This review is from: ONKYO TX-NR616 7.2-Channel THX Certified Network A/V Receiver
Great Sound, LOTS of inputs, option to use multiple zones, phone app reduces the need for remote hunting, room setup with included mic
If it has a multi-band EQ, I haven't found it yet. Won't stream videos, just audio - so we have to use the XBOX for some media center functions. No built-in bluetooth.
I didn't find this difficult to set up at all - took about 15-20 minutes for the basics and maybe another 20 for a bunch of tweaking (you can pick 4 different setups for movie/music/game/net). Upgraded from a lower-end Kenwood, I had forgotten how much difference a nice amp could make. The phone app is pretty capable, kids like it because they can adjust the volume without looking for the remote (phone is never more than 6" away :-P ) I use it with a Logitech Harmony remote, works great. Full disclosure (as some of the other reviews indicate this is for the technical only), I am an engineer; though I don't agree this would be necessary for setup. You do need to work through the menus if you want to use all the features effectively.
