This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR3010 9.2-Channel Receiver
Pros: Amazing video processor. My Oppo BDP93 also has the Qdeo but the Onkyo dramatically improves the picture quality.
XT32 makes a significant improvement in sound over the older plain-jane MultEQ. My 8 year old Jamo's have found new life with this receiver.
Running in 7.1 config with front-high speakers. The Onkyo has replaced my problematic Denon AVR-3312ci. The Onkyo blows the Denon out of the water on everything but aesthetics. I still love the look of the Denon.
This is a true 9.2 receiver (unlike my prior Denon) in that each subwoofer is calibrated independently. Denon claimed 7.2 but they treated both subs as 1 in the calibration process (even though it had two sub out's).
Cons: You can not reassign the output channels. I planned to run 9.2 config with F, C, Sur, FH with the 8th & 9th channels to bi-amp the F speakers. Onkyo has designated the Front High channel as the bi-amp channel for the Fronts. So I have two channels that become worthless to my particular (and common) configuration. I would need Front Wide speakers to run it 9.2 with bi-amped Fronts. The shape of my room makes that impossible.
Unable to dim the lights in the font display panel completely. They get **darker** but why not offer the ability to black it out?
No back-light on the remote. Why can't an OEM design a back-lit remote that lights up as soon as you touch it?
Other Thoughts: Would give 5 stars if they allowed the ability to reassign the speaker output channels.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Blazing speed. Great at keeping connections 'connected'. Can kill all L.E.D. lights if you like. Impressive range. Very user friendly GUI.
Cons: None so far. Been using since Nov 2013.
Other Thoughts: Router in basement and I am still able to get a great signal all the way to the 3rd floor. I have between 13 and 18 devices connected at all times. It has been rock solid at keeping them all continuously connected.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ASUS RT-AC66R Dual-Band Wireless-AC1750 Gigabit Router –Asus Certified.
Pros: Blazing Speed. Connect to RT-AC68U at 1300 Mbps in 'Repeater Mode'. Very good UI.
Cons: Internet will not throughput with RT-AC68U in 'Media Bridge'. I can connect to it but no data transmission. Can't kill the L.E.D. lights like I can with AC68U.
Other Thoughts: Purchased solely to be the Media Bridge for my computer in the basement to connect to RT-AC68U router upstars. No matter what I do, I can't get it to work properly in Media Bridge mode. I have successfully been able to operate under 'Repeater mode', but then I have to deal with each router now sending out a wi-fi broadcast. No fixes with recent firmware updates (184.108.40.206.374_5517)READ FULL REVIEW
