This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver – Black
Pros: Features, Dual HDMI Outs, endless amounts of inputs/outputs. 9.2 audio support with external amp. Network ready, online radio, Remote.
PRICE $639.99 ON SALE!
Other Thoughts: I purchased the Onkyo TX NR818 due to its mass amounts of features it has at this sale price. I dare you to find another receiver at this price with something even close to these specs.
Setting and configuring up is a breeze using the onscreen guide. I love the dual HDMI output, one goes out to my projector while the other output is to a monitor.The Audyssey 32XT is great for self-calibration (i then fine tune with SPL meter). Although the receiver has Dual Subwoofer outputs, the version of Audyssey on this receiver does not have multi subwoofer calibration.
My setup consists of a 7 channel external amp powering my Klipsch Reference speakers and dual PSA subwoofers. This Onkyo receiver is capable of outputting 9.2 surround sound (Either Wide OR Heights but not both) with an external amplifier. I had an old pair of Polk tower speakers so that I can test out 9.2 (Front Wide mode). The Onkyo is powering my front main speakers. If your room is wide enough having front wide speakers really opens the front sound stage!
The remote buttons are laid out nicely. I love the onscreen volume and audio information since my receiver is in a closet. The remote app on my Android phone, is a neat option. I have my Onkyo hardwired to my network so everything is instant. When connecting an iPod via USB, I am able to use my phone like an iPod to view and play songs (same for online radio).
Overall I am one happy camper and do not see myself upgrading in the future.
