Pros: Excellent features and hard to beat for the price... or so I thought!

Cons: Purchased this receiver back in March 2014 when it went on sale, five months later in August, while watching a movie in surround sound... I heard loud pops coming from the receiver, the receiver shut off and smoke started to pour out of the unit. Contacted Newegg, who was of no help because it was beyond my 30 day grace period... they advised me to contact Onkyo, which I did. Onkyo then directed me to send it to their nearest repair shop. After speaking with Onkyo's tech support I will never purchase another product from them, as the tech didnt want to help me, nor did he want to send me an email with the info to where to send the unit for repair / replacement. Extremely poor customer service!!! So now it is costing me another $50+ bucks to ship it to their repair center, and who knows how long it will take them to get it back to me!

Other Thoughts: Think the reason Newegg had this thing at such a low cost is that Onkyo knew it was a bad batch and were trying to liquidate them. Newegg, why sale something that you will not stand behind??? Shame on you!!! Now I am out over $400 and given my dealing with Onkyo thus far, will probably be left with a useless $400 dollar paper weight! BUYER STAY AWAY YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

4 out of 5 eggsMay 3 to July 14 Wifi

Pros: Great WRAT Amp and Great Watts, Great Audio and Audyssey Multi-EQ works for my room, with 12 by 9 dimensions. I use 4 custom speakers in Front and Rear left and right, and 2 surround speakers left and right that are from Micca bookshelf speakers I changed out the tweeter in, from parts from Parts-Express. The 4 custom speakers are Peerless 6.5" woofers (60 dollars apiece) and Beston Ribbon tweeters (40 dollars apiece)...with audio grade crossovers. The center channel is a Di' Apolitano configuration with custom woofers and tweeters in a diminutive package to not distract from the monitor (40" 1080p). My single sub is a 400 watt custom built with a 10" Peerless driver Extra Long Stroke and the sub is plenty by itself to match the rest of the speaker compliment. The system I think would work in a larger room, sound pressure at 50% throttle is deafening, and the windows rattle.
Now...the 3 months of solid use is in, and the WIFI connection is developing an issue. It seems to be getting booted off my router, a DLink Cloud Router N300 on 2.4GHz band. All and I say ALL my other devices have NEVER been dropped from this router! I have 2 pc's, a WD Media Player, and 2 tablets. Guest Laptops are never dropped. The problem surfaced when the Bluetooth was engaged to run audio from my tablet pc. The issue may disappear, I have to explore the Bluetooth settings which seem to be limited, since there is no OFF to the Bluetooth. The USB port handles my 128 GB jump-drive, a PNY USB 3.0 Class 10. The drive is about 36meg write speed and 60 meg or so read. I was surprised to see that the Receiver would actually handle that size drive. I think it will handle portable hard disks too, but I have not used one yet. I would give 5 eggs if it were not for the Bluetooth not having a manual shutoff. Zone 2 pre-outs are cool too. Even if I have a digital audio source it will output analog to the second amplifier in the other room. I use send and return legs between rooms so each receiver could be master or slave. The HDMI scaling from my PC is compatible, yet my monitor needs resizing for the PC and when I switch it through the Receiver, it's undersize, since the output is slightly smaller from the PC's video card. It's just a matter of my Seiki monitor being fussy with formats.

Cons: Bluetooth issue, and WIFI drops.

Other Thoughts: Setup with the mike and the beeping is LOUD.

1 out of 5 eggsMajot HDMI audio problems

Pros: Worked fine for about 2 weeks.

Cons: HDMI audio problems just like all the other reviews. Sometimes no audio output at all, sometimes won't decode AC3 or DTS, and sometimes works perfectly (for about 10 minutes till audio cuts out again).

I would NOT recommend this to anybody. Onkyo has known about this problem for several years and has not fixed it yet. Luckily I submitted my RMA request on the 30th day or else I would be stuck with a boat anchor. Waiting for NewEgg to refund me because they do not stock this item any more.

Other Thoughts: Another very poor feature is the power management. 99% of the time I am using an HTPC as source for video, and when the computer goes to sleep, the receiver will just output a solid blue screen onto my TV. Normal behavior is that when the PC goes to sleep, it stops display output, and the TV will go to sleep after no activity. The way that Onkyo has it set up the TV will NOT go to sleep because of the blue screen. Very disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsIf you can buy it, do it now

Pros: From the power on button on

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This amp is amazing. I have been a high end audio freak for years. In 1975 I brought back from Japan the hottest gear on the market. Since that time I have had many incarnations of systems from tube to transistor. I had a fantasy several years ago to digitize my c d collection so I could play from my computer to my audio. As many of you know, this is not the easiest process. My last incarnation was the w d t v live (I tried them all) to audio, which was pretty darn good, then came this O N K Y O HT-RC 560 into my life. This amp is totally amazing. I am running through K l i p s ch Icon series(via B e s t b u y) speakers with a 10 inch P o l k sub 5.1. This system impresses me every time I turn it on. If you can get your hands on one for $299 as I did you will not be disappointed. I am so glad I chose this amp.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid 7.2 receiver with a few limitations.

Pros: Good price when on sale. Wireless networking.

Cons: One line display. Doesn't show speaker setup on display. No EQ for speakers. No saving speaker levels/setup for each input. Runs really hot. Difficult setup for first connecting to network. Remote inputs are a bit laggy.

Other Thoughts: For $300 this is a decent receiver. Onkyo has, however, made some cutbacks in features over even lesser receivers in recent years. My Onkyo TX-NR509 has a 2 line display, shows a little picture of the current speaker configuration on the display. Both of those display features were removed for this model HT-RC560.

I was disappointed that this receiver doesn't save your configuration for speaker levels for each input. I like to have my subwoofer level higher for movies than music, but once you set the speaker levels they remain the same for all inputs. No EQ for speakers, as well. Even the cheapest entry model Yamaha receiver includes EQ for all speakers.

The sound quality is about par with my 509, which I think is a strength of the Onkyo receivers. Just be careful, as the RC560 runs hot, as does most Onkyo receivers. I think this excessive heat is what kills the HDMI boards, so running a fan on it is a good idea.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price, scored it on sale for 299.99 from NewEgg
For the price point, far more inputs than competitors.
Bluetooth and wifi connectivity
Quick New Egg shipping, paid 9.99 for 2 day express and got it on one day.

Cons: Set up can be somewhat difficult and not always intuitive

Other Thoughts: Not sure about all the negative reviews on this or Onkyo. Granted i bought my first Onkyo, and the one this one replaces back in '04-'05. It was/is a great receiver. I only replaced it becuase i got such a great deal on this unit and did want to upgrade to modern tech, such as wifi and bluetooth. Finally have it all set up, every thing works as advertised. My router is only about 25 feet away, but it's connected, without difficulty i might add, and has 96% signal. Some of the HDMI set up was difficult, had some trouble with PCM and HDMI surround from my Roku, but once I found the setting to shut off forced PCM everything works great. Highly recommend this receiver. Looking forward to 10 years with this one.

2 out of 5 eggsHDMI issues

Pros: Nice features, Wireless net, bluetooth, streaming services, sound is sharp.

Cons: HDMI craps out. I have heard about this issue on forums, but decided to roll the dice. HDMI comes in and out. This on the first day of usage. My confidence in this unit is gone. The price is tempting so a working unit would have gotten 5 eggs. Will be looking to return the unit.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Receiver

Pros: I think that Onkyo receivers are one of the best bang for the buck deals out there. I own three of them and had no problems so far. I have three separate home theaters set up in my house and all use Onkyo receivers (SR-501, RC 360, & RC560). The RC 560 is packed with great features! The features are all working well:

- HDMI switching
- Wireless
- Auto Set Up with microphone
- Sound

Cons: - Non really so far

Other Thoughts: - I'm happy with my decision to buy this receiver. I was worried because lately a lot of reviews are negative stating quality issues, HDMI issues, etc. So far this is not my experience. My wireless signal is coming in good, the receiver is located about 30 feet from my receiver. Today a receiver is a must with the thin, terrible speakers that tv's come with these days. I use this in conjunction with a Sony Blu Ray and Comcast Cable. I don't think you will be disappointed with this receiver for the price it's an excellent value.

4 out of 5 eggsInitial Impressions

Pros: Built-in wireless WiFi & Bluetooth
Easy speaker setup w/Include mic
Phono Input--for the groove sentamentist(me)

Cons: No backlighting for remote
No Tape In/Out jacks
USB underpowered--won't work w/USB HDD

Other Thoughts: I have had my ONKYO HT-RC560 7.2-Channel Receiver for a few weeks now and I can say that I am very happy with it. The Audysey w/supplied mic did a good job of setting up my 7r. old Bose 5.1 speaker system and the sound is great. I would say the audio is a notch better than my old Harmon Kardon AVR330. But I upgraded primarily for the connectivity(HDMI, Networking) not for any sound improvement so I am very pleased. Even the wife says it sounds better. I wish they could have given the remote backlighting and was surprised to see no Tape IN/OUT jacks. Although I can’t remember the last time I recorded any cassette tapes, I still have the deck and it’s a matter of principle. I have never seen an amp w/o tape i/o. Also, the USB does not provide enough power to run an external USB HDD. Although I have only tried one 2.5” SATA drive/enclosure. I would take half an egg off for these 3 minor deficiencies not a full egg(don't see that option). I use the Zone2 line outputs for my wireless patio speakers and like that it still leaves me the option to go full 7.1 with the powered outputs or connect another set of remote speakers. The networking seems to work fine. I have not tried the wifi or Bluetooth yet. I use a powerline adapter thru an Ethernet switch and can play my music library off my NAS w/o issue both as a share(HomeMedia) or via DLNA. The Android smartphone app does the trick in main room or zone2 but seems to hang occasionally in zone2. Could be my signal level in my patio. I have not tried to update the firmware. From the descriptions in the downloadable instructions the most recent updates are for XM radio and Connect4 SDDP protocol. Neither of which I need/use. I will upgrade sooner or later just to be up to date. All in all an excellent value in a mid-level AVR and would recommend it to anyone unless you really need the tape deck I/O connections.
