ONKYO TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver – Black

5 out of 5 eggs A New CHAMP! 11/07/2013

This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver – Black

Pros: We had a couple of hiccoughs with a dead on arrival AV receiver, and then an error in its' replacement. However, due to the most EXCELLENT customer service we have EVER experienced in MANY years of consumer electronics shopping, both online and in "regular" stores, we received our Onkyo TX-NR818 VERY quickly and in pristine condition. It handles all of my numerous components with plenty of inputs to spare. The set-up and controls are both clear and logical. The 7.2 sound is AMAZING. And the POWER...! With plenty of unused speaker binding posts, we am considering adding 4 more speakers to go to 9.2. This is our 7th Onkyo AVR. ( All are still working just like the day I received them. )
We have several homes ( lake, ranch, etc. ), each with their own system(s). Onkyo's 24hr. telephone technical support is also a definite plus for getting even the most minute details of your system answered. Overall, we can most heartily recommend both OneCall and Onkyo. You just can't go wrong with either one.

Cons: This is a big, heavy unit. ( 40+ lbs. ) 135W has to come from somewhere, so be prepared for an intricate, adaptable AVR. ( The CD-ROM manual is clear and precise. 24hr. Onkyo tech support is also available...and they REALLY know what they are talking about! ) Thanks to Gabe, Manny and Sal at Onkyo for your help in the past with all my questions over these last few years..

Other Thoughts: This will prolly be the highest level of Onkyo AVRs I will ever buy. It has everything and more for my needs.

1 out of 5 eggs Dead On arrival 11/03/2013

This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR818 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver – Black

Pros: Mine was dead right out of the box. The replacement sent me was the wrong ( lesser ) model.

Cons: Would like to hear one that actually works before rendering an opinion.

1 out of 5 eggs Sooooooo DISAPPOINTED!!! 02/08/2012

This review is from: Klipsch WB-14 Icon-W Series Cabernet Bookshelf Speaker- Pair

Pros: The speakers sound FINE! They look fine too, in the non-threatened Berlinia ( cabernet ) wood. I am WELL pleased with the performance of these speakers!!!

Cons: The problem is, the grilles WILL NOT ATTACH to the speakers! These are magnetic, not velcro, or even pins and sockets ( I guess so they will look pretty when the grilles are not installed ) But WHO CARES what a speaker LOOKS like?!

Other Thoughts: I bought these over a month ago, and "broke" them in gently. I mounted them overhead on the wall for one of my home theater set ups. I TRIED to install the magnetic grilles, but they JUST FALL OFF! Newegg declined to help me since the initial 30 days have come and gone. I HAVE BOUGHT OVER $1000 WORTH OF SPEAKERS IN THE LAST 2MOS! I guess Newegg is a BIG corporation, and I am a small fry.
