling her it is the quickest way to kill the amp because heat is the enemy of electronics. Her 717 is over 2 years old and still working fine. I have had my 626 a few months, so we shall see if it lasts longer than the 18-24 months people are saying these might last.

1 out of 5 eggsBad HDMI Board

Pros: Lots of Flexibility

Cons: These units are notorious for the HDMI Board failing in 24 to 30 months, making the unit totally unusable. Pay a little more and get a Yamaha. Yamaha A820 is a much more reliable unit. Onkyo quality has gone down the drain.

Other Thoughts: Get a Yamaha instead. Onkyo life has gone down the drain.

5 out of 5 eggsMy fourth Onkyo Receiver

Pros: I like the Onkyo Receivers, every new model comes with new features. This one has the Bluetooth. My kids have it linked to their IPhones cranking the tunes. The surround system is great for watching TV or video games.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsOnkyo TX-NR626

Pros: A great buy for the money (got a good Black Friday deal!!). It is easy to setup, and the sound quality is good. There are enough connection points on the back of the receiver to satisfy most people's needs. Wifi is also built in.

Cons: I did not deduct an egg because the manual is on cd. Newegg did not manufacture the receiver. The manual is quite large and would cost a fortune in ink cartridges to print out. Being on cd is not very convenient for me.

Other Thoughts: The receiver generates a lot of heat. I am going to use a couple of 120mm fans to make a cooler for it.

2 out of 5 eggsGood in the beginning

Pros: When I first got my Receiver everything worked great and continued to work great for about a year. Then one day had no HDMI support. I ran every test that I knew still no HDMI support.

Cons: Will last about a year before you will have no HDMI support.

Other Thoughts: ONKYO was recommended to me by a friend because he never had a problem with his receiver, but his receiver did not have HDMI. If ONKYO could make the HDMI last for more than one year it would be great.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Bang for Buck at $300 - get a USB fan...

Pros: Onboard streaming audio clients(Pandora, Spotify, etc)
Excellent Android/iPhone clients for remote control
Web GUI for configuration and favorite web channel addition.
2nd speaker output zone with independent source and volume control
Supports command line commands from a unix host for volume and power and other things.
Max volume setting... nice if you have kids.
Auto speaker level tuning with the Audessy mic.

Cons: Gets warm when operational. This is normal per Onkyo however I connected a USB fan to the front USB port and stuck the fan behind the receiver to pull air out the back of my TV stand. This is only powered when the unit is on. No more heating up. I ordered an AC Infinity unit from Am.zon. This is my only con with this unit for my use.

4 out of 5 eggsOnkyo TX-NR626

Pros: 1. Price - Black Friday sale at $275.00 made this a compelling purchase
2. Easy Audyssey setup - hook up the included microphone and position it in 3 listening spots and you're done. Of course, you can tweak it manually too.
3. Network connectivity (wired and wireless) very easy to work with
4. 6 HDMI inputs give me a lot of room for expansion.
5. Front panel is well laid out and fairly intuitive, albeit kinda boring
6. Back panel has connections for everything you may need
7. Lots of power compared to my previous 70W/ch Onkyo. Bass is fuller and sound is a bit warmer.

Cons: 1. Wish it had HD Radio
2. Very sparse paper documentation (full manual in PDF provided on CD)
3. Remote looks like it did 5 years ago
4. Runs a bit hotter than my previous receiver (Onkyo TX-SR608)

Other Thoughts: Great receiver for the price. Everything works and got it up and running with the rest of my home theater gear in 30 minutes.
If you are familiar with Onkyo receivers, this is very easy to set up and work with
This is my first network-enabled receiver and I love all the options it gives me - Pandora, Spotify, etc.
Newegg sent this to me in the plain factory box - so the whole world could see what was sitting on my doorstep.
You can download the iphone app for any Onkyo network-enabled receiver. Not full-featured but still pretty cool.
