This was in the VIP email I got today, it's a fantastic price for an absolutely outstanding amp. I couldn't find it cheaper than the VIP price, loads of places are still knocking them out for £1,399! I still can't decide whether to go for the TXSR875 or this one now, the main difference between the two is that the 905 has 2 HDMI outputs and networking capabilities.

I was just about to post this. Very hot indeed. Absolutely monstrous receiver. If I hadn't bought a lesser model about a month ago, this would already be mine.
#3
Does it have european plug (like some SONY QS series with an extra UK plug) or UK plug only?

Lol, all the things it does and you want to know about the plug lol. No idea myself, maybe someone else does.

awesome amp....bear in mind the 875 received reference status usually only reserved for the best quality kit and usually costing £000's

i have the 605 which is an excellent budget av amp......this is even better, tho as usually it has a premium...worth it imo if you want a superb av system without spending as much as an average family car

Probably a real stupid question but why cant you input SCART wires>?

The problem with Onkyo is that they have tons of features and thus are high in the value-for-money stakes but have an awful reputation for build quality. You can see that from the pictures - just look at the remote!!

You can probably get a better-built amp without all the bells and whistles - which are useless for an awful lot of instances.

List the movies that have DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and even Dolby TrueHD encodings - not that many.

The upscaling is a moot point - upscale a crapp*y picture and you get cra*p upscaled.

Lastly, it's the ugliest-looking slab of silver you'll ever have the misfortune to introduce into your decor unless you have the aesthetic nous of a fourteen-year-old kid:shock:

Still, you pays your money....:p

What utter clap-trap spoken by one that knows not much!

The remote - have you actually used it? No? Well, do so, "in the flesh". It's programmable, and learns too. Plus, controls virtually everything.

HD sound formats - you'd only get an amp liek this if you were an AV enthusiast and if you were, chances are that by now or within a few months of this amp, you'd buy a Blu Ray player!

The upscaling ability of this amp is on a par with DVD players that cost at least £500. Although you are right, it can't do much with rubbish signal, but if you have decent DVD signal in - which chances, are you will, then it will do an amazing job. Plus, it takes any vide and puts it out in up to 1080p through the HDMI so you only need one thin lead to your TV.

Also, the build on these things is amazing. This monster weighs in at around 25kg. A 2 man job.

Plus, the innovation is all there if you want to be securely future proofed.

And the main thing is that this is a flagship receiver in a very good and most-popular Onkyo range. The best of the bunch. Therefore, it sounds utterly amazing.

You pays your money...as you say, and you get a bargain. Hottest deal ever I'd say.

And, no I don't have one, but I do have its baby brother, the 805, and I ahve heard the 905 in the shops and it is, well, mind-blowingly good.

Once again, you are either a jester or a fool.

Awful reputation for build quality you say, is that why they have won endless awards. There's nothing wrong with the remote, go into a stockist and check it out.

You can probably get a better-built amp without all the bells and whistles - which are useless for an awful lot of instances.


Probably? Your not convincing me.

List the movies that have DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution Audio and even Dolby TrueHD encodings - not that many.


Lol, that's a silly thing to say, have you not heard of future proofing?

The upscaling is a moot point - upscale a crapp*y picture and you get cra*p upscaled.


That applies to anything that upscales, not just this amp.

Ahh, so where do we start!!

Learning remote - hardly a new or expensive concept:p

I've got Blu-ray, I've got HD-DVD players - 6 in total. Still doesn't get around the fact that you have to buy the discs - and most of them don't have the latest audio formats encoded. I've got around 120 so I can see that right now:p

The upscaling of the PS3 and most HD-DVD players is more than a par for this, players which you've gotta have to play HD discs anyway.

The fact that it weighs 25 kg is a great big so fecking what?:p

This is the AV equivalent of a KIA motor car - loaded with goodies, cheap but hardly something you'd want to boast about:p
#16
This is an awsome receiver, if you are in any doubt loads of reviews are fab or drop over to avforums and get some hands on reviews from other members, you would be hard pushed for a bad review.

Also you can replace you stereo system with inputs into this as it will easily give better quality.
#17
So has it a connection for a bit of string - so you can listing with a can in the next room?

Onkyo is one of the best makes out there! If you don't like the brand for some reason that's fine but stop making out they are c**p because they are far from it, you don't know what your talking about!!!

Regular readers will know that Onkyo made a clean sweep in our multichannel receiver Awards last year, knocking arch-rivals Denon, Marantz and Yamaha off the top spot in all three price categories.

You are obviously someone who needs third party validation of your purchasing decision! These magazines also maintain that there are qualitatively visible differences between brands of HDMI cables FFS:p

£83 for an HDMI cable!!! HA! HA! HA!:prop:

QUOTE: "you benefit from awesome contrast, masses of sought-after detail, stunning depth of field, plus class-leading ability with rapid movement."

All that from an HDMI cable!!! WTF is it doing to all of those 1s and 0s that a £3 cable isn't?? It must be the extra £80 that makes it so much better!!!

There is obviously no correlation between advertising spend with these publications and getting positive reviews is there?:thinking:

Jeez, buy this amp if you want but don't position it as the bargain of the century 'cos it ain't. For most people, it is over-featured, over-priced and the ugliest sonofabitching piece of AV equipment available right now:p

No I don't need third party validation to justify my purchasing decision! I don't understand how you can put Onkyo down and this amp when there is so much evidence to show that they are a top brand!
As for the HDMI cable, yes it would be better than a £3 one obviously, it's all down to the materials and quality of the materials used, just the same as a £100 scart lead produces a better picture than one that costs £2.99, the same as speaker cable costing £250 per meter will produce better sound than speaker cable costing £1.50 per meter, just the same as a component lead costing £50 compared to one that costs a fiver. You obviously don't know your stuff.

If you have nothing positive to say about the deal other than basically say it's rubbish then post a link to a far more superior product for the same if not less money with the same if not better specs, if not then don't post!

Bargain of the century it most certainly is for an amp, what on earth is wrong with you. To some people it may well be too much for what they need which is fine, but for someone in the market for something like this it's a steal!

Please go and do some research before spouting off about something you clearly know nothing about.

A digital signal will be passed over any old piece of wire - seen a broadband cable lately?

1's and 0's are all that are passed and if they are not transmitted in the correct order the information fails. There is no quality to a 1 or a 0:p

Analogue is different, but that isn't the question is it?

I'm afraid that you are the one who is guilty of "not knowing your stuff"!!:whistling:

It will, but the further it travels the more it degrades. Over a ****** old piece of wire it'll degrade quicker. Expensive cable is a must for longer runs, but your £3 HDMI cable will do for your bedroom.

Comparing an Onkyo to a Kia also shows a lack of understanding. Have you ever driven a Kia? It was worst thing I've ever driven.

Unless you're running 10 meters or more, then this isn't an issue. Furthermore, the signal loss is apparant - it's there or not! More info:

As pointed out, if you think an expensive HDMI cable can produce a better 1 or a 0 then it's obviously you who doesn't know their stuff. The others pass an analogue signal that will suffer from poor components so fair enough up to a certain price point it will make a difference. However anyone spending £250 a meter on speaker cable needs their head checked, unless of course you have money to burn!

I bought the 875 today with a pair of these and these, one of these and finally one of these.

Got the amp for £599 and £100 off the speaker package.

It all sounds absolutely amazing!

Around the same price that you have spent but I suggest it is a much better package. It's a better-balanced system with quality components at value-for-money prices

Component is best for analogue needs but requires source and display being capable of handling it but if your source and display is cacpable of utilising HDMI, then that could be best - for example, and upscaling DVD player and an HDMI enabled screen.

Maybe you should state your needs a little more?
#31
Thanks for your help and sorry for the ambiguity.

I have a reciever with 2 HDMI in. I only need my PS3 to connect to this (its the only HD thing I have).

I do however have a Sky Box and was wondering how to connect this?
#32
If it's not Sky HD, you're pretty much stuck with Scart. A good cable can be got from here for £15:

http://www.audiovisualonline.co.uk/dynamic/eshop_products.set/ref/1534/philex-thor-scart-to-scart-interconnect-length-1.5m/display.html

An optical out audio cable can improve sound:

1 mtr for £5 or 2 mtr £6 - longer lengths available here:

http://www.audiovisualonline.co.uk/dynamic/eshop_products.set/ref/1434/fisual-digital-optical-cable-pro-install-series/display.html

Your Receiver's audio capabilities will determine the PS3 options but most straightforwardly, an HDMI in and out is the usual option. £3 cables here:

That should have you sorted:thumbsup:

It is an appropriate amp within a better-balanced, and ultimately, a better-sounding system for around the same money you paid for your equipment.

You exposed yourself to be the utter fool you are with your Richer Sounds "specials"

No, read all the posts again. You're now just behaving like a child - which is indicative really.

I've offered clear alternatives to your "bargain", which deliver quality and true value-for-money. You've bought a Richer Sounds deal fest.

And yes, I know the equipment I have cited.

I own the BK sub, the smaller Yamaha dspax 761 amp and Mission rears and centre, partnering TDL RTL3 fronts in one set up I have. It is really good and is better value for money than sticking a huge lump of an amp in the middle of a system and tacking on budget components just to make it all work.:p

I say again, Gale sub:?

Your set up is like strapping a V8 to a bicycle and hanging on for grim death:p
#37
You use too many smilies (tro compensate for a lot of drivel), and you put other people's choices down. Naughty.

Plus, it's a shame, because you have spoken wisely on, for example, HDMI leads, and the fact that the Onkyo deseves better speakers.

Comparing that Yamah amp to the Onkyo was just laughable though. So we'll treat your comments in jest and be done. Off, little jester, and malign the court of a lesser forum!
#38
Thanks for that, I have SKY + so I think im stuck with scart. Does that mean I cant watch Sky in 5.1?

I have a Yamaha 761XP which I brought after finding a deal on here.

Obviously the PS3 will go on with a HDMI to get the true HD or 5.1.

Thanks for that, I have SKY + so I think im stuck with scart. Does that mean I cant watch Sky in 5.1?

I have a Yamaha 761XP which I brought after finding a deal on here.

Obviously the PS3 will go on with a HDMI to get the true HD or 5.1.


Yes you can use the audio ouput on the Sky+ box with an optical cable to the Yammy:thumbsup:

You use too many similies (tro compensate for a lot of drivel), and you put other people's choices down. Naughty.

Plus, it's a shame, because you have spoken wisely on, for example, HDMI leads, and the fact that the Onkyo deseves better speakers.

Comparing that Yamah amp to the Onkyo was just laughable though. So we'll treat your comments in jest and be done. Off, little jester, and malign the court of a lesser forum!


Yoo really haven't a clue have you:p
