Pros: Fast, pretty rugged, feels well-made

This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR525 5.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver
Pros: Six HDMI inputs, which is the best way to hook up a HTPC and other devices. Plenty enough power. Output for a powered subwoofer. Ethernet input. Lots more.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: Have a HTPC (including Blueray) with HDMI, plus PC and DVD inputs, all output to a 1080P projector and 84" screen, Polk speakers and sub, all on Black Friday a year ago. Awesome value for the price, way better than a huge flat panel at 5X the price IMHO. Have not tried all the features yet. Watched the winter Olympics on this system and it blew everyone away. HDMI is the way to go for painless and flexible multi-AV device wiring and this receiver can handle anything you want to throw at it in that regard.READ FULL REVIEW
